Most homeowners think of their garage in one of 2 ways: As a place to keep the cars or somewhere to store all the junk that you don’t know what to do with.
It’s just been this way for many years for many, but today, with people like Marie Kondo and other mindfulness practices gaining ground, there’s a push to clear out our physical spaces and make room for more joy in our lives.
Getting rid of all of our things isn’t always that easy. Sometimes the boxes in the garage contain sentimental items like your child’s art projects. They’ve since gone off to college and you want to keep them to share with your grandchildren. Or, perhaps holiday decorations are kept here.
Either way, when it comes time to organizing and tidying up the area so it can be used for better things and walked through without fear of everything coming tumbling down, we’ve got some tips for you.
Here are some garage organization tips you probably haven’t thought of.
Consider Display and Layout
Thanks to the Internet, there are a plethora of research and inspiration photos to use for coming up with an idea for your garage. Clearing the clutter for goodwill requires an idea of how you’d like to use the space and what it will look like. When you’re motivated by the functionality of use of the space it will be easier to get out there and get organized.
Nothing makes a room look smaller and messier than clutter all over the floor. Even if you’ve been stacking boxes around the outer perimeter of the garage floors, chances are those boxes haven’t been touched for a while. You’re not just losing valuable walking space, moisture from the ground could also be damaging items inside the box. The solution? Hang everything. Invest in shelving, get bike hooks and storage racks. Take everything and hang it up and away from the floor for an instant transformation.
Get a Portable Garage
If you’ve done all of the above and still have stuff you don’t know what to do with but aren’t ready to toss, it’s time to consider a portable garage. This is a cost-efficient option that allows you to add more storage space on your property that isn’t permanent. Just move it or take it down when it’s no longer needed.
