Garage Storage and Optimization Ideas

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011

Lowe’s home improvement expert, Mike Kraft, gives some helpful tips on how to clean and organize your garage. Start with organizing all your items into groups. This could include gardening tools, holiday and seasonal decorations, sports gear, tools, garbage and recycling. Once you have grouped your items, create a map of your garage, making zones for each group. This is the step you want to be sure your most often used items are in easily accessible areas. After you know where to place everything, you can purchase the right storage containers, shelving units and storage racks. Put a garden tools rack by the garage door so you can pick them up on your way to the yard. Try putting sports equipment in clear plastic storage containers and on shelving units. Also, place bikes on hoists so they are out of the way and above your car. Anything that is rarely used, usually holiday decorations, should be put up on high shelves. Finally, place trash and recycling bins close to the house door so you can quickly drop in trash and recyclables.
