Have you ever looked at your garage and felt overwhelmed by the amount of stuff in this space? Most families use the garage as their storage space and over time, without organization, it can become quite overwhelming. A messy garage makes it hard for you and the whole family to locate things that you need or even to park your car inside. Let us help you tackle the issue and embrace the garage organization that your neighborhood will envy.
First of all, you need to remove things you don’t need or locate them somewhere else in the house. If possible, engage all family members in this step so that you don’t accidentally throw out something that a family member still finds useful. If it’s just junk, determine if it’s still recyclable and proceed accordingly. If there are items that you want to donate or gift somebody, set them aside and put them in boxes. Bear in mind that there are certain items that shouldn’t be stored in the garage, including propane tanks, paper products, pet food, etc.
Once you are able to free up some empty space, it’s time to categorize the remaining objects in the garage. Below are some typical categories:
If you plan to park the car inside, especially for the winter, you need to count it as a category as well.
This step will be unique to each household. Reflect on what you and your family need to have access to most often and your garage layout. Visualize how you can make use of the corners and wall space in your garage. If you have time, create an outline of all the areas so that everyone involved in your organization project can be on the same page with you.
There are so many organizational tools the consumer market for you to utilize. From stack bins to pegboards, cabinets to corner shelves, you will be amazed by the options that are available. We often recommend our customers to install custom garage shelving as it is one of the most effective ways to maximize the garage space. It allows you to make use of the wall space and stack things neatly on top of each other.
