Garage Storage and Organization Buying Guide

Is there one spot in your house or yard that never seems to get organized? Many homeowners would probably say it's the garage. It's hard to keep on top of all that stuff, from garden gear to sports equipment. Fortunately, garage storage and organization pieces can help.

Types of Garage Storage and Organization

Like many rooms in your home, your garage has to function on a number of levels. Of course, it's a place to park your cars, but it also probably serves as a storage area for lawnmowers and garden tools, homekeeping items such as drills and saws, and kid necessities including all manner of sports balls and equipment. If your garage is bursting at the seams—or even if you just want to take a fresh look at what you have and how you keep track of it—turn to garage storage and organization pieces, including bike racks and stands, gas cans, shelving, storage cabinets, storage systems, tool storage, wall racks, and workbenches.

Bike Racks and Stands

Bike racks run the gamut, from floor versions that hold bikes in upright positions, to ceiling suspension units that turn bikes upside down, and even wall systems that stash bikes vertically.

Gas Cans

Gas cans should be created specifically for that use; it's never OK to repurpose a container to hold flammable liquid. A gas can should have a lid and a spout that enables you to safely distribute fuel when needed.

Shelving

Garage shelving should be durable and flexible, and it can range from wood shelves to open metal units. Shelves may be stackable or stand-alone, and can rest on the floor of the garage or hang on the walls.

Product Features

Product Features

Whether you're the tidiest homeowner or you don't mind a bit of mess now and again, you can get great joy and convenience out of garage storage and organization pieces. They can help you keep tools in tip-top shape, help your kids easily find their favorite toys and equipment, and stash out-of-season items safely and securely. As you decide on the types of items you want and need, think about the product features that may influence how well they work in your garage. Those include storage capacity, installation method, and flexibility.

Storage Capacity

Before you purchase any garage storage and organization tools, review what you have. There should be room for everything in your existing collection, as well as open space in your garage.

Installation Method

Garage storage and organization pieces install in a variety of ways. Some simply rest on the ground—perfect for folks who don't like to work with tools. Others need to be hung and secured permanently to the structure of your garage.

Flexibility

Dedicated garage storage and organization pieces are great, but if there's only one use for a piece or one item that can be stored with it, then you may find yourself with a logistical nightmare. It's best to choose pieces that can hold a variety of items.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Compared to just a few years ago, garage storage and organization pieces come in so many options, which can make choosing what works best overwhelming. Once you sort through types and product features, it's important to also consider key factors in your purchase that will ensure you're not replacing items from year to year. Those include durability, expandability, and material. Use this short guide to help along the way.

Durability

Anything that spends its life cycle in the garage will, by its nature, be subject to dirt and grime, as well as wear and tear. The garage storage and organization pieces you choose should be durable enough to withstand the outdoors without cracking or breaking.

Expandability

The best storage and organization systems for any space—garage and elsewhere—are those that can grow as your needs change. Perhaps your interest in gardening expands, and more shelf or work space is required. Leave yourself a little breathing room in your garage, and understand how various storage components may work together well—or not at all.

Material

The best garage storage and organization pieces should be made of materials such as metal, heavy-duty plastic, or wood that can take a beating from outdoor elements, dirty tools, or playful kids.
