Often a veritable dumping ground for the home, garages are usually cluttered and unorganized as everything that doesn’t have a permanent place in the house finds its way here. With a little bit of work and planning, this home space can be transformed into something much more than an eyesore.
Hold a Garage Sale
The fact of the matter is, garages get cluttered with things that we no longer need but feel the need to hang on to. Start to clear out the mess by holding a garage sale. Once that’s done, take everything that is left over and donate it to charity. This will give you less to work with as you begin to transform your space.
As the first step to achieving some sense of order, sort everything in the garage. Put decorations on one side and tools on the other. This will give you more room to work with a sense of the amount of storage you will need to invest in to provide everything a dedicated home
Invest in Storage
Whether they need to be hung from the wall or simply pushed into a side corner, shelves and cabinets are the quickest and easiest way to begin storing things in an organized and logical manner. Places like Quantum Storage have numerous solutions that fit every type and every size garage.
Garages don’t have to be sterile environments. Spend some time to paint a checkerboard pattern on the wall or hang some decorative art to liven the place up. Giving it a theme will make it much more fun to clean up and give it a sense of purpose.
