TIPS TO HELP YOU ORGANIZE YOUR GARAGE

CREATING STORAGE SPACE WHERE THERE IS NONE

Your garage is full of empty space you probably haven’t even begun to use yet. From the top of the walls to the shadowy corners, you can turn these areas into much-needed storage space. 

 

THINGS YOU MUST HAVE IN YOUR GARAGE

Even if your garage is full, there are a few things you simply must have if you don’t already. 

Fire Extinguisher

Without a doubt, your garage isn’t complete without a fire extinguisher. Storing explosives and flammables as most garages do, you need one just in case. 

A Vice

Even if you’re not the DIY type, you’ll probably find a bench vice comes in handy once in a while. 

A Multi-Compartment Toolbox

The easiest way to organize all your tools is to place them in a toolbox. If you have a lot of tools, you may need to purchase more than one toolbox.

TURN YOUR GARAGE INTO A MANCAVE/DEN OR MUDROOM

If you don’t want to use your garage as a garage, the space works well as a man cave/den or mudroom too. With just a few tweaks, your garage can pull double duty. 

Man Cave

Clear out an area of the garage and insulate as necessary to create a comfortable space. Consider adding floorboards to make the area feel warmer, and don’t forget the fridge!

Mudroom

Purchase plastic or wooden crates and stack them on top of each other to create cubby holes to store shoes and boots in. Install hooks on the wall to hang backpacks and the like and build a bench to create the perfect spot to put on shoes. 

If you have a garage, you know how valuable the space is. You also know how easy it becomes a catch-all for everything. Use the above tips to get your garage in order so it’s a much more user-friendly space.
