Ways To Revamp Your Garage For Summer


Garages aren't just for storing and keeping your car safe, they can be used in a multitude of different ways. We are notorious for using ours as a storage hub, so much so that long gone are the days that we can actually fit out car in there! Honestly, walking into it you'd think you were on an episode of hoarders! Whenever we aren't sure about getting rid of something we tend to pop it into the garage for safe keeping until we know what to do with it. Then, of course, we forget all about it and years later the item is still sat there, gathering dust!


This Summer we decided that we can no longer ignore the garage and the mess that we've created, it was time to roll up our sleeves and sort it. Here are 5 ways we are revamping our garage for summer.

Clear out
First things first, we are going to get in there and recycle or throw away everything that is on it's "last legs" and that we've not used in a couple of years. I think this will free up the majority of the space in there and make the revamping process a lot easier.

Donate
Items which have life left in them I plan to donate to local charities such as the RSPCA and Pendleside Hospice. Every couple of months we tend to do this around the house so it's about time that we did the same in the garage too.

Organise
Another way to inject some order into the garage, once everything is streamlined is to organise the garage in a more functional way. Before we started using the garage as a storage space we didn't really have set places for items and just placed things where they fit. Car equipment was here there and everywhere, which was a nightmare when it came to trying to find something in particular.

Create a space
We are hoping that by having a clear out, donating and by organising the garage that we'll free up enough room to create a little man cave area for Nick. Being a Dad to two young children, he doesn't get much time to play his guitar anymore and I think that having his own space to jam out will be great for him. It would also mean my ears would get a break from the noise too! 

Do you have any tips that you'd like to share with me?

  2. Seems that in reality a garage gets used in various ways. Some do park and store the./ a car in the garage. Whilst others store a variety of items in the garage:- Parts for the car, tools, bargains, etc.

    Some American tv programmes show the inside of some garages, and some have great shelving systems. Allowing for well organised storage.

  3. Another option for the garage is a garage conversion. Have come across properties where that has been done. Some having been converted to a bedroom, another option being dining room. Maybe Nick will have a Music room. Best Wishes!

  6. Garage Sale :- To clear out unwanted items. Maybe put proceeds to Charity. There are many charities in need of donations:- financial and goods, etc. Donate to Community e.g. Local Charity e.g. Hospice, etc. Fund bench for local play park. So many options.
