It’s a viable question that needs to be considered before you start your quest for storage. If not, you could end up with a much larger storage unit than needed, costing you additional money.
A good rule of thumb is to estimate 50-75 sq ft of storage for each major room in your home/apartment assuming that you have a standard amount of furniture and keepsakes.
Example: a 1 bedroom comfortably fit in a 10*10 (100 sq ft) storage unit however a 3 bedroom home might require a 10*30 (300 sq ft) or larger storage unit.
While keeping all of this in mind, be sure to account for the additional boxes you will have for closets & bathrooms and consider leaving an isle in your unit making it easier to retrieve items in the future.
If you are moving from a house, don’t forget all of that important stuff in the attic and garage as it too will require storage space.
