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.
Common faults with fibre board panels were the fixtures often popped off when you removed tools, an annoying habit that is remedied today with metal wall panels that require a special movement to unfix a fixture, ensuring the fixtures stay put when you remove a tool. A metal striped pegboard panel will not be damaged by moisture or water damage and will not warp under extreme temperature and physical conditions. A metal striped pegboard panel will not chip or sag from the weight of the tools it supports, there is also the danger of the fine fibre particles themselves from the pegboard which can enter the lungs and cause much damage to your health.
Peg Boards: Pegboards are on the cheapest ways to organize your garage. They are incredibly easy to hang on your wall and they make it easy to organize tools and other small objects into a nice and neat little area. Pegboard hooks come in hundreds of varieties and they can essentially fit any tool that you want to hang. They even work great for hanging heavier tools because they leverage the pegboard to provide additional support. Pegboards provide a great way to organize hundreds of tools, everything from screwdrivers to socket sets. They make every tool very accessible without cluttering up a bunch of drawers. Because the pegboard lays flat against the wall you don’t have to worry about bumping next to it in your car. Pegboards are one of the cheapest and easiest ways to whip any garage into shape!
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.
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.
Hooks: Rubber coated hook hangers are great ways to store heavy-duty items in your garage. These typically have a thread on the end of the hook that allows you to embed them deeply into the garage wall. This provides great strength and leverage when storing objects in your garage. A great example of these hooks at work is with bike storage. Bicycles are typically very heavy and take up quite a bit of space. If you can get these things up off the ground and hanging from a hook you can make a ton of room yourself in the garage.
Parking Guide: It’s not uncommon to find an assortment of parking scratches and bruises in residential garages. One of the most popular remedies is the old tennis ball on a string hanging from the ceiling trick. This is a time tested remedy that works, but there are also modern solutions as well. Enter laser and proximity parking guides. Laser guides typically attach to the ceiling on or near the garage door opener. When the door is opened, the laser is activated and lights up a beam. All you have to do is line up the beam to a particular spot on your dashboard when your vehicle is already parked. Then, each time you pull in, let the preset beam show you where to stop. You can get just a single laser or a dual-laser depending on the needs of your garage. Proximity sensors, unlike lasers, mount on the wall you approach when you park in your garage. With these, you simply preset the distance between your bumper and the sensor. Then, as you approach, the sensor will tell you when to stop. Some models even act like a stoplight, with a yellow caution lamp, followed by a red stop lamp.
