When it comes to organizing your garage some of the biggest hurdles involve handling all the big stuff. Organizing anything from your lawn mower to your weed whacker, these things take up tons of space and can really impair your ability to store things around them. Luckily we have some great ideas for you to help make the most of all your space in your garage. Whether it’s a 1-car garage or a 3-car garage.
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.
Quality: You can get custom storage systems on just about any budget. It all depends on the materials and the size of the overall system. It is not a quick process, and it can take several days for the manufacturer to complete and install each piece. Despite the fact that you may have to wait, what you get in return is quality you cannot find in a big box store. Some establishments market these systems as garage cabinets. However, it is better to use these materials in home closets. The design is not for the daily climates found in most garages. They easily wear out, and replacement is necessary within just a few months to a few years. Storage systems designed for your space use tougher material and seal it with a powder coat that makes it resistant to UV light, dents, scratches, and stains. The design lasts for years, even when you use it daily.
Metal, on the other hand, doesn’t have to reside in a temperature-controlled environment. The design is for use in extreme conditions. Higher-grade systems often come with a rust-resistant finish. They also do not warp when exposed to water or high heat. You can choose from aluminum, mid-grade steel, and high-grade steel. Aluminum design is for use in trailers; however, it is popular in garages due to its rust resistance and durability. It is soft and can dent easily.
If you decide to buy one for yourself, be sure to look for a working bench which will help you with your tasks or projects from simple, hard to intricate. In hardware and specialty stores, you can choose from wide range of pre-made working benches in different styles, sizes, materials and colors. You can find from simple, large and complicated designs containing storage enclosures underneath where you can store your tools and equipment. You can also find designs containing drawers, cabinets, peg-board and power strip. Remember that the more features it has, the more expensive it will be.
The pegboard storage can be used in the workbench area, to store all the tools that are used in building or repairing things. This way the tools are easily found when needed for use, so there’s no need to go rambling around trying to find something. Working on any project will be a snap with this kind of organization. Another way to use the pegboard garage storage system is to neatly arrange all the gardening tools. Racks and shovels can be hung to get them off the floor. Clippers, pruning shears and other smaller gardening tools can be hung up too. Shelving can be added to hold watering cans and other things that will not be hung. Also a roll of paper towels can be placed on the dowel provided on one of the shelves.
Peg Boards: Pegboards are on the cheapest ways to organize your garage. They are incredibly easy to hang on your wall and they make it easy to organize tools and other small objects into a nice and neat little area. Pegboard hooks come in hundreds of varieties and they can essentially fit any tool that you want to hang. They even work great for hanging heavier tools because they leverage the pegboard to provide additional support. Pegboards provide a great way to organize hundreds of tools, everything from screwdrivers to socket sets. They make every tool very accessible without cluttering up a bunch of drawers. Because the pegboard lays flat against the wall you don’t have to worry about bumping next to it in your car. Pegboards are one of the cheapest and easiest ways to whip any garage into shape!
