Your Quick Guide to Managing a Cluttered Garage

Every garage owner knows how messy garages can get. Everything you don’t use anymore – but don’t want to throw out – takes up precious space. At one point, the garage may become a landfill of children’s toys, old bikes, and other items nobody needs. It’s time to end this and give your garage a renewed purpose!

We’ll offer several tips on managing a cluttered garage and transforming it into a functional area.

TAKE EVERYTHING OUT

Most owners might not know where to start. The first step in organizing a garage is taking everything out. Many garage owners will be surprised by the amount of stuff they are storing. We recommend clearing out the floor first and working on the sides later. Choose a section to begin, and don’t stop until everything gets removed. With a cleared garage, you’ll get a “fresh start.” 

THROW OUT, KEEP, AND SELL OR DONATE

While cleaning out the garage, sort out the items into three piles: throw out, keep, and sell or donate. Owners can have a hard time estimating whether an item is worth keeping. As a general guideline, keep everything used more than once in the past year. You can also save expensive tools and equipment. Toss anything that hasn’t been functioning for years.

If there are many functional items nobody’s using, consider organizing a yard sale or donating.

ASK SOMEONE FOR HELP

You might not be the best judge on what should be kept or thrown out. Ask a family member or a friend for help for this process to work. They can be the voice of reason and help make the right call.

THINK ABOUT STORAGE SYSTEMS

The secret to a well-organized, appealing garage lies in investing in effective storage systems. Barrels, boxes, cans, and other bulky items on shelves or the floor will still make the garage look cluttered.

Garage cabinets and drawers can keep the garage tidy and organized. They aid in getting the most out of a garage while saving space. When using drawers, prioritize accessibility and frequency of use. Keep the items used most often within reach.

CHECK THE GARAGE DOOR

Once the garage is organized and cleaned, it’s necessary to ensure the doors are working correctly. Functional garage doors protect the stored possessions, prevent significant internal temperature fluctuations, and keep intruders from getting in.

Reach out to professionals who can examine your door and estimate whether repairs are necessary.

ENJOY A DECLUTTERED GARAGE!

While it may seem like a daunting task, managing and organizing a cluttered garage is essential. Take a day or two and dedicate the time to transform the garage into a functional and tidy space. The professionals can help you in getting the best out of the space. Don’t hesitate to consult them regarding your garage organization, protection, and accessibility.
