Most people like to keep their house in order, but if you want to show people your garage, you may find that you get rather embarrassed. You may not keep it as well organised as the house and although no one would expect it to be as clean and tidy as the rooms in the house, it should not be a place of embarrassment either.
You may have a selection of random items in the garage and this could make it look messy. There may be sports equipment, a spare ES12-BS battery, tools, gardening equipment, weights and gym things and even boxed up items from the house.
It is worth considering how you could make this random assortment of things look more organised. It can also be a lot easier to find things when you need them, if everything is in its own place or at least put away in an organised manner. Storage is probably the key thing here.
Consider whether you want open shelving, which will mean that everyone can see your things or whether you want cupboards, which will hide away your dumbbells, screwdrivers and ES12-BS powersport battery, but will make it more difficult for you to find things when you want them. You could help by labelling the cupboard doors and keeping them shut to keep the dirt and dust away from your things.
It is worth imagining what the room may look like if everything is put away. It should keep the floor a lot tidier and mean that you will find things more easily, as long as they are sorted in to a sensible order. You do not have to have the most expensive cupboards either, anything that will just keep things looking tidy. You will impress your friends if it looks neat, they will not expect it to be designer.
If you wanted to keep costs down, you could even have a go at building the cupboards yourself or buying some flat pack ones and building then yourself. A great project for rainy days and a way to save money and keep things in order.
Once you have the cupboards in, then you will be able to always keep everything put away neatly. It will not only keep things looking good, but also may discourage you from dumping things in the garage. You will want to have them put away neatly or maybe just thrown away. It may stop things accumulating in there which should really be sorted and thrown out!
