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.
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.
Importance of Garage Storage Cabinets: The importance of well crafted and customized garage storage cabinets cannot be defined. It’s something that you need to experience to know its value and importance! A well installed garage storage system prevents tools and floor from humidity, pests and other destructive agents. A good garage cabinet storage is an asset to your home; make sure to make it in a proper and systematized way. Steel garage storage cabinets not only save your supplies from harm but also cut down the waste and disorder in garage.
The best wall storage systems you can find are the hardboard and fiberboard wall panels with grooved, pegged, slat, and holed slits which are designed for holding tools and utensils firmly and safely with panel fixtures. Traditionally there was just fibre board panels or pegboards available for consumers these came generally in 4ft by 8ft panels, a quarter inch thick, and had either slits or holes, available for the last 40 years they have served their purpose well but were restricted in utility and function and were not designed for much customization, now you can buy striped pegboard panels or custom colored panels made from metal.
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.
Shop. If city ordinances allow it, you could turn your garage into a shop. It could be a beauty parlor, a used clothing shop, gift shop, etc. Here you will also need shelves, pegboard to hang things on, and racks to display hanging clothing if you have a clothing store, counters, and more. One thing that you do not want to do is overcrowd your garage. You want to make sure that the people who visit have room to move around. Always make sure that your displays are attractive. You could have a regular garage door or one that has door for customers to enter so you do not have to leave the area exposed when open. Again, you can paint the walls white or choose vibrant colors. What color you use depends on what you are using the garage to sell. You will also have to advertise and put a sign in the yard advertising your shop or on the garage itself.
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?
