4 Steps to Organizing Your Garage

Don’t be intimidated by your garage. You may have used it as a storage area for years, but don’t let that scare you off from getting organized! You have the ability to transform this space simply with a little organization, but where on earth will you start? Next time you walk into your garage and consider what your next step will be, keep these Orlando garage storage and organization tips in mind.

1. Zone the items in your garage into specific categories. Start organizing by separating kids toys, lawn tools, sporting equipment or gardening equipment in areas of the garage that make the most sense so that when it comes down to storing and accessing them, you’ll know exactly where everything is.

2. Analyze the amount of things you have, and how much you plan on storing, tossing, donating or selling. This helps you gauge how much storage you should be investing in while also getting rid of things you no longer want or use.

3. Once you’ve gotten rid of everything you’ve been wanting to, it’s time to plan your storage purchase. Consider purchasing wall track systems to hang lawn tools and sporting equipment. Garage cabinets are great for storing things like tools, cleaning supplies and kids toys. You can even utilize overhead storage systems for holiday and seasonal decorations.

4. Before your storage equipment arrives, go on a cleaning spree! You want your new storage system to look its best in your newly organized garage. Clean the floors, wipe down walls, or even apply a fresh coat of paint! Your garage is an extension of your home, so why not have it look its best?
