Instead of creating a list of crazy new year’s resolutions that are impossible to accomplish, why not make a few that are more attainable and benefit both you and your home? Your garage is often a cluttered space that stores anything from cars and bikes to holiday décor, old furniture, and anything else that doesn’t fit in your home. This year, it’s time to reorganize and revamp your garage to make it a desirable storage space all year round. Absolute Garage Builders, the Chicagoland garage builders, have come up with a few easy things you can do.
Declutter, Organize, & Clean
More often than not, the junk that you don’t want in your home ends up in your garage, just to sit there, take up space, and collect dust. The first thing you should do to declutter you garage is get rid of all of the junk and miscellaneous items in your garage that you no longer need or use. You can donate the things in condition and toss the rest. After you have decluttered, it’s time to reorganize. If you need more storage space, consider adding some wall shelves or creating storage bins that can attach to the ceiling. Both of these solutions will help you keep everything off the garage floor. Once you have reorganized, give your garage a good clean. Sweep and wash the floors and wipe down all items to get rid of any dust. Your garage will feel brand new.
Replace The Garage Door Opener
If your garage door opener doesn’t work as well as it used to and the buttons stick, replace it! This is a quick and easy fix that will make opening and closing your garage less of a hassle.
Paint The Garage Door
New year, new color! If the exterior paint on your garage door is chipping, fading, or just isn’t the right color anymore, consider repainting it! This will not only improve the look of your garage but it will add value to the look of the entire home as well.
