Quick and Easy Garage Space-Making Tips

A home garage is so much more than just the place where the cars are parked. It is the place where the entire DIY, garden, hobby, sports, camping and all other storage items live. Storage items are the gremlins that take over a garage and turn it into absolute chaos. After months of family members dumping away, you realise it is becoming harder and harder to get in and out of the car. It is time to organize; here are a few quick and easy space-making tips to help you make the most of the space you have without having to invest too much money.

Add shelves to utilise roof and wall space in your garage

Shelves are a great way to make custom space in an affordable way. The wall/corner best suited for shelves will depend on your garage layout. Group small items together in containers or boxes, and be sure to mark the boxes or containers clearly for future reference. The internet can give you multiple ideas to take your shelving to the next level. This overhead sliding storage system is a great inexpensive way for you to utilise your roof space optimally.

Use stacking plastic containers to keep everything neat

If the OCD in you wants everything out of sight, consider investing in multiple stacking plastic containers like these. The drawers give you easy access, and as they are mobile you can move them around later should the layout of your garage change.

Create a wall cabinet for all your tools

Tired of trying to find your tools? Why not showcase them in a wall cabinet like this? It is also an easy way to see if something is misplaced. Group all your screws and small items in recycled glass jars. Or if that OCD is rearing its head again, you can buy plastic containers that are all the same size.

Add racks/hooks for all the garden tools

Garden tools can be hazardous if they are lying around. It is best to add racks or hooks to have them lifted off the ground by creating a DIY rack or simply by fastening hooks to your garage wall. Hooks are also an ideal way to hang larger items up against the wall. For example chairs, bikes, or any other sports equipment.
