Decorate and Tidy Your Garage

Keep it organized

Create a system to keep your garage from becoming cluttered. Compartmentalize your space and have a set place for each item to keep tidy.

Use creepers and vines

Decorate the outside of your garage by surrounding it with creepers and vines. This can allow your garage to blend into your front yard.

Don’t hoard

Spring clean your garage regularly. This stops clutter from building up. Keep what you need and discard any unnecessary items.

Use old memorabilia

Keep memories alive by decorating your garage with old family items. Hang old items such as baby shoes, old bicycles, or toys on the walls.

Maximize space

Maximize the space in your garage by installing space-wise storage and shelving units. Design and place inexpensive shelves on each wall.

Garage Door Makeover

I had never had a garage before moving into this little cottage of ours four years ago. Even still, we don’t use it for parking as we have too many tools and outdoor-type things that need storage. Our garage door can be locked but it’s all manual and has never really had much curb appeal other than the fact that it matches our house. I’ve seen tons of people doing garage door makeovers and I had to try my hand at it! It turned out to be painless and very economical. We want to help you DIY, so some of the materials in this post are linked to sellers. Just so you know, Hometalk may collect a small share of sales from the links on this page.
