When it comes to storing items in our garage, most of us think of the typical things like cars, tools, and seasonal decorations. According to Onedesk, the average amount of items in most American homes is approximately 300,000 items. As such, your home may feel cramped or cluttered. Fortunately, there are many other items that can be stored in your garage to help save space and keep your home clutter-free. Here are a few items you should consider placing in your garage storage.
1. Sports Equipment
If you have kids who are involved in sports, you know how quickly equipment can pile up. From bikes to balls, helmets to pads, it can be hard to find a place for everything. The garage is a great space to store sports equipment, especially if you install shelves or hooks to keep everything organized. This will free up space in your home and make it easier for your kids to find what they need when it's time to head to practice.
2. Extra Large Appliances
Another thing you may not have considered storing in your garage is extra appliances. If you have an extra refrigerator, freezer, or washer and dryer, the garage can be a great place to store them. This will free up space in your home and allow you to use the appliances as needed, such as during large family gatherings or when doing extra laundry. Just be sure to protect the appliances from extreme temperatures and moisture.
3. Small Kitchen Appliances
They make many small kitchen gadgets or appliances for just about everything now. You may have different types of grills, fryers, air fryers, waffle makers, toasters, Quesadilla makers, panini makers, iced coffee makers, and hot coffee makers. All of these small kitchen appliances take up a lot of space in your kitchen. Instead of storing all of these items in your kitchen, consider placing them in your garage storage. This can free up more space in your kitchen for other items you use more frequently, like dishes and pots, and pans.
Your garage can be a great space for storing items beyond just the typical tools and seasonal holiday decorations that are typically stored in a garage. With a little creativity and the right shelving or cabinet systems, your garage can become a versatile garage storage space for many different items.
