It may seem natural to keep your car in the garage, but there are better ways. A garage can be a great space for storage, but it can also feel like an overcrowded mess.
The excellent news is that there are plenty of tips to transform your garage before you even start putting things away! Read the article till the end!
1. Start by getting rid of stuff
If you don’t need a project, take it apart and put it aside for another day. You can also sell or donate items on Craigslist or eBay, which will help you save money in the long run.
If your garage is full of broken tools and old clothes, this is an opportunity to declutter your life!
If things anger you about where they’re stored (the way they’re organized), throw them away or give them away—it’s time to move on from those feelings now!
2. Consider the life of your garage
If you’re going to give a lot of time to your garage, it’s important to consider how much space you need.
If you have a large car or truck needing storage space, consider getting an enclosed area with open casement windows. This will help keep the elements out while allowing light and air to flow inside.
If you use your garage as an office space, consider how much furniture and equipment can fit without feeling crowded. The trick here is finding a balance between having enough room for each item while not crowding everything together so tightly that there’s no room left over.
3. Motorized Garage Door Screens
If you want to transform your garage, motorized garage door screens are the way to go.
These devices are designed to be attached to the garage door and provide an easy way to open and close the door without manually opening it. They can also be used as a security measure against burglars.
A motorized garage door screen is easy to install, so that anyone can do it with minimal hassle. If you have any questions or concerns about installing a motorized garage door screen, we recommend contacting a professional contractor specializing in this installation.
4. Think about how the garage fits into your life
Think about how the garage fits into your life. Is it a place to store things? A place to work on something? An entertaining area where guests can come in and hang out while you’re doing work or watching TV?
Or is it just a storage facility where you keep all your stuff until they’re ready for pickup (my favorite)?
Once you’ve got an idea of how the garage works for you, start thinking about what kind of transformation would best suit those needs.
5. Organize your space
If you’re like most people, your garage is a mess. You have a lot of stuff in there, and it makes sense to keep track of what each item is for—but then the work gets harder as you add more items.
You can solve this by organizing your space to save time looking for things or putting them away when they’re no longer needed.
This will also help keep clutter down by ensuring everything has its proper place so that nothing falls off the shelf or goes missing during an earthquake or other natural disaster (eek).
6. Integrate outdoor equipment and supplies
If you have an outdoor equipment and supplies business, it’s important to integrate them into your garage space. You can do this in several ways, but one of the simplest is to store them outside the garage.
A shed or storage building next door is another great option because it gives you easy access when needed but keeps your tools safe from weather elements (and potential thieves).
If this is not an option for whatever reason—perhaps because there isn’t enough room or storage capacity—you may want to consider storing some items inside the home itself instead of out in the yard, where they might get damaged by rain or other elements.
7. Take advantage of technology
If your garage has been a source of frustration for you, there are plenty of ways to make it more efficient. Technology can help you get the most out of your space.
A smart garage door opener is a great way to open and close doors quickly and easily. These devices let you control your garage doors from anywhere in the home or office by using an app on iOS or Android mobile devices (or via Wi-Fi).
This allows access even when away from home. Also, it gives access when someone else needs entry into their vehicle while parked inside their driveway (such as if they forgot something inside).
A smart garage door sensor works similarly but alerts users whenever someone approaches, so they don’t have to be right next door before opening the door themselves; this means less distraction while working with tools inside!
Be smart with your storage options, and use vertical space as much as possible.
So now that you know how to transform your garage, it’s time to start!
