16 Mar Create More Space in the Garage
Did you know that those of us who have a garage spend one to two hours each week inside the garage doing hobbies or other activities? It also tends to be the place where we stash all the ‘extra’ things we can’t find room for in the house. Some of us even manage to park a car or two in there. Because the garage is such an essential part of the home, you should utilize every bit of space it provides. Thanks to the experts at Closets by Design, we can help you create more space in the garage.
Here are a few of our favorite ideas.
Create More Space in the Garage with Custom Cabinets
Adding custom cabinets can create more space in the garage by increasing the storage potential from floor to ceiling. Garage cabinets aren’t just any cabinet. They are made from a durable material designed to withstand the temperature fluctuations and storage challenges that come with a garage.
A Closets by Design professional will measure your space precisely and help you determine which units will suit your storage needs best. You can choose exposed shelves and cubbies for your most frequently used items or place your shelving behind doors to hide any unsightly items. Pull-out trays Slatwall with various accessories are perfect for assuring easy access to tools and sliding wire baskets are a great spot to toss tape, glue, and other small items. Extra deep upper cabinets provide an out-of-the-way place to stow seasonal items, such as holiday decorations or camping gear. Our garage cabinets offer so many storage possibilities it’s best to work with a design expert so they can assess your needs and provide the best solution.
Include a Workstation
If you enjoy tinkering in your garage, then you’ll definitely want to add a functional workbench. Closets by Design has multiple options. A workbench can create more space in the garage by providing a simple but elegant place to repot plants or rewire a lamp. And if you don’t like working in one place, add a pull-out island on wheels. This innovative feature saves on space because it fits below the counter, but it comes with drawers and a countertop so you can roll your supplies and your workstation anywhere in the garage.
Utilize Wall Space
Vertical space often gets overlooked, but with the right wall organizing system, you can easily create more space in the garage and maximize your storage potential. With Designwall™ from Closets by Design, an entire wall (or a designated portion) is fitted with panels that secure lock-in hooks, shelves, baskets, and more. Get bulky items off the garage floor with wall mounts designed specifically for bikes, skis, and other sports accessories. Specialized hooks allow you to hang your shovel, rake, and hoe and store your garden hose and outdoor extension cord in neat coils. You can mix and match various sizes of wire baskets and shelves, and with several types of bins to choose from, you can find the perfect containers for all of your screws and nails. In fact, you’ll probably be surprised by just how many things you can hang on one wall.
