Renting out a spare room

Great idea… but just what will you do with all the stuff you’ve got stored in there?

Renting out a spare room

The cost of owning a home in London is expensive. If you’re lucky enough to have a spare room, have you ever considered renting it out to generate some extra income to help towards the mortgage costs? Many people don’t actually consider this as an option, as they often use their spare room as a storage area. Let’s face it, how often have you had to set aside a couple of hours before some guests arrive to tidy up and make sure that they can actually get in the spare room, let alone sleep on the bed?

From gym equipment and suitcases to tools and paint pots, the spare room is a perfect place to keep them all. Until you need to use it as a room that is!

So if you decide getting a housemate is the option for you then just how do you tidy up the spare room – permanently? That’s where a storage unit comes in. Just treat it as your spare room away from home. You can just move all those things currently residing there straight to your very own storage unit – and you can still get them whenever you need them. How often do you use your suitcases and that tin of bathroom paint anyway. Make your spare room space work for you and who knows – you could afford to move the property ladder sooner than you expected to.
