Free Up Space and Protect Your Garage Door from Damage
In a previous post, we went over some easy steps to clean your garage door. However, besides keeping your door in pristine condition, it is important to have a well-organized garage. That way, you will not only have more space but will reduce the risk of damaging your garage door. Let’s take a look at smart ways of decluttering your garage and how to organize it.
Steps to Declutter Your Garage
The idea is to get everything up and off of the floor. Use as much vertical and ceiling space as possible.
Take Everything Out
For starters, take everything out from the garage. Then, take a good look at the space available to have a better idea of what you are working with.
For example, lawn and garden equipment, tools, toys, sports gear, seasonal items, and car stuff.
To Keep or Not to Keep?
Decide what to keep, what to donate, what to recycle, and what to toss away.
Organize the garage into zones. Typical zones include Car Parking Zone, Work Area Zone, and Storage Zone.
Now that you have a clear idea of the items you would like to keep and the designated zones for each category, it is time to put everything back into the garage.
Wall Storage: Slat walls are great to organize large items easier and clear floor space.
Hooks and Pegs: Hooks and plastic chains are excellent for awkward, bulky objects. Use pegboards to store and organize tools.
Filling Cabinets: Use them for items that may need to be stored securely, or to hold things you don’t want readily seen.
Overhead Storage: Designate this space for items that are not used often and can’t easily be stored on the walls.
Don’t let your garage become a dumping ground for your stuff. Follow the above tips to turn it into the spotless area you love.
