Tips for Improving the Storage in Your Garage

One of the most common ways that garages are used is for additional storage. While a majority of homeowners are taking advantage of this space and using to to store their winter clothes or sports equipment, these spaces tend to get cluttered, messy, and pretty overwhelming. When your garage starts to give you feelings of anxiety, something needs to change.  Garage Interiors knows just how beneficial and valuable this space can be when it’s done right. Given that there are so many people that struggle to make the most of this space, we wanted to make it quick and easy to get the components that can take your garage to the next level. From high-quality storage solutions to gorgeous floor treatments, we have the things that you need to make your garage look incredible.  In today’s blog, our team is going to focus primarily on storage and how you can improve the ways that you’re storing items in your garage. Feel free to browse the garage storage solutions that we have and see if there are any that could immediately make your storage situation a bit more efficient.

Add Storage Solutions 

Okay, one of the first things that you can do to optimize the space within your garage is to invest in high-quality storage solutions. There are countless options available that allow you to get organized with your storage and can immediately make your garage look infinitely cleaner. The best storage solution will vary on the size of your garage and what it is that you’re storing in this space. For some, it may be a wall of cabinets while others would benefit more from a couple of shelves and some wall hooks.  Whatever solution you choose for your garage, having a structure to store items will help remove clutter and make it easier to utilize this space. 

Declutter

One of the reasons that garages tend to look so cluttered is because they are! With the garage being viewed as a space used solely for providing coverage to our vehicles and giving us a bit more storage, it’s easy to let our junk get out of hand. Rather than letting this happen, look at your garage as an extension to your home. Clutter creates stress and is something that most of us try to avoid within our homes. Why not do the same in your garage?  If you really want to improve the appearance and storage ability of your garage, go through and get rid of clutter. This will help lessen the number of things that are taking up space in your garage and make it look significantly more organized.

Get Organized

We’ve mentioned organization a couple of times in this blog, and while it may seem redundant, it definitely makes a difference regarding your ability to optimize storage options in your garage. As we just finished saying, it’s incredibly easy to let clutter build up in your garage and, when this happens, it becomes difficult to find the things that you’re looking for or maneuver around the garage easily. The way to tackle both of these issues is by getting organized. As you’re going through the clutter that’s built up in your garage, start creating piles and figuring out how you’d like to organize the various things that you have stored in your garage. If, for example, you have decorations for various holidays within your garage, organize them according to holiday and put them all in the same part of your garage. Now, when you need to go and pick out a tub full of holiday decorations, you know exactly where to find them.  Aside from making it easier to find things, being organized with the items that you’re storing can help protect valuable or fragile items while they’re being stored in your garage. For example, if you have family pictures or precious heirlooms stashed away in your garage, the last thing that you want is for them to get damaged. Rather than leaving them in a box on the floor where water could get to them or next to the trash where they could accidentally be thrown out, put them in a container where they are protected, label them, and store them up on a shelf.  Ultimately, being organized with your garage storage can provide you with a higher quality of storage ability, make it easier to get around your garage, and make the most of the available space. All it takes is a strategy!
