Fall is here and it’s time to put away the summer gardening tools and sports equipment and make room for fall and winter supplies. Instead of crowding everything into your garage until the space is so full you can’t even park your car inside, why not invest in custom garage storage solutions that offer you easy ways to store everything and maintain a clean and tidy space? Learn about four innovative garage storage solutions perfect for fall.
1. Ceiling-mounted hanger systems
If you have a lot of large pieces of equipment (such as bicycles, kayaks, or lawn furniture) and you do not want to sacrifice floor space for these items, consider an overhead system like this. This way, you can rotate fall items in and store summer items, making seasonal change-overs a painless process. If you do not have significant storage in the home, this is a great way to maximize storage space.
2. Cabinets with built-in countertops
If your garage doubles as a workspace, then these custom garage cabinets are a must. They let you easily use your garage as a work area so you can do at-home repairs, work on a hobby, or even use the space as your own potting shed. Combine your work area with flexible storage space by adding tool pegboards above the counters. Using S hooks, you can hang just about anything you need. Cabinets can be fitted with adjustable storage shelves to accommodate your tools and supplies.
3. Wall hooks + pegboards
Make the most out of wall shelves by adding pegboard and wall hooks for simple storage of fall tools. When you have your rakes, lawn bags, leaf blower, snow shovel, and other basic tools within arms’ reach, then doing basic maintenance work around your home becomes a lot easier. Both pegboard and slatwall offer hardy and flexible storage solutions. Add weight-bearing hooks and you can hang just about anything you need, reclaiming valuable floor space in the process.
4. Custom shelving + slatboards
After installing these solutions, you may find you’ve got a lot of odds and ends that still need storage. For these items, we recommend custom garage storage shelves that fit in your garage and accommodate the items you need to store. Custom shelves can integrate with cabinets or slatwalls to maximize every square inch of space in the garage. There are so many shelving options that we can work with you to find the right solution for your space and your budget.
