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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
One of my hobbies is tinkering on old cars in my garage. To me there’s nothing more relaxing than getting under the hood of what someone else considers a ”piece of junk” and doing my thing to make it run again. I’m not quite at the point where I can say that I restore classic cars, but that’s definitely my goal someday. It takes money to get into that game, though, so for now I just practice on old beaters that I find for a couple hundred bucks each. Once I get the vehicles running again, I can usually find a buyer and recoup my costs.
Do you have a garage at home? How do you use your garage? Can you work comfortably inside your garage? Majority of us have our garage at home which serves different purposes. Some families converted their garage to a home-based office, while others use it as a space to work different repair jobs. Some even used their garage as a storage space to store unused and outgrown items which they believed will be needed in the future.
