The American garage is truly a multipurpose space. Part workshop, part storage unit and part garage there are so many demands put on this space there’s no wonder it can get out of control in a hurry.
Easy Closets takes a strategic view by breaking the typical garage into six zones – 1) Transition, 2) Need It Now, 3) Long Tall Thin Storage, 4) Large Item Storage, 5) Frequently Used Items, 6) Workspace.
One brilliant idea that struck me this past weekend – why am I putting heavy tubs filled with seasonal decorations up in the rafters? Instead I cleared out the camping gear shelves, stowed the tubs on the shelves and put the lightweight sleeping bags and air mattresses up in the loft.
