Garage Safety and Organization: 5 Ideas to Consider

Garages are essential to any home, providing storage space for your car and other belongings. However, they can also pose potential dangers to both your family and your items if proper precautions are not taken.

Here are five tips from GarageExperts® of Boise on how to make your garage safer for everyone and how our garage makeover services make it easier to achieve a safe and organized space:


1. Add More Storage to Make Room to Walk

One of the most significant threats to your safety and that of your family and possessions is a cluttered garage with insufficient room to walk. Tripping over haphazardly placed items can lead to not only personal injury but also potential damage to your vehicle and other stored belongings.

At GarageExperts® of Boise, we've crafted the perfect solution to this problem – our custom garage cabinets. These cabinets are more than just storage solutions; they are instruments of safety designed to keep your garage tidy and spacious. Crafted to your specifications, they seamlessly integrate with your garage's layout, facilitating easy movement and reducing the risks associated with a disorganized space!


2. Find a Home for Your Most Used Tools

Stowing your cleaning supplies in the corner or casually placing your weed eater next to your vehicle may seem convenient, but this approach is far from optimal for organizing your most frequently used items. In fact, such practices can inadvertently contribute to a cluttered environment, increase the risk of hazardous spills, or even lead to unintentional damage to your car.

GarageExperts® of Boise's slatwall organization systems can help keep your frequently used tools organized and easily accessible. Designed to fit your specific needs, these systems allow for efficient use of space, reducing the likelihood of accidents in your garage!


3. Add Locks to Storage and Keep Dangerous Items Out of Reach

As a responsible homeowner, it's vital to ensure that dangerous items are stored securely and out of reach, especially if you have children. With GarageExperts® of Boise, you have the assurance that our cabinets can be fitted with sturdy, reliable locks to keep hazardous items safely stored away.

Moreover, our slatwall organization systems can reach up to the ceiling, allowing you to place risky items out of lower reach. You can utilize various accessories like baskets, hooks, and shelves to safely store these items away from your family.

Here are some common garage items that should be placed securely out of reach:

  • Chemicals like paint, pesticides, and car fluids
  • Sharp objects such as saws, knives, and nails
  • Power tools and machinery
  • Gasoline and propane tanks
  • Ladders and heavy equipment

4. Invest in a High-Quality Floor Coating

The flooring of your garage plays a pivotal role in minimizing accidents such as slips and falls, especially when the floor is often subjected to elements like oil spills, water, and tire residue. But at GarageExperts® of Boise, we offer a solution that goes beyond your ordinary epoxy floor coating.

Our GarageFX® flooring system leverages the power of epoxy and polyaspartic coatings, which are renowned for their extreme durability, non-slip properties, and resistance to chemical damage. This ensures a safer space, easier maintenance, and a polished look that elevates the overall aesthetic of your garage. Trust in our expertise to not only safeguard your garage but also enhance its visual appeal!


5. Turn it Into a Different Kind of Space

Your garage need not be just a space for car storage; it can be so much more. If you often use your garage for other activities, it may be advisable to fully commit to a garage makeover. This transformation can help you optimize the space for your specific needs while still maintaining safety and organization.

Here are a few examples of how your garage can be repurposed:

  • Home Gym: Equip your garage with fitness gear to create a private workout space. No more gym memberships or waiting for equipment!
  • Home Office: In the era of remote work, a quiet, dedicated workspace can significantly improve productivity. A garage can be the perfect solution.
  • Workshop: Whether you're into carpentry, mechanics, or any other craft, a garage can be converted into a professional-grade workshop.
  • Art Studio: Need a space to let your creativity flow? Your garage can be the perfect haven for your artistic pursuits.

Truly, anything is possible when it comes to redesigning your garage. At GarageExperts® of Boise, we're here to help you realize your dream space, ensuring safety, functionality, and aesthetics every step of the way!
