Time to sort out the space in the garage.

THE last Bank Holiday of the year is only a week away, which signals the time for the customary post-Summer tidy-up around the home and garden.

The most common area of the home for storing a lot of this clutter is the garage.

Maximising this space using purpose-designed shelving and storage racks is essential and will ensure you can find what you want when you need it again next year.

To help, leading online storage and shelves supplier Shop 4 Shelves offers some Top Tips for reorganising your garage:. Start with a sort out: What is there? Be ruthless, do you really need that old tin of dried out paint? . Organise: Have a space for everything and keep everything in its space.

. Give us a clue: Use labels and colours to give other people a chance of finding things.

. Divide and conquer: Keep similar items together, have one shelf or bay for the garden, one for tools, one for bikes and one for holiday etc.. Pitch in: Use the height and easy adjustability of the shelving to maximise your available space.. Mind your back: Put the heavy items on the middle or bottom shelves with light stuff higher up.. Keep it up: Use a bottom shelf to store liquids, so that in the event of a spillage other items are less likely to be damaged.
