LONDON, March 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
With over half of British consumers saving money by entertaining at home instead of going out, some Brits are struggling to find enough recreation space in their homes. A recent survey conducted by self storage specialist Easistore, reveals that a quarter of Brits would appreciate more living room space for comfortable sofa seating. This is especially true of women, with a whopping 44% opting to use extra space for seating. In contrast, a quarter of men are most drawn to the idea of installing an entertainment or television system.
Scotland is the only region which places more importance on a dining area than sofa seating, with 21% prioritising this. With new builds in the UK up to eight square metres short of the recommended size, it's no wonder some of us can't find enough space for both dining and seating areas in our homes.
Paul Glenister of Easistore comments, "With new houses in the UK smaller than ever before, it's important to effectively use the space you have. De-cluttering by moving unnecessary items into storage can free up valuable living space. Many of us keep items in our homes which we don't need every day, but don't want to get rid of. Self storage is the perfect way to house these items, creating more living space and making UK homes more comfortable."
After sofa seating, space for an entertainment system is universally the most popular choice, with 18% of us opting for this. Across the board, Brits place less importance on having extra space for hobbies, with only 12% selecting this.
Glenister continues, "Self storage can be the perfect solution if you're not ready to move into a bigger property but still want to enjoy an un-cluttered living area with plenty of space for seating and entertainment. Easistore self storage Kent has a range of storage spaces available, from the size of a small locker up to the size of a large double garage, perfect for home storage needs. With storage spaces available from £1 per day, self storage really can be a cost effective solution to free up more space in the home."
Easistore self storage Kent is located in Crawley, Tunbridge Wells and Edenbridge, Kent.
