Effective Storage Solutions for Your Garage - DirectBuy of Orlando Provides Tips on Garage Organization

As you're tripping over paint cans and bumping into old bicycles, you may not realize that your garage could be the most functional space in the house.

Orlando, FL, September 18, 2010 --( After all, what other room can serve as workshop, potting shed, storage locker, recycling plant, and carport all at once? A garage is also the best place to store many items that are not used on a daily basis such as holiday decorations, gardening supplies, tools, and anything else that clutters the home.

Creating effective storage in the garage can be done with a bit of ingenuity and planning. DirectBuy of Orlando, the leading home improvement and home furnishings club with direct insider prices, offers these helpful hints on creating usable working space in your garage:

When in doubt, throw it out - Clutter can take over a garage. Before you plan your storage solutions, sort through the clutter and plan a garage sale, give unwanted items to charity or just throw them out.

Get organized - Cut down on clutter and get your garage organized by installing garage cabinets. A new set of cabinets will clear the floor of tools, supplies, and athletic equipment plus open new space for a workshop or potting shed. Cabinets also work well for protecting their contents from moisture and dust.

Maximize your space - Maximize available space in your garage by using narrow storage shelves or wall-mounted racks that can stack up neatly against the walls and leave room for cars.

Smart labeling - Another smart idea is to mark storage bins so they are easy to find or use clear plastic storage boxes to immediately see what you are looking for. No more wasted time searching through an unorganized mess!

“Installing effective storage solutions in your garage means you have quickly created a new room in your home. In a short amount of time and with little investment, homeowners can create a workshop, athletic storage system, potting shed, or any other working solution they may need or imagine,” said Brian Cohen, owner of DirectBuy of Orlando. “DirectBuy also gives members the opportunity to save a lot of money by buying storage solutions for their garage, directly from the manufacturer.”
