Is your garage packed to the point where you can no longer fit your car inside or find anything you need? Then it’s definitely time to organize it! To help you get started, here are five essential garage storage ideas that will get your garage back to being a clean and functioning space.
Vertical Wall Shelving
Vertical wall shelving is a convenient way to add more space while organizing your garage. By using the wall space to store your tools and accessories, you can remove any items that are currently overtaking your floor or workbench. It’s also an excellent way to tidy up your garage and have everything you need all in one area.
Overhead Storage Racks
If you have a number of rarely used or seasonal tools cluttering your garage space, you can efficiently store these on overhead storage racks. This puts items within reach but doesn’t compromise your shelving or wall space that is better suited for frequently used items. And by dividing your drill bits and tool accessories into smaller storage containers with labels, you can stack a number of them on top of each other to free up even more space.
Fitted Wall Cabinets
When you’re looking for a way to keep your garage items out of sight and out of mind, we suggest adding a few fitted wall cabinets to your space. Not only will cabinets help to better organize your belongings, but they can keep everything nicely hidden behind the doors for a cleaner looking garage. And what’s also great about cabinets is there are a wide variety of styles to choose from, such as metal storage cabinets or natural wood materials so you can match your home design and style.
Tracks With Hooks
Larger items like extension cords, shovels, rakes, bikes and pool equipment are often difficult to store in a small garage space. But when you install hanging tracks on the wall, you can easily store all of your bulkier items. The hooks also make it easy to move things around as the seasons change so you can swap out items as you need them.
Having only one garage can be frustrating when you need to store two cars, a motorcycle or even a boat. So why not install a car lift? They may be a little on the expensive side, but they are still much less than building a second car garage. Plus, the lift allows you to park another car or vehicle in the garage at the same time, which makes all the difference when you have limited room.
