Hello World! Welcome Friends! When it comes to your garage space, it can often become cluttered with gardening tools, car equipment and other items that have been dumped in there to keep out of the way. After a while, this can cause your garage to become unusable and results in a waste of valuable space. It’s important to give your garage a good clean out and introduce some practical storage solutions to ensure you can make the most of the space you have!
Start by Emptying
It’s almost impossible to tidy a room when it is full of clutter, so start by emptying your garage and start with a blank canvas. While you empty your garage, try to sort through the items you are moving and figure out what you need and what can be thrown away or recycled. It’s also really beneficial to put your things into different piles, sorting them into categories such as Garden, Car etc. Once your garage is completely empty, you can focus on introducing some key storage features and other practical appliances that may come in handy.
Your garage is the perfect space to add some additional features that can really help with day to day tasks. Introducing features such as a sink, washing machine and dryer will enable you to create a laundry area that you can use, freeing up some valuable kitchen space! You can also look at introducing a sink unit to help with all kinds of tasks such as washing the car, doing hand washing and so on. These useful features will also add a considerable amount of value to your property, as a practical garage comes with many benefits.
Floor to Ceiling Storage
Utilizing the space, you have is really important and when it comes to the garage you can really make the most of every bit of space you have. Introducing storage features that enable you to store items on the walls and ceiling are ideal, especially if you intend to store your car in the garage from time to time. There are different storage features that you can introduce that are specific to certain items, for example, you can install some storage fittings to the ceiling to store items such as your bikes. You can then look at shelving fixtures to your walls that can be used to store boxes, tools and other items that you want to store away neatly. For items such as tools, introducing some magnetic tabs to the wall, along with some useful hooks will provide you with plenty of space to keep them organized and tidy.
If you’re wanting to store your gardening tools inside your garage instead of a shed or greenhouse, then keeping a selection of boxes and shelving units dedicated to your tools and equipment will be really beneficial. Gardening tools can come in a variety of shapes and sizes, from your trusty potting bench and step ladder, to the small secateurs and clippers. Keeping these items together in one place will make your gardening much easier to carry out, as well as keeping them in good condition and preventing them from breaking.
Label Important Items
It’s very easy to get confused when you store items in boxes, especially when you have lots of different boxes in a shelving unit. Labelling your boxes will help to keep your garage organized and tidy, as well as enabling it to look neat. Your labels will make it much easier to work out what belongs where, which will prevent items from being misplaced or lost.
