Garage space arranged with wall mounted cabinets.

At Garageflex, we know just how important the right storage solution is for efficiently organising your garage. After all, there’s nothing better than finding the perfect place for every item you’ve collected over the years. Two of the most popular garage storage solutions you will have come across are freestanding and wall-mounted PVC garage cabinets. Today, we’ll explore the key differences between the two and how you can maximise the benefits that they offer.

What Are Freestanding PVC Cabinets?

As the name suggests, freestanding PVC cabinets are stable and self-contained units you can move around as necessary. If you like to keep things in long-term storage, they’re the perfect solution for you. These cabinets use ultra-durable and damage-resistant materials, so they have high capacities and are a strong foundation for your storage systems.  At Garageflex, we offer freestanding cabinets in various sizes and configurations to match your needs. Each includes a set of adjustable shelves and legs for a flexible storage solution that can change with your lifestyle.

What Are Wall-Mounted PVC Cabinets?

Are you looking to maximise storage within a vertical space? Wall-mounted PVC cabinets are the perfect solution.  They are streamlined and space-efficient, ideal for smaller garages. One of the key advantages of wall-mounted cabinets is that they keep the floor area clear, making it easier to navigate and work in the garage. They also provide a clean and organised appearance by keeping items off the ground. Perfect for those looking for a polished and professional-looking workspace. Garageflex also offers wall-mounted cabinets compatible with our FlexiPanel system, allowing you to easily detach the storage solutions and move them around depending on your needs at any time.

How To Organise Your Garage With Cabinets

Regardless of whether you opt for freestanding or wall-mounted PVC cabinets, the strategies for effective organisation remain the same. Here are some tips to help you maximise the benefits of your chosen cabinet type:

  1. Assess Your Needs: Before deciding on a cabinet for your garage, assess what items you need to store. With this in mind, you can ensure you get cabinets that are the proper size, style and configuration for your space.
  2. Plan the Layout: Planning the layout of your garage cabinets is a crucial step in achieving a well-organised space. By taking the time to strategise the placement of these essential storage units, you can significantly enhance the functionality and aesthetics of your garage. Think about the flow of movement within the garage and identify areas that are most accessible.
  3. Sort and Categorise: Consider creating zones for different types of items to ensure easy access and convenience. Group similar items together and categorise them. This will make it easier to allocate specific cabinets for specific purposes, promoting efficient organisation.
  4. Utilise Vertical Space: Opt for wall-mounted cabinets to fully utilise your vertical space potential. Install cabinets at varying heights to accommodate a diverse array of items and guarantee convenient accessibility.
  5. Label, Organise and Maintain: Label your cabinets to quickly locate items. Regularly assess and maintain your organisation system to prevent clutter from building up.
