Give Your Garage a Makeover

Giving your garage a makeover by organizing it

Could Your Garage Use A Makeover?

Concrete Coatings of Minnesota has the experience and skill to give you a beautiful garage floor. You will feel so freed once you organize your garage. Give your garage the makeover it deserves.

For many people, the idea of having their garage floor recoated is appealing, but the thought of dealing with everything they have stored in their garage keeps them from doing it. So perhaps it is time to give yourself an extra gift—the gift of organization.

The Problem of a Disorganized Garage

There are many negative consequences to having a garage packed to the rafters in a disorganized way. Just a few are:

  • Risk of injury from tripping over items or having items fall on you as you look for things in the pile of boxes
  • Wasted money on something that you know you have somewhere, but you can’t find what you are looking for
  • Frustration, and even family quarrels, as you look for holiday decorations

It’s Time for a Fresh Start

This spring, you can have a beautiful garage that you will be proud of. It won’t be instant, but it will last. No more shifting useless stuff around! The best thing is that you can do this while your garage floor is coated! Concrete Coatings of Minnesota sets you up with a pod in which you can store the contents of your garage while they are coating your garage floor.

Take Everything Out of Your Garage

You will take the items to one of four different areas (This is much easier if you have a helper or two). 

  1. The first area will be the trash. If you don’t use it and no one else will either, throw it away!
  2. The second pile will be your “donate” pile. It is best to put all your donations directly into your car or truck so that you can bring them right to your local thrift store when it is full.
  3. The third pile is your “keep” pile. This is the stuff that you know you will use. It belongs in your garage, and once the floor is coated, you will put it there in an organized way. But, for now, store this stuff, temporarily, in the pod that you get through Concrete Coatings of Minnesota.
  4. The fourth place isn’t a pile. It is for the stuff you come across that you want to keep but belongs somewhere else in your home. Bring that stuff to where it belongs immediately.

What to Do with Your Stuff

Now that your garage floor is beautiful (It only takes 48 hours before it is done), it is time to return your items to their new home. When you decide where to put your things, consider how often you use them and group them. For example,

  • Store all your holiday items together.
  • If you can utilize overhead storage, it will be helpful for items that you don’t often use.
  • There are excellent shelving options out there, as well, to help you keep your tubs and boxes in order.
  • Above all, LABEL your boxes! This will save you so much time. You won’t have to open all of them to figure out what is inside.
