5 Steps to an Organized Garage [INFOGRAPHIC]

Friday, October 13th, 2017

It’s October, time to put away the pool toys, lawnmower and propane tank and time to pull out the snow blower, shovels, and salt bin.

Throughout the summer, the garage tends to become the dumping ground for a variety of items, causing a cluttered, disorganized area.  Often it becomes so messy that your car no longer fits in its place.

With the leaves piling up outside and snow just around the corner, it’s time to clear the clutter, get organized, and get that car in the garage.

Step One – Sort and Purge

Go through each item in your garage, create piles to donate, trash and keep. Categorize the items based on the season you use them.

Step Two – Group Items to Keep

Organize the items you plan to keep into categories, small items that can fit into bins, large items that need shelves and even larger items that need floor space.  Determine which items fit together, i.e. sports equipment in a bin, summer tools on a shelf, and large power equipment on the floor.

Step Three – Call Garage Store Illinois

Call us for a free estimate to help you figure out how to organize and store the items you are keeping.  We can customize storage options that will work for each season.  Our overhead storage shelves can help free up floor space for large items.  We can also create a shelving area for boxes and bins.

Step Four – Schedule your Garage Makeover

Our team can come and get the shelves, wall units and storage cabinets assembled and set up in your garage.  We can create a space that works specifically for you and your family’s needs.  We carry a variety of shelves, bins, and overhead storage options that will get all your stuff put away neatly and so you can find it and access it easily.

Step Four – Put the Car Away

Once everything has its place and is in its place it’s time to pull in the car.  Now that your items are all organized you can put things away without creating more clutter and you can easily find other items you might need.

Step Five – Enjoy

Relax and enjoy your new space and no longer worry about the clutter in the garage.  Easily put away your Halloween décor this year and effortlessly find your Christmas décor. You no longer need to worry about cleaning the garage.

At Garage Store Illinois, our mission is to help people organize their space with quality products.  We design and install organization solutions and we provide concrete coating systems.

While our name is Garage Store, we go beyond just the garage.  Any area of your home, office or warehouse will benefit from being more organized.  Our epoxy coatings make concrete floors less dusty, healthier and much easier to clean.

In fact, your garage is just the beginning!

Classrooms/Instructional Centers

Classroom

When you think about it, classrooms get a lot of abuse.  There are dozens of students coming through on a daily basis.  When you have a room that needs organizing, but also needs to hold up to a lot of wear and tear Gladiator GarageWorks storage solutions may be the perfect option.  This classroom has a combination of Wall Gear Boxes and Modular Gear Drawers with Modular Maple Tops.  This option doesn’t just provide adequate storage; it also provides a heavy-duty workspace.

 

Basement Flooring

A customer in Plainfield, IL had a massive flood in her basement.  The basement was carpeted and the flood destroyed the carpet and padding.  After having it removed she wanted a flooring solution that would be durable, yet attractive.  Using our Epoxy, Polyurea and Polyaspartic Concrete Coating System, we provided a flooring option that is attractive and easy to clean – a great alternative to bare concrete, tile, carpet or laminate. The best part is it won’t pop up, peel, or have to be removed if the basement floods in the future.

 

Office Area

Office Gladiator

Offices (either at home or off-site) are areas that need work spaces and good storage options.  Modular Gear Boxes with a Modular Maple top are a versatile and useful option for this home office that will last a lifetime.

 

Laundry Room

Ask anyone who does the family’s laundry and they will tell you how important storage and a good workspace are for this usually neglected area.  Gladiator GarageWorks storage systems are versatile and functional, providing not only a place to fold laundry, but sturdy storage solutions that will make a trip to the laundry room a pleasure.

 

Patios/Porches

Creating a floor that will hold up to the elements – including motor oil, gasoline and winter salt – is what we do and it is a perfect solution for a garage. However, that same flooring system works for any outdoor concrete surface as well. Whether it is a patio, porch or driveway, our exterior coatings are a fantastic solution to cracked or pitted surfaces. The bonus is that our exterior concrete coatings will cost less than tearing out and re-pouring new concrete.
