There is just no limit to the accessories you can buy, and many of these are priced well below ten dollars. This is one of the biggest advantages of using pegboards to organize you garage. You just need to secure them to the studs in your wall, and have a little bit of space between the wall and the board to allow the hook part to extend to the backside of the board.
Parking Guide: It’s not uncommon to find an assortment of parking scratches and bruises in residential garages. One of the most popular remedies is the old tennis ball on a string hanging from the ceiling trick. This is a time tested remedy that works, but there are also modern solutions as well. Enter laser and proximity parking guides. Laser guides typically attach to the ceiling on or near the garage door opener. When the door is opened, the laser is activated and lights up a beam. All you have to do is line up the beam to a particular spot on your dashboard when your vehicle is already parked. Then, each time you pull in, let the preset beam show you where to stop. You can get just a single laser or a dual-laser depending on the needs of your garage. Proximity sensors, unlike lasers, mount on the wall you approach when you park in your garage. With these, you simply preset the distance between your bumper and the sensor. Then, as you approach, the sensor will tell you when to stop. Some models even act like a stoplight, with a yellow caution lamp, followed by a red stop lamp.
One of my hobbies is tinkering on old cars in my garage. To me there’s nothing more relaxing than getting under the hood of what someone else considers a ”piece of junk” and doing my thing to make it run again. I’m not quite at the point where I can say that I restore classic cars, but that’s definitely my goal someday. It takes money to get into that game, though, so for now I just practice on old beaters that I find for a couple hundred bucks each. Once I get the vehicles running again, I can usually find a buyer and recoup my costs.
For a car owner the garage is one of the most important corners in the house. Cars have always been special for the owners and to keep it safe is a major concern. Also many people find it convenient to utilise the garage as a space to work on various projects. All the tools and materials that are required for any project can be systematically stored in there. This enables maintaining the aesthetics of the house as various equipments aren’t lying around here and there. However things can turn topsy turfy when the garage itself turns into a disorganized mess. It not only causes inconvenience in terms of time wastage but also dismisses the whole purpose of having it in the first place.
One other thing that you can do which will make a difference in the garage is to finally sort through the items and get rid of anything that you are not using. The choice of whether to throw those items away or sell them through a yard sale (or online) is going to be up to you. You might be surprised with how many of those items you can remove from the area and how much of a difference it is going to make in the usable floor space in the garage. Once you have made these changes, the only decision that you are going to need to make is if you are going to park a car in the garage or use it for another purpose.
On the other hand, hard plastic garage storage cabinets are easy to install, more durable and economical. Once you have proper storage space for tools, you no longer have to hunt for things as they would be stored in the right places. Wrenches, screwdrivers and paint brushes can be stored in shallow compartmentalized drawers or on pegboard hooks instead of large deep drawers as they might get lost there. Tools that are used often can be hung on pegs and stored that way as it saves the hassle of opening the drawers over and over again.
Having the right storage options along the walls can also make a difference in the look and usage of the garage. If you’re simply utilizing shelves, you really are not making enough use of the space. Having some storage cabinets where you can actually put things out of the way is one option that is open to you. A well-placed peg board can also assist you in getting some of the smaller items off of the floor and making them more readily available when you need them. There are a variety of pegboard hooks that are on the market which can help you to hang everything from a screwdriver to larger items that you may not have ever considered hanging on a pegboard.
