Before you plan to organise your wooden garage, you have to keep a lot of factors in mind. Garages are often the places we use to store items and park our cars and motorcycles. However, wooden garages are not just limited to parking and they are used for many other purposes. The wooden garage is just a name given to them and many people use them to store excess items and other things. Here in this article, we will talk about the many ways in which you can tidy up your garage to make the most use of the available space you have.

If you arrange your wooden garage in a proper way, then you will have a lot more space to arrange things and this will free up a lot of area in the corners as well. A nicely arranged wooden garage not only looks good, but it also helps you to find the things in a right manner and you can store them according to their usage. Even if you have a smaller wooden garage setup, you can use the space in a way to make the most of it.

Analyse and Prioritise

The first things you have to do in the garage are to assess the available space and then accordingly organise the space in such a way that you use the most of it. Many people just push all the things inside the garage and they make a pile of everything. Ask yourself what the main motive of your garage is. Is it parking? To have a workspace? To store items? To store garden equipment? You might be able to store all of them if you prioritise what will go where. All you have to do is to sit and make the right plan so that you will be able to analyse the available space and work accordingly.

Start Purging

The best way to make space in your wooden garage is by getting rid of all the unnecessary stuff that you have packed the garage with. Many people are in the habit of stuffing the garage with things that they no longer use. Decide what things you want to keep and all those things that are no longer used, donate them to some deserving cause. Donating the items is a wonderful option as you end up helping people who might be in need of things that are useless to you. Get rid of any duplicate things and try to organise the garage so that you have the space available for the items that you really use and then you get to store them in a much better way.

Make a Note of Things and Create Space

After cutting down on all the stuff that you no longer need, take a note of the space that you have just made and then make a plan to fill it up in the right way. Never start organising things before making all the right space in the garage. Draw an outline of the space and then take a look at all the items that you want to store in the garage. Start with the bigger things and then gradually move towards the smaller things as they can be stored at the end. Always look at the vertical storage options as they help you to make the most use of the available space. If you have storage sections position on the walls of the garage, then you can use them to store small boxes. Stack the things according to the frequency of their usage. If you are going to store a frequently used item at the back, then you have to remove everything to get to it and this will disturb all the storage planning. Store any bikes and motorcycles near the door, so that it is lot easier for you to just grab them and go.

How to Store Things

After spacing up the relevant places, take a note of what you have and then get the things that will help you to store the items in an organised way. Get trash cans and racks to store smaller items. Trash cans or something similar can be used to store things like skateboards, balls, bats, racquets etc. Tools can be organised in a box and you can store them in sections according to their size. You can also use clear plastic storage boxes to see the items that are used on frequent basis. This allows you to look at the items without opening the boxes and this saves your time when you are looking for specific things. Small plastic jars can be used to store nails and screws. If you have bigger equipment like a lawn mower, then make sure that you have arranged a place at the side of the garage so that you can easily take them out after opening the garage door and you don’t have to move several other things to get it out. You can also use the help of labels to mark the things that you use on more regular basis. This will help you to get to them in a much easier manner.

Arranging Things in a Proper Zone

The most basic things that you have to keep in mind are the right arrangements. Even if you get all the right boxes and containers to store up the items, you need to arrange them in a manner that they leave a lot of space for the other things to be accommodated. Labelling the items will help you to find them easily and stacking the boxes right will help you to store them in the right manner. The ideas are endless when it comes to the arrangements and you can even enlist the help of professionals. They will help you in the right usage of the space and then it will be a lot easier for you to arrange the things in an organised way.
