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.
The accessories are just as cheap. The basic 5/8” hook for a standard quarter inch pegboard can be as low as.34 cents each, and many times you can get a lot of them for free when you buy the board itself. These basic hooks are made from heavy duty galvanized steel rods, and have integrated tabs for added safety. You can buy them in various sizes from 5/8” up to three or four inches depending on your needs. You can also get them in different styles, for holding oddly shaped items like pliers, screwdrivers, and many others.
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.
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.
Something else that is used in almost every garage is a pegboard. This is a unique storage item that can help to keep many items available and within arms reach. Of course, there are a variety of pegboard hooks that are available which will help to make this become even more of a reality. For example, if you are trying to hang some tools so that you are able to get to them easily, you are obviously going to use different hooks for screwdrivers than you would for a larger item, such as an electric drill. The same is also true if you are hanging supplies that you regularly use. Choosing the right hook will make it easy for you to access these items when they are needed. With a little bit of advance preparation and the right storage systems, you would be surprised with how much extra room you will have in the garage. It will allow you to use that area of the home more efficiently and in ways that you may not have considered before the renovation took place.
If you want extra storage room in your garage, and let’s face it, who doesn’t, then garage storage cabinets are the simplest solution to organize the overfilled garage. Garage cabinets are very important as they provide a very clean, professional and organized look and give you a place to store all your junk!!
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.
