The garage, often hailed as the versatile haven for storing everything from tools to sports equipment, can quickly turn into a chaotic mess if not organised properly. Taming the clutter can be a daunting task but there is a very simple solution which is very effective and that’s baskets.
Here at Garageflex, we love baskets and think they are a staple of any good garage storage system. In fact, we recommend anyone who is having one of our storage systems installed to think about having some baskets included. So in this blog we’ll explore why they are so useful and how they can transform your garage.
1. Maximise your vertical space
Garages have three walls that you can utilise for storage and our baskets, whether you choose Large, Deep or Shallow, can all be hung on the walls making the most of your space. By mounting baskets on your walls, you are freeing up your valuable floor space for larger items such as table tennis tables or even your car.
2. Easy categorisation
Using baskets provides a clear and simple way to categorise your belongings which in turn makes it easier to find what you need, wehn you need it. Try designating each basket for a specific category, whether that be gardening tools, car supplies or gym equipment. This not only streamlines your search when looking for an item but also prevents smaller items getting lost.
3. Makes it easy to find what you need
Ever found yourself rummaging through piles of stuff just to locate a single screwdriver? Baskets bring order to your garage by ensuing your items are easy to find. When your tools, accessories and supplies are neatly placed in baskets, you’ll save precious time and reduce frustration when you need to find something in a hurry.
4. Provides protection from wear and tear
Garages can be harsh environments, subjecting your belongings to temperature fluctuations, dust and damage. Baskets offer a layer of protection, keeping your items elevated and away from hazards on the garage floor. This is especially important for delicate items such as sports gear or electronic tools that you want to keep in pristine condition.
5. Visual Clarity
Baskets provide a clean and uniform appearance to your garage. They transform cluttered mess into an aesthetically pleasing sight. You’ll be surpurposed by the positive impact it has on the look of your space.
Using baskets in the garage provide incredible flexibility as they can adapt to your storage needs. Whether you’re re-organising the space or adding new items in,baskets can be repurposed without too much hassle.
Try using shallow baskets for smaller items and deep baskets for larger tools.
8. Give everyone their own basket
Involving your family in helping to organise the garage becomes more engaging when baskets are part of the plan. You can assign each family member a designated basket or two, making it easier for everyone to contribute to keeping the space neat and tidy.
We like to think of baskets as the unsung hero of storage solutions, helping you transform your messy garage into a tidy and organised space.
