If you own a home with a garage, it is likely that you are not making full use of the space that is available. As a matter of fact, the garage tends to be one of the more cluttered areas of the home and it finds its way into this situation over the course of time. After all, the garage is an area of the home that is not open to the public eye in most cases and it is often the choice location for items that do not have any logical place in the home. Before long, we find that the area is cramped and we may not even be able to park a car in the garage as a result. What are some of the things that you can do in order to make more space in the garage?
For a car owner the garage is one of the most important corners in the house. Cars have always been special for the owners and to keep it safe is a major concern. Also many people find it convenient to utilise the garage as a space to work on various projects. All the tools and materials that are required for any project can be systematically stored in there. This enables maintaining the aesthetics of the house as various equipments aren’t lying around here and there. However things can turn topsy turfy when the garage itself turns into a disorganized mess. It not only causes inconvenience in terms of time wastage but also dismisses the whole purpose of having it in the first place.
If you do not have one in your garage, I guess its time for you to have one to make the most of it. You can either buy one in hardware and specialty stores or build one yourself. Before you one or made one for yourself, be sure to plan things first on what size or what features you want your workbench to have. Do you want to have a portable workbench? Do you want to have one with enclosure and cabinets? Answers to these questions matter because it is where you based your specifications when buying or when constructing your own workbench.
Common faults with fibre board panels were the fixtures often popped off when you removed tools, an annoying habit that is remedied today with metal wall panels that require a special movement to unfix a fixture, ensuring the fixtures stay put when you remove a tool. A metal striped pegboard panel will not be damaged by moisture or water damage and will not warp under extreme temperature and physical conditions. A metal striped pegboard panel will not chip or sag from the weight of the tools it supports, there is also the danger of the fine fibre particles themselves from the pegboard which can enter the lungs and cause much damage to your health.
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.
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.
Pegboard: Pegboard is nothing new to home garages. However, there are plenty of modern innovative shelves, hooks, bins, and containers that fit into pegboard. You can find these items at any home improvement center. You can use them for lawn and garden tools, household hardware, winter clothing, hand tools, etc. Pegboard is the most versatile type of organizer you can use. Basic pegboard is a little flimsy, but you can make it stronger by adding more supports when you mount it. You can also paint it to fit the theme of your garage. There are also other types of pegboard such as plastic and metal, which are available in different colors. Of course, they’re a little more expensive, but they’re also stronger, so you can use them to hold heavier items. No matter which type of pegboard you use, it’ll help you control clutter which is one of the most common problems in residential garages.
