Summer is almost over, and the kids are heading back to school. Are you finding clutter every time you walk in your garage? If pool floats, sporting equipment, water toys, and other summer gear are cluttering your space, it’s time to get organized! Proper storage for summer toys will give you much-needed space and help ensure that toys and gear are in good shape and ready to go for next summer. Here are some tips to get your garage in tip-top shape and ready for the next season of fun.
Organize Your Garage with Proper Storage of Summer Toys
- Organize – To determine your garage storage needs, first consider what you are storing. Certain items may be better suited to certain areas of your home. For example, items like swimsuits and swim trunks are better suited to your closet. Beach toys should be kept near the garage door. This way, kids can easily grab their beach bag before heading out. In addition, items for kids should be kept at lower levels so they can easily access them, whereas items such as pool chemicals should be kept on higher shelves out of reach.
- Custom Shelving – Consider built-in custom shelving in your garage to keep summer toys organized and out of the way until you need them next year. Adding customized options like sports racks, storage bins, and hooks work wonders to control garage clutter and make things easy to find. Shelves offer tons of additional storage and can be stacked to the ceiling with summer items and holiday decor.
- Storage Cabinets – Some things are just better kept out of sight! A local reputable home storage system company like Closet & Storage Concepts can work with you to help you design a garage storage system that fits your needs. Having items stored in custom storage cabinets in your garage keeps you organized, and your garage will look less cluttered and bigger! Cabinets are ideal for gardening items like soil and other hobbies and crafting supplies, or even outdoor cushions and decor.
- Work Benches – Adding a workbench with drawers and/or cabinets to your garage offers an additional place to store summer items and it also gives you a great place to work on projects in any season!
