organized garageIt happens to every garage. Over the summer months, things get tossed into the garage because of regular outdoor play. Soccer balls and bikes end up scattered on the garage floor, hula-hoops mysteriously appear where they never existed before, and remnants from camping trips, pool days and sporting events clutter every amount of floor space possible. A cluttered garage, for many husbands and dads alike, makes usual workspaces and man caves almost unbearable! Wouldn’t it be nice to have a garage with designated spots for all of the items that you own, keeping them nicely tucked away? An organized garage makes life easier for everyone, not just Dad.

With designated storage space in the garage, the entire family will realize it’s full potential. Here are some basic design ideas that we can help turn from concept to reality. Whether your garage space is small or oversized, there are organizational tips that will utilize the room’s square footage effectively, tucking away the extras with plenty of room for your vehicles.

Organize your belongings. One tip we recommend is to first determine which of the larger items need storage. Yard equipment, bicycles, golf clubs and sleds are things that can take up a lot of space in the garage. Aesthetically, enclosing items behind custom closets works wonders, but for some items (like bikes) it may not make as much sense if the bikes are used daily. We can help you decide if a hanging rack from the ceiling will work best to store larger items, especially when the items aren’t being used on a regular basis. Thinking about what belongings you have, how often they are being used, and your own basic style preferences will determine how you want your garage organized.

Wall space is king! Want an organized garage? Use that wall space to its full potential. We specialize in cabinetry that ties in beautifully with the rest of the home. Many of our clients use their garage for additional entertaining space, setting up large tables for Thanksgiving dinners or bringing out the TV for the big game.

If the man of the house decides to bring his buddies over to catch up and play poker one evening, it’s a lot easier to tidy up the space with enclosed cabinets. Even though garages can be considered “man caves”, an organized garage can be a huge asset to the entire family for a number of events. It’s much easier to prepare for having people over when any clutter can be quickly put back in its place, using an organized wall system.

A taste of home. What makes a garage look more like a part of the home? By integrating your personalized style and color! When you pull into your garage at the end of the day, wouldn’t you like to see a room that not only offers style components you love, but an organized, mess-free space too? If you love a black and white checkered floor, bring that look into your garage. Do you love grey cabinetry? Pull that color into your garage as well. The man of the house may not be as interested in the color scheme, but he will appreciate the organized, labeled shelving, a clean workspace, and organized tools. By having a place to put everything, it will be a more enjoyable and usable space. When you’re organized in the garage, it’s easier to find things you are looking for so you can get the job done and move on to having fun!
