Ah an organised garage – isn’t that the dream! Looking at your garage in its current state, systematic storage may seem near impossible. Luckily, we’ve gathered some helpful tips to get you started on your way to a heavenly garage storage system. Plus, we stock a range of high quality and affordable shelving units ranging from heavy duty shelving to medium duty shelving and everything in between. Let’s get started with six helpful tips for a perfectly organised garage.

1. Sort, clean and prepare your garage space

Start by sorting through everything in the garage, emptying the space out completely and categorising items. This is also a great opportunity to purge some belongings that might not be of use to you anymore and donate them to a local charity or op shop. Once you’ve sorted through everything, you can sweep, leaf blow, or hose down the floor of the garage to get it squeaky clean and ready to set up your system of organisation.

Once you’ve thoroughly cleaned your garage, it’s time to get started implementing some shelving units and storage systems.

2. Use long span shelving units to house large boxes

Long span shelving units are excellent medium-duty storage solutions. These shelving units are great for storing large boxes and perfect for housing items like camping gear, toys, Christmas and holiday decorations, winter clothing, and more. If you can, label boxes clearly and try to use clear plastic containers so you can see what’s inside.

5. Create a ‘mini mudroom’

Mudrooms are great for keeping shoes, coats, brollies, and bags organised and the house free from dirt and clutter. Many homes in this day and age aren’t built with a mudroom – however, the garage offers a perfect solution for creating a makeshift mudroom. Hang a simple hook rack for coats and bags, and either buy or build a simple shoe rack for shoes and boots.  You can also lay out a rug to mark the mudroom space and to wipe off feet before entering the house. For a finishing touch, add a labelled basket to place brollies in!

Not only will a mudroom keep your shoes, coats, brollies and more organised, it will keep your home clean and tidy by preventing mud and dirt getting tracked into the house.
