We are so excited to finally unveil our completed garage makeover!
This past spring, we put out a challenge to our staff to see whose garage needed the most help. It was a tough choice between 4 staff garages, but in the end, Gavin’s was chosen.
His garage was full of clutter, and had almost zero storage. Everything he needed to keep in the garage was just taking up space on his garage floor.
Enter Simple Spaces. We came up with a design for Gavin, based on his storage needs. First, he got his garage ready for our team by painting, clearing out all the clutter and getting his garage floors coated.
Then, we went to work. What does Gavin think of his brand new garage? He told us, and gave us some tips for anyone thinking of adding storage to their garage:
“1. The best thing about my new garage is the overall feeling of organization. Everything is out of sight, easy to get to and easy to put away. Also, the overall ‘look’ of the garage is amazing.
2. I would tell other people that before you start, this project can take time, depending on the state of your garage. The Shelving was the easy part! The prep work to get there can take a lot of time and a few dollars. Tip: Plan to do this project in spring or summer. During the winter months, it would have been tough to paint.
3. With the Shelving in the garage, I don’t think I would change anything! Just be mindful of shelving depths you want, think about the vehicles you drive and how much room these take. Smaller vehicles will allow for deeper shelves, but for bigger vehicles you may want to go with a shallower depth.”
