Garages are used for more than just a place to park your car. Many people use their garages to store everything from tools and sports equipment to holiday decorations and seasonal activities. However, a cluttered and disorganized garage can quickly become a source of frustration and stress. Here are some helpful tips to transform your garage into a clean and functional space.
- Declutter and Donate: The first step in organizing your garage is evaluating what needs to stay and what can go. Take everything out of your garage, sort through your items, and create piles of what to keep, what to dispose of, and what to donate. Dispose of broken or outdated items, and donate items in good condition that you no longer have use for. Once you’ve completed this necessary step, you’ll be left with a more manageable amount of belongings to organize.
- Plan Your Storage Space: Before you begin placing items in certain spots, consider how much space you have and what types of items you need to store. Then, decide on the best storage solutions for each item. Depending on what you are needing to store, you may need shelving, cabinets, hooks, overhead rack, or bins. By using vertical space, you can maximize storage capacity and keep items off the floor.
- Use Labels and Clear Containers: By using labels and clear containers, you will be able to locate and access your items more efficiently. You will be able to save time and frustration when searching for items.
By clearing out unused items and implementing the correct storage solutions, you gain square footage in your garage.
