The garage is one of the spaces in a home that has several uses. Usually, a garage is constructed in a prominent part of the property and easily accessible. It can quickly turn into the most unorganized part of the house because it is the most convenient place to dump or store various items. Over time, a garage can be overflowing with junk and unused items, leaving just enough space for the car, with no more room for people to move.
Decluttering the garage and reclaiming valuable space is not as hard as you might think, but it requires determination. Homeowners can learn recycling methods, sort through their accumulated stuff to find things that are useful, and stuff that could be donated or sent to trash.
Clean and remove all junk
The first step to maximize garage space is to clean the area and remove all the unnecessary materials dumped inside. They can be thrown away in dumpsters or hauled away by a same day junk removal company for the quick disposal of junk. After all the garage waste has been removed, assess the available space and plan how to reorganize and divide the space for car and item storage.
Use shelving for tools and car care products
Organizing all the items stored in the garage can free up some space previously occupied. Most of the common items that are scattered in the garage are tools and car care products. These are essential items that homeowners use regularly, so putting them on organized shelves is the perfect way to keep them handy. The storage units can be in the form of roll-out drawers, sliding shelves, or stacking racks, so tools and car care products are always within easy reach. It is possible to recover more garage space by using space-saving cabinets, shelves and racks.
High space maximization
Cabinets installed in the higher space of the garage can also save its low-level areas. Since the garage serves as storage for many things, these wall cabinets can provide sufficient space for non-garage goods, and the entire floor area can be used for its original purpose. This kind of installation is simple, fast, economical, and at the same time, does not consume too much space.
With ample space, you can convert part of the garage into a place to rest and relax. A portable hammock can be a solution. Depending on the height of your garage, you might be able to build a loft, giving you extra space to rest or store other household items that you use occasionally.
Making a rolling workshop
For garage areas that serve as both parking and working space, a rolling workstation is an ideal space-saving solution. Buy one that fits your purpose and needs. It is easy to store in one part of the garage, and you can position it in an area that allows you to move and work freely depending on the work you are doing. Even a rolling workbench can have ample tool storage space, making it easy to have access to all the tools and equipment you need.
