Storage Snapshots: Photography Equipment

When I launched my photography business, I knew that I needed more space than I had at home. That's when I decided to rent a local storage unit to keep my studio gear organized. I spent a lot of time researching backdrops, staging, racks, and storage tips to keep all of my gear organized and protected when I wasn't shooting. With so many photographers looking for ways to expand their operations, I decided to share my storage tips so that I could possibly help others with their needs. I hope the information here makes it easier for you to organize your equipment and grow your studio.

Storage Units Often Hold Furniture For Many Reasons

Brian Hamilton

Furniture is one of those things you can end up with an excessive amount of that you can't easily just find some extra space for. This is why so many people turn to storage facilities for their furniture storage needs. Here, you will learn more about reasons for storing furniture, as well as tips for doing so. 

Furniture Storage Comes in Handy for Many Reasons

Moving - If you are moving, you may want to put your furniture into a storage unit for a short period of time. This can be a good option if you are moving into a smaller place, and you aren't yet sure how you will be decorating and which furniture you plan on keeping. You can bring the furniture you decide to use to the new home and do what you choose with the rest of it left in storage. 

Collecting - You may like to collect certain types of furniture, such as antique furniture or furniture you can repurpose. If you don't have the space at your home to continue adding to your collection, then a storage unit will allow you to continue adding pieces. The same unit can also hold materials you may need, such as upholstery, padding, tools, etc. 

Redecorating - When you decide to get new furniture, you will need to make room for it by getting rid of your current furniture. This can take some time, and it can be put in storage while you decide what to do with it. 

You Should Go With Climate-Controlled Storage for Furniture

A word of advice you should really consider following is to go with a climate-controlled storage unit for your furniture. This way, the upholstery, the wood, and even the hardware will be kept at a temperature and humidity level that ensures they will remain in good condition. 

You Want to Store the Furniture Carefully

If you have a good amount of furniture to go into a storage unit, then you want to make sure you have a large enough storage unit that you won't have to stack the pieces in a way that can end up causing damage to them. 


When you have a storage facility for the purpose of keeping your furniture safe, you will have access to the unit any time you need to get in. This means if you pick up a piece of furniture unexpectedly, you can make a quick stop at the unit and have a place for it right away.
