Smart Hack for Resident Storage: Privacy, Safety, Ambiance and Convenience

Are you looking for a way to add amenities to your property that residents will seek out and be willing to pay a little more for? Investing in high quality additional storage can provide a quick ROI. Bradyl Binsprivate apartment storage lockers are an ideal option for keeping residents’ personal belongings on-property, as well as safe, secure and separated in multi-family building common areas. Bradyl BinsFeature opaque walls for privacy rather than wire mesh.  The storage lockers themselves  are a bright, clean white with doors in a variety of colors offering customizable configurations and sizes for hard-to-fit spaces,. But don’t overlook making the space in which you install them more welcoming and attractive, while also making residents feel safe in more secluded areas of the building. What can you do to make your storage space more user-friendly for your residents?

Safety

  • Security Cameras
  • Door locks
  • Well lit
  • Use of a key fob for tracking who enters/ exits is good for security
  • Organization keeps the area free of debris that can be a fire hazard

Lighting

Focusing on how to adequately light your storage space is key. A well-lit storage space is more inviting, and safer for residents. Bradyl apartment storage lockers feature bright white walls which reflect light adding to the brightness of the area, while wire mesh ceilings allow the lighting in your storage space to penetrate the units.  From LED wallpacks to overhead fluorescents, there are a variety of lighting options to brighten any storage space configuration. Make sure that you have enough lighting so that each area of your storage space is bright and inviting.

Paint

To enhance the effectiveness of your lighting choices, focus on adding a coat or two of light-colored paint to the walls and ceiling (if applicable) where your apartment storage lockers are installed. Even if you’ve installed storage in a basement or underground area, you can brighten the space with complementary paint. This is also a great opportunity to tie in your building’s color scheme.  With 20 door colors to choose from, the storage room can really become an extension of your brand, and not an overlooked dark and dingy room.

Flooring

Any flooring installed under apartment storage lockers must be robust and able to stand up to the wear and tear of storage needs. In addition, it should make easy work of moving belongings in and out of a storage unit. Just because the flooring in your storage area must be functional doesn’t mean it can’t be pleasing to the eyes. You’ll want to pick an option that you can easily maintain and that will endure. Many people opt for a standard concrete floor, and add options for finishes that will maintain its durability and improve its aesthetic  such as epoxy garage floor coating with added anti-slip grit.  Self draining flooring panels are a great option to keep belongings raised off the floor in case there is any water on the ground.  There are industrial strength options available as well. Consult a specialist who can evaluate what works best for your space and needs.

Convenience

  • Simply offering storage on site increases convenience for residents
  • 24-7 access using a keyfob rather than having to have the door opened by a manager increases convenience
  • Having your storage room in an area of the building that is accessible to residents
