Garage Storage

The garage is often one of a home’s key storage areas. But because the space it offers is rarely used efficiently, the garage is a prime candidate for storage improvements.

You can buy modular storage system kits with components that can be mixed and matched to solve many storage problems. Or you can build your own storage solutions.

The improvements shown here may help you to reduce clutter, improve organization, and store seasonal items more conveniently. The most popular types of garage storage and organization aids are cabinets, shelves, various wall-mounted racks, and plastic containers.

Cabinets work well for hiding clutter and protecting their contents from moisture and dust. Shelves tend to be more affordable than cabinets; they efficiently save space and make paraphernalia more accessible by getting it off the floor. Wall-mounted racks, the most affordable of all, are great for keeping tools as well as equipment handy.

Store items that need to be protected from moisture inside of plastic containers. Buy the type that stack; clear plastic works well because it allows you to see what’s inside.
