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.
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.
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.
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!
Something else that is used in almost every garage is a pegboard. This is a unique storage item that can help to keep many items available and within arms reach. Of course, there are a variety of pegboard hooks that are available which will help to make this become even more of a reality. For example, if you are trying to hang some tools so that you are able to get to them easily, you are obviously going to use different hooks for screwdrivers than you would for a larger item, such as an electric drill. The same is also true if you are hanging supplies that you regularly use. Choosing the right hook will make it easy for you to access these items when they are needed. With a little bit of advance preparation and the right storage systems, you would be surprised with how much extra room you will have in the garage. It will allow you to use that area of the home more efficiently and in ways that you may not have considered before the renovation took place.
There are many different places where you can buy pegboard organizers. You can often find many different styles and designs at you local hardware and home improvement outlets. For the best selection and price, there are also many online retailers, and you can get some great package deals, which include the board, and a variety of hooks and other accessories for one low price.
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.
