Organize Garage Custom Storage ModestoDo you find yourself moving your car to the driveway or adding clutter to your home when you want to use your garage as a workroom or gathering place? Don’t let summer heat or even a rainy day trap you indoors. With the right organizational tactics, you can use space in your garage to park, store gear, and enjoy a shaded work or play room. We are dedicated to finding the best organizational solutions for any home and will gladly work with you to make more room for your life.

Store more in your garage and still have room to gather and get things done with these garage-space maximization tips:

1. Think in three dimensions: Many cars are less than five feet tall and most garage ceilings are at least eight or nine feet high. You can hang hooks from the ceiling to store some gear over your garage parking spaces. Consider using these hooks for some relatively large items that you don’t use on a daily basis. For instance, you could store a kayak or spare luggage right over your vehicle to keep these items out of the way but still accessible.

You will benefit from having a versatile and flexible storage system that you can modify whenever your kid’s hobbies change. For example, you could mix and match such handy storage accessories as bins and hooks for items like your garden hose and tools, sports equipment, and more.

3. Build in more functionality: If you’d like to use your garage as a workroom, playroom, or even summer party venue, go ahead and build in wall-mounted tables or desks. They won’t take up much space, can come with drawers to provide even more storage, and you won’t need to waste time setting them up for use.
