Don't just toss that garage clutter into a corner, cover it with a tarp and think to yourself that you have organized the garage like you have always wanted to. Did you know there are creative, colorful, affordable methods with which to store all your garage stuff that not only organizes your garage but can redecorate it as well?
Pegboards are versatile and aesthetically attractive garage organization tools that attach to your wall and allow you to hang a variety of items on hooks inserted into the pegboard's holes for quick and easy access. Additionally, you can add color and depth to your garage by hanging vividly painted pegboards in different shapes and sizes.
Some items that garage owners frequently hang on their pegboards include:
• Hammers, wrenches and pliers
• Hand garden tools
• Keys to garage cabinets
• Extension cords
• Dog leashes/collars
• Paint smocks
Magnetic pegboards are available for garage owners who do a lot of woodworking and building in their garage. These "pegboards" do not have holes but are magnetized so that nails, screws and other small, metallic items simply stick to the surface. Using this kind of board means you won't have dozens of dirty baby food jars sitting around holding various amounts of mixed up nails and screws.
Tall floor cabinets give your garage a spacious appearance after you have de-cluttered the garage floor and hung all your larger items inside them. Rakes, shovels, sports equipment and fishing poles will find safe homes inside floor cabinets that are available in different colors and styles. Quality cabinets have been powder-coated with special substances that protect the cabinet and its contents corrosion, extreme temperatures and humidity. In addition, corner-fitting floor cabinets provided by professional garage remodeling companies give you even more space in your garage to park cars, let the kids play or transform it into a home business office.
Clean, sturdy shelving units attached to modular garage wall systems can not only hold your typical garage items but also enhance the appearance of your garage when decorated with whimsical, attractive items. If you love collecting knick-knacks but have no place to display them, turning a corner of your garage into your own little Curiosity Shop by installing unique shelves will add a definite flair to your garage's overall appearance as well as keep your curios organized and readily accessible.
Although thinking about organizing your garage may not seem like a fun or creative task, using these garage storage solutions, as well as the dozens more that are available from a good garage remodeling business, will definitely bring out the creative, inspired side within you.
