How to Organize Your Garage
Your garage can be much more than a place to keep your car. It can be an invaluable storage space for gardening equipment, sporting goods, documents, and old possessions that you're not ready to throw out. Many people even use their garages as amateur workshops. However, a cluttered and disorderly garage is barely a suitable place to leave a car overnight, let alone a productive area for working or storing important belongings. To truly optimize your garage, you need organized storage options. This guide details three of the most popular garage storage solutions available on Overstock.com, each of which can help transform an untidy garage into a well-arranged and productive space.

Storage Solution Ideas

Hanging Hooks and Racks

Hanging Hooks and Racks

Versatile and sturdy, hanging hooks and racks are great places to store things like bicycles, hoses, rakes, shovels, saws, and ladders. Hanging these items up instead of leaning them against the wall or laying them flat on the ground can keep invaluable floor space freed up for walking through and parking your car. Some of these items can even be dangerous if they are left on the floor. Hanging them on reliable hooks and racks is a great way to ensure they are safely and conveniently out of the way.


Storage Shelves

Storage Shelves

Whether they are made from sturdy PVC, metal wire, or weatherproofed wood, storage shelves are an excellent way to organize any garage. The open design of a shelving unit means that you can store things off the ground but also leave them accessible. This makes them great for stashing toolboxes, snowboards, skis, motorcycle helmets, hunting equipment, cardboard boxes full of old paperwork, and much more. For versatile mobility, some shelving units are mounted to locking casters.


Cabinets

Cabinets

For smaller garages, some storage cabinets are built with a single set of shelves stored within closing doors. Some deluxe cabinets, however, are designed with sliding drawers, multiple shelving units, locking doors, and even spacious tables. These deluxe cabinets are some of the best storage solutions for a garage being used as a workspace. Some cabinets feature modular designs, allowing you to arrange the drawers, shelves, and tables as you see fit and customize your workspace according to your needs. Organize your tools and work equipment while keeping them conveniently within reach of your table with a sturdy and reliable cabinet from Overstock.
