It’s time to roll-up our sleeves, spend a little time brainstorming, and create a garage that you will love for years to come — let’s get started!
Step 1: Declutter
First, before you do anything else, it’s time to declutter your garage. A lot of various things can end up in our garages: bags of old clothes we have yet to take to the local thrift store, an old lawnmower we vow to fix one day, and even Christmas decorations we don’t know what to do with. Instead of turning a blind eye, it’s time to tackle the clutter. If you’re feeling a little overwhelmed, tackle one task at a time and have that dumpster ready!
Step 2: Clean It
After you’ve cleared away all those random odds and ends that clutter your garage, it’s time to clean it. Even the person with the most organized garage will need to sweep out the dirt and dust that inevitable buildup in our Sacramento garages. Springtime is the perfect time to clear your garage of cobwebs and kick the critters that might be hiding in the corners to the curb. As you clean your garage, open your doors and windows to allow fresh air to carry away dust and grime that you’ve stirred up from all your hard work.
Step 3: Air It Out
Even after you’ve cleaned out your garage we suggest, airing out your garage. After months of being mostly shut, it will have quite the buildup of stale air. Airing out your garage will not only provide a better experience for you as you clean and reorganize it, it will also allow you to better enjoy the end result.
Step 4: Create Your Vision
Next, it’s time to decide what you want your garage to be for you: do you wish for it to be your man cave or workshop, or will it be the place to keep your outdoor gear or garden shears? In our experience as Sacramento’s Top Rated Local Custom Garage Providers, we’ve seen how flexible the space of your garage can be to create a place that offers a relaxing environment to do what you love. If you’re not sure what you can do with your space, it may be time to get a second opinion.
Step 5: Organize
Once you know what you want your garage to be for you, it’s time to create the vision. To make your dream a reality, you may need to employ the use of everything from custom garage cabinets and invest in a built-in workspace, as well as heavy duty tool boxes or plastic organizer boxes. Take your time creating the most-useful and organized space that will best serve you. As you organize, think about what works with your needs and organizational style — make your garage yours!
Step 6: Maintain & Enjoy
After you’ve created your dream garage, it’s time to take a step back and admire it and all the hard work and investment that it took to create your perfect space. As you continue to enjoy your space, do your best each time you use it, to utilize your organization system and to put things back where they belong. If you end up with a little bit of clutter in your garage at the end of the week, take a few minutes to tidy it up with the rest of your home. Spending a few moments here and there to pick up your garage will save you from having to spend a whole day, weekend, or more reorganizing it.
