When you are ready to organize your garage, White Rabbit’s magic is ready to come to your rescue. However, there are a few things we will ask you to do before we can start waving our wand and transforming your space. One of the biggest questions you’ll need to consider is: What is it you want to do with your garage space?
While many people simply think of the garage as the place to store the car and lawn mower, a garage often becomes so much more, especially during our cold northern winters. Have you ever even stopped to think about the potential your garage offers? We’ve seen people use the extra garage space we create for everything from a dance studio to an extra living room. When you have a place for your things, there really are no limits to what you can do with the remaining space. Shut your eyes and imagine what you could do with your free space (we’ll be talking more about the potential of your garage next month).
The most important prep step you can take to be ready for your garage transformation is to take a trip through your garage and determine what, if anything, you no longer need. This is a great time to focus on de-cluttering. Our rule of thumb: if you haven’t used something in three years, is it really something you still need to keep?
Once you have identified what can go, we can create winning solutions for storing what has to stay. You can also decide whether or not there are items you currently store inside the house that you would rather store in the garage. How items are stored depends on what purpose your garage serves in your household. Some of the questions to ask yourself (we ask these questions of all our clients) include:
• Do you use your garage as a primary or secondary entrance to your home?
• Do you need to use an area of your garage as a mud room or entry way in which you can store coats, boots, and umbrellas?
• Do you access your garage daily to access a laundry area or office space?
• Are there hobbies you do or would like to do in the garage that would be easier to accomplish with a workbench or table space?
• Do you have bikes? How many? How often do you use them?
• Do you have children who play sports? How often do they access the garage and what kind of equipment do they need to have access to safely?
• Do you use your garage to store garbage cans and recycling bins?
• Do you have items you only need to store in the garage during the winter, like a picnic table or grill?
• Do you have hobbies that require special equipment like skis or golf clubs?
Thinking about these questions can help you create a customized storage space that turns your garage into a usable area. There are a variety of things we can help you find ways to store, including old magazines, extra toys, items designated for charity, seasonal items for holiday decorating, bulk food items, and cleaning supplies.
