Spring Means Garage Organization – Before and After Photos

It’s time to get outside and enjoy the Spring weather! That probably means some dusting off and cleaning out of items in your garage. What’s in there anyway?

If you don’t know, then now is the time to sort through what’s been taking up space in this storage area of your home. Clear it out, sort, purge and organize for a more usable space.

Need some inspiration?

We recently worked with a client to create the garage of his dreams. Check out the photos.

All you need is a couple of pictures to see that he was not utilizing his vertical storage and didn’t have enough storage for everything he wanted to keep. But, we saw hope! He also expressed that he wanted the garage of his dreams and this is what we were able to do for him.
