Mudrooms come in various shapes and sizes. They can be located in several areas of the home since they’re commonly not traditional rooms, but designated areas of a living space. Nowadays, you’ll find mudrooms in home entryways, hallways, nook spaces, large hall closets, paired with a laundry rooms, and anywhere else near an entrance. You’ll even find more and more homes that have garage mudrooms.

If a garage floor is filled with clutter, one of the things occupying some of that valuable floor space might be one or more sets of tires. A larger 3 or 4-car garage owner may be able to stash their spare tires in a corner and still have enough space for the garage to be functional and allow for indoor parking. In smaller garages or even large garages where every parking spot is occupied, however, those extra tires can infringe on the space that is needed to use the room how you want. A home tire storage system is the perfect solution for anyone who has encountered such a problem. Here’s everything you need to know about storing extra tires in the garage properly.
Most of us never have enough garage storage space. It isn’t surprising why – the garage is one of the biggest rooms in a house. Along with basements and attics, that makes it a magnet for clutter and those extra things we can’t figure out what to do with. After years of being the home’s dumping ground, the garage floor space starts to gradually disappear. Eventually, the garage becomes so packed that there’s no room to park vehicles anymore. Does this sound familiar?
When renovating your garage, something you should take into consideration is whether or not you want your garage to have windows. Adding windows to the garage can have many benefits, especially if you plan to use your garage for more than just storage.
When your garage is piled high with storage, it can feel like an overwhelming task to start organizing it. While using a garage for extra storage may have started with the intention of keeping it organized and maintained, over time it becomes a place to store junk rather than valued home items.
Along with storing vehicles, the garage is mainly used as a storage space for all your extra household items that you don’t want in your home. Because it’s used for storage, items tend to build up over time, causing the garage to become overcrowded and very cluttered. Many people have so much junk in their garage, they can’t even use it for its core purpose: storing vehicles.
You walk into a garage filled with clutter that covers the floor from wall to wall. Then you look up at the garage ceiling area and notice all that open space is completely unused. Meanwhile, the homeowner’s vehicles are always parked in the driveway. What’s wrong with this picture?
