A MI-BOX® can be used for traditional storage use or some of these great ideas instead.

If you’re tight on space around the house and can’t seem to make room for a little personal living space, there may be a solution available that doesn’t include listing your home on the market. A MI-BOX® mobile container can be used for almost anything. When you think about it, when you rent a storage unit, you’re simply renting additional space. A storage container rental is a great way to add a little extra space at home.


Check out some of these creative, out-of-the-box uses:


1. A She-Shed or Man Cave

You’ve probably heard of the term ‘man cave’ before, but if you’ve haven’t: it’s typically a designated area in the home that caters to all things male. Think pool table, arcade games, wet bar, or selection of musical instruments.

However, you’ve maybe never heard of a she-shed before. It’s the same basic idea as a man cave but caters to women instead of men. Women who appreciate a little quiet time to enjoy their hobbies (i.e., crafting, quilting, painting, writing, etc.) will no doubt embrace the idea of a she-shed.

Instead of making room in your home for one of these functional spaces, consider renting a portable container. These convenient pop-up locations are perfect for transforming into a man cave or a she-shed.


2. MI-BOX® Garden Shed

If you’re tired of your garden tools taking up prime real estate in your garage or basement, it might be time to consider renting a mobile storage container. Simply phone Space Centre Storage and arrange a MI-BOX® drop off. Your makeshift garden shed will be up and running in no time.


3. Library and Reading Nook

If your book collection is outgrowing its current space, move your books and favourite reading chair into a portable container. Add a rug and a reading lamp, and convert your container into the perfect spot to curl up and get lost in one of your favourite books.


4. A Personal Home Gym

Gym equipment can take up a ton of space, especially cardio machines. If your basement is starting to overflow with gym equipment, order up a portable container from a local provider. You can create your very own gym outside the home and create a little more breathing room in your home.


5. A Temporary Playhouse

Give your kids a safe place to play outside, and set up a temporary playhouse in a mobile container. Simply load in some of their favourite toys, sit back, and let them play. You can even take it a step further by setting up some of their favourite outdoor toys outside the door. This way, you can finally finish up some backyard chores while they keep themselves occupied while staying within arm’s reach.
