Everyone needs storage space, and for a lot of people their homes do not always provide all of the storage space that you need. This is why so many Americans have turned to using their garage as a self-storage unit for their belongings rather than their cars.
This can be a great storage solution for those who need the space. However, in order to get the most out of this you will need to be organized, and this can be a chore for some. No matter the size of your garage it may never seem big enough to fit everything you need in it, but with the proper organization you can make the most of any size of garage. One of the biggest problems with using your garage for storage is the bulky, spreading towers of boxes and containers that can teeter and take up more space you would think, leaving you with much less space.
Organizing Your Garage
The number one rule when it comes to organizing your garage is just because you know where something is doesn’t mean you are organized. Stacks of boxes, things hanging from nails or being thrown over rafters is not the ideal organization you should be seeking. The major downside when it comes to using your garage for storage is that there is a lack of horizontal space. This means no cabinets, drawers, or any storage that is not the floor.
This is why one of the best ways to organize your garage while using it as a storage space is to install some shelves and even a cabinet. This helps you keep your things off of the floor, while keeping things organized. And all without the threat of teetering towers of boxes and bins tipping over as you hunt for the Christmas decorations.
