The dictionary defines “garage” as a building for housing a motor vehicle or vehicles. Then why do so many people park their cars outside in the driveway and exposed to the elements? The answer is simple: there’s no room in the garage.
That space is cluttered with seasonal gear, garden tools and products, bicycles, ladders, cleaning agents, power cords, hoses and sports equipment, among other dozens of other things. Even if a vehicle can be squeezed in, wading through the mess can be a dispiriting experience.
Truth be told, there is a range of effective storage solutions that can transform your garage into a functional, organized place – one that won’t make you shudder every time you enter.
But before making any storage decisions, you should appraise the situation first and take inventory.
Now that you have a rough idea of what should go where, check out the storage systems that will serve your needs best.
A custom slat wall will let you make the most out of your space; with accessories like hooks, brackets, baskets, bins and shelves, much of what’s cluttering your garage will end up neatly on the wall where you can find it easily – from lawn chairs to ladders.
Built-in cabinets are one of the best ways to organize because, with cupboards and drawers, you can close them for a cleaner, neater look. Out of sight, out of mind. Whether they’re free-standing or modular, cabinets can hold a wide variety of materials, like garden and cleaning products, small tools and so on.
Consider tower lockers for golf and hockey bags and other tall items. A sturdy wall-mounted track can accommodate racks or wire shelving, which frees up floor space. Overhead storage is yet another option, with shelves suspended from the ceiling. Once again, the more you store out of the way, the more room you’ll have in the garage.
Even a workshop is within the realm of possibilities. With a bench and cabinets for storing tools, the humble garage becomes more functional.
