10 Incredible Ways To Organise Your Garage
For many of us, the garage is our happy place. It houses our tools, our fishing gear and our most prized possession – our car. But that being said, it’s kind of that weird middle ground between being our house and not being our house, so we often slacken off with the tidying and organisation of it.
Turn your garage from looking like a page out of Where’s Wally to a proper, sophisticated room in the house. Give your garage the clean-out it needs with these 10 incredible ways to organise your garage!
1) The declutter
Start by getting rid of the things you never use and have been ‘saving for that rainy day’. That day you’re waiting on usually never comes, so sell off and donate the skiing equipment, clothes and random trinkets you’ve been hording.
2) The sweep out
Grab a broom and take care of those intrusive leaves and rogue spiderwebs once and for all. Cleanliness is next to godliness.
3) The garage door service
You may think your garage is nicely organised, but if your garage door isn’t properly maintained, then you thought wrong! Give some love to the most important part of your garage: its door.
4) The cupboard upgrade
Feel like treating your garage to some new furniture? You’ll thank yourself for it. A nice new garage cupboard/storage unit will lift the atmosphere entirely.
5) The tool wall
Tool walls are absolute lifesavers (and space savers) if you’ve got a lot of tools. They’re easy to install, and super easy to hang your tools up on them.
6) The overhead shelving
If you skipped out on the decluttering step, then you simply have to invest in overhead shelving. This lets you keep the skis, the gym equipment and all the other stuff you couldn’t bear to part ways with.
7) The shelf and cupboard tidy up
Organise all your garage cupboard and shelves – put all your car cleaning products together, your oils and fluids together and your miscellaneous tools together.
8) The hang up
Yard tools are pesky things to store if you don’t have an outdoor tool shed. That’s why we say hang them up! Whether you choose overhead hanging or on the wall, it’s a great way to store yard tools.
9) The bike pulley
We hope you’re sitting down for this one, because this will blow you away: bike pulleys. Got bikes and always have trouble storing them? Store them up high, off the ground!

Everything You Need To Know About Sectional Garage Doors
Although sectional garage doors were first invented in the early 1920s, they’ve maintained their sleek and contemporary look. Sectional doors elegantly rise up and down, panel by panel, to create a satisfying optical experience. When locked, a panel-lift door is very difficult to break into. Hinges connect the horizontal sections of these garage doors, and when you slide the door open, these hinges allow the sections to separate and roll overhead.
What Are The Different Types Of Garage Doors?
Roller doors are an Aussie staple. Sturdy and reliable, they offer exceptional security and are generally very high value. Sectional doors are modern and sleek in design. They’re relatively affordable and offer a broader range of aesthetic options. Tilt doors are a symbol of style and luxury. Built from one solid wood panel, they elegantly float up and down.
The Tools Every Handyman Should Have at Home
Hammers are one tool that pretty much every home needs as they’re used for basic tasks like hanging pictures on the wall. Find a hammer that suits you in terms of size, weight and grip – make sure it feels good in your hand. Possibly the most important tool in your arsenal is the screwdriver. It’s easily the most frequently used tool amongst non-handymen, so it’s equally important for handymen too.
