10×10 Storage Units
10 x 10 Storage Units
If you’ve begun the search for the perfect storage unit for your belongings, you’ve likely come across units of all sizes. And sometimes it’s tricky to imagine just how much space that unit will provide.
To help you make sense of it all, we’ve covered everything you need to know about 10×10 storage units and what you can fit inside them.
How Big is a 10’ x 10’ Storage Unit?
Before considering how many items can fit in 10’ x 10’ storage, we’re going to touch on the size of a 10’ by 10’ storage unit in general. So, how big is a 10’ x 10’ storage unit? It’s 10 feet by 10 feet, so it’s 100 square feet in total.
To get a feel for how big that is, consider the fact that an average bedroom size is about 132 square feet or 11 feet by 12 feet (closet not included). Therefore, a 10 x 10 storage unit is roughly the size of a small bedroom.
If you want to picture it another way, take a moment to imagine the average bedroom with one small closet. Now take that small closet, double its size, and subtract that closet space from your 132 square foot bedroom. You should have about 100 square feet or the size of a 10’ x 10’ storage unit.
What Fits Inside a 10’ x 10’ Storage Unit
There is a wide range of items that fit inside a 10’ x 10’ storage unit. Though not enormous, a 10’ x 10’ storage unit can fit a bed of any size, a large sofa, or a large dining room table. Depending on the ceiling height of the unit, 10’ x 10’ storage may be able to accommodate two or three of these big-ticket items at once, such as a fridge, bookshelf, and dinner table.
When determining what can fit in a 10×10 storage unit, it really comes down to the kinds of items you’re looking to store. These units are pretty spacious, so you can easily store a combination of items and still have room to spare. That might mean a few big belongings and several boxes or some smaller items and many boxes.
For those with large, sensitive collections, 10’ x 10’ climate-controlled storage may be a great option.
Other Items That Can Fit Into a 10 by 10 Storage Unit
What else can fit in a 10×10 storage unit? Well, considering that units of this size can hold two to three rooms’ worth of boxes, the answer to that question is, “A lot!”
Of course, it’ll depend on the size of your boxes, but your 10×10 storage unit could easily fit around 100 medium-sized boxes if you stack them from the floor to the ceiling.

How Do You Pack a 10 x 10 Storage Unit?
When you’re ready to pack your 10 by 10 storage unit, take inventory and determine which items you’ll need to access most often. If you plan to ride your mountain bike every weekend, store it at the front of your unit, but if you don’t need your holiday lights until next December, place those further in the back.
Next, start with your heaviest items and place those on the bottom, stacking lighter items on top. Be sure to leave a walkway so you can reach your items in the back.
