5 Brilliant Garage Organization Tricks

Just hearing the word "garage" can make some people cringe. They are so hard to keep clean and tidy! Check out our 5 brilliant garage organization tricks!

1. An easy way to organize small things (screws, bolts, nails, etc.) in your garage is to screw the lids of small, clear plastic containers to the bottom of shelf. Fill the containers with the little things you'd like to organize. You'll be able to easily see the things you need!

2. Place magnetic strips in your garage to easily organize different tools. Simply attach the strips to a tool bench or drawer and organize the tools along the strip!

3. Another idea for a tool (particularly screwdrivers) rack is to simply take a piece of wood and drill holes (as many as you need) along the board. From there, you can place the screwdrivers, handle up, in the board.

4. There are so many types of tape that you keep in your garage! To organize the different ones, make a small wooden box (preferable with wooden "walls" to keep them apart), attach a blade on one end of the box and there you have it…you own personal tape dispenser!

5. Don't forget about the old-fashioned (but always handy!) pegboard! You can arrange everything, from planters and foliage, to hammers, pliers, or even a broom and dustpan! Anything you can put up on the wall (and off the floor!) is a plus!

Hopefully, those garage organization tricks will help you keep your garage in order! For other fun tips and tricks like the ones above, follow our blog! And don't forget, Overhead Door is here for all your garage door needs…think of us first!

How To Use Your Garage This Christmas

Let's face it. We all wish we had more storage space! Especially during the holidays, when we are collecting new things (and don't always get rid of the old!) it is easy to say "where do I put this?!"

Why not use that garage of yours for extra space? Genius.

Your garage is a great space to store everything from holiday decorations to gardening supplies. However, that can make things a little crowded! First, take the time to organize your garage. The walls and ceiling are a great place to add hooks and nails to hang and store off the ground. Place your other garage items in color-coded bins. If you can't find enough colors, just be sure each bin is clearly labeled according to the contents inside.

While you're at it, why not clear out your closets and transfer what you can to the garage? By doing so, you are giving your guests a perfectly clean closet to stash their travel bags. Even if it's just temporarily, utilize the bin tip (above) or clear a corner of the garage specifically for temporary storage.

If the weather permits, your garage can be a great place to have Christmas dinner or New Years Eve party! By organizing your garage supplies and pulling out the cars, your garage can now become an extra room. Cover your storage areas with room dividers or curtains for a cleaner look. Add a long decorated table with chairs and some extra lighting to take it to the next level.

See? Your garage can be used for more than just parking your cars! If you have another idea you'd like to share, we'd love to hear it! Just comment below!
