Customizing Your Space: The beauty of custom garage cabinets is that the design fits not only your space but also your needs. If you like to work with wood or metal, you will need some sort of bench that integrates right into the cabinetry. This allows you to have your surface area while keeping all your items within easy reach. A pegboard hangs beneath the top cabinetry and above the workspace. In some instances, you may not need a worktable. Instead, you need some place to hang yard tools, bikes, and sporting equipment. Floor-to-ceiling pegboards give you the flexibility to organize your tools and sports equipment how you see fit.
Light Switch: Another way to modernize your garage is to upgrade the light switch with one that’s illuminated when the lights are off. This eliminates fumbling around looking for the switch while leaning over, and holding the entry door open for enough light to find the switch. Even better, it’s inexpensive and easy to do yourself. With basic knowledge of electricity, all you have to do is turn off the breaker that feeds the switch and wire up the new switch the same way. There are no additional wires to worry about. The end result is a mild orange glow that’s easy to find in the dark. Another option is to add motion sensors to your garage lights so they come on as soon as you open the door. You can even get motion bases that screw into standard sockets. Once installed, all you have to do is screw in the light bulb as usual. This is a clever way to have motion activated lighting without having to do any wiring.
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.
