Get the garage ready for winter

As the autumn leaves begin to fall and the temperatures start to drop, it’s that time of year again when the whole of the UK begins to think about organising the home ready for winter. From the over used BBQ that’s still sitting invitingly on the patio, to the elegant wooden dining set that won’t see another family gathering until next year, throughout October and November it’s essential that you begin to think about where all your summer essentials can go. Whilst for some that may be as easy as putting everything into the perfect spaces your summer gear has left empty since early May, for others it might not be quite so easy. 

As the autumn leaves begin to fall and the temperatures start to drop, it’s that time of year again when the whole of the UK begins to think about organising the home ready for winter. From the over used BBQ that’s still sitting invitingly on the patio, to the elegant wooden dining set that won’t see another family gathering until next year, throughout October and November it’s essential that you begin to think about where all your summer essentials can go. Whilst for some that may be as easy as putting everything into the perfect spaces your summer gear has left empty since early May, for others it might not be quite so easy. 

With the addition of 4 months of garden furniture and countless pieces of summer paraphernalia, the garage can quickly become a cluttered mess if not properly organised. It’s for this reason that Dura have put together the following 4 step plan to help you get ready for the winter months so that you can enjoy a peaceful and clutter free few months

1. Clear the Floor:

Before you start putting everything away, make sure that you get everything off the floor to clear space for all your returning gear. Whilst you could use some handy hooks to achieve this, we’ve found the most practical way is to use some flexible Storewall panels & removable accessories. Not only do these allow you to make the most of the wall space available, they also give you the flexibility to move items around when necessary.

2. Protect your floor:

Once the floor is clean and tidy, the next area you should look at is protecting your existing floor from the returning equipment. BBQ’s and other garden furniture can leave waste oil/fat on your floor so it’s worth protecting it with a simple sheet of tarpaulin or a practical and easy to lay PVC floor tile covering.

3. Organise all of your summer items:

Next we’d suggest buying large storage boxes or heavy-duty storage cabinets to ensure everything that’s coming back from the garden is neatly and securely stored away. Whilst garage cabinets can cost slightly more than conventional storage boxes, they will last a lifetime if properly looked after and will store all of your existing ‘bits and pieces’ effortlessly

4. Make sure everything is secure:

With everything now back in the garage, it’s no surprise that your garage can be susceptible to theft if not securely locked up. By using the combination of a solid and well protected garage door along with lockable cabinets, you can rest easy in the knowledge that everything will be exactly where you left it until next summer.
