Floor Covering: Garage floor coverings are not only practical, but they really make a difference in the overall appearance of your garage. When talking about coverings, there are many different types including garage floor paint, epoxy, tiles, and mats. Paint is certainly the least expensive method, but also the highest maintenance method. Paint will protect and make your garage look much better, but you will have to add a new coat probably once a year. Epoxy is similar to paint, but it’s thicker, and much more durable. It’ll give your garage floor that showroom look you find in many dealerships. Epoxy will cost you more than paint, and you’ll also have to do more preparation work, but the result will be worth the extra cost and effort. You can also opt for professional installation as most retailers offer the service. Garage floor tiles and mats are also options to consider. Tiles are typically 16 by 16 inches, and you can get them in a variety of colors. They interlock with each other to hold everything together, and they’ll make your floor look absolutely incredible. Mats come in many different shapes and sizes to fit your needs. They’re basically designed to contain automotive fluids, and all the muck your vehicle drags in with it.
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.
The answers you provide for these questions will go a long way in helping you determine which type of garage shelves are best suited for your storage needs. To expand on the examples further, if you have heavy items, you will most likely prefer to use metal shelving units as they tend to be a little more sturdy than their plastic counterparts. This, of course, is not to say that the plastic shelves are weak, but for heavy items it is bet to go with the most industrial strength products you can find, otherwise you might find yourself cleaning up a mess of collapsed boxes later down the line. So, by taking stock in what you want to store, you will be able to make the best choice where your garage shelving needs are concerned.
Anyway, I’ve learned that working on cars is a whole lot easier if my garage is as clean and organized as possible. That’s why I’ve got pegboards all along each wall, several toolboxes, and a bunch of oil absorbent pads right at my side. I’ve gotten in the habit of hanging my tools neatly on the pegboards or placing them in a toolbox as soon as I’m done using them. This cuts down on wasted time because I no longer have to spend five minutes looking for a particular wrench. I know exactly where it is at all times.
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.
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.
Garage storage cabinets are very important for any garage as they provide the extra storing space that every homeowner needs. Garage storage cabinets are available in a wide range of materials like wood, metal and heavy plastic that can help with storage of heavy items and keep them safe. And I will personally even vouch for some of the heavy plastic items, in saying that if assembled and installed correctly, are probably more sturdy than some of the metal or wood units. Make sure to get cabinets that are strong enough to store all kinds of tools and equipment that you keep around the house. You should always consider installing cabinets with shelves that are capable of storing equipment that measure up to hundreds of pounds. You can make your cabinets a well-built storage by fastening it together with dovetails joints.
