A garage does not have to be a miniature recycling center. Instead, it can be an inspiring addition to the home where work or hobbies are performed.
Believe it or not
The Chinese art and science of feng shui are based on the theory of balancing the energies in a certain space can help to claim the wealth and health of those living there. Whether you are believers or not, there is something to say to apply the basics of this system to your garage. A good spring cleaning can not only maximize your garage storage but also turn the space into an environment that fits a number of other activities.
A clean start
The most effective way to see how much space you do not use effectively is to give your garage a much needed clearing-out. Although this may require some effort, the positive paths are offset negatively.
To begin with, you must prepare basic storage systems. It means finding some storage box or storage that you can have and give them a thorough cleaning. Not only will it inspire you to clean or repair everything you put in them, it also helps protect your items from damage such as rust or dyeing. Once you have cleaned your storage space, direct them out of your garage, given that there is always the possibility that you may need to buy more.
The next step is perhaps the most difficult, but also the most liberating. Garages often become containers for household storage, which acts as last resting place for items that have seen better days. If possible, assemble all your items in the middle of the garage and start sorting through them. You should have three categories in mind for each item - keep, repair or bin or in our more environmentally conscious times, reuse, repair and recycle. As a guideline to help you make your decision, consider how much you have needed or used the item in the past year. If the answer is small or nothing, the object should be discarded or recovered. Items that need to be repaired should put in a container marked For repair. Characters like these often inspire us to perform everyday tasks when we have a little else to do. The items that you know that you need or absolutely can not be without should be placed in the containers that you previously cleaned. There is no need to mark them yet You will develop your own archive system according to yours and can mark them later. The key here, however, is to be reckless. If you do not need it, do not keep it.
Once you have saved the items you hold, its time to look at the space yourself. It is really worth clearing spider web and dirt, but it may also be worth applying a snail of color. Consider the space in the same way as you can consider any room in the house. What do I want to use this room for and how can I get the correct effect? Now its time to consider storage systems, whether its mobile storage sleeves, tool storage devices or any of the storage systems that are available. Keep in mind the space on the wall and on the roof. If used, you only get more space and easier access to essential things.
Fill the space
Once youve implemented all the storage systems on your list, you can start reorganizing your space. However, leave your Repair items in the container. Once you have found new homes for all your other items, you can discover that you are inspired to further develop your home organization and start the necessary repairs. Once youve done that, these items can be moved back to the house or installed in their rightful places, giving you even more space to play with.
