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.
Oil absorbent pads are also a necessity for cleaning up spills and other accidents. Spills are unavoidable in this business, but the last thing I want is for my garage floor to be covered in unsightly stains. The only remedy is to clean up a mess with oil absorbent pads as soon as it happens so the stuff doesn’t have a chance to soak in. I also use an eco-friendly powder agent to take care of any residue that the oil absorbent pads might have left behind. The result is that my garage floor is as spotless today as the day I moved in!
For a car owner the garage is one of the most important corners in the house. Cars have always been special for the owners and to keep it safe is a major concern. Also many people find it convenient to utilise the garage as a space to work on various projects. All the tools and materials that are required for any project can be systematically stored in there. This enables maintaining the aesthetics of the house as various equipments aren’t lying around here and there. However things can turn topsy turfy when the garage itself turns into a disorganized mess. It not only causes inconvenience in terms of time wastage but also dismisses the whole purpose of having it in the first place.
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and customization that wall storage consumers have been demanding in the past, the standard white hardboard pegboard is obsolete and costwize only a little cheaper than it’s new modern metal counterpart which is almost endless in the ways it can be customized by the consumer and has many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.
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.
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.
The answers you provide for these questions will go a long way in helping you determine which type of garage shelves are best suited for your storage needs. To expand on the examples further, if you have heavy items, you will most likely prefer to use metal shelving units as they tend to be a little more sturdy than their plastic counterparts. This, of course, is not to say that the plastic shelves are weak, but for heavy items it is bet to go with the most industrial strength products you can find, otherwise you might find yourself cleaning up a mess of collapsed boxes later down the line. So, by taking stock in what you want to store, you will be able to make the best choice where your garage shelving needs are concerned.
