The better weather is well and truly on its way, with the evenings beginning to draw out and a sense of optimism about the arrival of spring. With the disappearance of winter comes the opportunity for that all-important spring clean, and top on many to-do lists is the task of redecorating and reorganising your garage. Whether you have a lean-to garage, apex, garden room or workshop, there are a number of clever ways you can get the most out of your garage and utilise your space.
Do you love nothing more than a spot of DIY, and is your garage space taken up by loose hammers, spanners and nails?
Constructing handy and convenient slides keep your tools safely tucked away but easily accessible for when you need them.
Forget sticky notes and marker pens; see exactly what is located behind each cupboard and in each drawer by using chalkboard paint. For a smart storage solution, simply mark items on cupboard and drawer fronts in chalk. This helps you locate items quickly and saves you from trawling through endless drawers, containers and cupboards searching for a missing item.

Chalk is also perfect when it comes to moving items around: simply wipe the cupboard front down and add your new item. It couldn’t be simpler.
Using Garage Walls
Utilising all available space is imperative to get the most out of your garage, including the walls. Shelving, hooks, baskets and cupboards mean plenty of opportunities to make the most of your garage.
Why not invest in shelf stacks which can be bolted between panels to utilise your space?
It may sound simple, but labels are superb items to have to hand and help keep your garage clutter-free and organised. Whether it’s folders or old school books, garden equipment or classic Christmas decorations, placing these items in boxes and labelling these clearly prevents you from having to sift through countless items and can help you locate what you need without wasting too much time.
A garage can easily become a place to throw things away and forget about them. Prevent this from happening to your garage and unlock a host of exciting opportunities for your space.
