Awesome ways to organise your garage

August 16, 2016

All of the extra goods in our households usually end up in the garage. Either we often use these items or they are never to be seen again until spring cleaning. Whatever you have in your garage you need to be sure it’s at least packed away in an orderly fashion. This way you’ll be able to get to anything with ease, without digging through piles of boxes.

Draft a floor plan

Before moving around goods or building extra storage space, take down your garage’s dimensions and note the size and location of windows, doors, as well as how much space your  used BMW takes up. Place items you use together in one spot, such as gardening tools and lawn chemicals. Store bulky equipment such as lawn mowers in corners where they won’t get bumped or knocked over by your vehicle. Frequently used items like bikes or racquets can be placed close to the garage door. All seasonal items or rarely used goods can be placed in harder-to-reach spots.

Install a rack and shelves

If your rakes, shovels, hoes and brooms are all over your garage, or stashed in the corner, then you may find it quite a hassle to get to the tool you need. You may be required to pull out all the extras you don’t need to get to the one you want. Have an organised system in place where each tool is hung individually. Getting the tool you want will be a breeze if they’re not on the floor. Be sure to leave space to hang more tools if need be.

Put up a cubby shelf

Your garage may be filled with a large collection of screws, nails, wood glues and any other nifty little tool you can find. If these are lying on your workbench, you may find they takes up a significant amount of valuable space. Build yourself a cubbyhole shelf or simply purchase one. The cubbyholes will allow you to store away all your miscellaneous items you often look for.

Hang ceiling racks

If all the shelves are taking up too much space , you could come to a halt in your operation. A great solution to solve this problem is to install wooden ceiling racks. You could also put storage tubs up there if needed. However, if your ceiling is low, it wouldn’t be ideal to hang ceiling racks.
