Store Your Seasonal Belongings Easily with Functional Garage Organization Solutions from Tailored Living

The holiday season is a magical time, beautiful white snow on the ground, everyone in happy spirits, and friends and family gathering to share in each other’s good company. But despite the holiday cheer, it is also the time of year where husbands and wives find themselves wrestling the holiday decorations down from the attic, up from the basement and out of their yearlong hibernation. And every year they vow to organize their decorations and make them more accessible next year to decrease the stress that comes with taking down and setting up all the seasonal décor. This year, store your seasonal decorations, sports gear, apparel, and equipment in an easy to access and well-organized area – your garage!

The garage has plenty of space that is often wasted by poor organization or even a complete lack of garage organization solutions. There are many ways to convert your cluttered garage into an organized and streamlined space used for storing your seasonal belongings. There are two main spaces of your garage that are perfect for storage; these areas are the walls and the ceilings. Now, when it comes to finding the right garage storage solutions for your specific situation, you have to take into account what kind of space you are working with. Can you install full sized garage cabinetry units along the sides and back of your garage? If you can, that may be your best option for storage of larger objects. If you don’t have enough room for full-sized cabinets, you can always try implementing customized garage shelving that will keep your items organized and off the ground. OR you can go with the widely popular gridwall racks available through your local Tailored Living. Gridwall racks provide a garage storage solution that can work for anything from bicycles to tennis balls and everything in between.

Aside from the walls spanning your garage, you have an entire space of ceiling that is often overlooked by homeowners. Overhead storage is the perfect garage organization solution for seasonal decorations, sports gear, equipment, and apparel. It stays out of the way for the majority of the year, but when you need it, it is easily accessible!

Before and After: Tailored Living Garage Organization Capabilities


Have you ever wondered what your garage would look like if you had enough room to store all of your belongings in an organized fashion? Have you envisioned your dream garage but can’t convince yourself to tackle the overwhelming task of a garage organization project? Well it’s time to conquer your vexing garage fears and build the garage you have been dreaming of with the help of the organizational experts at Tailored Living!

Does your garage look like this?

Garage before 10-5-12

The main problem that most people have when it comes to garage organization is that they put their excess “stuff” into the garage and don’t have enough storage space for all of it. As you can see in the picture above, there are a few metal shelving racks that are filled to the brim with odds and ends. The key to organization is simplicity. The easier it is to store and retrieve items, the less clutter a space will have because items will be put away instead of strewn about. Tailored Living came in and added tall cabinetry behind and away to open up the space and a gridwall to hang frequently used items. Here is what the area looks like after the Tailored Living treatment:

garage after 10-5-12

On the right side of the garage (see below), we see a white bookshelf acting as a shoe rack and a backpack hanging haphazardly on the side of the metal storage unit. The drywall is plainly visible, bicycles are tossed arbitrarily toward the back of the garage and the floor is cluttered with toys, tools, and trash.

Tailored Living came in and showed just how effective a true gridwall system can be. The clutter is no more, being replaced by product specific organizational tools. The nets for children’s toys make them easily accessible but also keep them off the floor and out of the way. Yard tools and equipment are easily hanged up and the bikes have been hoisted up and out of the way. Finally, the flexible floor tiles pull the room together and create a viable work and play space in an area that was previously useless other than for parking a car.

Take control of your garage organization and you may be surprised to find the gem of a garage underneath all the clutter!

Tailored Living Featured on NBC's George to the Rescue

After enlisting in the Marine Corps in 2002, Corporal Watson completed the rigors of Corps training and was deployed to Iraq to proudly serve his country. Assigned to the 3rd Battalion 5th Marines, Watson was the Vehicle Commander for a Heavy Machine Gun/Anti-Armor Weapons Team, an integral unit for combing enemy territory and keeping ground troops safe. Sustaining a bullet wound to the shoulder during his first tour, Corporal Watson rehabilitated, was awarded his first Purple Heart, and quickly returned for a second deployment in Iraq. A second gunshot wound to the knee earned Watson a second Purple Heart, another trip to rehabilitation, and his final opportunity to enlist and re-deploy to Iraq.?It was during his third tour in 2006 that Corporal Watson’s vehicle was hit by a roadside bomb, flipping it, and causing causalities to his whole unit. The physical damage that resulted led to Corporal Sherman Watson’s honorable discharge from the Marine Corps after earning three Purple Hearts.

Returning to his hometown roots in Compton, CA, this proud marine was trying to make a life for himself and his growing family, but following the injuries sustained during his three tours in Iraq, daily home improvement tasks became difficult. Splitting time between school, his family and “The Veterans Alternative” (an organization that promotes therapeutic relationships and conversation between veterans about their experiences), Sherman lacked the time, funds, and experience to accomplish the home improvement projects needed to make his house a better place to raise his children. That is where Tailored Living and George to the Rescue came in.

“Tailored Living worked very hard with George to the Rescue to design and install a functional, organized garage space in order to pay tribute to Sherman Watson and the incredible sacrifices he has made for our country,” states Dan Tafoya, Senior Vice-President of Tailored Living. “Providing time-saving and stress-free organizational solutions to fit his personal needs will let Corporal Watson spend more time on what is most important – his family and his community. We are honored to be part of this show and opportunity to give back to a very deserving man and father.”

Tailored Living’s design team of experts used D’Vinci™– a proprietary interactive design software – to create a functional and fully organized space by adding new cabinetry and flooring that helped transform the Watson family garage into a multi-purpose space for their growing family.

Be sure to tune in on October 13th to watch Corporal Sherman Watson’s incredible garage transformation! Check your local NBC listings for airing times. For more information, click HERE.
