If you’re reading this right now as you look at a messy garage, you might be wondering how on earth you’re going to even begin to clean everything up. Should you put all the items in your garage in boxes? In bins? In cabinets? And how do you decide what goes with what. Both fortunately and unfortunately, there is not a one size fits all approach to garage organization. This post will help you understand a little about the different organization systems and how they can work for you.
When they think about organizing their garages, many people immediately think of big plastic bins. If they’re fixed with a label and stacked, you might wonder how you could go wrong with this organizational method. While plastic bins make great storage tools in some cases, they’re not for every storage need. Plastic bins are best used for items that don’t see the light of day very often. For example, they work well for holiday decorations , old clothes, and heirlooms. If other items are stored in plastic bins, they can be very difficult to get out and use on a regular basis.
Shelves and Cloth or Plastic Boxes
Another popular garage organization tool is the shelf and plastic bin or box. These are great choices for items that must be easily accessed, especially by children. Additionally, the method works well for individuals with many small, similar items that must be stored together. However, if you have things you don’t want kids to access, or if you prefer that your items be easily accessible but hidden from view, this might not be the best option.
Cabinets offer you the ability to access your items easily while still locking them up and hiding them from view. This is a good choice for the person who has children but does not want them to have access to the items stored in the cabinets. It also ensures that everything stays where it is placed, out of the weather and away from prying eyes. This is a great choice for crafters and woodworkers who may need to stash parts or tools.
There are many different types of garage organization tools and methods. Each is beneficial for different people and their needs. Call White Rabbit today, and we can help you choose the method that’s right for you.
