You know that box of tools that has been sitting in the corner of your garage for the past couple of years? National Clean Out Your Garage Day is Saturday, September 11th, and is the perfect time to take those tools and find a cool way to store them! A clean, organized garage is simply an extension of your beautifully designed American Legend home and can make a house feel even more polished. And many of our Colorado floor plans offer three-car garage options, giving you even more work and storage space. Here are some fun ways to clean up and clean out.
1. Easy organization:
There are easy ways to tidy up our garage just by taking things off the floor and hanging them up! Rather than having your tools in a box, take that hammer and nails and create a tool wall. This gives you easy access to your tools when you need them but creates space so they are out of your way. And you can hang just about anything, even the bikes you ride on one our many community trail systems (like the ones at RainDance)!
2. Getting rid of the junk:
Don’t wait for “spring cleaning” to purge the random items that seem to magically accumulate in the garage. Take one afternoon and clean out those boxes you’ve been forgetting to throw away. And ditch the vacuum that doesn’t work anymore. Removing clutter always makes us feel better about the spaces we move through every day.
Get creative in your garage storage plan by creating zones for specific household and outdoor items. Carve out sections of your spacious American Legend Homes garage to make zones for camping equipment, lawn care, car care, sporting equipment, holiday decorations and more.
Removing clutter from your garage has a way of making a home feel more comfortable. Most people see cleaning out a garage as a chore but if you tackle it as a DIY project, it can be fun! On National Clean Out Your Garage Day, transform your American Legend Home garage into just one more room in the house for the family to enjoy!
