Shelving Options

When dealing with garage storage needs, you have several options. You can build simple shelving from plywood and 2x4 lumber, or you can buy ready-to-assemble shelving in many styles and sizes. Shelf systems are also available at home centers or from companies that specialize in storage systems, many offering custom design options. The determining factors for your selection often come down to the type of storage you need, the space you have, and cost.

Make a List

Consider what you will be storing. Will it be tools or oddly shaped items? Will it be mostly items in boxes? Boxes can stack neatly on most standard shelf designs, but odd items (think shovels, garden hoses, sports equipment) often require hanging storage, such as a pegboard or wall hooks.

Work with Available Space

Does your garage have tall ceilings? If so, take advantage of that space. If your shelving is mounted on the walls, you won't have to sacrifice floor space. Bicycles can be suspended from the ceiling or hung on the wall using specially designed hardware.

Do Your Research

You will find a lot of ideas for storage solutions at home centers, lumberyards, or online. Many books are also devoted to the topic. Whatever system you decide to use, make sure it is strong enough to support the loads that will be placed on it. If you use freestanding shelving, anchor it to the wall so it won't tip over.
