For many homeowners in the UK, keeping their garage tidy and organised is at the bottom of their priority list – but this certainly should not be the case. A well-functioning home starts from the garage, and to help you get started, we have come up with a few simple steps that will contribute to a complete transformation in your garage.
Clear the clutter
We highly recommend that you start with a complete clear-out of your garage. Pull out everything from your drawers, cupboards, shelving and whatever other storage systems you have, and place it all in the centre of the room. Then, spend some time going through every item and decide whether you want to keep it, sell it, or give it to charity. You need to be ruthless with your clear-out, if you haven’t used in a year, it’s time to clear.
Group items together
To make locating items a whole lot easier, we recommend you grouping similar items together. Not only will it save you time traipsing through boxes upon boxes when you’re in a rush, but it also makes your garage look that whole much more organised and neater.
Stack tools and other items
Luckily for you, there are plenty of shelving options to choose from for your garage. You can invest in heavy-duty shelving units, lightweight shelving that can be installed on your wall or even your own put-together shelving units. They are a great way of storing lightweight or heavy items, and you can also move them from one garage to another if you get around to moving.
A great way to maximise your storage is to make the most of the high spaces, using high racks for items which aren’t often used.
