Helpful Tips for Upgrading Your Garage Storage

Keeping everything in your garage stored away, yet easily accessible, can be a challenge. Not only is the garage most people’s best resource for storing tools and other items, but it’s still probably where you keep your car(s) when not in use. In order to find the ideal solution to the dilemma of garage storage, here are some helpful hints which should help.

Assemble a Plan

Your greatest enemy to an orderly garage is disorganized clutter. Too often homeowners will just throw things in their garage without a lot of forethought. If you’re going to rethink your garage storage, you’re going to need a plan. Try to keep similar items (like gardening tools) together for easy access. If there are some things you use all the time, store them near the garage door. Put the things you’re likely to use the least in the hardest to reach spots.

Purchase Some Necessities

Sometimes the best storage solutions are the simplest. Purchase plenty of stackable plastic bins — ideally, made of clear plastic so you can see the contents. Clear jars are helpful for storing small tools and other items, and portable label makers are a blessing for those with sloppy handwriting.

Install Shelves

Having adequate shelf space is essential if you’re going to rely on your garage storage. Depending on your requirements, you could hire craftsmen to install custom built-in shelves, or you could opt for less expensive alternatives. Shelves are usually a better use of your space than cabinets, but cabinets can be helpful if you have items that need to be protected from dust.

Consider a Pegboard

Pegboards are among the simplest and most efficient choices when it comes to garage storage. They can be cut to the desired size, and the grid-style design facilitates the organization process. Fasten your pegboard to exposed studs if you have them. If not, you can build your own frame for support.

When it comes to garage storage, there are a lot of things you can do on your own. If you could use a little extra help, don’t hesitate to contact the skilled craftsmen at Handyman Connection of Marietta, GA. Give us a call today!
