Looking to organize your garage?
Here are some of our favorite garage storage solutions.
Magnetic Tool Holders: You might already have one of these in your kitchen. Magnetic tool holders, such as this one here, are great for storing hand tools within arm’s reach. No more digging through a tool box to find what you need.
Shoe Storage: The garage door is often a family’s main entrance into their home. If you have a strict “no shoes” policy, a shoe organizer with or without built-in seating, is a great way to stop the pileup of shoes outside your main door.
Overhead Storage: Suspended shelving just above your vehicles or the door itself provides out-of-the-way storage space. Use these shelves to store items you rarely need to access such as holiday decorations.
Shelving Units: To get the most out of your garage, it is worth investing in some high-quality, sturdy shelving units from your local home improvement or warehouse store. Assembled just like a bookcase, shelving units are a good choice for items you frequently need to access, such as lawn chairs and sporting goods.
DIY Recycle Bin Hangers: Keep your home recycle bins from taking up valuable floor space with just a few pieces of scrap wood. This project also makes remove each bin a breeze compared to when they’re stacked on one another. For step-by-step instructions, click here.
Peg Boards: Peg boards are a great option for garage storage. These relatively inexpensive wall boards allow you to store your tools both vertically and horizontally. Hooks and small bins can be purchased for storing power tools, hardware, and materials.
Cabinetry: Cabinets, drawers, and shelves purchased from your local home improvement store make it easy to keep everything tidy. Look for storage that stands on legs to avoid any potential water or rodent issues.
