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.
One of the most important things for you to do when designing the garage is to take a look at the overall picture. Many of us could make good use out of the space, but it is important to make sure that you have something clearly in mind which is going to suit you and your specific purposes. In that way, you will be able to purchase the items that are necessary to store what is needed in the area without encroaching on the area to the point where it is unusable. It will allow you to park a car in the garage if necessary, but at the same time, have some little space if you so desire.
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.
They also come in very handy when hanging ladders. The strength of these hooks can easily hold any 10-foot ladder. Another reason these rubber coated hooks are so effective is the protection they offer. Most hooks are just plain metal and can scratch your belongings that you decide to hang on them. With the rubber coating this protects your belongings that you want to store. These are essential to any garage organization. There you have it, three essentials for organizing any garage. The use of all of these products will have that garage whipped into shape in no time! When used in combination with each other they are a might organizing force. All it takes is a little creativity and a focused outcome and your garage will look like a haven for tools and knick-knacks in no time.
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.
It does take a lot of time and effort to organize a garage or workshop, but the results are worth it. It’s actually quite empowering to know exactly where to go for a specific screwdriver, torque wrench, or ratchet that I need for a particular job. I’m far more efficient now than I’ve ever been, and can concentrate on perfecting my craft rather than trying to remember where I left my pliers. Some people might not care about organization as much as I do, but at this point there’s no way I would want to deal with a messy garage ever again.If you’re thinking about creating your own workspace in your basement or garage, then I recommend getting organized right from the start. Investing some money in pegboards, toolboxes, and oil absorbent pads will put you well on your way to maintaining an efficient and clean workshop!
Pegboard storage ideas are one of the cheapest ways to go as far as the cost of the pegboard itself, as well as the accessories for them. A full wall section can cost as low as $10 dollars for a four by four section, depending on the kind of materials used. You can effectively do your whole wall for under $200, if you want to go with the wood press board.
