If you struggle with using your garage for storage of your personal property or parking your vehicle, the team here at Neighborhood Garage Door Repair wants you to know you’re not alone. Many homeowners try to use their garage as double duty to keep some of the unused or rarely used items out of the inside of their homes. For many, garage clutter can be a real problem.
Parking Your Car In Your Garage Can Be Beneficial
If you struggle with garage clutter and don’t have the space to park your car, you may be losing out on the intended use. Parking outside the garage really doesn’t make much sense when the purpose of the garage is for parking. Here are some of the benefits of parking your vehicle in the garage:
- Garage parking will protect the investment you have in your vehicle
- Your vehicle will be more secure from possible thieves
- Keeping your vehicle out of the weather is helpful for the vehicle itself but also to keep you warm and dry if you have an attached garage
- It is more convenient than parking in the driveway or on the street
- Parking in the garage can keep you safer from a potential threat
- Add more curb appeal by parking in the garage
- You may be surprised to know many vehicles are parked 95% of the time and only driven 5% of the time
Exploring all the benefits of parking inside your garage can really help you make an informed decision.
Useful Storage Tips For The Garage
If you would still like to use your garage for storage, you are in luck. There are many designers who can help with garage storage and you can choose to purchase storage systems. You may also build some shelves yourself and come up with your own solutions for garage storage. Each homeowner may have their own idea of storage for their garage and home.
If you choose to store items in your garage, keeping it free of clutter is definitely ideal. If you have chemicals stored in your garage and even tools, keeping them up and safely out of the way is helpful. If you choose to keep rarely used items such as holiday decorations in the garage, shelves and storage bins can be helpful.
Why Not Both?
In a truly organized garage, you can have the space for both parking and storage. Keeping your vehicle out of the elements is obviously a good choice for protecting your vehicle. Cluttering up the garage with nothing but storage items would not be an ideal situation.
You can have it both ways if you work at it and get your garage designed to be able to have it both ways. Whether you use a designer or design storage solutions yourself, you will be happier with an organized and functional garage. Functionality is always a key component when choosing storage solutions.
