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!  

garage organization system

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 is to have an adequate garage organization system in place, and to be decisive. 

You will want to have organizer systems to handle things like gardening equipment, bikes, and sports gear. A well designed garage organization system 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 that will save time in the future by allowing you to find items quickly!

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

home office storage solutions

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

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.


To start the process of customizing your own home office organization system, browse our home office storage solutions section for ideas and inspiration. Then set up an appointment for a free in-home consultation with a member of our Chicago space saving design team. Or you can call us toll free at 800-4-CLOSET if you'd like to personally discuss your home office storage needs with one of our specialists.
