Gone are the days when the garage was only used to store tools or cars. This essential space is suitable for everyone in the family and can be used for many different tasks, including home improvement projects, bicycle and car repairs, hobbies, gardening preparations, recycling centers, and more. Regardless of your storage needs, a good organization can help you make the most of your space. It's easy to make the garage a practical and attractive part of your home. Various cabinet configuration options with trendy colors and stylish hardware allow you to create a look that is in harmony with the interior of your home, or you can choose a cabinet with a mixture of laminate and steel to upgrade the appearance. Tap into the full potential of your garage and turn that underused space into a place so organized you’ll be proud to leave your garage doors open. Keep Expensive Items Protected 💎 For such a messy space, the garage certainly holds some expensive things. Bicycles are not cheap, nor are power tools or lawn and gardening equipment. Then comes the most expensive one: your vehicle. With a well-organized garage, expensive things will stay protected. Your car’s paint won’t get chipped from a bicycle falling against it, or from your kids riding their scooter, electric toy car or tricycle into it. How do you protect your car from bicycles, rakes, shovels, and other tall objects that can tip over? Use hooks to lean them against the wall and away from the floor. When belongings fall onto the floor or are scattered in the garage, they’re more likely to be lost or damaged (due to flooding or leaks, getting stepped on or run over). During the process of tidying up your garage, you’ll get rid of toys your kids have grown out of, and you’ll find a safe space for what they still use.

What's the Best Way to Store Your Winter Clothes? Summertime is finally here, which means it’s time to put away all your heavy winter clothes. However, unless you have a very spacious closet, it may be difficult to rotate your wardrobe and store out-of-season clothes. Proper storage of winter clothes is essential to a tidy, well-organized space; it ensures that your cold-weather gear is ready to keep you warm when you need it. Prepare Clothes for Storage 🧺 The very first step when you go to put your winter clothes in storage is selecting what you want to keep. There’s no sense putting time and energy into preparing items for storage and then consuming valuable space when you won’t wear the items next winter season (just like you didn’t this season). Donate what didn’t wear while your preferences are fresh in your memory. Next, make sure you’re putting away your winter clothing in its very best condition. Storing clothing with any odors, or stains (even if they aren’t noticeable) will only set them in further, maybe permanently. When you’re done preparing your winter clothes, the only things that will get put away for next winter are the items you use and love, and each of them will be clean and as close to new-looking as possible. Containers Work Best! ✅ While it’s tempting to use cardboard boxes to store winter clothes, they aren’t the best solution. Cardboard is both acidic and susceptible to water damage — it certainly isn’t the best solution for storing your winter clothes in. Instead, opt for clear plastic containers. Storing winter clothes inside sealed plastic bins will prevent water damage and other mishaps. Shoes and boots are also best stored in plastic containers. Make sure they are clean and dry and don’t try to stuff too many into one bin. Use tissue paper or shoe shapers to help your shoes keep their shape. Can Winter Clothes be Stored in a Garage or Attic?💡 Short answer: probably not. You want to store your winter clothing in ...
