Organising Your Garage

Izzie | 02/03/22

Very rarely do people use their garage shed solely for the car. In fact, the word ‘garage’ seems to broadly mean storage and easy access for all sorts of home maintenance gear, hobby items, kids stuff, and it often doubles as the laundry and drying room too. It’s fair to say, the expectations of any garage are pretty high.

With a bit of smart thinking, any garage shed can be transformed from an empty shell into a versatile, high-use area – a real asset to your home. Getting things off the floor is key in making the space more usable.

Shelving is the first place to start, and can be used to organise all of your home maintenance equipment, sporting and fishing gear, gardening tools, and kids toys too. A workbench is also a popular choice for those home building projects, potting plants, tying fishing lures… the list of uses goes on.

Once you have shelving and a workbench in place, we recommend investing in a few electrical sockets and a peg board for your tools. Well placed plugs also give you the option to get a bar fridge or wine fridge for your garage, useful for large families, when you have lots of visitors, or just to separate your adult beverages from the main family fridge.

Clear more floor space by moving bikes onto the walls with bike racks and say goodbye to the old clothes airer by installing a wall or ceiling mounted drying rack. There are so many options you’re sure to find something that’s the right size and shape for the space you have available.

KiwiSpan steel garage sheds give you the versatility to make the garage your own, and smart organisation tools help to make it a real asset for your home. 

Whether it’s a garage shed, workshop, sleepout or carport, KiwiSpan has a customised solution for you. Contact us HERE today to get the ball rolling on your next project.
