It is well into spring and you still haven't tackled the cluttered, disorganized mess that somehow slammed into your garage over winter like a hurricane. Knowing the amount of work that lies ahead of you in cleaning your garage can be so overwhelming that procrastination and dread prevents you from even picking up one thing off the floor and tossing it in the garbage. What you need is something that will actually stimulate the motivation necessary in organizing and remodeling your garage so that you can do the things you want to do in that area, like park the car, create a a kid's playroom for rainy days or using it as a place to indulge your favorite hobby.
What you need are sturdy yet attractive garage storage cabinets designed in a variety of space-saving shapes and sizes. Most homeowners with messy, crowded garages forget about how much wall space is available in this room. Once you start installing wall cabinets, the task of cleaning your garage is greatly simplified. By labeling each cabinet and placing designated items in the cabinets, your garage floor quickly becomes less cluttered and the organization process feels like it has a life of its own.
Garage storage cabinets contain adjustable shelving that allows you to store items of different sizes in the same cabinets. For example, a cabinet with three shelves can hold all of your gardening tools, like hand shovels, buckets, seed packets, fertilizer bags and even weed whippers, because the shelves can be moved up or down to accommodate larger items. Wall cabinets safely store potentially harmful items that have sharp blades or are toxic if accidentally ingested by children or pets. In addition, garage owners can purchase wall cabinets that are equipped with electronic or traditional locking systems.
For items that cannot be placed in wall cabinets, companies specializing in garage organization also offer floor cabinets that stand upright and can be permanently established in a garage or remain mobile by attaching a set of smoothly operating rollers to the bottom of the cabinets. These cabinets are convenient for people who perform frequent car, mower or ATV repairs in the garage because they can be rolled easily around the garage and provide the tools necessary to complete a job. Floor cabinets hold such items as brooms, mops and large power tools as well as smaller items that can be stored on adjustable shelving within the cabinet.
Organization of your garage with wall and floor storage cabinets is further enhanced with hooks and/or pegboards that can be affixed to walls using a modular storage system providing an attachable surface. Hooks are designed to hang a variety of items on the wall and keep the floor safe, uncluttered and clean. Bicycles, golf bags, rakes, garden hoses and work clothes are just a few of the many items garage owners frequently hang on their garage hooks.
Once you have finished de-cluttering your garage, you will probably take one look at the floor and wish you had left everything on the floor to cover its ugly state of disrepair. A garage floor dimmed by oil stains, cracks and large chunks of missing concrete will instantly degrade the appearance of a garage no matter how organized it is. Why not consider “de-cluttering” your garage floor by having a professional garage remodeling company apply a coating of fresh epoxy and sealer to make it look brand new?
