9 WAYS TO UPGRADE YOUR GARAGE
our tips to organize, and transform, your overlooked, cluttered garage
CLEAN YOUR TRASH CANS
Every now and then, hose down your trash cans to eliminate lingering spills and smells.
PURCHASE AN OUTDOOR RUG
Lay a small, durable, area rug near the entrance to your home.
GET STUFF OFF OF THE FLOOR
Line one of your garage walls with two levels of hooks, or pegs, to hang sports gear, rarely worn coats, and gardening tools— getting these things off of the floor will help keep them longterm organized.
CONSIDER OVERHEAD RACKS
Install overhead racks for additional storage of oversized things like skis, snowboards, large yard equipment, or your car’s unused roof rack.
PURCHASE AN ORGANIZING RACK FOR SHOES
Create an organized area for shoes, either a wall, shoe rack, or a standing, shoe rack, so that there is a place to toss dirty shoes as people enter your home from the garage.
PAINT YOUR GARAGE FLOORS
If you have extra household paint, use it to paint your garage floors— you’ll conceal scuffs and unsightly spills, and add some cheer to an otherwise lackluster space.
