garage that has been renovated with storage solutions

Like most people, your garage is more than just a parking spot for your car. It’s common for this space to become filled with all your gardening equipment, power tools and other items you have collected over the years but can’t seem to fit in your home. However, with a range of storage solutions, you can easily organise your garage into a space that suits your lifestyle and keeps your home free of clutter. Here are some of our best tips on maximising your garage storage.


How To Use Your Wall Space For Effective Garage Storage

Your garage walls are an ideal and practical place to maximise storage space. Use wall-mounted shelves and racks to easily access your most frequently used items while decluttering the floor. We recommend:

  • Installing FlexiPanel slat walls to freely attach and move around various shelves and storage accessories. The GarageFlex FlexiPanel system is extremely versatile and durable and can be placed on any number of your walls, with the ability to easily reposition storage accessories without the need for using any tools.
  • Using hooks to hang smaller tools and items such as gardening accessories and leisure equipment.
  • Installing larger shelves and platforms that can safely hold your heavier tools and equipment.


Installing Garage Ceiling Storage

When it comes to garage storage, your ceiling is probably not the first thing that comes to mind. However, with the addition of overhead storage racks, you can easily organise items you don’t need to access regularly, such as seasonal gear or old mementos. It’s also another great way to increase floor space, allowing you to fit your vehicles while still leaving plenty of room for storage. Here are some tips to maximise your garage ceiling storage:

  • Use heavy-duty overhead ceiling racks to support larger items such as kayaks, bicycles car pods even camping equipment.
  • Make sure that your overhead storage doesn’t interfere with any doors or other fixtures you may need to access.
  • Use transparent labelled storage boxes to make finding what you’re looking for easier.


Transforming Your Garage Into a Useful Storage Space

Consider a full-scale garage transformation if you’re looking for a more comprehensive storage solution. This can involve installing wall-mounted PVC cabinets and shelves, creating a workspace or dedicating storage spaces for specific activities. GarageFlex can also help you create a customisable solution that will adapt as your lifestyle continues to evolve. This gives you the option to add, remove or move around storage solutions as you see fit, depending on your current organisation needs. Here are some quick ideas to get you inspired:

  • Use various-sized open shelves to create a space that is both organised and looks visually appealing.
  • Install a fixed workbench on one of your walls.
  • Create a dedicated storage area for more dangerous items, such as chemicals, with PVC cabinets positioned higher on your garage walls well clear of access by children.
