Make It Work: Creating A Storage Haven in Your Garage

If your family garage is more of a dumping ground, where old Christmas decorations go to get lost; you are not alone. The hustle and bustle of family life often leads to a particular space in the home being used to leave what you just don’t want to look at. It’s then so easy for those items and clutter to pile up, so much so that many can’t fit their car in their garage anymore. However, if you take a step back to look at the space; behind all those months and years of clutter, is quite a sizable space that’s being underutilized and not appreciated at all.

Therefore, it could be time to think about how that space could be better used. It’s unlikely you’re going to be paying for the right insulation, plastering, and everything else that would go into making it a new living space. So, maybe it’s time to really get stuck into clearing out and making the most of all that potential in your garage! The following are some ideas to help you get started on project garage so that you can enjoy an organized storage space that works for the whole family.

Know What’s Gotta Go!

This is no time for sentimentality; you might have years of unwanted junk piled up in there, so it’s time to be a little ruthless with what you’re getting rid of. It’s worth looking into a junk removal company to help speed things along, so get online and visit their site to arrange help with the more difficult task of disposal. Before you know it, you’ll be enjoying all the new space you’re creating, and that clear-out will become a breeze.

Give It a Clean

Okay, so the junk and unwanted items are out of the way; it’s time to get cleaning those surfaces, sweep the floors, and get rid of as much dust and grime as possible. You’ll be amazed at the difference a couple of hours of cleaning can make! And, it’s a team effort; get the whole family to roll up their sleeves and help out.

Freshen The Space

Once that space is opened up and cleaned; it’s time to address any broken shelving or add somewhere needed. It might be worth giving the whole room, a fresh coat of paint in a light, fresh color. This will elevate the garage even more, and ensure you’ve got added motivation to keep it organized and tidy. You can get creative, and use different colors for different areas, for example, storage areas could be painted in grey, while the place you use to recycle or use your tools could be white, green, or blue; the options are endless!

Ensure It All Has a Home

Now you can concentrate on deciding what’s going to live in there, and making sure that everything has its place. Invest in whatever crates and boxes you need so that you can store, tidy, and grab items with ease. Clear labels for separate areas or containers are also a great way to ensure that the space remains functional and easy to utilize. Welcome to your new storage haven, good job!
