Garage organisation - our top tips


The garage is very often seen as the dumping ground of your home – a place to throw any unwanted and unused items in to, but this shouldn’t be the case. With a little help and organisation, your garage can be a multi-functional space, or maybe even something as simple as an organisational hub and neat storage area.

If all of this sounds appealing and you think your garage could benefit, follow our top tips below to maximise its potential.

Design with functionality in mind

If you’re starting completely from scratch, the first thing you need to plan is the layout. Are all of the entry points easily accessible? Is there enough space inside the garage to move about, once your car is inside? Other things you need to keep in mind:

  • Power facilities
  • Water facilities

But if you’re upgrading your current garage, a big clear-out is how to start the organisation process. Be ruthless, get rid of items you don’t use – you could either give them to charity, throw them or away or even sell them online. Then group the remaining items in to groups and store them in boxes which are clearly labelled to that category.


Once your car us parked inside, most garages have minimal space, meaning you will have to invest in some storage systems – and it’s smart to store upwards not outwards. Make the most of the headspace, purchase items such as cabinets, wall racks and hooks or be smart and install overhead storage.

To keep your safely stored, easily accessible and secure in the future, call the team at York Garage Doors to discuss repairs or maintenance for your door locking mechanism, or a replacement garage door to make your garage look smart.
