You are not alone if you have ever looked around to make out who is outside prior to opening the garage door. This part of the house gathers everything from garden supplies and tools to sports equipment and toys – a few of which most likely have not been used in years. Luckily, custom garage storage solutions by Garage Tailors change everything. When you are done systematizing, you might even have an adequate amount of space inside for your car!
Here is how a well-thought-out and properly structured garage will help
You can stumble on everything without any difficulty
Remember the last time you looked for the cleaning attachments for your utility vacuum, a head screwdriver or roll of duct tape?
Your storage preferences are more or less boundless – hooks, bins and small baskets on a slat wall system, or cabinets and drawers as part of a well thought-out and structured workbench. That means less time spent searching for your stuff. You might even save money on duplicate things such as screws, tape, nails, and weed trimmer lines all for the reason that you can now come across what you already have.
Costly stuff stays safe
For such a disorganized space, the garage surely does hold a little costly stuff. Bicycles do not come cheap, and neither do garden and lawn equipment or power tools. And then there is the most expensive one: your car or any other vehicle.
With a properly planned garage, costly stuff stays safe. The paint of your car will not get chipped from a bicycle falling against it, or from your kids, by chance, riding their scooter, electric toy car or tricycle into it. During the procedure of sorting out the garage, you will get rid of toys your kids have grown out of, and you will hit upon a protected place for what they still use.
Other lawn equipment, exterior furniture and tools can be securely kept within cabinets or on wall mounted storage accessories so they will not fall off a shelf or land in a heap in the corner.
Dangerous tools and equipment stay safe
Garages also have a few dangerous tools and equipment that you would like to keep safe from the little hands and prying eyes of children. Dwell on any electric or gas garden tools that you have, such as a hedge trimmer or chainsaw. Power tools such as circular saws and drills also need protection. Not to mention any rock salt or fertilizers that you keep in this space.
The entire garage will look airier and cleaner
Yours is not the only home on the block with a disorganized garage. It makes sense, really – the space is just a traverse from your car – if you are fortunate and you have got space for it – to your house, and a place to store outdoor equipment. So its neatness and orderliness – or lack thereof – does not have an effect on your lifestyle as much as an untidy house world. That is a bad amalgamation, but one that is uncomplicated to remedy.
Regardless of how many times you clean the floor, untidiness looks dirty, and it can even create a centre of attention for frightening critters such as mice and bugs. When you put your garage in order, the entire space looks smart and stays free from bugs and dirt.
If an uncluttered garage looks airier, that is for the reason that it actually is. Piles of loose stuff and boxes lying about take up extra space as compared to wall-mounted storage shelves, cabinets, and systems that make the best use of wall space and keep things off the floor.
Make good selections simpler
Anybody can get organized. It is staying structured that is the bigger trick. You are more expected to do it when something is convenient. That applies to almost everything from sorting the mail and hanging up your coat to putting things away in the garage.
Convenient storage encourages kids to place their toys away rather than tossing them on the garage floor and makes it effortless for you to put the drill back in its place and set all of the vacuum tools on the shelf where they go.
In a lot of homes, warm weather makes the garage almost a revolving door. Kids run in and out grabbing balls and bikes, and you will spend weekends working on projects and most likely washing the car. Wouldn’t it be amazing to open the door and not worry about what the neighbours might assume? Much more important, visualize a space where everything has a place, and there is room left over for a vehicle or two.
With a little creativeness and resourcefulness, even the smallest garage can store your belongings, in conjunction with a place to park your vehicle and workspace. To know how it can be done with custom-fit storage solutions by Garage Tailors, feel free to give us a call at 416.617.7551!
