Indoor, climate controlled hallway at a storage facility.

Choosing the right storage unit can be tough, and unless you’ve measured out every item you’re planning on storing, it can be difficult to gauge exactly what size unit you need. For those who maybe don’t have a ton of stuff, but are looking for adequate space, deciding between a 5×5 and 5×10 unit can be tricky. To help make sure you’re getting the right amount of storage space for your needs, we’ve put together a simple guide that’ll help you figure out if a 5×10 storage unit is right for you.

How Much Space is in a 5’ x 10’ Unit?

A 5×10 storage unit is 50 square feet worth of space. So if you have a giant sectional couch that’s long enough to fit a family of 5, plus a couple of full-grown dogs, this unit size probably isn’t right for you.
