TIPS AND TRICKS FOR YOUR GARAGE
With all of that free time spent at home, you finally have time to put an end to putting tasks and projects on the backburner. Take for instance tackling the elephant in the garage-- the clutter! Don’t fear, we have a game plan to encourage you to get the job done- once and for all. With these five steps, you will have a garage you are proud of. Let’s get started.
GET EVERYTHING OUT
We all know that the root of the problem is being overwhelmed when you open those garage doors and stare the clutter monster right in the eye. It’s a lot. It’s everywhere. It’s easy to get discouraged. Where to get started, right? The answer is to just get the junk OUT. Once you can start with a clean slate, the task at hand will no longer feel so daunting. It doesn’t have to be a lone effort! Get the kids or your pals over to make a day of it, or two. Make a game of it! Once this is over, the ball can start rolling.
MAXIMIZE YOUR WALL SPACE
Maximize your wall space by getting rid of unnecessary amounts of wall decor and tools. Stick with simple, minimalistic decorations and organization tools. For decoration, we recommend our Garage Metal Sign with sleek cutting-edge design and a timeless, vintage font. Place your custom metal wall artin the center of your garage wall and build everything around it. This piece will last ages! For organization, our experts recommend using utility hooks with a steel pegboard to give your space optimum organization potential. Fleximount hooks provide a strong hold and allow you to hang your less-used heavy equipment and cords to open more space.
Now that you have your wall decor all set up, it’s time to take inventory! This is a sure-fire way to ensure you know exactly what you have. It only takes 30 minutes and can in turn save you a ton of hours from digging around for that one tool you thought you had but actually don’t. Keep this list on a digital note application or keep it in your file cabinet.
CREATE DESIGNATED SPOTS
Now that you have a list of your items, you can give them their own designated spots! Designated spots are ideal for keeping track of the little bits and bobs we all tend to lose. This works for any space in your home or office where you need a little assistance keeping track of things. We all have a junk drawer, but it’s time to replace that drawer with a more practical place to keep your miscellaneous. A pro tip for creating more space in your toolbox is repurposing old tins and jars! Everyone has some old tea tins or coffee cans hiding on the top of our fridge. Use some labels to keep track of those nails and screws.
CREATE A LAYOUT
Trust us when we say a layout is the key to survival.
Think of it as creating a game plan or map for getting the job done. This will help you drastically when it comes to knowing just where to put things. Pile everything into categories to easily see what you have the most of. This can often surprise you! During this step, it would be a great chance for you to put things in a donation box!
