Because the garage is one of the most functional, versatile and largest spaces in the home, investing in custom organization can add a tremendous amount of value.
Closet POSSIBLE designs and installs custom garage organization systems throughout Mercer County, Middlesex County, Hunterdon County, Somerset County and Bucks County. Many homeowners come to us because they’re tired of looking at a mess every time they walk or drive into the garage. They’re tired of not being able to quickly find what they want.
Custom design in the garage could very well be more complex and personal than any room in your home because it often comes down to the hobbies and interests of various family members. Remember, when it comes to customization, there is no “standard.” Therefore, there should be no compromise. We can build custom garage organization systems for people who like to fix things, build things, play sports, relax by the pool, work out, garden, bike, camp or kayak. The possibilities are endless.
This is where the number of options comes into play. Most garages require a mix of wall organizers, open shelves, closed cabinets and drawers to be organized effectively. Too many people get caught up in the garage organization section of a home improvement store, spend a fortune on various systems, and cobble together disparate solutions on nights and weekends. Then they realize their garage is no more organized than when they started. That’s the danger of DIY projects. You can easily spend more than what you would have paid a professional, and you end up with an inferior solution.
We need to do a lot of digging to come up with the right garage design strategy for each client. What do you want to store long-term and short-term? What items do you use every week? What items do you use a few times a year? We typically need to get answers to these questions from several members of the family. One person could be an athlete, one could be a gardener, and another could be a woodworker. Maybe dad has more holiday decorations than the rest of the neighborhood combined. Fortunately, the garage is usually big enough to accommodate everyone, as long as you’re organized.
We at Closet POSSIBLE also take environmental factors into consideration, from the weather to the critters that live outside. For example, we recommend installing all garage cabinets a few inches off the floor to avoid melting ice and snow, as well as leaves and other debris. We also use backing for garage cabinets instead of simply installing them against the wall. As airtight as your garage may seem, little critters somehow manage to sneak in. Without backing, they could get into your cabinets and damage your valuables.
It’s time to tame the wild beast that is the mess in your garage. Call us to schedule a free, no-obligation consultation in your home or our Pennington, NJ showroom.
