It's easy to neglect an out-of-the way space like your garage. Often, it's the messiest and most disorganized area of the home. This time of year, when most of us have an urge to declutter and start fresh, is the perfect time of year to consider an upgrade. Here's what you need to consider:
Many people use their garage to store seasonal decorations, furniture, and more. If your stuff is taking up too much space, you'll want to invest in a good storage system. Ceiling Storage racks are popular these days, and you can find some DIY instructions online if it's a project you want to tackle on your own.
Tool organization can easily get out of hand. There's nothing more frustrating than not being able to find the tool you need, when you need it. Aside from countless tool storage systems, check out these great ideas for storage options if you're looking for a fun weekend project.
Add Some Color
Who says your garage has to be drywall and posts? A quick paint treatment will give your garage a homier feel, and pave the way toward a more organized space. Painting the whole room may seem like a big project - in that case, add some color to your cabinets and shelving. You'll be surprised what a difference it makes.
Most garages are lit with one single bulb in the middle of a large space. This dim lighting can automatically make the space feel like a throwaway area. Add some additional lighting so you can see where you're going, see what needs to be organized, and give the space a fresh feel.
Floor tiles are an inexpensive way to add both traction and decoration to your garage floor. And since they come in a variety of colors and styles, you'll be able to find something that suits your space perfectly.
