As people spend more time in their garages, whether using them as workshops or expanded playrooms for children, the need to organize this space grows ... almost as quickly as the clutter. We can show you how to clear the clutter and even make enough room in the garage for the family car. All you need are the right storage solutions and a little motivation.
Garage shelving makes use of the space you have in the vertical plane and helps get your stored items off the floor. Storing items vertically can save a lot of your valuable floor space, increase your garage's overall storage capacity and provide a safer, more productive work area.Garage shelving has come a long way in the past several years. You can still build your own shelves from dimensional lumber and plywood, but now you also have many other options from which to choose:
Another option is to use heavy, metal shelving brackets attached to your walls to support dimensional lumber, MDF or plywood shelves.
Utility cabinets are available in resin, metal and wood/wood composite materials. They are a convenient way to store items behind doors and out of sight. Some even offer lockable doors to keep curious little ones from accessing sharp tools or dangerous household chemicals.
Peg hooks are a versatile method of shop and garage storage. You can easily move the hooks around and adjust them as your storage needs change. See our instructions for information on building your pegboard.
There are many types of hooks and hangers available. Simply secure the hook to a wall stud or ceiling rafter and you can store anything from ladders and hoses to bicycles, depending on the type of hanger you choose.
