How to Organise Your Garage – Garage Storage Solutions

So you have decided to take on the herculean task of organising your garage and are wondering how on earth you are ever going to manage to dig through all the junk in your garage and turn it into a garage storage solution that will make your friends and family envious.

Krost has the easy answer to this. Our garage storage shelving will make sorting out your garage so much easier.

Now that you have your garage storage solution sorted, it’s time to take on the mess. The first thing to remember is that Rome wasn’t built in a day. Take a few days to sort out your garage. Don’t try to jam it all into one Saturday. You are not going to get anywhere with that approach expect failure town.

Start from one side, any one you like, and start taking a hard look at everything you have.

Ask yourself: Do I really need it? Have I got more than one? Will I ever really use it?

At first it can be quite difficult to chuck out things, but half way through you’ll find it easier to do than you expected. While you are on this evaluation process it helps if you already start grouping similar items together, i.e. garden tools with other garden items.

Once everything has been worked through by your discerning eye, it is time to go for round two – Ding Ding!

Take a look at your piles and start to judge each item from scratch. Throw out all the items you don’t need or won’t use again. You can even give them to charity if it’ll make you feel better about it.

Now that you have the core of your garage sorted it is time to envision your storage solution. Imagine how you would like to put everything on the floor on the shelves. Overhead garage storage can also be a great option if you are not keen on putting open shelves in the garage.

Now that you have a rough idea of how you want to arrange things it is time to start packing! You may find that you’ll have to move things more than once until everything is in its perfect spot, but once it is done it’ll be dead easy to maintain.

When you are placing things on the shelves remember to be practical. Place things you need often in a place they are easy to access. Place less frequently used items lower down and dangerous items on higher shelves so that small hands won’t be able to reach them.

Krost Shelving and Racking’s garage storage solutions can help you use the space you already have in the most effective way possible.
