How Big Is a 5x5 Storage Unit?

How Big Is a 5x5 Storage Unit?


When you’re considering a storage unit rental, one of the first things you need to determine is how much space you need. With so many options, many people end up choosing a unit with much more space than they need. And when you opt for an oversized unit, you end up spending your hard-earned money on more space than you need. If you’re only planning on storing seasonal items or some business supplies, a 5x5 storage unit might be the right for you.

A 5x5 unit — as the name implies — is five feet deep and five feet wide. If you need help visualizing the size, think about a standard closest, a half-bath or check out our size guide. They’re generally the smallest storage unit you can find, so they’re perfect if you only have a few items.

What Fits In a 5x5 Storage Unit?

A 5x5 storage unit is the size of an average closet and can typically fit items such as a twin or full mattress set, a desk and several medium cardboard boxes. They’re perfect for:

  • Holiday decorations, including Christmas, Halloween, Thanksgiving and birthday.
  • Holiday and birthday presents – far away from peeping eyes.
  • Children’s toys, clothes and books.
  • Seasonal clothing such as winter coats and sweaters
  • Student storage during the summer or winter breaks.
  • Extra space during a home renovation project.
  • Filing cabinets or file boxes for business records.
  • Business inventory and merchandise.
  • Small furniture items including chairs, a desk or a chest of drawers.
  • End tables.
  • Small office equipment like printers or scanners.
  • Sports equipment such as bicycles, kayaks, skis, golf clubs, hockey gear, baseball equipment and surf boards.
  • Fishing gear.
  • Twin and full-size mattress sets.
  • Several small to medium storage boxes.
  • Electronics including televisions and computers.
  • Collections including vinyl records.
  • Lamps

A 5x5 unit can hold the furnishings of a small bedroom or office space, but the variety of items you can store are nearly endless.
