Just How Big is a 5×5 Storage Unit, Really?

When looking for a storage unit that’s right for your needs, you have a lot of things to consider. One of the main considerations is what you’ll need to store — and that will determine what size storage unit you need. You obviously want to be able to fit everything you need in your unit, but you also don’t want to spend more than you need to on an oversized unit. If you have just a few items or some seasonal belongings to store, our 5×5 storage units may be the solution you need.

How Big is a 5×5 Storage Unit

5×5 storage units are 5 feet deep and 5 feet wide, as the name suggests. That means 25 square feet of space, plus room to go upwards. Compared to the rest of our storage unit options, this is the smallest unit, but it may give you more space than you think. If you’re trying to picture the size of this storage unit, think of a small walk-in closet. With the size of this unit, you might find it to be the perfect solution for seasonal decorations, to store items during home renovations or for dorm room items in between semesters.

What Fits in a 5×5 Storage Unit

A smaller storage unit can mean that many things won’t fit inside. So, here are a few ideas of what you can place in 5×5 storage units:

  • Full-size or twin mattress.
  • Dresser
  • Desk
  • Chairs
  • Carpets or area rugs.
  • Baby accessories.
  • Filing cabinet.
  • Office supplies.
  • Business records.
  • Small office equipment.
  • Christmas decorations, including a Christmas tree.
  • Seasonal clothing.
  • Skiing or snowboarding equipment.
  • Fishing tackle.
  • Camping gear.
  • Garden tools.
  • Hobby supplies.
  • Pool equipment and toys.
  • Several mid-size moving boxes.
