In addition to the more "active" parts of a home, most homes have storage for the things we don't need right now.
Some of the factors that distinguish different storage are
- size or capacity
- protection of the items stored
Many people complain that their homes don't have enough storage or that they can never find the things they have stored.
In addition to in home storage, some people rent external storage. It can be used for the items that are not frequently used or as a way to make it easier when many furnishings are changed, such as a move.
