Whether it is your room or garage, no one likes a cluttered place. Even the smallest corner where things are just thrown about randomly can make the house look unseemly. No one wants that to happen, and therefore, all the needless things land in the garage.
Well, the act is pretty justified because it makes cleaning easy, and that stuff stacks up and you ultimately end up with a huge pile. And when you require something from that pile, it’s like finding a needle in a haystack.
It’s understandable, organizing a garage can be a hassle, but the effort required is one-time. Once you are done with it, it will stay that way unless you decide not to put things in their assigned places and intentionally go for chaos.
Here are some quick tips can help you de-clutter your garage with ease.
First, you need to plan everything. Measure the space before and after parking your car. Plan where to start from, mark the spaces for specific things to place or for keeping particular things. Draw a rough sketch on a paper, so that you can work accordingly.
Start sorting things, like sports gear, tools, recycling stuff and others too. Get rid of the stuff you think are useless or you can survive without them. Then, according to their kind and number of things, decide how you would organize them and what storage options can be used.
Sorting things according to type is a good strategy but in can turn complex when it comes to their size; for example a bicycle and helmet both are sports gear but you cannot place a bicycle on a shelf. So, plan a separate section for large items as they take too much space.
You can choose from various storage options according to the size of your garage. Stock cabinets or portable cabinets, with wheels can be a good choice. Other than that you can opt for shelves, basket racks, bags etc. You will find more than enough variety to fulfill your needs.
We often ignore unused spaces and end up complaining about how unorganized the place looks. You might not even know about so many spaces that you have not used, like walls, ceiling and corners of your garage. Make sure to cover maximum capacity.
Build our Own Storage Options
You do not always have to look for a storage option, instead; you can make them at home. Making your own storage unit can save you a lot of money. You can use different inexpensive household stuff to make an impressive storage.
For example, you can use pieces of PVC pipes to make a stand for long handed tools, such as brooms and wipers.
Using Walls and Ceilings
Walls and ceiling can also be used for storing your stuff. It is pretty much obvious how you can use walls, install shelves and racks on the walls, which can be done with ease. Try making the shelves and racks yourself, it cuts out on the expense.
The ceiling can be converted into a storage platform. Wondering how? It is pretty easy, make a sliding storage system, then use some plastic bins to store stuff. But do not store heavy materials, as it breaks due to overweight.
It seems easy to organize your garage, right? Well then, get started!
