Besides your house, your garage is one of the most useful parts of the home. Although homeowners don’t give much attention to garages, these are important in storing your tools and other seasonal items in the home. Others might also store tons of other stuff , as well.
It is just a very convenient space in keeping items since you can stash anything there while keeping it out of your guests eyes. However, doing so, might lead to a very messy garage with only a little space left for your car.
If you’re one who’s struggling to keep your garage organized and clean, here are a few useful tips to maximize space while keeping everything in order:
For smaller garages in particular, wall storage solutions should be a close friend in the battle against disorganization. Although it might seem easier in the short-term to heap items on the floor, keeping them away from the ground actually comes with a few advantages such as: saves floor space for moving around, and parking your car; storing items at a height reduces the risk of them being damaged by water; items are far easier to organize on shelves than on the ground.
The type of wall storage you use will come hand in hand with the size of your garage, but the possibilities are endless. You might consider going green and using old crates. Another great way to maximize space is to install corner shelves. This can be a simple way to get the most out of those awkward corner spaces.
STORE YOUR SPRAY-PAINT IN A SHOE ORGANIZER.
Another great way to keep items/tools of the ground is to invest in some overhead storage. Most of us have things kicking around which we don’t use all that often: camping gear, skis and so forth. This is where overhead storage comes in. There are several ways you can suspend items from the ceiling of your garage. You might wish to install ceiling tracks, which can hold tubs and boxes, or simple rack. You might also think about investing in some spring-to-action claws for your ceiling. These claws automatically grip onto items pushed into their grasp, and can be a great way to tuck certain items, such as bikes, easily out of the way.
It is a simple trick, and it is one that is worth remembering: when it comes to organization, labels are your big friend. We all know the pain that comes with rummaging through countless boxes in search of one item. More often than not, we give up the search and purchase a new item, only for its predecessor to miraculously reappear in a random location with no explanation. Label your boxes, bins, cupboards, drawers and even shelves, to get the most out of your garage space.
FISHING ROD ORGANIZER
An easy idea for tangled fishing rods is a 3” diameter PVC pipe or a piece of wood and a foam swimming pool noodle for the garage storage system.
LONG-HANDLED TOOL RACK
The compact rack is strong. You can store shovels, rakes – any long-handled tools-conveniently up and out of the way. The unit can hold many items, giving you more flexibility and storage capacity than nails pounded in the wall.
STORE SCREWS AND NAILS IN OLD JARS
Very convenient and easy to access when needed.
THE RIGHT TOOLBOX
At the heart of every well-organized garage is the right toolbox. This one simple kit will keep all the tools you need in one place, in good condition, and also has the advantage of making them portable. depending on the size of your garage and what equipment you need,you might consider a lot different options. for larger spaces with a lot of tools to store, you might want to install a whole cabinet. For added utility, the cabinet could have wheels on its base, allowing you to pull it around when you need it, where you need it. For smaller spaces, choosing as compact a toolbox as possible is probably the best bet.
AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST, THINKING TO UPGRADE YOUR GARAGE FLOOR?
Let us help you with this extraordinary project (EPOXY GARAGE FLOOR)!
One of the toughest and most durable finishes that you can apply to a garage floor today is an epoxy coating. Not only does it protect your garage floor, it can instantly transform your boring or ugly concrete into a great looking floor of beauty and function. And since the garage is fast becoming more than just a place where you park the car, the benefits of garage floor epoxy have quickly made it one of the top choices for garage flooring today.
Epoxy will give your garage that showroom shine that says: “look at me!”. Depending on which application you choose, you can select from a variety of understated solid, to custom colors and blends of color flakes that match your style or even your favorite sports team.
So what makes an epoxy coating one of the best finishes for your garage floor? Besides looking nice, the hardened and thick application that you get from epoxy creates a coating that is very durable and resilient to impacts, chemicals, stains, and surface abrasion. Because epoxy is a topical sealer, it is also anti-dusting. Much of the dust in a garage is created from the powder that a concrete floor can shed or from the outside. Normal traffic on bare concrete can kick up this dusty powder that has a tendency of collecting on cars, tool benches, and storage items, as well as being tracked into the house.
