If you do not have one in your garage, I guess its time for you to have one to make the most of it. You can either buy one in hardware and specialty stores or build one yourself. Before you one or made one for yourself, be sure to plan things first on what size or what features you want your workbench to have. Do you want to have a portable workbench? Do you want to have one with enclosure and cabinets? Answers to these questions matter because it is where you based your specifications when buying or when constructing your own workbench.
One area of the home that is often overlooked when it comes to design purposes is the garage. The fact of the matter is, however, there are many things that can be done with the garage which will help to make it efficient and even add some space to the home. It does not matter if you are somebody that enjoys working on automobiles or if you want to have a workshop in the area to do some carpentry, there are going to be plans that are available which will hope to make it a reality. There are also plenty of things that you can do which will help to make the garage a more neat and user-friendly area.
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.
If you want a cheap and easy way to solve a variety of garage storage needs, then pegboard organizers are the answer. What they are is a large tempered wood, metal or plastic board, with multiple holes that accept a variety of different hook peg products. They come in many different sizes, from 4’x4’ items, to panels that can spread across the entire length of a wall, or your whole garage wall space. Some are even free standing, meaning they have legs, and you can utilize both sides.
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.
For many people, the most common type of garage shelves that are chosen are the simple, yet durable, shelving units that you have to put together yourself. These can either be made out of plastic or metal and regardless of which type of material you use, they each have their benefits and drawbacks. Therefore, prior to considering one type of garage shelving over the other, it is in your best interest to do a bit of homework in order to determine which shelving units will be the best for you. This homework would involve taking a brief inventory of what types of items you plan on housing on the storage units — for instance, are they heavy, large objects or are they over-sized and awkward, or are do you just have a bunch of random boxes that need to find a home?
There are many more uses too for the pegboard storage than the ones listed here. Whether it is a garage that needs the pegboard garage storage to keep it neat, or any other room that needs to be organized, it is easy to see how the pegboard come in handy for organizing storage. The pegboard is durable too because it is made from 20 gauge steel. The arrangements of these boards can be customized to fit anyone’s needs.
