A portable garage is a highly useful structure used to store vehicles and other vital items but often ends up being a dumping ground for non-essentials. Whether you have got a one-car portable garage or a two-car compact garage, there comes a time when you find it challenging to keep it organized and eventually turn it into a storeroom.
Many homeowners end up storing equipment like gardening tools, kids’ toys, and of course, cars, leaving very little space to move around. The increased quantities of clutter make it difficult to find the things one needs. If you’re also facing such problems, try upgrading your messy garage with the following techniques, which will help you organize your portable garage efficiently.
Use Bins For Storing Items In Your Portable Garage
Many homeowners utilize flexible storage options such as bins for storing essential equipment in their portable sheds and garages. First, separate your items based on their types and sizes, then classify them as garden tools, sports gear, home supplies, and cleaning items. This will help you understand how many plastic bins you require and the size of containers you need to buy.
Transparent bins make it easier to see things present in them without the need to open them. Opaque boxes will help you avoid showcasing the clutter present in them but make it challenging to find items when you need them. You can also buy heavy-duty containers for storing tools and other things that are heavy for increased support. Don’t forget to label all boxes carefully and place the most frequently used bins at the front.
Use Shelves And Hooks To Store Items On Your Garage Walls
Maximize your portable garage space by using wall-mounted racks and shelves. These shelvings will help you expand floor space, enhance visibility, and make floor washing easy to carry out. Using wall shelves is smart to organize items that you need more often, providing safe and quick access to your things without making a mess.
You can also install plywood on your garage walls and put hooks on them. This way, you can utilize these hooks for arranging your hardware equipment.
Use Corner Shelves In Your Portable Garage
Utilizing corner shelves is one of the most effective ways to make use of your portable garage corners. When it becomes difficult to extend vertical racks, you can install heavy-duty corner shelves in your garage for additional storage space. Using corner shelves, you can store small items such as oil, glue, wax, which are difficult to maintain.
Use Ceiling Storage In Your One-Car Portable Garage
If you’re using a one-car portable garage in your home, then this storage method for storing items is the best solution for you. This way, you can save a lot of space on your garage floor by making some valuable space in your garage ceiling. You can add loft space in the ceiling area that will allow you to store smaller items, tools, and equipment up and out of the way.
Add A Dedicated Toys Storage Area In Your Portable Garage
Kids’ toys, gears, and costumes occupy most of the garage space in an average home. To prevent cluttering, you can dedicate a section of a garage for keeping your children’s toys. You can also let your kids arrange their stuff by placing dedicated shelves at eye level to let them tidy up their toys. You can also paint these specialized toys’ sections in your garage with colored lines and drawings to add a fun twist.
