A craft room can benefit greatly by having a system similar to the pegboard garage storage. Craft materials can be quite messy just lying around unorganized. When a project is being started then time has to be wasted trying to find what is on hand, so the person knows what else to buy to complete the craft item. Paints, scissors, glue and many other craft material can be stored hanging on the pegboard, sitting on the shelves or in the bins that are on the pegboard.
Metal, on the other hand, doesn’t have to reside in a temperature-controlled environment. The design is for use in extreme conditions. Higher-grade systems often come with a rust-resistant finish. They also do not warp when exposed to water or high heat. You can choose from aluminum, mid-grade steel, and high-grade steel. Aluminum design is for use in trailers; however, it is popular in garages due to its rust resistance and durability. It is soft and can dent easily.
The market has now met the demand for diversity and customization that wall storage consumers have been demanding in the past, the standard white hardboard pegboard is obsolete and costwize only a little cheaper than it’s new modern metal counterpart which is almost endless in the ways it can be customized by the consumer and has many varieties of design, color and utility that would meet any and all detailed requirements of a buyer. This is custom colored pegboard and is made from metal, it is durable and will outlast the traditional hard board peg board by many decades. Designed with utility in mind these metal pegboard panels have both round peg board holes and thin vertical slots placed side by side on the metal wall panels in rows.
The best wall storage systems you can find are the hardboard and fiberboard wall panels with grooved, pegged, slat, and holed slits which are designed for holding tools and utensils firmly and safely with panel fixtures. Traditionally there was just fibre board panels or pegboards available for consumers these came generally in 4ft by 8ft panels, a quarter inch thick, and had either slits or holes, available for the last 40 years they have served their purpose well but were restricted in utility and function and were not designed for much customization, now you can buy striped pegboard panels or custom colored panels made from metal.
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.
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.
One other thing that you can do which will make a difference in the garage is to finally sort through the items and get rid of anything that you are not using. The choice of whether to throw those items away or sell them through a yard sale (or online) is going to be up to you. You might be surprised with how many of those items you can remove from the area and how much of a difference it is going to make in the usable floor space in the garage. Once you have made these changes, the only decision that you are going to need to make is if you are going to park a car in the garage or use it for another purpose.
