Going Home For The Summer? Our Brighton Storage Units Will Help

After a year at university, going home or going travelling for the summer will be a really lovely change. But what do you do with any furniture you have brought for your student accommodation? Our Brighton storage units will help.

At the University of Brighton alone, there are close to 18,000 students. Adding in students from the University of Sussex, Brighton MET and BIMM, it is safe to say Brighton is home to a large student population. 

With so many students, there is a large level of student housing. Going to university and living on your own for the first time is a big deal as it allows you to get your first taste of independence. For many people this is the highlight of their university life because they are free to do whatever they want, whenever they want. It is that moment of moving from childhood to adulthood. 

Of course, you will also have to do other adult things such as becoming much more acquainted with the hoover and washing machine than you were when you lived at home with your parents but the chores are far outweighed by the good for many people! 

Making Your Student House Your Own 

A big part of finding your independence comes from making your student house your own. With rented accommodation, this has to be done in such a way that your landlord won’t be angry and deny you your deposit when you move out. 

There are some really easy and fun ways in order to make your student house feel like home and keep the landlord happy. 

Find A Statement Piece 

On a student budget you may be looking for cheap and cheerful furniture but finding a statement piece from a furniture store or from a charity shop will really help to make your house/room feel more like you. 

Add Artwork

An easy and cheaper way to create a statement is to add some artwork to the walls. You could have a trip to Hobbycraft for some canvases and paints. This will not only be a lot of fun but you will end up with a one of a kind piece of artwork. 

If you aren’t really into creative endeavours, there are lots of options out there on sites such as Etsy. Many creatives sell prints for extremely reasonable prices so it will be easy to add some character to the walls of your house. 

Let There Be Light!

A fun way to add character to a place is to add new lighting. This will not only add more character but will add more light and create a warm, welcoming atmosphere.

Clear fairy lights are a super cheap and easy way to do this. You could run them around the top of your wall, making them into a feature. Make sure to go for clear though as coloured could make it feel a little Christmassy!

Add Some House Plants 

Having house plants in your home really brings a home to life and there are many more benefits to having plants within your home. They purify the air and aid concentration and focus. Perfect for your university room. 

Nature is also great for relieving stress and anxiety and if you don’t have easy access to nature, house plants can also help you relax. University can be a really stressful, tense time for many people so having plants to help is a great idea. 


Your sofa may have had to come from a charity shop or Gumtree so it might not be 100% to your taste. A great and cheap way to get around this is to add accessories to it. You could cover it with a blanket and add pillows. 

This works around your entire home and is an easy way to show your personality. 

How Our Brighton Storage Units Will Help 

No matter how you have made your house your own, when you head home for the summer, you will not want to part with all your furniture, accessories, lighting etc. but you may not have the room to store it all at your parents house. 

Our Brighton storage units will help. (We can’t store your plants so take them home with you.)Price Match

We know money can be a little tight during your student years so we want to always make sure you are getting the best deal with us. Our price match allows us to do this as you can rest assured that no storage in the surrounding area will be cheaper than our Brighton storage units.

Speaking of worries, we know storing your belongings with a storage unit, particularly one that may be far away from your parents home, can be nerve racking. You want your belongings to be safe and secure.
