Tackle That Garage This Fall

Posted on September 12, 2011

Anything that doesn’t have a dedicated space inside the house usually ends up in one place – the garage. From bikes and sporting equipment to old clothes and dusty boxes, it’s easy to toss everything in the garage and forget about it. Adding certain design elements to a garage helps to make it a more useful space for everyone at home. And honestly, nothing will make you feel better than tackling this cluttered space just before the holiday season arrives. Here are some helpful tips from the experts at Houzz:

  1. Don’t underestimate vertical wall space. If you park your car in the garage, you’ll need to free up as much space aspossible. Tall bins and shelves are the perfect solutions for this.
  2. If you don’t like the look of open shelving, then drawer solutions are also an option. With open shelving, it’s easy for them to become another random place to stash everything. But with drawers, everything will be neatly concealed.
  3. For the best results, start with a completely empty garage. Looking at a blank canvas will make it so much easier to see what you’re working with, what fits where, and what you want the garage to look like in the end.
  4. Ask yourself questions about what to keep and what to toss. Do you love it? Need it? When was the last time you used it? Be honest and get rid of everything you don’t need, want or use regularly.
