3 tips to change your living environment overseas!

Since the pandemic, many people have spent more time at home. The workplace is also changing to work-from-home arrangements. Thus, the space inside the house has become more important than ever. How can we optimise and change our living home environment?

Here are three simple tips!

Lighting, lighting, lighting.

This is so important, we feel the need to emphasise it thrice! The one most crucial element for any room or space to look more spacious boils down to the lighting. Natural light works wonders in opening up the interior of a room. If you don’t have access to natural lighting, consider painting the walls and ceiling white for an open and airy aesthetic. No more feeling cooped up and confined in a small space!

Revamp your bedroom

For many, the bedroom is a sanctuary. It’s where we spend the majority of our lives resting, sleeping, studying and working. There’s no place safer than the comfort of our bedroom. In a new country, it’d be best to replicate your own bedroom back home as closely as possible. This gives you a sense of familiarity as well as security. Jazz it up a little, of course, with scented candles and a good sound system!

Keep your home clean and tidy

Coming home after a long day of work to an empty house or room may be disheartening. But on the bright side, it’ll look amazing if you keep it clean and tidy! Being in a foreign country is a daunting task, and many of us would pack more than what is needed. As my mother used to say, “you’ll never know when you may need this.” From experience, these items would just be lying around taking up space. Should you have too much stuff around, consider decluttering your space and store what you don’t need with us at Extra Space Asia, where you can access it any time, any day, as our facilities are open 24/7!


There’s no place like home. But while we’re somewhere else, let’s soldier on, and do what we must to rise above these unique times. If you’re searching for a safe and secure storage facility to store your personal and family items, feel free to visit any of our seven storage facilities in Korea. Or simply call us at 1899-8708 to speak with our professional consultants to learn more about our various storage solutions.

As the spring season ends, it’s time to start cleaning up your house and closet to welcome summer. Here are three clever ways to prepare your home for the sunny season and properly store your items to maintain them in good condition all year round.


  1.  Carpets

Thick and heavy carpets can help to add warmth from winter to spring. However, the carpet might add extra heat around the home during the warmer seasons. Cool off by storing your carpets and reusing them again during winter.


Before storing it in your storage unit, remember to clean it thoroughly to prevent moulds and dust accumulation. Clean from at least two different directions to absorb all the dust on the carpet. Afterwards, it would be good to use a protective sheet to wrap it up for long-term storage in your storage unit.


  1.  Bedding

Goodbye, spring comforter! It’s time to replace your thick fluffy comforter with a thin material blanket. Like your carpet, spring bedding should also be clean and stain-free before you pack and store them.


There are no fixed cleaning rules here. You can either use a washing machine or go to a laundromat. Just remember that your comforters should be completely dry before storage, as any leftover moisture may cause moulds in your storage unit! To optimise your space, fold them neatly and use a vacuum storage bag to compress the size of your winter comforters.


  1.  Large bulky seasonal clothing

Carpets, comforters, curtains and even clothing used during spring are very bulky and take more space than other everyday household items. Fret not, if you’re running out of space to store these bulky items at home! Extra Space Self-Storage is here to help.


Our self-storage units are air-conditioned, so your temperature-sensitive items can always be kept in their best condition. When you store your personal and family items with Extra Space Asia, you can also enjoy the freedom to access your items 24/7, any time, any day.
