Spring is literally just around the corner.
(This year, the first day of spring is Monday, March 20).
Which means your thoughts may be turning to spring cleaning and organization.
And of course, you’ll be thinking about tidying up areas like:
As for the garage, that’s usually where stuff goes when you don’t know where to put it.
Over time, the garage gets full and cluttered. But since you may not spend much time in there, you probably don’t give it a second thought.
However, just like a neatly organized kitchen pantry, there are benefits to having an organized garage; even if you won’t enjoy them immediately.
Telltale signs your garage needs to be organized
If any of these things are happening to you on a regular basis each time you enter your garage, it’s time for a custom solution from Closets Plus:
- Getting to your garbage or recycling bins involves tricky navigation through piles of clutter
- Things (gardening tools, sporting equipment, etc.) easily fall or get knocked over
- Items are pressed up against the garage door to the point where they interfere with its sensors or operation
Does that sound like you and your garage?
Yes? Then you should book a FREE in-home design consultation to turn your garage from frustrating to functional.
Benefit 1: Room for your car
Oh right, your car.
After all, your garage was made to house your vehicle and protect it from the elements.
This is especially true if you happen to have a nice, high-end vehicle you want to keep indoors
Plus, your car will be out of sight from would-be thieves.
Benefit 2: More space for more items
As mentioned above, the garage is where things go when there’s nowhere else for them.
But if you want to keep these items, you’ll need a garage storage system to house them all.
With custom storage solutions built into your garage, you won’t simply be chucking things in the garage.
Instead, you’ll have more than enough room for things like:
- Sporting goods
- Work clothes
- Winter tires
And that added space lets you add more elements to your garage, like a chest freezer or sink basin.
Lastly, garage organization will protect your items from things like heat (in the summer), cold (in the winter) or accidentally coming into contact with objects they shouldn’t.
Benefit 3: Extra storage inside the house
If your garage is too cramped to place items (let alone your car), guess where that extra stuff ends up?
The garage tends to be the biggest single room of your home. The more of your belongings it holds, the more room you’ll have in other places around the house.
When you have a chance, walk around your house and take stock of everything that should be in the garage.
Then, just imagine how much extra space you’ll have (and how nice it’ll be), once it’s there.
Benefit 4: Save time
Once everything has its own place in your garage, it’ll be much easier to find what you need, when you need it.
- Digging through piles of tools looking for that one screwdriver
- Rummaging through boxes which may or may not be labeled correctly
- Moving a bunch of things just to reach other things behind them
- Having to clear a path every time you want to walk through your garage
Eventually, you won’t dread going into the garage.
And over the long haul, you’ll be amazed at how much time, effort and hassle you’ll save by having a neatly organized garage storage system.
Benefit 5: Better safety for your family
Let’s say you’re working outside and you have the garage door open.
What would your reaction be if your child or pet ran inside?
Would you worry that they would hurt themselves? Accidentally pull something down? Step on something that really shouldn’t be there?
Or would you relax knowing that all the dangerous stuff (like tools) is away and the items they want (like toys or bikes) are easily accessible?
If you’ll worry and instantly tell them to get out, then it’s time to reorganize your garage.
