If you have been thinking about organizing your garage, do not delay one more moment. Organizing the garage can be a bit of a pain but once you get it done, you'll feel a sense of relief and you'll have a beautiful looking garage where you can find everything with ease. Let's take a look at a few secrets that will help you get the job done efficiently and thoroughly.
Tip #1: Take Care of Those “Dump and Forget” Spaces First
Just about every garage has one or more “dump and forget” areas that homeowners put their excess items into. We are all guilty of dropping things off in these spaces and trying to forget about just how messy that part of the garage has become. Organizing the garage will be much easier if you tend to this space first. Go through all those extraneous items and figure out what you are likely to use in the future, what can be scrapped and what can be donated. Do yourself and your family an enormous favor by eliminating as much as possible. Doing so will clear out the unnecessary items, make it easier to find what you need and also boost the garage's aesthetics. Once you get this dreaded space out of the way, the rest of the garage will be quite easy to organize in comparison.
Tip #2: Create Boundaries While Organizing Your Garage
Organizing your garage means establishing specific places for specific items. These “zones” will help you keep the garage organized across posterity as long as you inform everyone in the house about which items belong in certain spaces. Ideally, the center of the garage will be reserved for your vehicle(s). However, you should take care to leave some additional space so you can reach upward and outward with cargo, snow brushes etc. Don't forget to leave enough space on the sides so you and your passengers can open the car doors with ease.
Tip #3: A Workbench can do More Than Serve as a Storage Space
When deciding on zones for your garage, you should leave a spot to work on home projects. You will need enough room for your work bench and possibly a pegboard. Leave enough space for not only the bench but also yourself so you have enough elbow room to build, repair and store sundries.
Organizing Your Garage can Result in Excessive Debris
Once you have finished organizing your garage, you will likely find that you have more items than you originally anticipated. Do not attempt to store those excess tools and yard supplies in your garage's newly designated zones. Those items should not be stored in the basement either. You will only be creating more problems for yourself down the road if you try to keep absolutely everything.
