Organize Your Garage for Maximum Usage
Did you know…
- 55% of Americans spend 1-2 hours each week in the garage doing hobbies and other activities. (Impulse Research survey)
- 89% of homeowners say they’re dissatisfied with their garage and would want to improve it (Wall Street Journal survey)
- 50% of homeowners named the garage the most disorganized area of their home (National Association of Professional Organizers survey)
- - A home organization study done by Moen (North America’s top faucet brand) found that the garage was the most cluttered space in homes.**
Whether these statistics are surprising to you or not, what they tell us is that our garages could be sources of great usefulness…but only when organized well. PremierGarage of Greater Washington DC has customized thousands of our clients’ garages for over 15 years, and our team has the experience and knowledge to maximize space for any size garage. Here are some of the best solutions that our designers provide our clients to allow them to use their garage to the best of its size and ability:
Slatwalls and Hooks for More Vertical Storage
Using vertical space effectively is a massive “win” for garage organization. PremierGarage proposes slatwalls to our clients when updating their garages, as it’s incredibly useful for hanging tools, paper towels, holders for nuts and bolts, etc. – the list goes on and on. What’s most useful is that the hooks on the walls are interchangeable and moveable, so, as your interests ebb and flow, so can the slatwall organization. Hooks can include universal hooks or more specific hooks for tools and other utilities, for example.
Not only is slatwall a great addition to a garage organization project, so are the other vertical storage options that we offer, including wall-mounted bike racks to free up floor space and overhead motorized and manual racks to store bins and totes with seasonal items.
Custom Cabinetry for Household Goods, Sports Equipment, Tools and More
Our designers are able to custom design cabinetry for our clients based on their wants and needs. Some clients want space for storing non-perishable goods for their family (paper towels, cleaning products, etc.) while others prefer a large space to keep their tools and garden equipment. We also offer deep baskets for storage as well as soft close drawers with interior organizational systems. Whatever the case may be, our designers work one on one with clients to develop plans that give them the storage that suits them best.
Other clients spend more time in their garage doing hands-on work, so designing a custom countertop is also an option that many choose. Workbenches fall into this category as well.
Epoxy Flooring for the Finish
While not necessarily an organization focus, installing a beautiful epoxy flooring means you’ll want to store items that were previously on the floor somewhere else! Epoxy flooring is extremely durable, easy to clean, and, importantly, very safe and long-lasting. When creating the garage of their dreams, our clients see the benefit of a finishing flourish of a full epoxy flake floor.
It’s likely time to stop being a statistic – take the first step towards the beautiful garage that you’ll be proud to show off to your neighbors. Whatever you use your garage for (besides where you park your car!), PremierGarage is ready to partner with you to make those dreams come true.
