Garage Organization

Garage Organization
Is your garage a mess? Can you park your car in it, or is it solely for storage these days? Here are a few helpful ideas from us here at Corken + Company on how to organize your garage.


Go Vertical:

Keep brooms, mops and dustpans off the floor and out of the way by crafting a handy organizer out of scrap wood and pipe straps. Hung on the wall, this cleaning tool holder takes up much less space than a traditional storage bin.

Chic Screwdriver Rack:

Keep screwdrivers stylishly organized and in reach by dipping the ends in plastic coating and displaying on this DIY storage rack.


Hide the Mess:

Cabinets are game-changers when positioned around a garage workspace. Having tools and supplies within reach during projects maximizes efficiency while keeping the mess stored away and out of sight. Drawers below are ideal for corraling garage clutter.

Get Creative:

Storing garden hoses on a garage floor can quickly clutter the space and set you up for accidents. Instead, wrap them around metal tubs attached to the wall for a solution that’s simple, effective and attractive. Use smaller metal buckets in the same way to store extension cords.


Rolling Storage Shelves:

Keeping a garage organized might be easier than it seems. It just takes a little discipline and, most importantly, the right shelves. These DIY rolling shelf units are the storage solution you’ve been looking for at a fraction of the cost of retail options.


Contained Chaos:

Coffee to the rescue! Stop fighting with tangled twine and rope and store them in a coffee can instead. Cut a slit in the top of the can, and put your rope inside. Pull the end through the top for an easy dispenser.


Parking Spaces:

Remove the bottom section of a shelving unit to store lawnmowers or wheelbarrows to keep them conveniently tucked away and out of your path. This strategy works great for kids’ tricycles and wagons, too.


Having a nice organized space when you arrive at home helps create a calming environment for everyone. Use these tips and tricks to declutter your garage and create a welcoming space again! Corken + Company is here to help with recommendations for organizing and staging teams. It’s important when you sell your home, or just on your day to day, that you have a clean home, no matter the room!
