Autumn Organisation Tips

Autumn Organisation Tips

As we step into September it’s time to finally wave goodbye to summer (I’m sure we won’t miss this weather too much) and get excited for darker nights and colder weather. September is the perfect time for fresh starts and one way to feel great this autumn is to get organized and have one big clear out. Whether it’s your house, or even your garage that needs a good shaping up, here at Rhino we are here to help you with our range of storage solutions.

For many people, this time of year means a total redesign of their house or garage- this might mean you want to redecorate your living room, vamp up your bedroom or finally tidy the overloading garage. Here at Rhino, we offer a range of sizing and colours in our shelving range to ensure there is something for everyone. So, whether you’ve decided to paint your walls electric blue, or you want to go back to basics with whites and beiges, our storage units can help organise whilst looking lovely in your home or garage.

 Preparing For the Weather

You never know what sort of weather this time of year will bring, and therefore it’s important you pick garage shelving that will survive the winter storms. At Rhino, we offer shelving made of rust-resistant galvanised steel, perfect for your garage at any time of year.

However, the weather can be very unpredictable sometimes, and if you feel like the shelving may be exposed to water or humidity in any way, we advise using paint, varnish or stain your MDF boards at the areas you think may be exposed. This will keep your shelving more long lasting and sturdy through the strong winter weathers.

 Cleaning Out Your Items

This section will go through the basics of how to begin your organization in either your garage or home. The best way to do this is to set aside a whole day to get organized, making sure you have time to get the whole job done – maybe even get friends or family members to help to make the job easier.

To get rid of all your clutter it’s important to make three piles (keep, bin, and donate) and this can help determine what you want you need to keep and what can go, to help create more room within your garage or home. With Christmas fast approaching, it’s important keep our decorations and winter essentials stored neatly, and make sure we bin anything that hasn’t been touched for years.  When it comes around to December, you will thank yourself for being so prepared!

Once you have determined what you want to keep and what you want to get rid of, it will make the rest of your organisation so much easier.

 Always Plan!

The best way to start your organisation is by planning:

  1. Make a floor plan and measure exactly how much space you have.
  2. Order your perfect Rhino Racking to suit your home.
  3. Throw away all clutter.
  4. Organise your items into piles (e.g., Christmas decorations, books, plants etc).
  5. Build your storage units (instructions in box and on website).
  6. Begin to neatly place all of your items onto your racks.
  7. Enjoy the new look!

By following these simple and easy steps it can be so easy to transform your home and garage!

Home Shelving

If you’re planning on redecorating your home this winter, our stylish shelving units are a great addition to add to any part of your home to help save space as well as look stylish. Our advice would be going for the galvanised shelving to achieve a chic look, whilst decorating it with plants and greenery to really make it feel at home. 

These shelving units are a great piece to add to your living room, kitchen or even bedroom to store photos, candles, boxes or even books whilst adding décor to your rooms.

Our range of sizing means our shelving can look good in any home or room, no matter what the size of it may be. It’s important to measure how big you want your storage units to ensure there is plenty of space in the room you’re using it in. Each of our shelving can hold 1000kg of weight meaning you can place a large variety of items on them. It is the perfect home storage solution to use whilst revamping your home this winter. We also offer a range of extra-shelves to give your units more storage space. 

So, whatever your plans may be as we enter into this time of year, make sure to set aside some time to really organise your home and garage space this winter!
