A garage is an optimal place to organize and store not only garage gear but also off-season belongings. This space recruits a variety of storage options, such as a freestanding shelving unit to hold things like cleaning supplies and dog food and a pegboard for tools to maintain a sense of order. A wooden shelf was installed over the door to tuck away seasonal supplies.
Storing boots, bins, soil, and watering cans upright on adjustable shelves frees up space and eliminates clutter on the floor. With adjustable shelving, it's easy to make room for different-size objects as your storage needs change. Simply remount the shelves at different heights to accommodate new items.
Add a bit of color to your garage storage. Paint squares on a pegboard to designate spots for specific items. Hang the pegboard on wall stud and equip it with bins for an innovative storage system. The sideways bins stow often-used accessories that are not easily hung from hooks, such as gardening gloves and hose nozzles. Mount a large bucket to the pegboard for a modern take on a hose reel to boost function.
Here's a new job for a trash can: Use the sturdy containers to store messy things such as birdseed, sand, or salt. Place a cup inside for easy measuring. Print letters onto magnetic paper, cut out the letters, and use to label the cans.
Cohesive and functional, these plastic bins are a practical way to bring organization into your garage. They simply click into place along a slatted wall. Transforming the unused space beneath a cabinet into a neat row of bins for regularly used items, such as seed packets, pliers, and painter's tape, means never having to search for small items again.
Take a tip from your kitchen and use spice containers in your garage. The petite canisters are perfect for organizing screws, nails, and washers. The clear lids also make it easy to see what's inside, which saves time when you're looking for the right object. Mount a magnetic panel to a pegboard to hold the canisters when not in use.
Simple modifications helped transform a potting bench into a fully equipped workstation. Large holes routed into a shelf now offer storage for everyday tools. A metal ruler screwed to the bench top is always ready for a quick measurement. Jars, hooks, and magnetic clips provide easy access to tools and workshop necessities.
These general-purpose hooks can secure the most unwieldy tools without consuming too much coveted wall space. Mount hooks to a channeled panel with enough room in between to avoid creating clutter or knocking handles.
Easy-to-install screwdriver racks keep tools in order. Select a design that displays the tool tips so you may easily identify items at a glance.
