Almondwood Self Storage Website Design Elements

Abaton Consulting recently updated this website to improve the design layout and to improve navigation.

Read on to learn what was updated.

Website Features

Almondwood Self Storage is a business card website. The site consists of the homepage, contact page, and privacy policy page. Information about the storage rentals is provided all on the homepage. Location information and a map helps customers locate the facility. The Contact Us page provides a web-based contact form along with standard contact information.

Since this is essentially a single-page website, we needed a navigation system that can direct visitors to the section on the homepage that contained relevant information. For this, fragmented identifiers were the perfect website design solution.

For this to occur, we first needed to rework the homepage. Since the page was originally created as a single page, we needed to break it into sections and add fragment identifiers to the various sections. Fragment identifiers appear as ID tags on the page.

For example: id=”convenient-location”

These identifiers can then be added to url strings.

For example

When website visitors access the link. The requested page is loaded and the page automatically scrolls down to the specified fragment identifier.

With Almondwood Self Storage, the fragment identifiers were added to the navigation menu at the top which created links to content, which can help search engine optimization (SEO) and creates a more interesting website to explore.

Almondwood Self Storage Website Navigation

Almondwood Self Storage uses a singe page information layout that is perfect for fragment identifier navigation.

Updated Hero Image

Actually, it is more like we added a hero image. Originally, only business information and the tagline were located at the top of the page. This did not resonate well with website visitors and made the site ordinary.

To improve the look of the website we included a hero image that was both eye-catching and reinforced the concept as presented by the tagline –  “Simplify Your Life with Almondwood Self Storage.”

The image, which only includes minimal elements, emphasizes that a spartan living environment can be extremely relaxing and comfortable.

Location Information

A Google Map was included on the website. The map helps people initially find the location of the Davis, CA storage facility. 

What makes Almondwood Self Storage unique is that it is conveniently located. It is mixed in a neighborhood that has homes, apartments, shopping center, and businesses. 

Another amenity is the “drive-up” feature for all the storage units. Use the website map to find the location and drive right up to your storage unit. Makes loading and unloading easy.
