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.
Pegboard: Pegboard is nothing new to home garages. However, there are plenty of modern innovative shelves, hooks, bins, and containers that fit into pegboard. You can find these items at any home improvement center. You can use them for lawn and garden tools, household hardware, winter clothing, hand tools, etc. Pegboard is the most versatile type of organizer you can use. Basic pegboard is a little flimsy, but you can make it stronger by adding more supports when you mount it. You can also paint it to fit the theme of your garage. There are also other types of pegboard such as plastic and metal, which are available in different colors. Of course, they’re a little more expensive, but they’re also stronger, so you can use them to hold heavier items. No matter which type of pegboard you use, it’ll help you control clutter which is one of the most common problems in residential garages.
Workshops. When you use your garage as a workshop this can be a variety of workshops. It can be used as a paint studio, woodworking, for band rehearsal, or even a man cave. One of the first things that you will need to do is make sure that you clean out any junk in the area. You should either throw things away, keep it, give it away, or have a yard sale. Once this is done, you should paint your garage walls. You can use any color but if you want to give your garage a spacious look you should use white for the walls. Depending on what the workshop you should consider adding some shelving, maybe a pegboard to hang tools on, cabinets, etc. You should also make sure that there is adequate lighting and enough electrical outlets. Some like to work in their shop at night so make sure that there will be enough light to do so. You can also install a light over the work area.
Common faults with fibre board panels were the fixtures often popped off when you removed tools, an annoying habit that is remedied today with metal wall panels that require a special movement to unfix a fixture, ensuring the fixtures stay put when you remove a tool. A metal striped pegboard panel will not be damaged by moisture or water damage and will not warp under extreme temperature and physical conditions. A metal striped pegboard panel will not chip or sag from the weight of the tools it supports, there is also the danger of the fine fibre particles themselves from the pegboard which can enter the lungs and cause much damage to your health.
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.
The best wall storage systems you can find are the hardboard and fiberboard wall panels with grooved, pegged, slat, and holed slits which are designed for holding tools and utensils firmly and safely with panel fixtures. Traditionally there was just fibre board panels or pegboards available for consumers these came generally in 4ft by 8ft panels, a quarter inch thick, and had either slits or holes, available for the last 40 years they have served their purpose well but were restricted in utility and function and were not designed for much customization, now you can buy striped pegboard panels or custom colored panels made from metal.
If you only have limited working space in your garage, you can have your working bench specially made for your needs. If your funds permit, hire a carpenter to build one for you. By hiring a carpenter, you can have special features and designs made in your working bench. If you only have limited funds, you can always buy a do-it-yourself kit and build it yourself. Whatever way you want it done, just be sure to place your bench in an area which does not obstruct foot traffic. Whatever bench your buy or make, be sure it is durable and can last for longer period of time to avoid buying working benches several times.
