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.
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.
It does take a lot of time and effort to organize a garage or workshop, but the results are worth it. It’s actually quite empowering to know exactly where to go for a specific screwdriver, torque wrench, or ratchet that I need for a particular job. I’m far more efficient now than I’ve ever been, and can concentrate on perfecting my craft rather than trying to remember where I left my pliers. Some people might not care about organization as much as I do, but at this point there’s no way I would want to deal with a messy garage ever again.If you’re thinking about creating your own workspace in your basement or garage, then I recommend getting organized right from the start. Investing some money in pegboards, toolboxes, and oil absorbent pads will put you well on your way to maintaining an efficient and clean workshop!
In many homes, the garage is the catchall room for everything that does not have a place of its own — and some things that do, but that no one gets around to actually putting away. For this reason, many people seek the aid of garage shelves to help them organize their excess personal belongings while still allowing there to be room to park the family car, too. However, because there are so many choices on the market today from wall shelving to overhead storage, to shelving units that you have to put together, to a pegboard and basket system, it can be difficult and overwhelming to determine what kind of garage shelves you might need for your storage concerns.
The pegboard storage is not just for the garage though. It can be used to make the laundry room easy to get around in and more functional too. Shelves can be used for the iron, spray starch, lint remover, stain remover and other items. The ironing board can be hung to save space along with a mop for quick clean ups. On the dowel provided on one of the shelves empty hangers can be placed for hanging clothes on as they come out of the dryer.
Shelving: We all know shelves are a great for organizing. With proper installation L Frame brackets can supply a great base for making shelves. The additional shelving creates a place to store boxes that you can’t fit in your attic and they make it easy to get things up off the ground and make more walking room in your garage. Recently I’ve seen a lot of people building shelving around their pegboards to provide a great area to place all of their power tools that come with those fancy hard plastic-carrying cases. This is a great idea for any garage. If you have any special power tools, such as drills, saws, air tools shelves make the perfect place to store those carrying case. One of the most underutilized areas to place shelving is above the garage doors. If you have a ladder it’s a great place that you can create shelving to around the entire perimeter of your garage. This allows even more storage space that is commonly left unused.
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.
