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.
Wood or Metal: Garage cabinets come in wood or metal. Both substances have their benefits and their drawbacks. The one you choose ultimately depends on your needs, budget, and tastes. With wood, you have the advantage of more sizes and shapes than you do with metal. You also have a wider variety of powder coat colors from which to choose. The majority of these systems use a medium density fiberboard (MDF), which is strong and dense. Its use creates a long-lasting unit. What you need to look for is a system that has a protective finish. Those without this finish will not last as long and are not as durable in areas that are not temperature controlled.
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.
The accessories are just as cheap. The basic 5/8” hook for a standard quarter inch pegboard can be as low as.34 cents each, and many times you can get a lot of them for free when you buy the board itself. These basic hooks are made from heavy duty galvanized steel rods, and have integrated tabs for added safety. You can buy them in various sizes from 5/8” up to three or four inches depending on your needs. You can also get them in different styles, for holding oddly shaped items like pliers, screwdrivers, and many others.
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.
First of all, we are assuming that you are not able or not interested in adding a bump out on the garage which will actually increase the floor space that is physically available. This is not an option for most people, but there are some things that can be done which will help to get things off of the floor and improve your ability to use the garage effectively. One important thing that you should consider is the ceiling, as it is an unused area of the garage in most cases. There are many things that can be hung from the ceiling in a garage such as fishing poles, lawn tools and your bicycle. Putting those items up an out-of-the-way can make a difference in your floor space that is open and available.
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.
