    Posted on May 12th, 2015 admin No comments

    The garage is often a place to dump anything that’s taking up space in the house, but it doesn’t have to be this way. A cluttered garage means less space to work with and can make tasks more difficult such as working on the car. To make the most of your garage space, check out the tips below.

    Working in Small Spaces

    In small garages, it’s best to have everything on wheels so you can easily use items and then shift them out your way. Things like tool boxes, cabinets and benches with wheels are a must in confined work spaces and will make life much easier. Even for making a temporary space to work in, wheeled items could be effortlessly pushed to another area of your garage.

    If you’re garage is so small that it’s not feasible to drive your car in and out of it, purchase a car mover. They are the ultimate choice in convenience when wanting to move cars in tight spaces and when concerned by fumes in the garage.

    Create Space through Better Organisation

    An organised garage will allow you to find things quicker and get the job done in no time. The most important feature to any garage is shelving. A metal shelving unit on wheels offers a robust storage solution that can be easily accessed and positioned, while storing large loads.

    While having places to put things is essential, it’s also important to know where things are. Clearly labelling boxes indicating the contents within will allow you to quickly find things and easily organise spare parts, leaving more space to work in.
    Another storage solution is to convent a wardrobe into an open cabinet display. Remove the doors off an old wardrobe and you’ve got yourself an easily-accessible place to put things, making use of old, space-hogging furniture at the same time.

    Removing Clutter While Making Money

    The garage is often a place where all the clutter from the house is left to gather dust, often out of sight. To remove that clutter and reinvigorate your garage space, why not have a garage sale?

    If there are things you absolutely don’t need taking up space in your garage, a garage sale is the ideal option. Making money while freeing up space is why so many people each year take part in this well-known activity. In the UK, people often travel to car boot sales rather than display their items on the front lawn.

    In the end, having more space to work with will mean you are making the most of your garage space.
