Our garages often make up a sizable chunk of our home space, yet this space is always the messiest. For some reason, the universal standards for neatness and organisation at home often don’t seem to apply to the garage.
Many once treasured and useful items are often lost in the cluttered abyss, and finding them again is undoubtedly a nightmarish experience. Such is the case for many homes across the country; however, it doesn’t have to be this way.
Here are some tips and tricks for organising your garage and making the most out of your space.
De-cluttering your garage starts with freeing up that all-important floor space. Shelving units made from hardy materials like metal are an upfront investment, yet worth it in order to keep your clutter out of the way.
These shelves keep your tools and miscellaneous objects off of the floor, giving the room a much more ‘open’ look.
Not only does this make it look tidier, but it frees up space to install that home gym you’ve been talking about, or finally fit the car in there. This will also finally reveal the floor underneath and see what damage has been lurking beneath all the clutter.
More often than not, it’s worth replacing that old worn away floor with a durable and sturdy resin to prevent any wear and tear in your newly organised space.
Divide the useful from the useless
We’ve all been in that situation where the lawn needs mowing or that shelf needs re-aligning, yet when it comes time to find the tools, sifting through heaps of clutter to find the right equipment turns a quick job into a stressful one. By sorting your equipment into relevant groups on your shelves, you can avoid these hindrances entirely and make your weekends easier.
Create drop zones
In order to avoid tripping over things, you may want to organise your garage into drop zones for the things you use most often. Having specific areas to drop off sporting equipment, bikes and other miscellaneous items can cut down the time spent rushing through the house. But as always, a good floor surface (like our own Garagetuff MMA resin) needs to be in place to withstand the wear-and-tear of daily use.
