Your garage is home for many of your belongings, whether they be mementos or seasonal items that you only use a few times a year. When the garage starts to get cluttered, it can seem like an insurmountable task to find anything. Inefficient storage can also damage your belongings, so we’re taking a look at some smart storage solutions for your garage.
Garages have plenty of wall space, and they usually have high enough ceilings to give you room for flexible storage solutions. A wall-mounted shelving system will help you bring your boxes of belongings off the ground, protecting them against mould, mildew and floods. Plus, it’s much easier to find and access items when they aren’t stacked directly on top of each other.
There are some items that simply won’t fit comfortably in your shelves, including gardening equipment like rakes and leaf blowers. In these cases, you can install a track system that extends to whatever length you desire with adequate hooks to hang everything you need and get these expensive pieces of equipment off the floor.
Smart storage is all about organising items into groups and having the right sized containers to keep them in. Create toolkits out of divided containers and properly labelled toolboxes. You can arrange your belongings by size or by usage, for example, gardening equipment in one box and electrical supplies in another.
Spend one day organising everything you have in the garage and you may never have to do it again. The result will look amazing and minimise your risk of future headaches and wasted time.
It’s rarely possible to have everything in your garage within arm’s reach. When you need to choose what goes where, place the items you use regularly at a lower height and keep the seasonal items higher. This will also ensure your family is safer, because they aren’t pulling things off high shelves on a regular basis. Invest in a high-quality step ladder for additional safety.
When you need to make the most of limited space, you don’t want to lose room to the garage door. The most efficient style of door for saving space is widely considered to be the roller garage door because it only requires minimal headroom above the door to open. You’ll be able to take advantage of the rest of the ceiling as storage space when you install one of these garage doors.
With brand-new technology and safety features, you’ll be able to protect your belongings in the garage against inclement weather, theft and damage.
