organized garageIf only our cars could talk, do you think they would complain that they have to share their “home” with so many other items? Most of the time, homeowners utilize the space in their garage for a large variety of items like sporting equipment, bikes, camping gear and more. Need a spot for holiday décor storage? Put it in the garage! Bought a new electric smoker? Put it in the garage!  Doesn’t it seem unfair that our vehicles have to share their storage space amongst our clutter? Do you still have unused space in your garage? Garage Décor and More can help!

With the right planning and forethought, you can turn your garage into a storage powerhouse for so many items…including your car! We have the products and the expertise to organize your garage space, turning unusable space into usable space. We find garages to typically be the most underutilized rooms in the home, and unfortunately they tend to collect clutter fast.

As with any organization project, it’s best to sit down and decide how you want to use your garage space. If your garage is being used to store so many items you can’t even park your car in it, this is a crucial first step to getting your garage in order. The garage space reflects what type of homeowner you are. At Garage Décor and More, there are different solutions to choose from when organizing your garage.

StoreWALL Systems are great for the homeowners that want a designated spot for everything, but also prefer finding it as soon as they enter the garage. The easy to install wall systems are heavy duty and come in a variety of colors. You can use hanging baskets to display your commonly used items, from cleats to baseballs for those every day practices, or organize with open shelving for gardening supplies or commonly used cleaning items. Whether you want to use shelves, bins or totes, StoreWALL will bring those cluttered items off the floor and corners in your garage into easy accessibility and view.

Contur Cabinets and Redline Custom Cabinets are also popular wall systems for garages. These enclosed cabinets offer a sleek look, providing a place for all of your items. This is the preferred style for homeowners that have garages that face the front of the home, offering a less cluttered view for neighbors walking or driving by. With tough powder-coated finishes that come in a variety of colors and styles, easy to clean and easy on the eyes, enclosed cabinets can be used to tidy up the garage effectively. The Slimline line of cabinetry is best for tighter spaces and limited clearance. We can help you choose what’s best for you.

Helping organize the wall space in your garage is one major way to establish functional storage. Another ideaunused space in your garagel way to organize the garage is by overhead storage solutions. Certain items being stored in a garage are bulky and infrequently used. By installing overhead storage, like shelving from Hyloft, you’ll be amazed how much additional floor and wall space can be freed up! It just makes sense to store seasonal items in a spot you can access only when necessary. Better yet, garage storage typically has less temperature fluctuation than an attic so it’s a better environment for storing items you want to keep long-term, without warping or damaging. It’s also an economical solution when looking at the variety of garage storage options. Hyloft racks come in adjustable heights, too.
