Has your garage turned into a cluttered “dumping ground” of sorts? If so, you’re certainly not alone. Keeping a garage neat, clean, and organized can be a challenge—especially when it’s so easy and convenient to throw just about anything into this extra space to get it out of sight and out of mind. However, if your garage isn’t well organized, you could be missing out on valuable workspace and storage space. The good news is that with a little bit of time, patience, and some help from Homak products, you can transform your garage in as little as one weekend!
Organizing Your Garage – Start By Taking Inventory
The first (and most daunting) step of any garage organization process is going through your garage and taking inventory of what you have. It can be helpful here to create three different piles or sections: one pile of things you wish to keep, one pile of things you plan to donate or sell, and one pile for trash. This will help to clear out some of the unnecessary clutter and also give you a better idea of the types of storage solutions you’ll need for what remains.
Take Advantage of Vertical Space
One of the best ways to add functional space and organization to your garage is to take advantage of vertical space by adding cabinets, chests, and shelving. These are great places for storing items such as tools, gardening accessories, and car parts. Consider, for example, one of Homak’s rolling drawer side cabinets, which come in a variety of sizes and include a durable epoxy-polyester powder coat paint finish. These storage solutions are also practical because they sit on casters with wheel brakes for easy moving.
Set Up a Dedicated Workbench
If you like to work in your garage, this project is a great opportunity to set up your own dedicated workbench. Homak has a number of industrial steel workbenches to choose from that are great for storing tools and other equipment; plus, they’re durable enough for any project you may be taking on.
Stock Up on Bins and Boxes
Finally, remember that you can never have enough storage bins and small organizers. These are ideal for storing anything from screws and bolts to small tools and even fishing lures or other recreational gear. Plastic storage solutions from Homak come in a variety of configurations for standalone use or stacking on top of one another.
