Shed organization ideas
Organizing your shed can be a complicated task. If you’re tired of stumbling over old tools and need some major decluttering, now is the time to get started! In order to handle this in the most efficient way possible, it’s important to consider storage ideas when it comes to making the best use out of your space.
- Move all your items out of the shed first: To start with organizing or adding storage space to your shed, it’s important for you to move all items out of the shed first. This can help you visualize how much space you have, and where things can go. You should separate your shed items into a “keep”, “dispose” or “donate” pile.
- Make use of shelves: Adding more shelves to your shed helps increase capacity and helps you stack items safely, so they don’t fall down.
- Invest in a pegboard: Pegboards make for a great storage system that allows you to put all sorts of tools, hoses and cords on them. They will help you clear up tons of floor space!
- Long wall racks: Wall racks can be used to store longer items such as garden rakes, pipes and shovels.
- Make use of old pallets: If you happen to have old pallets laying around your shed or home, you can make use of them by turning it into a holder for various tools.
- Use jars and containers for smaller items: If you’ve got old peanut butter or mason jars, don’t let them go to waste! You can repurpose them into nail holders or storage containers for other small accessories.
- Consider using your shed ceiling space: Most people don’t realize that they can build racks or even build a loft for storage at the ceiling level. Making use of your ceiling space allows room to store longer, bulkier items.
- Invest in quality stackable boxes: While plastic or cardboard boxes are a cheaper alternative for storing shed items, consider purchasing some good quality storage boxes so they don’t risk toppling over. You can rest assured stacking them up, knowing they won’t tumble down. You can also consider labelling the boxes so you can find the items easier.
