Clean, organized spaces are better for your peace of mind and focus, according to researchers at Princeton. The more cluttered the area, the tougher it is for you to process information. When you think of the most disorganized location in your home, what do you picture?
For many people, it’s the garage. Built to shelter one or two or three cars, garages often get filled to the brim with the detritus of our daily living. How many times have you said, “Oh, just put that in the garage?”
According to a Consumer Reports poll, nearly a third of us no longer park our cars in the garage. Why? There’s simply no room.
Bench Solution is an easy and affordable way to declutter your garage. Not only do we help you organize your life, we’ll help you make room for your cars again.
Whether you use our slat wall system, workbench, or any of our other organizational products, we’ve got the perfect solutions to help.
One great way to begin transforming your garage is to think in terms of zones. If you’re smart and take your time, you’ll be amazed at all the space you’ll discover in your garage. Consider how often you use items and their ease of access. You can define areas based on your own needs, but we’ll suggest a couple to get you started.
The In and Out or Transition Zone
This is the area you pass as you’re racing out the door in the morning or arriving home after a long day at work. This zone might include backpacks, hats, jackets, and shoes. You want to be able to grab and go as you leave or hang up before you enter the house. Use our IdealWall solution. Our slat wall, hooks, and baskets are an easy way to keep things up off the ground and in their proper place.
Whether you’re a carpenter or an artisan, our bench solution is just the ticket. Hang your tools of the trade on the slat wall and you’ve got an instant workspace. When not in use, the bench folds down toward the wall, providing plenty of room to park or pass.
Lawn and Garden Central
Organize rakes, shovels, hoes, brooms, and clippers using our sturdy and versatile Ideal Wall product. You’ll appreciate our wide variety of hooks and baskets for hanging these items. And the more space you free up on the garage floor, the more space you’ll have for bulkier items, like your lawnmower.
Sports and Recreation Area
Have you ever struggled to find your golf clubs, soccer balls, tennis racquets, or fishing gear? We all have … particularly in a messy garage. But by designating one zone for these items, you’ll have everything in the same space. Utilizing our slat wall solutions, you pick the hooks and hanging baskets that make the most sense for your needs. Simple. Easy. Convenient.
Long Term Storage
This zone is perfect for seasonal items you may only use once or twice a year. You can organize this area in a high out-of-the-way section of your garage. Out of sight; out of mind. Wreaths, holiday decorations, croquet sets, camping gear, and off-season clothing are just a few of the items you may wish to stow here.
We hope some of these suggestions are helpful as you organize and create efficient zones in your own garage. Call Bench Solution or fill out our contact form today. We’ll be happy to answer all your questions and provide just the help you need.
