Declutter and maximize the space

Decluttering is a popular thing to do inside your home, but can be just as beneficial to your garage too. You probably won’t need to do this if you’ve just moved in. Giving yourself an hour or two on the weekends to declutter can make a significant difference. You need to go through all of the items that are stored inside and determine whether they still have a purpose. Get rid of anything that is broken or past it’s best. Once completed this should open up the space and make it easier to move around. While decluttering also make sure the hardware in your garage is in full working order. If you find that the door or lights are not working, you may need to replace or fix them. This too may give you more additional space.

Create zones

If you use your garage to store multiple items, you can make it far more organized by establishing zones. Sort the items in your garage into set piles such as kids toys, gardening tools and sporting equipment. Place these items in color coded or labelled boxes. Now divide up the space in your garage into zones and store your newly organized items in the same place. So all your gardening tools will be located in zone one, kids toys in zone two and so on. This will make it far easier to locate items when you need them and makes it simpler to maintain a tidy garage space.

With these suggestions, you shouldn’t find it too difficult to create an organized garage you can be proud of. So don’t let it continue to be a dumping ground for your family’s things.
