When you think about the rooms in your home, you may list off bedrooms, bathrooms, the kitchen, living room and dining room. One room that is often forgotten is the garage. While you may not consider the garage a living space, it’s a vital area of your home. It’s the place you store items you don’t want to keep inside, and it’s where you park your car – assuming you currently have enough floor space to do so.
If the garage is your least favorite room, consider how garage organization systems can revitalize the space and make you fall back in love with this forgotten room.
Garage Storage Options Decrease Clutter
- Garage storage cabinets provide a home for many of your belongings. By living behind closed doors, items such as paint, cleaning supplies, pesticides and fertilizer are less of a hazard to your children and pets.
- Garage shelving is open to the air with very few restrictions as to what you can store there. This makes shelves the perfect place to store bulky items you want off the ground.
- Overhead shelving is a great way to maximize the storage space in your garage. Place items in hefty plastic bins and lift them off the ground, away from pests and water that could damage your belongings.
- Garage wall storage options, including slatwall with hooks and baskets, are incredibly versatile. Store everything from power tools to bikes to paper towel rolls in a flexible, organized way.
Garage Organization Systems Let You Reclaim Square Footage
When clutter gathers in piles across the garage floor, the space becomes much less productive. You might even run out of room to park your car. Why not reclaim this square footage with a garage organization system?
Newly reclaimed floor space offers infinite potential. Install a workbench or carpentry table. Bring exercise equipment into the garage. Set up a protector and movie screen for summertime flicks with the neighbors. Install a heater and use the space for projects all year round. The possibilities are endless!
Custom Garage Storage Increases Home Value
When potential homebuyers consider your property, they want to envision themselves in the space. Garage organization systems make a good impression and may even allow you to increase your asking price. After all, it’s much more appealing to imagine living in a home with an organized garage than a disorganized one, even if potential buyers know you’ll be taking everything out of the garage when you sell the house. Custom storage is all about showcasing the space in your garage better when you put your home on the market.
