A Garage Organization Checklist for Ultimate Garage Storage

RedLine Garagegear Garage Cabinets InstalledIt’s a fact that only about 31 percent of men claim to have garage organization. However, those that have achieved garage organization said they decided to do so because: they needed more space; they believed their garage could be safer with proper garage storage on the wall; they wanted to make selling their home easier.

Did you know that a single person can save 140 hours a year looking for something if their garage was organized?

For all of these reasons, more and more people are realizing that garage organization is important and garage storage is worth investing in. To help you get started, here is a checklist for garage organization and ultimate garage storage:

  • Measure your garage to see how much wall space you have to work with. Once you begin investing in garage storage, the first goal should be to get as much onto the wall as possible.
  • Categorize the items in your garage by function so you know how much space you need to achieve garage organization. Common categories include: woodworking tools and supplies; home paint and maintenance; sports equipment tools; car washing and maintenance items; etc.
  • Toss out or donate things you don’t use, have duplicates of, and things that are broken or worn
  • Determine how many garage storage units you might need based on the categories of garage items you want to store.
  • Determine what (if any) specialty garage cabinets you might need based on the items you want to store. For example: heavy items that are used often are probably best stored in a cabinet drawer; poisonous yard and pest chemicals may be best kept in small, locked upper cabinets; slat wall panels and accessories are a good choice for yard maintenance tools; they also work well for storing smaller tools above a workbench area.
  • Consider a corner cabinet to maximize unsued corner space.
  • Choose a finish that fits you and your home’s style. GarageStorageCabinets.com offers 20 attractive mix-and-match color combinations; ensuring each customer a look that fits their lifestyle.

Most are looking for a “do it yourself” project to simplify their lifestyle by organizing their garage, basement, utility room, etc. The best way to get started is to decide how you want to use your space. Decide which space should be organized for which purpose.

As with every organization project that you tackle, organizing your home is about making your life easier and more manageable.  Our Work Space and RedLine Garagegear cabinets offer maximum storage and organization for the “do it yourselfer”.

Further Organization

Another great way to get organized in the home is to utilize shelving. Shelving creates great space where items can be organized and still remain easily accessible and visible. Shelving is often an overlooked aspect of home décor and furniture. Ignoring its importance can make a big difference in the comfort and convenience of your home. A clean and well organized workspace ultimately saves time, frees up wasted space, reduces stress, and increases self-esteem. With the right amount of planning and perseverance, it becomes possible to store your items while still having easy access to them. By following a few simple steps, you can utilize shelving to its fullest extent and greatly reduce clutter in your life.

Clutter Free

Messy, Cluttered GarageA problem that tens of millions of American households suffer is that of clutter. Many of us resolve to become clutter free, to organize our lives, to simplify. As we reach these resolutions, we must determine what to do with all the stuff that has been cluttering our lives. Shelving and/or garage cabinets are a great solution for storing the items we must have.

One of the secrets to getting your home and surroundings permanently neat and tidy is to assess your full storage needs, both inside the house and outside. After that assessment, you can then ensure you have the right storage facilities in the right place. What will make your organizing resolution a success is consistent effort over time.
