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.
There are many different advantages of using pegboard organizers for your garage storage needs. They have many different fun storage ideas, hooks for hanging tools from, grip holders for holding long handled tools, such as rakes, shovels, hoes, etc. They have a variety of cool bins, baskets, and even plastic jars with lids, all that fit into the holes on the board. Because the whole board is covered with these holes, you have just about unlimited combinations when it comes to how you put them up. You can use vertical or horizontal rows, place them randomly, or have areas for certain items, hand tools in one area, long handled items in another area, whatever you can think of. Best of all everything is neat and organized, and up off the floor.
Do you have a garage at home? How do you use your garage? Can you work comfortably inside your garage? Majority of us have our garage at home which serves different purposes. Some families converted their garage to a home-based office, while others use it as a space to work different repair jobs. Some even used their garage as a storage space to store unused and outgrown items which they believed will be needed in the future.
Workshops. When you use your garage as a workshop this can be a variety of workshops. It can be used as a paint studio, woodworking, for band rehearsal, or even a man cave. One of the first things that you will need to do is make sure that you clean out any junk in the area. You should either throw things away, keep it, give it away, or have a yard sale. Once this is done, you should paint your garage walls. You can use any color but if you want to give your garage a spacious look you should use white for the walls. Depending on what the workshop you should consider adding some shelving, maybe a pegboard to hang tools on, cabinets, etc. You should also make sure that there is adequate lighting and enough electrical outlets. Some like to work in their shop at night so make sure that there will be enough light to do so. You can also install a light over the work area.
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.
The pegboard storage can be used in the workbench area, to store all the tools that are used in building or repairing things. This way the tools are easily found when needed for use, so there’s no need to go rambling around trying to find something. Working on any project will be a snap with this kind of organization. Another way to use the pegboard garage storage system is to neatly arrange all the gardening tools. Racks and shovels can be hung to get them off the floor. Clippers, pruning shears and other smaller gardening tools can be hung up too. Shelving can be added to hold watering cans and other things that will not be hung. Also a roll of paper towels can be placed on the dowel provided on one of the shelves.
Garage storage cabinets are very important for any garage as they provide the extra storing space that every homeowner needs. Garage storage cabinets are available in a wide range of materials like wood, metal and heavy plastic that can help with storage of heavy items and keep them safe. And I will personally even vouch for some of the heavy plastic items, in saying that if assembled and installed correctly, are probably more sturdy than some of the metal or wood units. Make sure to get cabinets that are strong enough to store all kinds of tools and equipment that you keep around the house. You should always consider installing cabinets with shelves that are capable of storing equipment that measure up to hundreds of pounds. You can make your cabinets a well-built storage by fastening it together with dovetails joints.
