When you walk out into your garage, are you happy with the way it looks? Many garages look like a storage unit and the homeowner has no rhyme or reason as to why it looks that way other than they never organized it. A luxurious garage is one that has a lot of space and is functional. To help you better organize your garage, we will go over some tips below.
Simple Organization Starts with You
If you are looking for some simple organization ideas, you should consider things such as:
1. Shelving – You can place shelving throughout your garage and utilize it to keep all of your belongings on. When you do use shelving, you can keep your items and boxes off of the floor, which frees up walking room.
2. Plastic Totes – Plastic totes are ideal for garage storage because they help to protect your items, they are stable, and they keep pests and dirt out. In addition, plastic totes look much better than cardboard boxes and, should something happen, such as a flood, your totes will not deteriorate like cardboard.
3. Pegboard – Pegboard is a great organizational tools because it allows you to hang items onto it instead of placing them in drawers or on the floor. The size of the pegboard you choose will depend on how much space you have and how many items you want to hang.
You can quickly and easily hang baskets to the board and store your smaller items such as nuts, tools, and bolts.
4. Cabinets – Lastly, you can utilize cabinets or a professional storage system in your garage. These offer you a ton of space, but they do take up quite a bit of wall space, but are worth it. These systems include counter space, upper and lower cabinets, and more.
When it comes to your garage organization, it is important that you make sure the space is functional and that you can still access all of your items when you need to. Labeling drawers and cabinets helps to point you in the right direction when you need an item.
A luxurious garage is one that is well lit, organized, and spacious. Don’t let your garage become a cluttered storage unit and start organizing it today!
