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.
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?
Customizable metal pegboard is set to revolutionise utensil storage. For forty years the limitations of fibreboard has narrowed our imagination in utensil storage. Is your utility room, garage or workshop cluttered with tools and equipment and impossible to move around in without knocking over stacks of junk that you forgot was even there? Well now it’s time to move the clutter from the floor to the walls and free-up all that space and make finding utensils, tools and other items easy with striped pegboard panels or regular wall panels.
Automatic Garage Door Closer: If you have an automatic garage door opener, then why not an automatic garage door closer to go with it? I’ve had mine for several years now, and it continues to work flawlessly. The peace of mind alone is worth every single penny I spent. It’s no secret that a garage door left open overnight, or while you’re away during the day, is an open invitation to thieves of all sorts. With an automatic closer, you’ll rest assured knowing your garage is secure. They’re very easy to install with an existing opener, and typically, they can be programmed to close anywhere from two minutes to an hour after the door was opened. Additionally, they have a separate override button in case you want your garage door open for an extended period of time. Adding an automatic closer is one of the best things you can do for your garage.
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 own a home with a garage, it is likely that you are not making full use of the space that is available. As a matter of fact, the garage tends to be one of the more cluttered areas of the home and it finds its way into this situation over the course of time. After all, the garage is an area of the home that is not open to the public eye in most cases and it is often the choice location for items that do not have any logical place in the home. Before long, we find that the area is cramped and we may not even be able to park a car in the garage as a result. What are some of the things that you can do in order to make more space in the garage?
Therefore there is a requirement for easy storage of the tools and other items in a clean and safe environment. This will eradicate the wastage of time during searching for something and also prevent instances of tripping over a tool left on the ground.
