Ultimate Garage Organization

In the Garage
Modular systems make organizing sporting gear and yard equipment a breeze in this garage. Take a look at this organized space and discover how to employ smart storage strategies in your own garage.

Hanging Storage

To fully equip this garage for all of its many roles, the space was divided into specific functional zones, employing several popular storage solutions, such as wall- or ceiling-hung solutions. Not only do they take up less space, but they also require you to designate specific spots for each item. A wall-hung storage system in this garage organizes a mountain of sporting equipment in a slim space and keeps the floor clear of clutter. Movable baskets, bins, and shelves attach to heavy-duty horizontal brackets on the wall and can be repositioned according to need. (This system is by Gladiator Garage Works.)


Balls, rackets, water toys, golf clubs, and shoes are all stored in plain sight, making it easy to locate items and put them away. Golf caddies support the weight of two full golf bags and several pairs of shoes. The units also feature clever brackets to hold extra golf balls.

Bike Zone

A combination of wall-mount brackets and floor racks keeps bicycles and other playtime gear from cluttering up floor space and toppling over. Conveniently placed hooks ensure each item is within reach for every family member.

A Spot to Grow

Gardening supplies fill modular cabinets on an open wall. Counter-height shelving and drawers form a surface that can be used for potting plants or general puttering. A floor rack keeps large tools in check, while small tools hang from sliding clips on a slatted wall panel.

Storage-Packed Space

Your garage is one of the largest rooms in your house, so it's important to adopt a flexible storage system that allows access to your most important items. This garage sorts supplies according to use so there's never any doubt where to look.

One-Stop Snack Spot

A compact snack and beverage center constructed from galvanized steel cabinets is ideal for busy kids who can grab-and-go while outside playing or on the way out of the house. Heavy-duty casters allow the entire lower portion to roll to the patio for outdoor entertaining.

Snack Away

Conveniently located next to the fridge and freezer, the snack station organizes everything from bulk foods and supplies to drinks and snacks. Wire baskets equipped with clip-on labels organize foods by type and make it easy for small hands to find what they’re looking for.

Convenience At Hand

Wall brackets below the snack station’s upper cabinets keep paper goods and bottler openers within arm’s reach. The bottle openers can also be moved to easily accommodate entertaining on the nearby patio.

Frozen Storage

Conveniently located next to the snack station, a spare refrigerator and freezer house overflow of perishable and frozen foods from the home’s kitchen. The freezer is outfitted with labeled containers and metal bins, making the search for needed items a breeze and reducing unwanted clutter.

Simple Sorting

Stacked bins create a convenient recycling station next to the door to the house and keep aluminum cans, paper, and plastic separate. An elevated wire shelf air-dries soggy shoes and boots, while ensuring that they don't clutter the floor space in front of the entry door.
