Automatic Garage Door Closer: If you have an automatic garage door opener, then why not an automatic garage door closer to go with it? I’ve had mine for several years now, and it continues to work flawlessly. The peace of mind alone is worth every single penny I spent. It’s no secret that a garage door left open overnight, or while you’re away during the day, is an open invitation to thieves of all sorts. With an automatic closer, you’ll rest assured knowing your garage is secure. They’re very easy to install with an existing opener, and typically, they can be programmed to close anywhere from two minutes to an hour after the door was opened. Additionally, they have a separate override button in case you want your garage door open for an extended period of time. Adding an automatic closer is one of the best things you can do for your garage.
There is just no limit to the accessories you can buy, and many of these are priced well below ten dollars. This is one of the biggest advantages of using pegboards to organize you garage. You just need to secure them to the studs in your wall, and have a little bit of space between the wall and the board to allow the hook part to extend to the backside of the board.
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.
In many homes, the garage is the catchall room for everything that does not have a place of its own — and some things that do, but that no one gets around to actually putting away. For this reason, many people seek the aid of garage shelves to help them organize their excess personal belongings while still allowing there to be room to park the family car, too. However, because there are so many choices on the market today from wall shelving to overhead storage, to shelving units that you have to put together, to a pegboard and basket system, it can be difficult and overwhelming to determine what kind of garage shelves you might need for your storage concerns.
The pegboard storage is not just for the garage though. It can be used to make the laundry room easy to get around in and more functional too. Shelves can be used for the iron, spray starch, lint remover, stain remover and other items. The ironing board can be hung to save space along with a mop for quick clean ups. On the dowel provided on one of the shelves empty hangers can be placed for hanging clothes on as they come out of the dryer.
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!!
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.
