For a lot of people, the garage space is a place to keep the junk – unused baby things from decades back, children’s bicycles, yard supplies, and other things. It is easily the most disorganized space in most homes. In some instances, the junk even keeps the cars out of the garage, as it serves as the storage/dumpsite for almost anything.
You can, however, fix this with a few home improvement tips. Whether you want the space to focus on garage services, you prefer the space to be a storage unit, or a combination of both depends on you. Indeed, reviews on websites like reviewsbird.co.uk offer an unlimited supply of innovations and suggestions on how to optimize different parts of the house, the garage inclusive.
Below are a few ideas on how to transform your garage space from a junkyard to a fully functional space.
Use Storage Closets
Depending on how large your garage space is, you might need to build some closet spaces to hold different types of household junk. Wall mounts can provide storage for bikes, seasonal decorations, bins and other hardware. The walls could hold shelves for putting boxes of clothes and other products going out to goodwill or the dumpsites, tools, lawnmowers, brooms, among others.
Relocate some functionality to the Closets:
By this, we mean you finding a way to extend some usefulness from the indoors to the garage, either by turning the garage into an office or a gym, when and where possible. This will not only add positivity to the garage than before, it will also help expand the space indoors, which is beneficial in situations when the indoor space is becoming cramped.
Another consideration is to relocate the freezer, washing machine and other such appliances to the garage. If this is done right, it reduces the pressure from the indoor space and creates more legroom for homes where a lot of people live.
Make use of foldable products
You need a workbench once in a while? Make use of the foldable one. What about a ladder? Ditto. Using foldable products helps to maximize space whenever these products are not in use, thereby reducing the clutter that often hinders the functionality of any space.
Use it as a gym
Do you need to get in more exercise time under your belt? If you have a lot of space, you might find this unnecessary. But if you are trying to maximize space, your gym products such as treadmills and runners can fit comfortably into the garage. If you are easily distracted by activities in the house, relocating your gym to the garage might also offer the easiest way to focus on yourself.
You could also turn it into a play space for your children to run around in. Their toys and crafts can be easily stored in the garage for easy accessibility.
Note that the garage houses the biggest door in your home, and might need to be insulated to make it conducive for many of the activities suggested here, like the gym, office and playroom options. Also, make it a habit to declutter the garage regularly, as it can easily go back to the dumping site/ junkyard status with only a few misplaced products.
