Custom Garage Storage North Carolina

At Closet & Storage Concepts of Charlotte, NC we know that a garage is so much more than a place to park your car at night. A garage can double as a place to repair items, store bulky or off-season belongings, or even accomplish some DIY projects.

Here are 5 features we recommend to maximize your space and get the fully functioning custom garage you deserve. 

Lots of Light

No one likes a dark, dank garage. A well-lit garage is warmer and more welcoming. Families spend time in the garage every morning, evening, and sometimes throughout the day. If more or better lights are installed, your garage will no longer be a place to dread going into.

A Smart Workstation

This means wall mounts for some tools, a toolbox for others, and a place to keep other items to work on your car and fix things around the house. A well-stocked and organized workstation should have a workbench along with everything else needed, such as power tools, a flashlight, or a car battery charger.

A Second Refrigerator

The refrigerator found in every home can get pretty jam-packed, especially with big families! A second refrigerator or freezer is a great place to keep extra frozen meals, water bottles, drinks for guests, and holiday leftovers.

A Fire Extinguisher

As always, it’s a good idea to practice safety! Every home should have at least one fire extinguisher. Under the kitchen sink and in the garage are both good places to keep one. An extra first aid kit is another thing that can be kept in the garage, just in case of emergencies. Custom garage cabinetry Charlotte, NC

Proper Storage

At its best, a garage can be another beautiful room in your Charlotte, NC home. At its worst, a garage can become a cluttered mess where you can’t find anything you’re looking for. So proper storage is a must! When every item stored in the garage is clearly labeled and has a place to go, it’ll make finding the one thing you need so much easier. It will also help keep sports equipment or tools out of the way so you can actually park your car inside!
