Tips, Tricks, And Products For Your Storage Shed Or Garage

How to Manage the Clutter, Define the Space, and Maintain Your Storage Shed or Garage with Intentional Organizing Practices

When homeowners decide to tackle cleaning or organizing in their homes, the garage is one of the last places to be touched; the space is typically out of sight, out of mind. If the garage is used for storage, it is not a place people go to spend time. However, some people need to access their garage more than the average person–those with mancaves, at-home workshops, or similar spaces. 

Tips, Tricks, and Products for Your Storage Shed or Garage

Whatever the case, we’ll help you manage the clutter, define the space, and practice intentional home organizing. 

Define the Primary Purpose of Your Space

Not everyone uses their garage or storage shed in the same way. Many people use it as an area to keep their overflow storage bins or outdoor gear and landscaping equipment. In other homes, people use their space as an extension of their home. Some homeowners may even use it as storage and an additional home extension. 

No matter how you choose to use the space, getting it organized and tidy will make it an efficient space for storage or fun.

Storage Only

Homeowners that use the garage or storage shed as a storage-only space can easily begin burdening themselves. You may find yourself saving every little thing or shoving overflow storage bins and items into these areas. They can quickly become a clutter catastrophe. 

Tips, Tricks, and Products for Your Storage Shed or Garage

By taking time to organize or hire a Denver professional organizer, you can get that storage space in check and zone out your areas with intentional space-saving storage methods.

Home Extension Only

Maybe you have a small home, or you have a profession that requires you to have additional square footage as a workspace. Creating a home workshop, woodworking space, gardening space, or art studio are just a few examples of how you can use your garage or storage shed as a home extension vs a storage space.

If you use this space for a hobby or profession, you must implement systems that keep it decluttered and designed for productivity.

Storage & Home Extension

The combination of storage and home extension sounds like a lot for one space, but it is possible to optimize the space for both. Garages and sheds are used to store seasonal decor, outdoor items, overflow, and vehicles. 

You may need space for your hobby/business and look to the garage or shed as the perfect alternative. To utilize this space for storage and as an additional room, we’ve compiled some amazing products to prioritize efficient organization.

Storage Shed & Garage Organizing Products We LOVE!

There are a ton of super helpful organizing products that can take your garage or storage shed to the next level. From budget-friendly to luxurious, your garage can easily be a space that feels just as functional as the next area in your home.

This budget-friendly option for the DIYers out there is hands-down our top pick!

Clear, Weathertight Storage Bins

There are many options on the market for storage bins in your home. At Organized by Keli & Co, we typically direct clients towards clear, plastic, weathertight storage bins. Why do we like the clear ones? You can easily see everything inside the bin, making it a breeze to find what you need when you need it. 

These weathertight storage bins are a favorite of ours from Amazon! They come in varying sizes and stack on top of each other for ease of storage and maximization of your space.  

Final Tip: Organize for Accessibility

This article focused on knowing what your space was being used and organized for and which products and systems will help you create and maintain that organization. We have just one final–crucial–tip to add. 

Tips, Tricks, and Products for Your Storage Shed or Garage

When organizing your space, whether you do it with a professional Denver organizer, or tackle the organizing on your own, make sure everything is organized for accessibility. What does that mean?

As mentioned, stacked bins will help you create a system that makes sense. Some of the best ways to stack them is by category or action, depending on how specific or broad of categories you create. The urgency of the items in the stack, and how you zone them while you organize is important.

Remember to Ask: Whose Space is it Really?

Most of the time, we deal with wives when it comes to organizing the home. They will automatically assume responsibility for getting the garage organized as well. However, in most of our dealings, it is not the wife who uses the garage or storage shed the most–it is the husband. And more times than not, he is unaware of the garage/shed project. 

At Organized by Keli & Co, we prioritize respecting the person who utilizes the space the most. If your partner primarily uses the room

  • They must be involved

  • They must want the garage or shed to be more organized

  • They must be willing to work with us to declutter and organize those areas

At Organized by Keli & Co, People Are Always More Important Than Things

On the outside, your garage or storage shed may seem like a weird place to devote our organizing energy; garage areas have so much more potential than people give them. Stop shoving boxes you never unpacked into the crevices of your garage, and hire a team of professional organizers in Denver to tackle the problem head-on. 

We’re here to help give you the best tips, tricks, and support to get your storage shed or garage looking and feeling great. If DIYing your garage space seems like a bigger headache than you are willing to deal with, hire our team to do it with you!
