Why Organizing Your Garage is The Best Idea Ever?

Storage Corner | November 1, 2023 @ 12:00 AM

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.

If your counter is prone to clutter, choose an elevated cabinet above your workspace so you can easily view everything you need while keeping your items nearby. Or choose a cabinet with doors to hide items to maintain a neat and clean appearance.

Feel Less Stressed 🧘‍♀️

Organization has many benefits in a person’s life, including healthier sleep, reduced stress and increased productivity. When you come home to a messy garage space, it can cause additional sources of stress you may not even notice. Taking time to complete a few organization tasks will help reduce the chaos around and make you feel happier.

Here are five garage organization solutions to try ✅

1. Shelving for smaller items

2. Cabinets for collections of items

3. Bins for seasonal items

4. Hanging storage for larger items

5. Lofted storage for the largest items of all

Save Money and Space 💰☑️

When your space is unorganized, it’s easy to forget what you already have. If you need to find something fast, you’re more likely to buy a new item than try to track down something that isn’t immediately seen in order to save yourself some time. Repeat this cycle a few times, and you will soon find that you have eight dozen golf balls or 10+ screwdrivers – and no place to store them all.

By setting up a dedicated place for each item, you will save valuable space, and you will know where your new purchases go before you pull out your wallet.
