Garage 1The best companies make garage storage design a collaborative process. You want to work with a company that makes your garage organization needs a priority and communicates with you throughout the entire process to make sure your needs are met.

A collaborative garage design process usually begins with a design appointment. Call or fill out a form online to set up the meeting. A designer will come to your home, measure the space, take inventory of your garage and talk to you about what you would like to see. Do you need slatwall and cabinetry? Do you have room for overhead racks? What do you have to have to solve your garage organization problems? Only after assessing the space and taking your requirements into account should the design begin.

The designer may design and price your garage storage system right then and there or they might set up a follow up appointment to review the design at a later date. This part may vary based on the company or even the individual designer. No matter what, you should be an active part in the design process and be vocal about any changes you would like to see. The designers are the storage experts, but you are the “you” expert, and it’s your space after all!

Once you review and approve the garage storage design, then you will sign off on the drawings and schedule an installation date. Most installations can be completed in a day. Although if you opt for an epoxy coated garage floor, that will take a few days by itself, with the storage system to follow about 2-4 weeks after approving the final garage design. The entire process from design appointment through installation could take as little as a few days, or as long as 4-6 weeks depending on your schedule and the company’s availability at the time.
