If you're looking to organize and store items in your garage, then you need to have a plan. The last thing you want to do is not have enough room to park your own vehicle in your garage.
Here are the five most popular garage storage hacks that will allow you to make the most out of your garage:
One of the easiest ways to store a large number of items in your garage is by installing shelving. The good news is that shelving systems are easy to assemble. A good shelving organization tip is to put the heaviest items on the bottom. This will lower the center of gravity of the shelf. Also, you'll be able to easily access the heaviest items. You can find garage shelving systems at most home improvement stores.
If you want some flexibility, then you will want to get a number of plastic storage bins. You'll be able to store large and small items in these bins. Also, you will be able to store these bins in a number of different ways. You can find storage bins at home improvement stores, at online stores and at box stores.
If you want to dedicate most of your garage space for your vehicles, then you may be pressed for space. However, you can actually store items above your vehicles with the use of ceiling storage racks. These racks are mounted from the ceiling and can hold a number of items. It'll take some expertise to install the ceiling rack, but it will be well worth the time for this garage storage hack.
If you're looking to store your bicycles or other heavy items, you can use peg boards to store a number of items on your wall. First, install the pegboard on your garage wall. From there, you can install racks that will allow you to hang any number of items.
Wall Mounted Storage Cabinets
With wall mounted storage cabinets, you'll be able to secure items of all sizes. You will also be able to better organize your items while keeping your garage looking neat and clean. Wall mounted storage cabinets may require professional installation; however, it will be well worth the investment.
By using the right garage storage hacks, you will be able to properly organize one of the largest spaces in your home. Consider what you need to store before planning your storage strategy. Finally, consider combining one or more storage hacks to make the best use of your garage space. If you have a car port, but not a garage, you should use these hacks as an incentive to transform your space with garage builders. Your home will look better, and you'll be able to use all these space-saving techniques to declutter your home.
