Winter Garage Storage Solutions

January 13, 2023 socialsoft

Winter isn’t just a time to break out the puffy jackets and wool scarves. Depending on the part of the country in which you reside, your winter storage needs may include everything from snow blowers and shovels to ski equipment, ice skates, and sleds for the kids. Not only does a disorganized closet make it hard to find these items when you need them, but it also affects the space’s aesthetic feel. As a result, your garage looks cramped and messy rather than clean and orderly. Fortunately, Closet World employs skilled garage organizers to whip your space into shape. Keep reading to discover some of our top winter garage storage solutions and then call to speak to someone on our team. 

 

Get Stuff Off the Floor

Storing winter weather gear on the floor isn’t just unsightly. It can also be dangerous, as wet items and apparel may lead to slippery floors. The last thing you want is someone you love slipping in a snowy puddle and getting hurt. Additionally, keeping your garage dry is important if you keep your car in there during the winter months. For larger items like skis or sleds, think about hanging them from the ceiling. That way, wall space can be saved for objects you use with more regularity. 

 

Create Shelving for Shoes and Snow Gear

If your house doesn’t have a mudroom, you may be at a loss when it comes to choosing a place to stow winter weather gear so it’s out of the way. Depending on your home’s layout, the garage can be a perfect place to keep these items between uses. We love using slatted metal shelves for wet items like shoes, boots, snow pants, gloves, and hats. Not only does the airflow help the items dry faster, but keeping them on shelves in the garage means they won’t ruin the wood floors or carpet inside the home. 

 

Use a Rack for Tools

Just as coat racks are essential for the foyer or mudroom, garages tend to benefit from tool racks mounted to the wall. Featuring hooks to hold your winter tools in place, a rack can stow everything from rakes to shovels, brooms, and ice scrapers. The end result is that you don’t have to spend valuable minutes searching for what you need. Instead, spend that time drinking hot chocolate in front of the fire with that special someone.
