Take a look!

Emails

Hello Veronica

I'm an avid reader of your blog.  I'd like to know what suggestions you have on how to arrange my garage.

Thanks

 Hi Nneka,

Thanks for your email. The garage is an integral part of the house just like any other room.  It is important to carry it along when doing your home decor as it also doubles as a storage space.
There are quite a few ways to deal with clutter and create more storage space.

A note of warning though. Your garage should not be used to house junk!  If you don't need it, get rid of it! 

Wall Shelving

Wall shelving is provides a good way to keep things organized and in view. Remember to keep the most useful objects at the hand’s reach.


Organization

If you have a lot of things to house in your garage but at the same time you really long for a clean neat look invest in an organization system with doors and shelves and maybe drawers that will keep the garage looking clutter-free and give it a clean crisp look.






Bike Racks

Bike racks can be fixed to the walls or the ceiling thus saving the space in the garage.

Good luck!
