Seven Reasons Why Strickland’s Organizes Garages

Sponsored Content provided by Fred Kumpel - Owner, Strickland's Home

Perhaps you’ve heard the news already: Strickland’s Home recently added a new member to our team, Rich Moore. A long-time cabinetry specialist, Moore will serve as head of our custom garages division.

While Strickland’s is well-known for its custom window treatments and closet designs, some of our clients have expressed surprise at our latest endeavor. How might a custom garage serve our Wilmington community members? As you’ll see, we’re continuing to do what we’ve always done: Addressing local homeowners’ most pertinent needs with custom organization and storage solutions.

A classic car enthusiast and hobbyist myself, I understand the desire for a well-organized garage with plenty of working space. Here are a few reasons why we believe our neighbors might benefit from a custom garage as well:

1. The garage is the single most cluttered space in our homes.

According to a home organization study, it’s not just our closetskitchen pantries, and home offices that need organizing — the garage is typically the messiest spot in the home. If your garage could use an in-depth inventory check, you’re not alone. At Strickland’s, our professional designers will make sure all of your belongings end up with the perfect storage solution, from wall organizers to overhead storage.

2. Only one out of ten homeowners are completely satisfied with their garage.

A Wall Street Journal survey finds a mere 11 percent of us think our garages are in great shape. That means the rest of us are likely in need of a garage makeover. Clearly, the need for garage organization is a common issue, and at Strickland’s, we can provide the solution with a custom garage design to suit all of your needs, from new flooring and durable shelving to car lifts and watercraft storage.

3. More than half of homeowners plan to reorganize their garage within the next two years.

But as you may have realized already, this can be a daunting task if you’re dealing with a large inventory or multi-use garage space. This is where having access to professional home organizers and quality organizing products is key to save your time and discover the best long-term organization solutions for your space.

4. A quarter of Americans with two-car garages don’t (or can’t) park in them.

Why? You guessed it: garage clutter, according to a U.S. Department of Energy study. Yet, 74 percent of homeowners say “parking” is the most important function of their garage. If your space is unable to serve its primary purpose due to a lack of organization, let us improve your storage for you. With decades of organizing experience, we’ve seen it all, and we know exactly how to help. 

5. Fifty-five percent of Americans spend one to two hours a week working in their garage.

Yes, that’s right: Over half of us devote quality time to our hobbies in our garage space each week, according to an Impulse Research survey. For many of us, the garage provides far more than space to park your cars and store bins full of holiday decor — it’s also a second living space. That’s where a built-in workspace and custom cabinetry with drawers for all of your supplies can make all the difference.

6. Eighty percent of would-be homebuyers take consider the garage before making an offer.

An Impulse Research survey finds the garage space is a key consideration for future homeowners. When it comes to increasing the resale value of your home, the garage should be one of your top priorities. Cracked, stained flooring and worn-out shelving don’t make the greatest first impression, but a custom garage renovation can bring you a real return on your investment. Realtors agree: 90 percent say garages should offer potential buyers more than just a space to park their wheels, finds a Braun Research survey.

7. Fifty-two percent of homeowners want a garage that makes their neighbors jealous.

We’d venture to guess that’s a low estimate. After all, who doesn’t want a garage they can be proud of? For a party garage that everyone will want to visit on Superbowl Sunday, or just a nice, organized garage space for your family,contact us at Strickland’s Home. Our designers will provide the storage solutions your garage needs.
