Garages: The Next Frontier For Home Organization

BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich., Sept. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Between sports equipment, bikes, camping gear, and gardening tools, the garage can be a hub of activity for the entire family, yet one of the most chaotic and disorganized spaces in a home.

"The garage has traditionally been relegated to mismatched storage bins, overflowing shelves and bursting lawn bags, resulting in chaos and no real organization," said Janice Jones, vice president of merchandising for Pulte Homes. "Our customers have told us that they want better home storage solutions and expanded space in the garage. Just like mudrooms and master closets, it makes perfect sense to make the garage a cleaner and more organized space."

According to a consumer study conducted by Gladiator® GarageWorks, 62 percent of those surveyed said the garage is the storage area of the home they would most like to resolve. Other studies have shown that homeowners rate the garage as the most disorganized place in the house and a place the entire family uses regularly.

As a result, Pulte Homes' communities across the nation are partnering with Gladiator ® GarageWorks with upgrade packages for new homeowners who want the perfect solution to keep their tools, hobbies and home care equipment organized and out of the way. Gladiator GarageWorks gives homeowners flexibility with a mix-and-match system, including workbenches, cabinets and wall systems, and puts belongings a practical place while freeing up the garage for other activities.

"We understand the multiple demands placed on garage spaces today and through our partnership with GarageWorks, we're responding to prospective homeowners who have told us they need more control over their next garage," Jones said.

Jones further added that expanded garage space is just one of the many offerings of Pulte Homes' Life Tested™ homes, which are designed and built to meet the needs of today's modern families. Other Life Tested™ design features included expanded laundry rooms, the Pulte Planning Center™ and flexible living spaces.
