Elevate Your Spring Cleaning Game with Summit Portable Buildings

Spring in the Missouri area brings a breath of fresh air, with cherry blossoms and dogwoods blooming, and the gentle warmth returning after the winter chill. As nature rejuvenates, it’s the perfect time to follow suit and start the annual tradition of spring cleaning. This year, take your spring cleaning to the next level with the help of portable buildings. These versatile structures from Summit Portable Buildings offer unique solutions for decluttering and organizing your space. Here are five tips on how to use your portable building for your spring cleaning undertaking.

TIP# 1: Portable Workshop for Repairs and Refurbishments

Convert your portable building into a dedicated workshop space. Use it to repair and refurbish items that need a little extra attention after winter. A well-equipped workshop in your portable building can be a clean and organized space to refinish furniture, fix outdoor tools or mend garden equipment.

Design Ideas for a Portable Repair Area

1. Workbench Central: Install a sturdy workbench as the focal point of your repair area. Choose a spacious surface that allows for a variety of tasks like fixing small appliances or working on DIY projects. Ensure the workbench is well-lit.


2. Wall-mounted Tool Storage: Optimize vertical space by installing pegboards or slatwalls. Create an organized  and efficient layout by arranging tools by type and size.


3. Durable Flooring: Choose durable and easy-to-clean flooring for your repair space like epoxy flooring or rubber mats. These are a comfortable surface to stand on for extended periods and are resistant to spills and stains.


4. Storage Cabinets and Shelves: Integrate storage cabinets and shelves for organizing spare parts, supplies, and equipment. Use clear containers or label shelves to easily access what you need.


5. Ventilation and Air Circulation: Maintain a comfortable and safe working environment by installing exhaust fans or windows that can be opened to facilitate air circulation. Adequate ventilation is especially important when working with adhesives, paints, or other materials with strong odors.

TIP# 2: Seasonal Storage with Labeled Bins

Four Tips for Efficient Storage with Labeled Bins

1. Categorize and Prioritize: Categorize your belongings based on their type, use, or how frequently you need them. Prioritize items that you may need more frequently by placing them in bins that are easily accessible.


2. Clear and Consistent Labeling: Use clear and consistent labeling for quick and easy identification. Clearly state the contents on the uniform and visible labels using bold, legible text.


3. Invest in Durable, Stackable Bins: Choose durable, stackable bins to maximize vertical space. Opt for bins with sturdy lids that securely seal to protect items from dust, pests, and moisture.


4.Create a Master Inventory List: Keep track of the contents of each labeled bin by creating a master inventory list. Use a notebook or save them digitally.

TIP #3: Gardening Hub for Potting and Storage

Love gardening? Turn your portable building into a gardening hub. Create a designated area for potting plants, storing gardening tools, and organizing seeds. Utilize shelves and hooks to keep everything in order. The portable building provides a controlled environment where you can nurture your green thumb without making a mess inside your home.

Design Ideas for a Gardening Hub in Your Portable Building

1. Potting Bench with Sink: Install a dedicated potting bench with an easy-to-clean countertop and a sink. This provides a convenient space for repotting plants, washing hands, and handling soil on your gardening hub.



2. Vertical Gardening Wall: Incorporate a vertical gardening wall. Install shelves, hooks, or pockets for organizing small pots, gardening tools, and supplies. 



3. Seed Starting Station: Designate a section for seed starting. Install shelves or a small table where you can start seeds in trays or pots. Include a heat mat and adjustable shelving to make room for varying needs of different plant varieties.



4. Decorative Plant Display: Showcase your hard work and care! Create a decorative plant display using hanging planters, trellises, or wall-mounted shelves. 

TIP #4: Craft and Hobby Haven

If your spring cleaning includes decluttering excess crafting or hobby supplies, consider turning your portable building into a dedicated craft and hobby space. Install shelves, organizers, and workspace to sort through supplies, start new projects, or simply get inspired to create.

TIP #5: Temporary Storage for Sorting and Donating

Use your portable building as a temporary sorting and donation center. During spring cleaning, you may find items you no longer need. Instead of letting them pile up inside your home, designate a space in your portable building for sorting through belongings and preparing items for donation.

Spring cleaning is a rejuvenating process that prepares us for the brighter days ahead. With the help of Summit Portable Buildings, you can improve your annual spring cleaning and create a more organized and efficient living environment.
