Has your garage storage situation become so out-of-control that your cars are now permanently left in the driveway or on the street? Is everyone on your block in the same situation, so that the number of cars lining the street makes it look more like a used car lot than a residential neighborhood?
One of the most common complaints among home owners is that their homes don't have enough storage space; the recent explosion in the number rental storage facilities is indicative of the problem. But many homeowners simply turn to their garages as a solution for too little interior storage.
The problem is that, without a well-planned organization scheme, their garage is soon buried with extra possessions and no one can remember where anything is. So the garage organizer has become almost as essential as the rental storage unit.
Different Garage Organizers
A garage organizer can take many forms: a wall garage organizer will offer shelves, storage nooks, and hooks for hanging tools. A garage organizer can include a built-in workbench with cabinets and drawers, or resemble open book shelves.
Some garage organizers will have racks for bicycles, surfboards, or other outdoor equipment so that it can be kept safe without taking up space needed for automobiles. A garage organizer can be as simple as transparent plastic storage baskets which will allow quick identification of their contents, or as fancy as a wall of built-in cabinets with a built in sink for arranging flowers, washing the family dog, and cleaning the catch from family fishing trips.
Handymen will like a garage organizer which lets them have easy access to their tools; walls with hooks are an ideal solution and some are even available with outlined images of each tool so that everything goes back where it belongs. A garage organizer can also be used to store seasonal clothing, freeing up space in the home's interior closets.
Keep It Clean
Having a single garage organizer, or several, will not mean you don't still need to clean your garage periodically, especially if it is a work area. But having the organizers will greatly improve the ease of annual or semi-annual cleanings; and you'll be able to make room for your new stuff by winnowing out the old, so you don't end up back where you began with a garage too cluttered to be useful.
If you're considering revamping your garage to make it a well-organized storage area, think about going through your belongings scheduled for storage and having a yard sale before you begin. You may end up needing less garage organizers than you think, and have a little extra money to spend on your project!
