This summer, get organized and make the most of your garage by creating a storage plan.
Experts recommend measuring and sketching out the space and then mapping out where you want to store different things. An example of this is you can designate different areas of your garage to different categories, like tools, sports equipment, or lawn care. Storing your items by category makes upkeep easier and can help you find things faster.
Then think about the size of your items. The biggest elements dictate the space you’ll work around for everything else. Appliances, cars, and large tools should have a specific area set aside. The rest of your garage items should be arranged around them to allow easy access.
Once you’ve organized your garage, make time to keep it that way. A few minutes per day or week can go a long way toward preventing chaos.
Do you want to take your garage to the next level and hire a professional organizer or garage contractor? Here’s what you can expect for your money:
Basic DIY setup: $50-$200. This will get you the shelves, hooks, and tool racks you need to bring your garage workshop under control.
Simple pro shelving: $1,000-$1,500. A contractor will install a basic shelving and organizational system.
Midrange custom job: $3,000-$5,000. This can get you epoxy-sealed floors, open shelving, cabinets, a work area, and wall storage.
Upscale custom work: $5,000 and up. You can overhaul your garage into a customized organizational dream.
