If you want a cheap and easy way to solve a variety of garage storage needs, then pegboard organizers are the answer. What they are is a large tempered wood, metal or plastic board, with multiple holes that accept a variety of different hook peg products. They come in many different sizes, from 4’x4’ items, to panels that can spread across the entire length of a wall, or your whole garage wall space. Some are even free standing, meaning they have legs, and you can utilize both sides.
Quality: You can get custom storage systems on just about any budget. It all depends on the materials and the size of the overall system. It is not a quick process, and it can take several days for the manufacturer to complete and install each piece. Despite the fact that you may have to wait, what you get in return is quality you cannot find in a big box store. Some establishments market these systems as garage cabinets. However, it is better to use these materials in home closets. The design is not for the daily climates found in most garages. They easily wear out, and replacement is necessary within just a few months to a few years. Storage systems designed for your space use tougher material and seal it with a powder coat that makes it resistant to UV light, dents, scratches, and stains. The design lasts for years, even when you use it daily.
Anyway, I’ve learned that working on cars is a whole lot easier if my garage is as clean and organized as possible. That’s why I’ve got pegboards all along each wall, several toolboxes, and a bunch of oil absorbent pads right at my side. I’ve gotten in the habit of hanging my tools neatly on the pegboards or placing them in a toolbox as soon as I’m done using them. This cuts down on wasted time because I no longer have to spend five minutes looking for a particular wrench. I know exactly where it is at all times.
There are many more uses too for the pegboard storage than the ones listed here. Whether it is a garage that needs the pegboard garage storage to keep it neat, or any other room that needs to be organized, it is easy to see how the pegboard come in handy for organizing storage. The pegboard is durable too because it is made from 20 gauge steel. The arrangements of these boards can be customized to fit anyone’s needs.
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.
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.
For many people, the most common type of garage shelves that are chosen are the simple, yet durable, shelving units that you have to put together yourself. These can either be made out of plastic or metal and regardless of which type of material you use, they each have their benefits and drawbacks. Therefore, prior to considering one type of garage shelving over the other, it is in your best interest to do a bit of homework in order to determine which shelving units will be the best for you. This homework would involve taking a brief inventory of what types of items you plan on housing on the storage units — for instance, are they heavy, large objects or are they over-sized and awkward, or are do you just have a bunch of random boxes that need to find a home?
