Is your garage a nightmare that you try to avoid as much as possible? If so, then it’s time to get started on garage organization. For homeowners who feel overwhelmed with tackling this overwhelming problem, follow these tips to get your garage organized.
Sort All Items
If your garage is overrun with clutter and old boxes, set aside time for a deep cleaning session. Many homeowners will find that there are plenty of items to sell or donate, and this will often take a huge chunk out of the organization that’s still left to handle.
Create a Plan
If you find it frustrating and difficult to work with drawing up plans, use this opportunity to meet with a professional garage organization service. A seasoned professional will be able to help you create a vision and a plan for your soon-to-be perfectly organized garage to maximize your space.
Whether you choose to work with a professional or tackle garage organization yourself, it’s essential to compare pricing to find items that will serve you well for a great price. If you have your heart set on heavy-duty transparent storage bins or sleek looking steel shelving, the most important thing to consider is the price.
Stock Up On Shelving
After you’ve priced out your storage endeavors, it’s time to get to work and purchase plenty of shelving. For nearly every garage, shelving is vital in achieving maximum space and ease of use. If you enjoy low maintenance and attractive fixtures, chrome shelving could be the ideal choice. For heavy items that you won’t need to reach very often, steel shelving is usually a top choice.
Once you’ve purchased all necessary items, it’s important to create heavy-duty laminated labels to adhere to the outside of boxes and bins for easy garage organization. Make sure to print the labels in an easily legible and large font. If you’re working with a team of garage service professionals, they’ll usually offer to pack the bins for you and stick the labels on so you can enjoy your time on other projects or quality time with family.
