As a homeowner, you may be wondering if you can update your garage to act as a storage and organization system for your life. For most, the rarely used and unwanted items end up stacked in the garage. What if you could take all that clutter and get it out of the way without having to remove it from your garage permanently? What if you could have your friends over for the game and not have to encroach on your family? Garage Solutions can make that happen for you.
In this article, you will learn how to make your garage storage and organization system renovation much easier. After reading the collection of tips here, you will have a better understanding of what it actually takes to transform your garage.
Start With Your Design
While you may be able to draw up a basic layout on a napkin or use a free software online, it’s much easier to hire a professional to help you design your dream garage. The design process will include what you want in the garage, how you would like the storage and organization of your belongings to function, and how you would like to use your garage on a daily basis. With this information and much more, a professional garage designer can create a visual representation of your dream.
Here are garage storage and organization themes that may inspire you to think bigger:
- Sports Bar Man Cave
- Woodworking/Hobby Shop
- Mechanic’s Den
- Exotic Vehicle Collection
- Home Office
- Adventure Headquarters
Once this design is created, you and the expert can then discuss what you like, don’t like, and any updates prior to any materials being purchased, as well as discussions about permits (if you need them). This saves you time, money, and the stress of not knowing how your garage will turn out
How to Decide on a Storage and Organization System
What you will be storing in your garage is just as important as how you will be storing it. A wall storage system that supports your bicycle is going to need to be accessible whether you have your vehicle parked inside or not. Knowing how you want to use your garage will help decide on the storage and organization method.
For example, you may be an outdoor enthusiast. You have tons of gear that you need to keep stored between epic adventures. From camping gear to climbing gear, it all needs a place in your garage. A series of garage cabinets, as well as wall storage, can be the answer to your cluttered garage space.
Compare outdoor gear to a mechanic’s needs. They are completely different. A mechanic is going to need more drawer and shelf space for all of the tools. This is why knowing how you want to use your garage helps decide how to implement a storage and organization system that fits your lifestyle.
Hire Professional Garage Solution Experts
Some homeowners believe they can save money by doing their garage remodel on their own — and they would be right. They can save on the up-front cost; however, they typically spend way more as their DIY garage storage and organization system ages, and they have to maintain it more often. When you hire professionals, you’re paying for the expertise and the longevity of your garage storage and organization system.
Remove the Clutter Before The Garage Storage Experts Arrive
As a part of the process, you will want to remove any of your belongings from the garage prior to the garage storage professionals arrive. Waiting until they knock on your door will slow the process down greatly. Granted, some companies will help you remove all of your things as a part of your garage renovation service; however, you will want to ask about this service ahead of time.
