Creative Ways to Organize your Garage this Winter
Take advantage of vertical space with hooks:
One great way to organize your garage that doesn’t take as much effort to create, gain access to your equipment and add more space to your garage is by the use of hooks. Also by hanging up your items you help them to last longer. Ladders, rakes, shovels, backpacks, helmets etc. can all hang on hooks this will provide easier access around your garage and maneuvering around the equipment in general.

Use your walls to their maximum potential
The walls are another way to best organize your garage, by adding opening shelving and cabinets to secure your equipment. Now, try splitting which items you put up on the shelves or in the cabinet (or closet) areas. Such as for smaller and items you will use on a consistent basis like cleaners, tools, appliances etc. Use the closet and/ or cabinets if you have bulky equipment that needs to be accessed yet not as often as those upon the shelves.
Organize equipment and accessories by their function
Cabinets, shelving and hooks are great but some items they need more space or just another setup from the others. Items, like tools that probably need to be stored in a tool case or box, lawn chairs, sports gear bags and ball will probably fall under this category. This will help to create a better way of obtaining your equipment. If you need more help, then consult with a professional designer to see which equipment will go where.
