When it comes to our garages most of us could agree that they are not as organized as we would like them to be. It seems that no matter what we do, the garage tends to always be in a mess.
Let’s end the cycle and use these tips and tricks to get your garage organized and keep it that way! We’ve partnered with our friends at Bauscher Construction to provide 6 key ways to get started.
Just like in the kitchen, cabinetry is a great way to keep things organized and hidden away. There are lots of options for garage cabinetry from how big to how many drawers and how many doors. It’s best to look through your garage inventory and create a list of the type of storage you will need. This will make deciding on the type of cabinetry much easier.
Though there are options such as pegboards and wall hooks to organize your garage things off the floor, however, these can look cluttered and leave unsightly holes in your grange walls. Slatwall organizing systems are a great way to get things off the floor and organized onto your garage wall without the need for drilling holes and unattractive pegboard. Slatwalls also look great and come in a variety of colors!
No room on the floor or walls for all of your things? Consider ceiling storage for the items you need to get to less often. With labeled bins and a well thought out game plan, overhead storage is a great way to keep your garage from feeling cluttered.
Have some special items that need their own space? Things like sports gear, bikes, tools, and cleaning supplies can sometimes feel like they never have a place to go.
Here are just a few examples of specialty storage solutions for those specific hobbies.
• Sports Gear Storage
• Bike Rack Storage for 3 Bikes
• Mop and Brooms Holder
• Deluxe Tool Tower
It’s not just for trendy looking pantries! Labeling can not only look great in a garage, it will keep everything in its place and ensure everything gets put back in its place. Whether just the bins are labeled or the space on the rack for the rake is labeled, it can really take your garage organization skills to the next level.
Nothing says messy and unorganized like a dimly lit space. Install more overhead lighting to brighten up the garage. It will make finding things easier, navigating the space safer, and when your garage is nicely organized like yours will be it will make it easier to show off to friends and family if it’s well lit!
The best way to get your garage organized is to know what is in your garage and plan out specific storage for those items. Some things are better organized one way and some are better organized another. Figuring that out will make getting and keeping your garage organized a breeze!
