Maximizing Storage Space

Utilizing corner shelves and wall-mounted racks is an efficient way to maximize storage space in the garage. By taking advantage of vertical storage, we can make the most of every inch in our clean garage.

Installing overhead storage racks and pegboards not only keeps items off the floor but also creates more usable space for our belongings. For efficient organization and easy access, stackable clear-plastic bins with lids work wonders.

Opting for open shelves over closed cabinets guarantees that frequently used items are within reach, promoting a sense of belonging when everything has its place. To further optimize storage, consider using track-based systems or panelized systems to capitalize on vertical space for organized storage solutions.

With these strategies in place, our garage won’t only be clean and organized but also a functional and welcoming space for all our storage needs.

Gabriel J. Letizia, Ph.D

“Dear Haim,
It has been so very busy here, thank God, that I never had the chance to formally thank you for the absolutely beautiful job you and your team did with our rugs and sofa. I know when a job is superior and such is the case, much to my surprise, upon entering the apartment after you completed the work.

Thank you again – you will ever be our service provider etc…“

Sunlight Customer, Oriental Rug Cleaning

A few weeks ago, I had Haim Shemesh clean my sofa & I was very pleased. He was professional, the price was reasonable & my sofa looks brand new again!

Sunlight Customer, Oriental Rug Cleaning

I had Haim Shemesh from Sunlight clean all my area rugs. He did a fabulous job! They are all handmade Orientals and he took them to a place that soaks them in a tub and hand washes them the way it’s supposed to be done. They look so much better and brighter Haim came to my apt to give me an estimate, took the rugs, then delivered them back to me a week later. He even helped me set them back up, including moving furniture around to do so. Prices were very reasonable. I highly recommend doing business with him!
