Are You Getting Your Garage In Shape?

by Sheila Berry

Are you downright embarrassed for friends and extended family members to even see your garage? Perhaps you'd like to blame the mess in your garage on your kids, because they leave sports equipment on the ground of your garage. Or, it might be that your spouse has decided the garage is actually a storage area, with things like boxes of holiday decorations stacked on the ground. Or, you might look at the garage and realize that, unfortunately, it is you yourself who has created a mess in your garage. No matter whose fault it is that your garage has become an eyesore, from organizing the items in your garage to arranging for garage door repair services, here are some ideas that might help you to get your garage in shape.

Residential Garage Door Repair Services 

Consider starting with your garage door. It might be that the mechanism that opens and closes your garage door has not worked correctly for quite some time, making it necessary for you to manually do the job. If that's the case, or for whatever reason that your garage door isn't functioning properly, consider getting professionals to make the repairs that are needed to get your garage door back into full working order. While you're at it, consider buying a lock that allows people to enter the garage only if they have the code that is needed to give access to the garage, and thus to your house. Garage door repair services are probably more affordable than you thought they would be. And, when your garage door is back to full working order, you'll more than likely feel like the expense was worth every penny you spent.

Organize The Items In Your Garage 

If you have come to the realization that the garage is actually the only place your kids can keep things like bicycles and other sport equipment, consider buying bike racks and shelving that will hold your kid's belongings. The same goes for holiday decorations and other items that are currently being stored in the garage. Consider organizing things like the holiday decorations. For example, buy transparent plastic containers with different colored lids on them. The green lids might be for Christmas items, orange lids for Halloween items, pink lids for Easter decorations, and so on. Consider selecting one morning each week, probably a Saturday morning, where you and each family member can tidy up the garage so you can maintain the order you have created.
