New Year’s Resolutions: No more chaos in your garage

New Year’s Resolutions: No more chaos in your garage

We all dream of a mess free garage space. However, accomplishing that goal can be more difficult than it initially sounds. Mostly, because there’s a lot of clutter you have to organize, and this process implies you’ll be getting rid of lots of things you might have a hard time letting go, like your kids’ childhood toys and other mementos.

Cleaning up your garage, can be beneficial not only for you but for everyone in your household. Although most people put their garage in the last place of importance when it comes to remodeling, refurbishing and upgrading. Nonetheless, the garage is not only the space where we store our cars but it’s also the place we always turn to when we need a storage space or when we need to work on a special project that can’t be brought into the main spaces of the house.

In order to carry out those projects and truly taking advantage of your garage space, you need to come up with a practical approach towards decor and organization that allows you to make the most out of your garage space. But in order to accomplish your goals of leveraging your garage, there are a few things you should take into account:

Define the purpose of your garage to make sure you plan the space correctly. If you need more storage space, aim for alternatives such as ceiling storage units, pegboards, multipurpose counter tops and shelves.
If you want a workshop on your garage, make sure the space is properly distributed for you to work comfortably and still fit in your car and the rest of the things that you plan on keeping in the garage.

Choose a color palette that matches your needs and make sure to give the space a deep cleaning before starting to paint the space. Since garages are mostly dark, try to go for light shades that open up the space and make it look bigger, if you opt for a bright yet creamy shade, it will open up the space whilst keeping it cozy.

Lighting is very important, so windows are ideal to let the natural light into the room. However, if you don’t have the chance to add windows to your garage try to design and plan out what’s the best way to distribute your lighting fixtures across the room to ensure the whole space receives the appropriate amount for light for you to conduct whatever activities you plan to carry out in your garage.

Choose the furniture carefully; focus on pieces that are both functional and aesthetically pleasing. But most of all, don’t forget to get furniture items that can fit into the space properly, so before going out to buy them make sure to carefully measure your space and plan its distribution.
