Declutter Your Garage Once and For All The garage is often a dumping ground for whatever doesn’t fit into the house. If your garage needs a serious overhaul, set aside enough time to put it right and enlist help. Start Sorting Sort contents into piles of related items — house maintenance and repair supplies, sports gear, garden tools, holiday decorations, recycling, etc. For items that need to stay in the garage, install shelving and cabinets that will house the items close to where they’re needed. Consolidate Items Storing similar items together, like these shelves for pet supplies in the HGTV Green Home 2011 garage, streamlines household routines. Divert Attention Hang coat hooks for jackets and hats, and install a rack close to the outdoor door for muddy boots. To draw the eye away from clutter, turn the wall into an eye-catching space. In HGTV Green Home 2011, the wall is painted a copper shade and stained with diluted wall paint to add architectural interest. Add Storage Options There are lots of options at various costs for garage shelving. The most crucial point is to provide enough shelving to store your items but to not cover every wall. You want to have space for a workbench and hanging tools, like in the garage of HGTV Dream Home 2009. Jazz It Up A bold paint job takes this space from just-clean to dazzling. Having tools and toys conveniently stored where they’re easy to grab but easy to put away makes it more likely the garage can maintain its shipshape condition. Go Vertical The garage from HGTV Dream Home 2010 features an organizing and workshop system featuring cabinets with sliding metal storage bins, plus a slatwall storage system with space to store sports equipment, tools and more. Double-Duty Storage The back wall of the car barn from HGTV Dream Home 2011 serves as a storage area for snowboards, which double as decorative art in the space, too. Smart Varieties Two trumpet chandeliers create the illusion of livable space in the garage of HGTV Dream Home 2012. Locker-style cabinetry, among other solutions, provides storage space for tools, lawn equipment and sports gear. Take Advantage of the Ceiling The garage’s slatted walls and ceiling hooks accommodate storage of sea kayaks, beach cruisers and golfing equipment in the garage of HGTV Dream Home 2013. Out of Sight A humidity-controlled closet within the HGTV Dream Home 2013 garage houses golfing bags, clubs and equipment and fishing nets. Floor-to-Ceiling Storage Display racks, installed on board-and-batten siding, turn surfboards into wall art, as well as keep them safely stored. The vaulted space with catwalk-style shelf provides ample room to store surfboards and small sailing vessels in the garage of HGTV Smart Home 2013. Keep Dirt Outside A garage floor doesn’t have to be pretty. However, to reduce dirt tracked into the home, you might consider adding floor tiles. These tiles come in a variety of colors and can be mixed and matched to create various patterns. Clean and Clutter-Free Multiple drawers and cabinets keep everything organized and at your fingertips, so you don’t have to go searching through boxes in the garage at HGTV Dream Home 2007. The features allow visibility and accessibility of frequently used items, while other materials can be locked away. Reuse and Repurpose Use items from around the house to help you organize. For example, transform an old file cabinet into a storage bin for large yard tools. Add casters to the bottom to make it mobile for busy outdoor days.

The right storage is of course the key to creating these efficient processes.  I believe everyone should know how to use a drill and a saw so they can create a custom furnished home, designed specifically around their family’s patterns and storage needs.  And if you can build, you can keep up with your family’s changing needs as children grown and interests evolve.  Just a few years ago, I had no idea that a third of my garage storage would need to be dedicated to hockey gear – back then I couldn’t see past the baby dolls and dress up costumes.

I'm considering similar placement of the shelving in my garage. However, I still need to determine which direction the joists run. Because there is a bonus room above the garage, I'm going to assume I have 2 x 6 joists running the length. My question is this: If my joists are running the same direction as my shelving, is it advisable to secure that ceiling support all the way across on a single joist? It would span about 23', and extend out about 3 1/2'. I don't plan on storing anything outrageously heavy up there, but everything together will certainly constitute a load. My concern, from what I've read, is that the joist will flex and eventually crack the drywall panels up there. Any thoughts?
