4 Tips For Organizing Your Garage
For many of us, the garage can easily become the default place for storage. It's big, dry, and a great place to keep items out of the way. Of course, your garage only has so much room. Here are a few ways to organize your garage more efficiently.
Buy Plastic Or Rubber Storage Containers:
If there are any loose items or partially-filled containers in your garage, you can save room by consolidating them. It may be tempting to keep your items in cardboard boxes, but they tend to eventually break down and attract insects. Rubber and plastic storage containers are best for keeping your belongings safe for long periods of time.
Hang Items From The Ceiling:
The ceiling is an often under-utilized storage option. All you need to do is purchase a few hooks from your local hardware store, install them in the ceiling, and then you have a great place to store ladders, bicycles, and other bulky objects.
Use The Walls:
Similarly, the walls are a great place to hang garden implements, power tools, and other equipment. With a pegboard or a few well-placed nails, you can have a wall full of your favorite tools, easily accessible and ready for use.
Another great storage option would be to install cabinetry along the walls of your garage. You'll find cabinets to be a safe and easy way to store oil, chemicals, or any equipment that might otherwise be exposed. Cabinets not only de-clutter, but can add value to your house.
