It is usual for homes to have garages because most homeowners have their own cars. But garages have been more than car ports now; they have become hoarding and storage places for everything and anything. They even double as laundry and work rooms.
Now, some of you may think that it is time to stop all the messy madness and start to clean and organize everything. That is indeed an awesome idea! But then, how and where do we start this project?
For your garage to look great and clean, of course there are more ways than one. First and foremost, you have to assess the whole situation. You have to examine your garage, whether you have a big or a small area, how unorganized is it, how far are you willing to go for this undertaking. After that, you have to plan on what you are to do with your space. To park your automobile is one thing, but how about the remaining spaces? When you have already determined the purpose of your garage (again, aside from being a car park), then designing and/or renovating would be easier because you have a plot in mind.
But before you proceed in executing your plans, you must deal with the existing garage clutter. Look into them – an effective way to manage your things would be to classify them into three categories: Keep, Donate or Sell, and Throw Away. You have to be thorough and practical. Learn to let go of the stuff that you do not really need and just occupies space. And there is the renowned garage sale, right? Obviously, its intent is to clear the garage of the unnecessary and even make money out of it.
A major investment you should make is for garage flooring. Since the floor is basically the whole space, much attention should be given to it. The AxleTile range of garage floor tiles are of high quality and come with different colors and styles. Whatever your overall concept for your garage is, there is no doubt one of them will be suitable and perfect. With good garage flooring, you will be able to protect your floor from damage and chemicals that can be emitted by your car. It can make the place safer for you as well because the even floor will save you from any accident like falls or stumbles.
Painting the walls a new coat is recommended as well. Be sure to purchase washable paints so that they are easy to clean and maintain. For dirt to not be very visible, you can make use of dark colors if you prefer to.
The garage can function as a storage area, even if you admit it or not, so you must wisely use the space. Create a layout of the position and arrangement of everything you will put inside. There are even ready-made storage cabinets and containers that you can buy in hardware stores. Moreover, you can label them for easy search and identification.
It is your sole responsibility and duty to do what it takes if you want a good-looking and spotless garage.
