Summer is here and that means only one thing: Outdoor parties with family and friends! Many of you will be using your garage space to host guests. This is an excellent idea, as the garage is the perfect space for keeping you, your guests, and your refreshments cool and safe from the hot summer conditions. Before getting started transforming your garage into a place you can use for entertaining friends, consider the following tips:
1. Store and organize the loose things inside your garage
By organizing, and putting away the clutter in your garage you are keeping items safe and easy to access after parties. A garage organization system with a slat wall can be a huge help in keeping brooms, tools, and other equipment in their place. Consider using your backyard or other areas of your home as extra temporary storage space.
2. Remove all chemical products and other dangerous materials
Make sure that safety for your guests is your number one priority. You don’t want anyone, especially kids, to accidentally harm themselves from equipment, tools, or other chemicals not properly put away.
3. Create a walkway or clear path in your garage area
By creating a space to maneuver while hosting in your garage you will avoid problems with moving furniture and other difficult equipment. A storage organizer is the perfect solution to creating instant space in your garage. For garage storage organizer ideas, click here.
4. Decorate your garage with plants, flowers, and themed party decor (especially on July 4th!).
Spend some time decorating your garage to make it feel homier and more comfortable for your guests. Choosing bright summery colors will go a long way in setting a positive tone for your party.
5. Consider keeping extra food and appetizers in your kitchen pantry
Having an organized kitchen pantry will make the process of grabbing extra food and refreshment refills easier and less time consuming. This will give you more time to spend with your guests. For kitchen pantry organization ideas, click here.
