Your home is your haven. Does that tranquility begin the moment you open the garage door or does the mess add to your stress? Don't let a disorderly garage alter your positive energy. Transform this unruly space into your favorite place with these clever storage tips.
keep items elevated
Garages tend to get damp and dirty easily, so storing items up and off the floor can keep them dry and protected from this tough environment. Hanging garage cabinets allow for easy sweeping and cleaning underneath, while full back panels help reduce the collection of dust and dirt inside.
designate a drop zone
Use a storage bench or counter as a place to prop groceries while unlocking the door. A bench also serves as a handy perch for pulling on shoes. Hooks and baskets keep everyday items at the ready: dog leash, jackets, keys, and backpacks.
utilize every square inch
Filling the full height of your wall with tall storage cabinets maximizes the available space. Seldom-used, bulky items such as seasonal decorations, coolers, and camping supplies can be stowed up high and out of the way on sturdy adjustable shelves.
a clean place for everything
Your stuff stays concealed behind closed doors but what keep it clean are the features inside. Baskets and drawers fully extend so it's simple to put away sports equipment, kids' toys, tools, gloves and more. Bright white cabinet interior makes it easier to see and find what you need in a jiffy.
make it work with a wall system
Tight areas, typically the sides adjacent to the cars, are space-challenged so a slat wall system or shallow storage works well here. You can hang hoses, garden tools, rakes, brooms or other tall, slender items in this area. Snap and lock racks, hooks and baskets can be easily moved for rearranging your garage gear.
