Three Reasons Why A Self-Storage Unit Is Perfect For Artists

If you are an artist, your life might just be a little bit cluttered. Someone once said that “when you have a creative mind, it doesn’t stop going.” The creative process can be messy, and it’s important to have a way to organize. At Affordable Family Storage, we think that a self-storage unit is perfect for artists. In today’s blog post, we’ll give you three reasons why you should invest in a self-storage unit as an artist.

  1. They Are Cheap

Artists have a lot of tools and equipment that they need for their work. As such, they need somewhere to keep all of that stuff, but, given the nature of their business, they won’t have a ton of money to spend on a solution. Self-storage units give you more than enough space to store your equipment for a low monthly cost. Compared to other storage solutions, there aren’t many that are cheaper than a self-storage unit at Affordable Family Storage

  1. They Can Be Tax Deductible

If art is your full-time job, you may be able to qualify for tax exemptions for all of your storage needs. There are a lot of tax exemptions available for work-related spending, including storage, and your 1040 may indicate that you qualify. As an artist, a self-storage unit is great for keeping your work secure and protected as well as keeping your equipment stored.

You can keep your equipment at home and clog up whatever space you have left, or you can get a storage unit to split the difference. For amateur artists, it might not be worth it. But for full-time artists who may qualify for tax exemptions, it is well worth it.

  1. They Can Make A Great Workspace

While most people who rent out a storage space use it for storage purposes only, a storage unit can be a great workspace for artists. For many artists, their garage or workshop is their workspace, but not all people have access to those spots. For people who live in apartments or even condos with smaller garage spaces, finding a workspace can seem impossible.  

At Affordable Family Storage, a self-storage unit could be your workspace solution. You can invest in temperature-controlled units to make sure your work is kept in the best position, and our spaces provide ample room for you to work and store your pieces.
