Home Makeover? Why You Should Consider Tackling Your Garage First
August 22, 2022
You’ve been living in the same house for the past 20 years. It may be old but you don’t want to move out because there have been so many memories made in this one house. But you are longing for change since the kids have gone to live their separate lives. You want to do or feel something new, even though people might think you are already old. You are on the right track by thinking of changing your daily environment to feel some change in your life. But it doesn’t mean that you have to move out, build a new home or find a new place to stay. It can also mean changing the look of your current house, decluttering so you can take out what you no longer need and have more space in the house, and perhaps buying new furniture to replace your old ones. We all know that people rarely buy furniture but it’s something you can choose to replace since you have been using the same things since time immemorial. Okay, let’s assume you have decided to finally change the look of your house. Where should you start? Should the kitchen be your starting point because you cook your meals there and you want it to be done before anything else? Should you start in your bedroom because you want to take care of your personal stuff first before you go through the things that don’t belong to you; for example, your kids’ toys back when they were in Kindergarten. Or should you start redesigning the living room since it’s where you accept visitors? Personally, if you ask me, it’ll be none of the above. I would start with the garage first. Why people might think. The garage is often neglected and people might never start tackling the area especially after they just redesigned the whole house. People would let their garages be but not me. I happen to think that if I clean the garage first, I would have a storage space for items that I will discover in my bedroom and other parts of the house that I want to keep. The garage, with better smart storage solutions, can store these for me and preserve their beauty. I am also a very outdoorsy person and imagine using the garage as a storage space for my athletic gear and also the areas where I can exercise if I’m not going to the gym. The garage also houses probably the most expensive stuff that homeowners own, the car, which means its cleanliness and safety has to be ensured. Smart storage solutions such as overhead garage racks and wall shelves are the way to go. You can automatically free up the floor space when you use the wall and the ceiling as a storage area. Here are some storage units from FlexiMounts that can help you incorporate the change you are looking for in life. Let’s introduce being organized into your system.
