Once you make your pick of an interior designer to help you make your LA abode go from bland to wow, you should also make plans for your home to get your project done. If your makeover involves some minor remodeling, you might find yourself scrambling to shift furniture and other household objects around. That can create a cramped and cluttered space. You can turn to self storage to make your life easier during this time. Renting a self storage unit in Los Angeles costs around $260/month. Most people tend to rent a 10’x10’ unit, but if you’re planning on putting more than a bedroom’s worth of furniture in storage, you will probably need to upgrade the unit size. A 10’x15’ or 10’x20’ unit should do the trick.
