Let’s face it, a workroom can quickly get disorganized and cluttered. A couple of new tools, some leftover supplies from your last project, and a few things that “you never know when you might need” may not seem like much, but they add up quickly in a confined space. So, unless you have the resources to build a bigger mancave, consider using these three tips to get your space organized and keep it that way.
1. Use Modular Cabinet Systems
If you need a simple way to get things together and keep them that way, then look no further than a complete modular tool storage system. Available from a variety of stores and online, these offer versatility while accommodating task-specific storage needs.
2. Keep Storage Units Portable
Maybe you don’t want to invest in new cabinets for your space. You still have plenty of options for making things more functional and easy to keep neat. Adding a portable toolbox or workstation can be a huge help when you might be working in different areas of the room. Adding a set of tool box wheels to your existing setup can help keep it affordable.
3. Take Advantage of Overhead Space
Too many people overlook the space above where they work. However, since many garages and outbuildings have elevated ceilings, this is a perfect place to keep less frequently used items. Even if you are in a garage with a standard ceiling, you can still make overhead storage work. Look into rafter-mounted shelf units to store bulky items and get them out from underfoot. Hooks for ladders, cables and sports equipment are also very helpful, and some even allow you to raise and lower them with the touch of a button.
Using tips such as utilizing overhead space, increasing portability and investing in modular storage systems can help you get your workroom organized — and keep it that way.
