Is your garage a useful space that you love or is it more of a dumping ground? Garages can be great for storage and lots of other uses, but only if you organize them properly in a way that maximizes the space available to you. If you want to get your garage into shape, then here are some tips for turning it into an organizational dream come true.
Many people only think about the space they have on the floor for storage. So, they place cabinets, drawers, and shelving units that take up a lot of room. This encroaches on the rest of the garage and leaves it looking crowded. You should also think about vertical space, especially all that unused space on your walls. Installing hooks, rails, or shelves on the walls of your garage allows you to hang tools and other items without taking up lots of floor space.
If your ceiling is high enough, then you can also utilize this space for additional storage. Install a rack that securely hangs from the ceiling where you can place things that you don’t need to access regularly. This will allow you to make the most of all of the space in your garage.
Drawers and containers
When you store things in cabinets and shelving units, you don’t want everything to be jumbled together. This makes it much more difficult to find what you’re looking for. Instead, separate belongings and store them in small drawers, boxes, or baskets to keep everything efficiently organized. Your garage will look much tidier, too.
Consider an extension
If you have the space and the budget for it, then extending your garage will give you lots more space for storage and any activities you want to pursue in the garage. Make space to park your car or even for a second car, store more of your belongings, and create a workshop space for your hobbies. You can install a double garage door or two single garage doors for your extended garage, depending on which option suits you best.
An extension can provide you with more storage and space to move around either at home or at work, so get in touch with us whether you need a residential or commercial garage door to accommodate this extension. We hope you get your garage in ship-shape so that it becomes a place you enjoy being in.
