Success With Irving Garage Storage Solutions

You hold on to that household item and keep it in the garage because one day you are sure you are going to need it. However the day you do need it, it's hidden in a pile of clutter you just can't find it. Sound familiar? Your garage is one of the trickiest spaces in your home to organize. A recent survey by the National Association of Professional Organizers, showed 50% of homeowners say their garage is the most disorganized space in the house. The nature of the items you store in your garage is the primary reason garage organization is a challenge. It is the place you keep all those items that are too big to keep inside. It's also the place you keep occasional items that you only need at certain times of the year (camping gear, Christmas decorations). You goal should be to have a garage space that is organized and accessible where your items are visible and secure. Let's also not forget the primary purpose of your garage - you need to be able to get your car in and out easily.

Make Your Garage The Talk Of The Neighborhood

Transform your garage storage with California Closets Here are some tips from the garage organization experts at California Closets Irving to help you make your garage a functional and accesible space you can be proud to show your neighbors.

1. Book out a weekend and have a thorough sort out. Have a 'keep' pile, a 'donation' pile and a 'trash' pile. Have a garage sale, and anything that is left over take it to your nearest Goodwill.

2. Start grouping your 'keep' items into categories. You will likely have piles of occasional items like luggage, sporting gear, camping equipment, automotive items, holiday decorations, and garden stuff. Try placing these items in boxes and labeling them.

3. Brainstorm your garage layout. Items like the recycling bin should be kept near the entrance so it’s easy to take out, and cleaning products should be strategically placed in an accessible spot. Store commonly used items close, and things you don’t use often further away. You should aim to make all your items accessible though and not have to pull everything out to get to it.
