Whether you are moving into a new home or you’ve finally decided to organize your garage after being fed up with the lack of storage space, there are many ways to create additional garage storage space. This way you can store more in a private location so that all of your unused appliances are out of sight but available whenever you’ll need them. Here is how to de-clutter your 2 car garage once and for all!
Garage Storage Tip: Coat hangers
If you don’t have a coat hanger somewhere in your garage, you’re storing things the wrong way. Coat hangers are perfect for hanging extension cords, power cords, winter clothes, and hanging baskets to store more things without taking up floor space. You can also use hangers to store brooms and mops sideways which keeps them out of dusty corners.
Once again, if you’re serious about garage storage, garage shelving installation should be the first thing you look into adding. Shelving allows you to not only store appliances, tool boxes, tackle boxes, and paint cans, but also the boxes that appliances come in that you want to keep for future convenience. Several layers of shelving will help organize your garage in no time.
For those of you who are capable of using hammers, nails, screwdrivers, electric equipment, saws, and other maintenance tools, a workbench is a must. By building your own workbench, you can not only store things underneath a workbench table, but you can also find a place for your tools. Installing a magnetic tool bar is great for hanging metal tools and having a bench will also declare more independent space for you to work on things in your free time.
If not shelving, consider installing a slat wall or individual hangers that will allow you to store bigger appliances and keep them out of the way of your vehicles. These are essential for hanging bikes, helmets, hoses, golfing equipment, tennis racquets, and more. Using your ceiling as storage also keeps the ground clear hangs certain items high enough to make room for lower storage as well.
