Are you one of the many people who catch spring fever and decide that it’s time to get organized? If you’re resolved to get organized but don’t know where to start when it comes to organizing your garage, Closet & Storage Concepts can help! Read on for three easy areas to focus on to clear clutter and get organized.
Whether you consider yourself a premier DIYer who’s the master of weekend projects or you’re more of a tinkerer, having a workbench is a key to a job well done. It will give you a dedicated workspace where you can spread out your materials, plans, and other components for your latest project. Workbenches can also be flexible and be built with a small profile so you can still park your car inside.
Storing your tools properly in your garage serves two important purposes. First, you’ll be able to locate what you need more quickly, saving yourself time and frustration. You might even save money because you won’t purchase identical tools to replace ones you “lose”.
The second reason for devoting space in your garage for tool storage is that your tools will last longer. Keeping them up off the floor and visible also makes it easier for you to notice when they need to be cleaned or replaced.
Pegboard storage is a common solution that is easy to implement above your workbench. Doing so puts hand tools that you use most often within easy reach.
Another option is to use slat wall tool storage. It provides flexibility like pegboard storage but looks more professional. They are also more durable and are perfect for heavier or awkwardly-shaped items. A small slatted wall section can be outfitted to hold small hand tools, larger garden shears, or even a bike or sporting goods.
Storing Other Items
If you’re like many other homeowners, your garage isn’t used to simply house tools, lawn equipment, and your vehicles. It’s also a catch-all for bulky items and outdoor equipment.
Sports equipment and bikes are a prime example. Sports racks keep items such as bikes up off the floor while shelves, cabinets, and baskets make excellent places to store bats, balls, rackets, toys, and other items that active families need easy access to.
