5 Quick and Cheap Ways to Organize Your Garage
A house will always look immaculate if it is regularly cleaned and organized. It is important that every area and room is taken into consideration — even the garage.
Your garage may be your home’s clutter storage but it does not have to stay that way. There are many ways to keep it organized and tidy so you can easily find your things and store new items.
1. Create an Illusion of Space
There are so many interior designers that swear by what a bright room can do. A bright light helps the room breathe and gives it a more spacious feel. To achieve this, paint the garage walls white for an instant expand on space. Add a bright light source that emits daylight to create an illusion of broadness.
2. Breathe New Life to Old Shelves
They say one man’s trash is another’s treasure. There may be some yard sales in the neighborhood to look for shelves or cabinets that can be used as storage. The shelves do not necessarily need to match. Just paint them in a matching color to give a modern, chic feel to your garage. Remember to check for any damage or signs of termites. Paint them according to the color of your theme and place them on the walls. These will be great when you put the next tip into play.
3. Break Out the Boxes
Put everything neatly into place by their category. Put kids’ toys, dad’s tools, and other stuff together in individual boxes. It will also help if you can paint the boxes with a color that complements the shelves. That way, you can hit two birds with one stone: organized and aesthetically pleasing.
4. Label Everything
Aside from color coding the boxes, label your boxes to easily spot what you put in each box. Make sure labels are clear and readable.
5. Create a Monthly Cleaning Habit
Organizing is a small habit that reaps great benefits. Mark your calendar for a regular clean-up. It can be as often as once a week or it can be a monthly chore, depending on your schedule. The goal is to create a routine schedule to keep your garage tidy and organized.
Aside from its main purpose, the garage also serves as an extra storage area for your things. Try these tips so you don’t end up with a big mess and to create more room for new stuff.
