Home Improvement Storage Solutions For Your Garage

Home ImprovementThe reason you found this article is probably because you are planning for a home improvement project to organize your garage. If you have many things including power tools and you or another family member continues to buy more stuff, and you find that your garage is easily filled with clutter. Does it seem like you’re unable to control it?

Don’t lose hope because there is still something you can do. Make a garage improvement plan that includes organizing everything that you store in your garage. Your garage is not a storage room so you may want to spend time looking through everything inside your garage to actually make room for your car.

Here are some quick and easy home improvement storage solutions that you can implement to your garage:

1. Wall shelves
If you have extra shelves that you have installed in your kitchen, consider installing these to your garage walls as well. Don’t forget to measure how much space you need for your car – including additional space for you to move around your car – before you install the shelves. If you own one car and have a large garage, consider the possibility of having another car in the garage, which could happen when your friends come over and spend the night or the weekend at your house.

2. Bike racks
To maximize the available space in your garage, opt to hang your bikes instead of parking them beside your car. Plus, this also ensures your car is free of scratches and dents caused by kids improperly storing their bikes in the garage. There are various bike racks that you can choose from depending on the type and number of bikes you and your family owns.

3. Work bench and pegs
If your garage also serves as your workshop, assign a specific side of the garage for your workshop. You can add a work bench and install pegs on the wall where you can hang your work tools.

4. Cabinets
For a cleaner and neater look, install cabinets on the walls instead of open shelves. This type of storage solution is perfect if other members of your family also store their things and tools in the garage. You can have one cabinet for each member of the family. You can also have one cabinet for everything that you store in the garage. So instead of using boxes, you’ll have a cleaner garage that looks more organized by installing cabinets.

5. Ceiling storage
For those who have garages with high ceilings, you can opt to have a ceiling storage installed. Speak with a home improvement professional for recommendations and ideas for the most suitable ceiling storage for your garage.
