Garage organisation tips


The garage is a space that is very easily viewed as a dumping ground by many people across the UK and it needs to change. Your garage is a vital room in your house that can be utilised and benefited from. With a little bit of organisation, your garage can be transformed from an untidy mess to a multi-functional, organisational hub.

If this sounds appealing, be sure to take on board our simple tips below and make the most out of your garage.


It’s important that you keep functionality in mind when you’re planning the layout of your garage, especially if you’re starting from scratch. A couple of key questions to keep in mind are – is there enough room to move about once your vehicles are inside? Are there enough power and water sources?

But if you’re simply updating your current garage, a clear-out is essential. Make separate piles of keep, sell and donate, and be ruthless with your sell and donate pile – if you haven’t used it in a year, it shouldn’t be in your keep pile.

Store upwards

Once your car is parked inside your garage, it leaves minimal space for storage, so be sure to make the most out of the space you’ve got. Ditch the bulky cabinets and think vertical – invest in shelving and hooks that will free up floor space whilst maximising your storage.

Be smart

Invest in storage systems that make the most out of your garage’s free space. For example, you may have a roller garage door and therefore have free space above your head. If this is the case, invest in ceiling racks and boxes – a great way to store items that aren’t regularly used such as camping equipment.

We hope these tips will help you organise and enjoy your garage, and get the most out of this valuable storage facility. For more useful advice about garage maintenance, consult our garage experts here at Huddersfield Garage Doors - give us a call on 01484 829 612 or contact us online.
