Toronto Garage Storage

In most Toronto homes the garage is not just a space to store the car. It is also one of the largest and most practical spaces to store many personal items. Items that are either just too big to keep inside or are occasional items (like sporting equipment, luggage or Christmas decorations) that need to kept safe until they are needed are all commonly stored in your garage. Garage storage can be more complicated than other storage areas in the home because the items you store there are often odd shapes and oversized. lt is important to ensure everything is safely stored to protect them from cars that drive in and out (the cars need to be protected from the odd shaped items as well!). Making sure everything is visible and accessible can be a challenge.

Garage Storage Toronto: Transform your garage storage today with some tips from California Closet Toronto.

An open, functional and accessible garage storage space will transform your Toronto home. But if your garage isn't quite there yet (or is just one big pile of clutter!) - here are some tips from California Closets Toronto on how to get started cleaning it up.

Step 1. It's time for a clean out! If your garage is cluttered it’s likely you have forgetten what you have stored inside and without realising it you may have many things stored that you no longer use. Sort through your items. If you haven't used it for over a year, it's time for it to go. It can be hard to throw out some household items, so why not donate them to your nearest Goodwill – that way you will have peace of mind knowing someone who needs it will be using it. Create three piles, a trash pile, a donate pile and a keep pile.

Step 2. Look through your ‘keep pile’ and start grouping your items into categories. You might group them in catagories according to the type of item (cleaning products, sporting gear) or by the time of year of use (winter, summer, Christmas). Consider boxes and labels to help identify your items when you need them next.

Step 3. Now look at your items, in their specific categories, and consider your storage options. You want your items to be safe and secure, but also easily accessible. If you have items that difficult to access and you have to pull out a pile of other items to get to them you will likely go back to having unused clutter in your garage.
