When you're getting ready to move things into your new garage cabinets, you want to be sure that everything's clean first. Getting everything organized in an overstuffed garage may at first seem like an impossible task, but a few simple tricks can get things back in shape in no time.
Tip one: Assess your garage
Many people don't know exactly what is in their garage. As people accumulate miscellaneous household supplies, shoving everything into the garage quickly becomes a fall-back solution. If this describes your situation, you may need to completely reorganize your space. Start by making groups of tools, books, gardening supplies and similar items. Further, have a pack for things you want to give away and things you want to throw away.
Tip two: Maybe keep everything out of your garage
Once you've removed everything from your garage, take a good, hard look at the space. There's a decent chance that you will have a room that's perfect for one of your hobbies. Don't take for granted the idea that you could start using all of this new space. New garage cabinets can work in a craft room, a musician's studio or a garage, depending on your individual needs.
Tip three: Keep things together
You want to keep your alike items in the same general area when you make your new garage. This means putting the boots all in one location, the sports equipment in another, and so on. Keeping things separated, even if they're next to each other on different bins, will make it easier for you to decide where to put things as your garage's new organizational system sees real-world use.
Tip four: Use garage cabinets
Exquisitely designed cabinets designed for garage storage make it easy to organize house hold goods.They also eliminate the appearance of clutter within a garage, allowing it to more easily be used for things besides simply storing things.
Tip five: When in doubt, go vertical
If you still can't fit everything you need inside your garage after following these tips, try installing a pegboard. Pegboards can let you keep a variety of items on a vertical wall, allowing you to keep the majority of your storage space without sacrificing storage capabilities. This is especially useful for storing things that might otherwise be bulky in a cabinet, like old hoses.
