You might remember that a while ago, we wrote about making the most out of the space in your garage. We talked about de-cluttering and packing things into clear boxes which are all great ways to keep your garage organised.
However, if you’re more of the stylish type and want to show your garage some extra love with a make-over, while at the same time keeping your things organised, we’ve come up with some ways for you to do exactly that!
Pegboard wall hangings
In our earlier post, we told you of the brilliance in investing in some shelving and cabinets for your garage, and we stand by that – shelving is not only a great way to keep things in plain sight but it also helps to de-clutter your garage.
However, you can have some fun with it – when we say to invest in shelving, you don’t have to stick with the standard units, there are plenty of different options, and a pegboard for all your smaller items is one such option.
Why not give each of your tools their own proper place with outlinings too?
Storing bikes vertically
Space is the priority in your garage – it’s long sought after and you’ll always want more. You might not be able to make your garage bigger, but you can make more of your space by storing your bikes vertically.
You might have seen this done in the shops or even in someone else’s garage – it’s a really helpful and ingenious way of storing your bikes while saving on space.
You might also want to try hanging them from the ceiling. You can do so with some strong hooks and a couple of pieces of wood.
Just make sure those hooks are secure!
Shoe racks don’t get enough credit these days, with most people opting for the floor when it comes to putting their shoes away – but a shoe rack offers organization and a much more visually appealing way to keep your shoes together.
It gives them all a proper place; it means no-one can end up with a single shoe or a mismatched pair, and it get rids of all the clutter lots of shoes can create.
If you want a more niche option, you could use old crates to create your very own shoe racks – you could even have separate boxes for the different style of shoes!
Of course, there are plenty more ingenious ways to keep your garage organized, so be sure to check back with this blog in the future where we’ll make a return to this series!
