What we consider a 5-star garage is one that is functional both inside and out! Aside from your cars, your garage must also serve as storage space for your tools, bikes, sports gear, yard equipment, garden tools and more! Because of this, the garage can quickly become disorganized and cluttered.
If you’re ready to bring some order to the chaos, here are some tips to help you keep your space tidy and functional through the seasons.
Determine what is in your garage
We know just how tedious this task can be, but it is important to know just what you’re using the space for. Go through the items in your garage and group them into categories. For example, you might notice these categories of items:
- Garden tools
- Workshop and tools
- Yard equipment such as lawn mowers and snow blowers
- Seasonal items such as your Christmas tree and decorations
- Garbage and recycling bins
- Bikes and sports gear
- Car accessories
Divide up your space and start planning!
Next, draw up a plan of how you want your garage to be organized. Designate space for each category and take account of what you will need easy access to (things you will need year-round vs your seasonal items). You will also need to leave floor space for your bigger items such as your lawn mower, snow blower, furniture, freezers, etc. Lastly, be sure to leave room to accommodate your future storage needs.
