garage organizing

Some people are lucky to have a spacious garage with functional storage systems. Meanwhile, others find it difficult to organize their garage especially when it’s used for different purposes and too many things are stored inside. If you’re one of them, you’ll find the following garage organizing tips useful.

Garage Organizing Tips

Build Shelves

Having a good storage system is the core of very organized garage. This means having some kind of shelving unit. You can buy readymade shelves or you can make one yourself.

Make Custom Storage Solutions

When you start with garage organization, you have to do an inventory and consider how you would like to use the space. Do you have a past time or hobby that needs some storage space? If yes, then create a space that will serve that purpose.

Use Pegboard

A pegboard works well in a garage. You can reconfigure it whenever you want as you subtract or add items. You can reposition the containers and move the shelves to different pegs.

Keep Balls Off The Ground

If your family loves sports then you probably have a lot of balls on the floor of your garage. Why don’t you create a storage solution for all those excess balls? You can leave the container on the ground or you can hang the container on the wall. It’s up to you.

Make A Towel Holder

Home organizing means looking for or creating a functional space, regardless of its size. So, if your garage will double as a studio, craft room, potting room, or something similar, then you definitely need to have a towel holder. Why don’t you make one that comes with an industrial style?

Create A Mudroom

Do you have an attached garage? Do you need a mudroom? Then why don’t you create one close to the main entryway. This design may be minimal but you need to determine how your family uses the area. You also need to make sure that every family member has a place where they can store their things.

Make Custom Racks For Bikes

One of the few things that are extremely awkward to store are bikes. So, if you have one or a few at home, you should consider creating a bike custom rack. You’ll find designs where the bike rack also doubles as a bench. There are other styles available online too.

Beautify Your Garage

Who doesn’t want to have an organized and visually appealing garage? Look for great ideas online on how to store your basic garage things in such a way that they look visually pleasing.

Choose A Dedicated Space For Sports Storage

If you are not like other people who only need one tiny basket to store their sports equipment, then you should consider sparing an entire wall.

Create Tool Cart With Wheels

If your garage is also your workshop, you should create a tool cart that is big enough to keep the tools that you always use. However, it should also be narrow enough to easily store away.

Create Potting Area

If you love gardening but do not have a potting shed, you can turn your garage into one. If you’ve got other things stored in the garage, you can simply create a space where you can store your gardening tools and pots. Don’t forget to spare a space where you can work.

Turn Garage Into A Studio

The primary takeaway here is to have a garage that functions the way you want it to. If you don’t have a car but you’re a hobbyist, then you can transform your garage into a studio.
