The organization of the garage requires careful planning and preparation in order to be successful. With so many options available to us today, it can become confusing trying to determine which type of organization system would work best in the area you have to work with. While the type of organization system is up to the person, below are some pointers to help you avoid some common mistakes.
Measure and measure again
Often times we see a system we would love to have in our garage. We are very quick to measure the length of the walls, the height of the ceilings and take special note of any windows, electrical plugs and doors that may be present. However, we often times don't take into consideration the space our car takes up in the garage. While this may not be an issue in a larger garage, it is crucial when you have limited space to work with.
To help eliminate this problem, remove everything from your garage. If not everything, at least one side of the garage allowing you to pull the largest car you own in and park it as you would normally. Follow this by closing the garage door to make sure you have allowed ample space to walk around the back.
Now, take your handy dandy pencil and paper out and measure again. Only this time, you will want to measure the distance from the car to the wall. Keep in mind that extra room will be needed to allow for the door to be opened. If you are planning on installing ceiling storage, measure from the top of the car to the bottom of the garage roof. This will give you exact measurements on the system you can purchase.
With these measurements in hand you are ready to embark on your mission to get your garage organized. I would suggest starting your project by utilizing the internet for ideas, deals and viewing the wide variety of garage organization systems on the market today.
