There are many ways one can make a work space more efficient and functional. All it takes is some basic organization and the right equipment. By incorporating a few small changes to any kitchen, garage, or work shop, one can turn the space into an easy to use room with everything they need at their fingertips.
The first step towards efficiency is to clean out the area of any items that are either no longer needed or never used. By purging the space of unnecessary clutter one will be adding much needed work space and storage. Once the workspace has been decluttered it is easy to see just how many tools, equipment, or materials are actually being utilized. These things should be placed where they can be reached quickly when needed. Adding wall mounted cabinets can create a lot of storage space without taking up any of the floor space. This open floor area can be utilized by adding some sort of island or work bench to the room.
A kitchen island instantly gives the home cook more counter space as well as a place to store extra pots, pans, and dishes. In the garage a work bench will do the same thing by providing a flat work space as well as storage for tools and materials. By placing caster wheels to the bottom of these islands and work benches you’ll find they become even more functional. The wheels allow them to easily be slid to the side when the extra floor space is needed. It also gives one the ability to move the structure to the most convenient spot depending on exactly what they are working on at the time. Using casters with brake levers allows the island to be locked in place so that it doesn’t roll around while you are trying to work on top of it. Casters can be found at your local home improvement retailer, hardware store, or online from merchants such as Access Casters Inc.
Once a work space is de-cluttered and organized it becomes a much more valuable space to any cook, crafter, or mechanic. The addition of islands, counter tops, and extra cabinets can make working in theses spaces much more efficient while saving you plenty of time and stress.
