Customizations That Will Help You Get the Most From Your Storage Container
If you have always longed for some extra space in your home or business in terms of storage, then a cargo container could be the solution you’ve been searching for. Storage containers in Raleigh, NC come in several sizes not to mention you can easily customize them. You can have extra space applications for your cargo container including craft rooms, sheds, workshops, music studios, guesthouses, and offices. Customizing your shipping container allows you to get the perfect solution for your storage needs. Here are some of the best and most popular customizations you can get.
Shipping Container Flooring
The floors in cargo containers are usually treated using special chemicals to prevent insect infestation and corrosion. You can replace the flooring if you desire, for your specific needs and goals. Steel overlay flooring is a popular modification for your floor but vinyl flooring is good if you want something easy to clean and durable. Vinyl flooring also gives you variety in terms of thickness, colors, and textures that you can choose from. You can use a spray-on truck bed-liner to toughen or waterproof the floors. It’s a great and very strong medium. It is ideal for extreme temperature climates and it will not split, peel, crack, or warp.
Skylights and Windows
Adding any of these two is a great and cost-friendly way to increase the natural lighting for your cargo container. If you want to increase the security of your windows, you can add security bars or used reinforced windows. Skylights give you an excellent alternative if you want to have natural lighting while also paying mind to your security. Skylights bring light into the cargo container without revealing the contents to anyone who is on ground level.
Believe it or not you have the option of installing phone or data lines, outlets, and lights within your shipping container. You can also add exterior lighting (e.g. floodlights or porch light). Power sources usually come in the standard 110V with either four outlets or two outlets. They can either be exposed on the wall paneling or flush mounted. Overhead lighting is a popular lighting modification with cargo containers, it gives you the natural feeling of a skylight. If there is no power on-location and your container is in a remote place, then LED lighting is a great alternative. You can hook up LED lights to a small battery to light up the interior of the container with minimal power needed.
Adding shelving to your container can help to declutter it and keep everything more organized. You can even have the shelving put in before the cargo container is delivered to you. The installed shelves usually hang from the D rings on the inside of your shipping container and you will not need to make any other exterior modifications. You can easily adjust these shelves just as easily as you can remove them. You can also just as easily move in standing racks of shelves for even more storage.
An added advantage of modifying your cargo container is that you can paint it any color you want. You can paint the container to camouflage with shrubbery and trees, match your building, or represent your brand. Or, if you just want your continuer to NOT stick out, we can paint it a nice natural light color so it won’t stick out like a sore thumb.
