One of the most useful space savers is a large garage. Garages are storage facilities, workspaces, and the home of your car and most of your outdoor gear. But not all of us are lucky enough to have a spacious three-car garage. If your garage is small and compact, you need to be extra mindful of how you use and organize that precious storage space. But with these tips from Closet and Storage Concepts of Las Vegas and Henderson, Nevada, even the smallest garages can pack a big organizational punch.
Make Use of Ceiling Space
One of the most underappreciated storage spaces available in your garage is overhead storage. Making use of ceiling space will ensure that there is no corner left unused. Ceiling storage is perfect for items that you don’t use regularly and need to be stored somewhere out of the way. Things like ladders or snow gear are well suited to this spot. You only need skis for one season out of the year, so keep them out of the way overhead!
Vertical Storage is Your Friend
Just like overhead space, the storage potential of garage walls is often over looked as well. Vertical storage is an excellent way to keep things off the floor but readily available all the same. Store more frequently used tools here. Things like rakes, shovels, shear, and other gardening tools are well suited to wall storage. For smaller items, pegboard is an ideal way to store things safely without taking up valuable surface area. You can hand small hand tools like trowels and hammers from pegboard and keep them easy to reach without using up your shelves.
Keep it Mobile
Mobile storage is a great way to make a workspace out of a small garage. Wheeled work benches can be stored out of site, but make for great workstations when needed. In small spaces you often have to move things around to find items or make room for things, so ensuring that everything in your small garage is mobile will make this task much easier.
