Declutter 

Before using your garage, make sure to declutter it. One thing to remember before you turn your garage into your new storage unit is to clean it out. Yes, declutter, sweep, and clean the garage to ensure all your items stay nice, tidy, and neat. A clean garage is much easier to work with, not to mention safer too! 

Get rid of any unnecessary clutter in storing new things in your garage. You can donate/sell/gift items you no longer use to friends and family. It is a simple yet effective tip. 

Decluttering your full garage may initially seem overwhelming, but it's not. Once you start, it will get easier to handle. You will also find that decluttering a space in your home is super relaxing for the mind. 

You may see that you can finally get rid of things that are of no use to you but have been with you for years. 

Ensure your garage has better lighting features

You will never fully use your garage if you can't see it properly inside it. So, prioritize this step among the things to do. Renewing your garage will need better lighting. Making sure the garage is well-lit will help make it easier for you to set your things in there and reach for them as needed. 

You don't have to spend too much on lighting. You can use lightbulbs from other areas in your home that are of no use. Also, ensure that natural light can easily get inside your garage, as this also helps.  

A well-lit garage is more welcoming and encourages you to use it more. So, adding better lighting is your best bet. 

Prioritize things that need fixing

Once you are done decluttering and adding lighting features, prioritize anything else that may need fixing. For example, repairing broken or loose shelves could be one of them. Broken frames keep you from storing or adding anything else in your garage. 

The faster you attend to such things, the better you will be able to use your garage in no time.
