Garage Organization Ideas

Garage Organization IdeasThe garage in your home is so much more than a safe and secure location to store your vehicle. This area of the home can be used for all kinds of things—especially when you organize it correctly. At Contemporary Closets, we want to help you make the most of your garage space.

That’s why we’ve put together this guide to organizing your garage. Below, you’ll find several ideas for how to expertly utilize every inch of your garage space near Farmingdale, Parsippany-Troy Hills, and Wall Township. Read ahead to learn more about how you can get started!

1.     Use Floor-to-Ceiling Shelving.

There’s a lot more space to your garage than you realize when you consider more than just the space you have on the ground. If you go up rather than out, you can take advantage of all that vertical space with shelves and pins. Store both small items like tools and toys, and large items like lawn care equipment.

2.     Install a Magnetic Tool Bar.

Magnetic Tool BarAnother way you can go up instead of out is by taking advantage of the wall space with magnets. Install a magnetic tool bar that you can easily stick your tools to. This not only creates a space for them, but it also makes them easily accessible and always within reach.

3.     Switch Up the Gravity.

Bikes are an incredible way to get around, especially when the weather is nice. However, if every member of the family has a bicycle, that can take up a lot of space in your garage. Rather than having them take up floor space, hang them from the ceiling using heavy-duty hooks. All you’ll need is a latter to get them down when you need them.

4.     Put in a Platform Hanging Shelf.

Hooks aren’t the only thing that you can hang from the ceiling. You can also hang a flat platform up there and store things like you would on a regular standing shelf. Put seasonal items above like snowboards and skis, pool toys, and more. Then, they’re out of sight and out of the way until you need them.

5.     Use Clips Rather than Drawers.

ClipsDrawers can be really effective when it comes to storing small items like hats, gloves, and more. But rather than using floor space to store a unit with drawers, use clips to hang them up on the wall. You can even make this into a DIY project: Hot glue some old clothespins and a string to a piece of scrap wood, and you’ll have somewhere to store outside hats and gardening gloves.
