Cleaning out your garage and getting rid of things you no longer need is only the first step. The real fun is choosing how to use Orlando home organization ideas to make this space more efficient. Once everything is organized, you’ll find it a cinch to keep your garage neat and clean year-round.

Separate Items into Piles

The first thing you should do is separate the items you want to keep from those you want to discard. Carefully consider why you want to keep certain things. Ask yourself if these items are going to be used within the next year. Some items may have sentimental value, and you should make a separate pile for those things. Any items that are not of value in any way, shape, or form should be tossed or given away.

Making Decisions About Organization

You’ve got your keep, and sentimental piles all sorted out. Now it’s time to decide how you want to organize these items. Since the floor of your garage has a limited amount of space, you should consider ways to expand storage capacity. Cabinets are a natural remedy to garage storage woes. Modern storage cabinets such as the Gladiator Premier Series, are built to withstand various temperature conditions of your garage. The great thing about these types of cabinets is that they come in a variety of sizes and configurations, and provide quick and easy access to stored items.

There’s a lot of flexibility in how cabinets are arranged, and the sky’s the limit when it comes to cabinet placement.

Large Storage Cabinet Ideas

Large storage cabinets are like mini closets. You can fit a lot of similar items into a tall two-door cabinet, making them easy to find in one place. Big cabinets typically have one fixed shelf and one or more adjustable shelves for versatility. These are ideal for storing sentimental items, extra clothing, recreational, sports, and exercise gear.

Small Storage Cabinet Ideas

Small items tend to take up gobs of garage space, and get scattered about, creating clutter. Ideally, these things should be hidden from view when not in use. Solve your clutter problem by storing these items in a small floor and wall cabinet. If you care about style and function, the Everest white cabinet series may be just what your garage needs. Storage ideas for these cabinets include arts and crafts supplies, paint supplies, canned food goods, and small tools.
