The garage is not the first place you think of when it comes to thinking about beautiful organization. Just because your garage cabinets aren’t always in your field of vision doesn’t mean that they can’t have personality, though! Customizing your storage and organizers can help you to feel more eager to clear up clutter, and it doesn’t have to take a week on DIY websites to make it happen! Here are five quick ways to make your storage system totally your own:
1. Lighten things up with lights.
Adding a lighting system to your garage cabinets can make it easier to see what has been stored, and it can help brighten up a dark, bland space. The best part about adding lights is that, when it comes to installing lighting, the options are endless! You can go all in by adding track lighting in dark spaces or corners, or start simple by adding battery operated stick-on lights directly to the inside of doors.
2. Add custom shelving or work tables.
Need to hide the kids’ basketballs and soccer balls during the offseason? Installing wire shelving in your garage cabinets can get them out of the way and safely stored from mold and moisture. If you need a workspace for your side gig or hobby, placing a tabletop across a low shelving system can give you a great new workspace or desk.
3. Update the fixtures and knobs.
Doing a simple update on the handles, knobs, and fixtures of your cabinet doors and drawers can give them a totally custom feel (without spending a lot of money). The best part is, these are the easiest customizations to install yourself. It’s something you can knock out in an afternoon after a trip to the local hardware store.
4. Freshen up with a new coat of paint.
Much like your cabinets in your home, the garage cabinets can also always use an update with a coat of paint. Head to the Internet for some awesome ideas, or just pop into your local hardware store for samples to help jumpstart your creativity.
5. There can always be more… or less!
Renovating the entire storage system can be a great way to make sure your storage needs are taken care of as things change in your home and life. Updating a shelving system to account for stored baby furniture, seasonal clothing, or even important documents you want out of the way is an easy way to refresh the look.
Now, thanks to numerous home improvement blogs and their great ideas, every room of the house can be freshened up and made to reflect your personal style, including the garage! Updating your garage cabinets to make them totally yours can help liven the space up and make it another beautiful place in your home instead of just an afterthought. We can’t wait to see your customizations!
