Angie’s List: Organizing Your Garage

(WGGB) — The garage ranks as one the most disorganized room in the house. It can become a dumping ground for toys, sports equipment, and tools.

However. that garage clutter may be costing you more than just space.

If you’re overwhelmed by the mess in your garage, you may want to hire a professional organizer.

“If you don’t have time to get your garage organized yourself, it might be worth investing in a professional organizer. You need to talk to the organizer to determine what they can bring to the table and make sure the outcome is going to be something you’re going to be able to live with,” says Angie Hicks of Angie’s List.

Some organizers also sell and install storage products such as overhead storage bins, wall racks, and cabinets.

“Here we have some slat wall which is another popular item in the garage these days. You can do it in small sections like this, or panel your whole walls, but there are lots of accessories including shelves,” adds professional organizer Tom Flemming.

Some homeowners complete the look of an organized garage with epoxy flooring. The hardened, high-gloss polish resists scuffing and abrasions.

Before hiring an organizer, ask how you’ll be charged. Is it by the hour or by the project and are there additional charges for products?
