Give Dad the Gift of an Organized Garage

 

This Father’s Day, give dad space for a workbench, fishing gear, sports equipment, lawn equipment, and more!

Before getting started, consider the functions of your garage. There are hundreds of different uses for a garage, and most of the time protecting your cars from the elements is not one of them.

Here is a list to help guide you into categorizing the functions of your garage:

  • Space for parking cars

  • Bikes and kids’ toys

  • Automotive care/car washing

  • Tools/workbench/hardware

  • Pet care

  • Trash and recycling

  • Camping gear

  • Swimming gear or pool toys

  • Lawn furniture/spectator chairs

  • Gardening and lawn care equipment and supplies

  • Sports equipment/golf/fishing gear

  • Seasonal storage (holiday decorations and memorabilia)

  • Permanent storage (tax records, spare furniture)

Once you have a better idea of what you are organizing for, you can get started organizing. The key to organizing a garage is to have adequate organizational systems in place, and to be decisive. 

You will want to have organizer systems to handle things like gardening equipment, bikes, and sports gear. Organizers can make a huge difference in keeping your garage organized longer.

Garage Solution2

While sorting through your garage clutter, you will want to make quick decisions about what you are keeping and placing in an organizational system and what you are tossing. Garages tend to be storeage dumps for items that you have delayed making decisions on over the year. By going through the clutter as quickly and confidently as possible you will see fast and long lasting results!

Closet Works Organization Solutions #3 - Home Office Storage Solution

 

In the final piece of our three part Organization Solutions series we take a look at a Closet Works home office custom design solution.

 

The Challenge

organization solutions office vertical 1

The Closet Works Design team was approached to design a custom office/storage solution in a very tight space. The client wanted plenty of storage, but also wanted enough desk space for two desktop computers. There was also a large window to work around.  

 

The Solution

organization solutions office vertical 2

With such a small space it was important for the Closet Works Design team to leave no space left untouched. They added the storage and desk requirements, and even added shelving over the window. Six drawers were also added for extra hidden storage.

Then set up an appointment for a free in-home consultation with a member of our Chicago space saving design team.

The Challenge

The client came to Closet Works asking for a storage shelving/solution that will fit a fireplace and have space for a flat screen TV, while still having plenty of extra display shelving and other forms of storage. 

 

The Solution

The Closet Works design team came up with a creative solution which incorporated twelve small display shelves, two large openings for displaying bigger pieces, one doored cabinet, and three drawers for added storage space.

Closet Works Organization Solutions #1 - Bedroom

 

In the first of our 3 part series, Organization Solutions, we take a close look at a completed Closet Works bedroom design solution. 

The Challenge

Organization Solutions Bedroom (1)

The Closet Works Design team was approached with a full bedroom storage project. Some requirements were space for a desk and plenty of storage. Also, with a bed put in the middle, some of the system had to be suspended so the rail is not visable behind the headboard.

 

The Solution

Organization Solutions Bedroom (1)1

The solution here is a bright and organized bedroom space! Frosted glass was added to give the room a more open feel and so the system wouldn't look too heavy. There was also plenty of drawers and shelving added for extra storage. The drawers actually look like end tables!
