Space-saving ideas for your garage space

If your garage could do with some serious TLC and looks like a bomb has hit it then these following tips might help. Getting organised doesn’t have to be a massive chore as a few straightforward adjustments can improve the size of the space available and make it a whole lot easier to find things straight away.

  • Get all those small items off the floor and use a slat wall or a pegboard to hang and organize smaller accessories. You can add as many hooks and baskets as you need.
  • Once you’ve hung all your tools exactly where you want them to live, get a marker pen and draw an outline of them on the back board. That way, if anyone uses your tools, they have no excuse if they hang them back in the wrong place.
