Everything you need to become a garage storage pro
There’s nothing worse than looking for tools when you really need them. We will recommend the best storage accessories to make it a done deal.
TYPES OF GARAGE STORAGE
There's nothing like large cabinets to turn a cluttered room into an organized space. The garage storage cabinets are made of steel and will withstand the frequent temperature changes in this room. Most of the time, they offer double-walled lockable doors to keep tools safely and securely stored.
The cabinets are easy to assemble and require few tools.
Do-it-yourselfers and handy people have dreamt of it since childhood. No wonder, cupboards and steel cabinets stand tall in a workshop or garage! They are also practical for stocking large tool collections.
Most can be locked, many have multi-socket extension cords. Some even have USB charging ports.
The toolbox is the most common storage accessory for the do-it-yourselfer. Its lightweight structure allows you to take it with you wherever you go. Toolboxes are also appreciated for their great versatility and the many compartments they contain.
The removable tote tray keeps the most used tools close at hand.
To keep your small parts organized, a drawer organizer is ideal. In addition to its sturdy structure, the clear plastic drawers will allow you to quickly view the parts you need. Place the organizer on a workbench or hang it on the wall.
It is possible to stack several organizers, allowing you to create a complete and personalized storage.
A simple broom sweep is not enough. To make more space in your workshop or garage, it’s always simpler to start with a deep clean. Admit it, you may be due!
Start by making three piles:
A pile of items to keep;
A pile of items to throw away;
A pile of items to sell or give away.
Organize objects you’ll keep by their theme or according to the use you have for them. For example, gather all your Christmas decorations in the same area. The same thing goes for gardening equipment. You can then more easily identify your storage needs.
ORGANIZE THE SPACE OF THE CUPBOARD AND SHELVES
By installing shelves at the right places, you will have more space for your larger items such as drills, circular saws, watering hoses and other gardening equipment. Complete your organization with safety storage cabinets. These can keep items such as oils, paints and thinners outside of children’s reach.
REGROUP YOUR LEAST USED ITEMS IN STORAGE CONTAINERS
Some items only serve on rare occasions. Give a clean and organized look to your garage by storing them in transparent containers. These containers perfectly integrate underneath shelving and allow you to see what’s inside. They are even properly sealed, which will protect your things in case of flooding.
MAXIMIZE YOUR GARAGE WALL SPACE
Better than cluttering up your floor, make good use of your walls to store more items. Hooks and perforated walls are particularly practical to give you access to everything you need. The floor is yours; work with it!
IMPROVE YOUR WORK SPACE WITH STORAGE
Create a practical work space with the addition of garage cabinets. Store within them all the tools you use regularly. A few of these cabinets also have wood surfaces, which only helps in starting your projects.
