An organized garage makes for a more pleasant summer, as well as more efficient management of activities year round. Having easy access to your tools, sports equipment, landscaping items, and other belongings simply makes life easier across the board. Use these garage storage ideas and methods from Closet & Storage Concepts of Las Vegas to achieve a truly customized garage experience.
One of the secrets to an organized garage is clearing as much floor space as possible. Maximize floor space by hanging as many items on the walls or from the ceiling as possible. Rank items from the most frequently used to the least frequently used when deciding where tools, sporting equipment, and other items should be hung. Keep popular items more accessible and easy to reach.
Garden Tool Storage
Many large garden tools, like rakes, shovels, hoes, and weed eaters, seem to take up more space than they should. A simple rack with a variety of holes and slots can allow you to store them upright in a way that maximizes your available space.
Another possibility for garden tools that only get used on occasion is to create a designated enclosed closet storage space with appropriate sized bins and shelving. This allows you to keep these smaller items organized and out of sight when not in use.
Maximizing Vertical Storage
Choose shelving that maximizes the use of floor-to-ceiling areas to help make the most of your garage space. Adding covered, labeled bins on each shelf allows for a more organized and uniform look in your Las Vegas garage. For tight or unique spaces, custom garage storage solutions can help with optimal garage organization. Custom designs can be ideal for any garage because they are made specifically for the needs and lifestyle of each homeowner.
Under-Shelf Containers for Small Items
Attaching the lids of screw-top jars or other storage containers beneath a flat surface, such as a workbench or shelf, creates an ideal place to store loose items, such as nails, screws, bolts, washers, and other items that come in multiples. This method is highly space saving while also helping you keep track of those easy-to-lose pieces.
Rafters and Ceiling Storage
Make the most of the area above the garage rafters by installing plywood to create an attic-type space. This area is ideal for storing seasonal items. In addition to above the rafters, bins can be hung just below the rafters for even more storage space.
Simple pegboards with correlating hanging hooks are an easy, all-purpose way to store a variety of items. From hand tools to small gardening instruments, pegboards allow you to keep things organized while also creating a neat display and easy access.
An organized garage is a luxury few people take the time to create. However, with a custom garage storage system, you’ll get the perfect solution for staying organized year round. Call Closet & Storage Concepts of Las Vegas today to schedule a free in-home consultation!
