Helpful Garage Storage Tips: How to Store Bikes in Your Garage to Make More Space for Your Rockford Area Home

Bikes typically occupy a significant amount of space. Here are some garage storage tips for keeping your bikes out of the way without taking up valuable storage space or causing a trip hazard in your garage. Save yourself some time and effort by moving the bikes out of the way before continuing.

If you can’t remember what’s in your garage right now, it’s time to go out and figure out how to make it more useful. Garages are full of pool toys, garden tools, kid’s belongings, bikes, fishing gear, holiday decorations and lights, items from last year’s graduation celebration, and more. Begin by emptying your belongings while analyzing them to see what you can keep, donate, or get rid of to decrease clutter.

When it comes to garage organization and storage, knowing what you have is critical. Create or install custom shelves with the help of a competent craftsperson to keep your belongings off the floor and out of the way. This will create a clear and easy-to-use zone as you walk to and from your vehicles every day. Label and sort your boxes so you know where everything is when you need it.

To fill the vacant wall space in your garage, you can use pegboards, shelves, hooks, and a variety of other items. Once you’ve got everything arranged and set up, it’s time to put the bike away. One of our favorite garage storage strategies for bikes is to get them off the ground and out of the way. To effortlessly hang your bike, install and secure hooks in the wall or ceiling, for example.

With these suggestions, your garage storage will be well-organized and simple to use. Hang your bike to save space on the floor and to have it close at hand. In your garage, custom shelving, hooks, and pegboards will open new options.
