Remember when a garage was just a place to park your car? Today’s garages are organized, coordinated and clean.Your garage remodeling can be as simple as decluttering, cleaning and adding more storage options. It can also include installing wall systems as well as adding floor coverings and garage appliances.
As a first step, your family should declutter the garage. Sort through items, deciding what to keep, give away, throw away or put aside for a garage sale. If you haven’t used something in a long time, get rid of it! Next, give your garage a good cleaning, possibly some fresh paint and organize what you are keeping into different categories, e.g., gardening equipment, general tools, sports equipment.
Then, think about your storage needs based on which parts of the garage will function as space for different activities. You’ll also want to maximize vertical storage, keeping as many things as you can off of the garage floor. Storage options can include adding racks, shelves and cabinets. You might even consider a wall or overhead system from Garage Tek. Their system allows you to quickly rearrange cabinets. Plus, you can take the cabinets with you when you move, only leaving behind the system paneling.
Another option is to add easy to clean floor coverings, such as roll or tile flooring from Gladiator Garage Works. To top off your garage remodel, you can add some tread-plated steel exterior garage appliances, also available from Gladiator Garage Works.
