Space Saving Tips for Your Garage

For many homeowners, their favorite hobbies and activities spill into their garage. Sometimes it is too easy to simply pile the things we do not want to look at in our garages. If you ever feel like you do not have enough space in your garage, you are not alone. Keep these space saving tips for your garage in mind when organizing your garage.


Ceiling Storage System

One of the best ways to clear space in your garage is with an overhead storage system. Ceiling storage systems are popular enough that you can purchase them at most home improvement stores. You can always purchase a few beams, and mount them so that the lips of the bins you are storing will be suspended. This accessory is perfect for any homeowner looking to keep their garage organized.


Peg Board

Peg boards are a versatile way to organize your garage. All you need is a peg board and a variety of holders to plug in to your board. Tools, hoses, ropes, and essentially anything can be mounted or hung on a peg board. Depending on your storage needs, you can purchase a board that spans an entire side of your garage. If you are a craftsperson in need of extra space, a peg board is for you.



For the outdoorsy type, pallets can be used in many ways. If you want to keep dirty bikes off of the garage floor, you can cover a pallet for a sturdy option. To prevent all of your athletic goods, especially balls, from spilling everywhere, simply fence in your pallet with chicken wire. Pallets can be used in a variety of ways, all you need is a spark of inspiration.


Rack System

If your rakes, shovels, and brushes are all leaning in a corner, it may be time to install a rack system. All you need is a few boards mounted vertically with matching notches, and they can hold almost anything. This simple addition to your garage will keep your tools from falling over.


Car Lift

For the savvy car collector, sometimes a one car garage isn’t enough. While a car lift is usually for mechanics, options are available for residential garages. With this system you can protect one of your most valuable possessions. Turn a one garage into a two car garage with this addition to your garage. You will no longer have to decide which car to leave out in the rain.
