The garage is supposed to be a place to park your car, but in many cases, the clutter takes up too much space. Does this sound familiar? If so, you could benefit from an overhaul. Remove a majority of the junk you really don’t need and install a garage storage system to organize the rest. Here are some considerations to keep in mind as you prepare to make the change.

Garage Storage Systems

Garage Clutter is a Hazard

If belongings litter the floor, they create a tripping risk. This is particularly true if sharp or rolling objects aren’t stored properly. You could easily get hurt if you have to reach a high shelf while climbing over piles of junk.

Also, take a moment to assess the garage for child safety. Your kids face the same tripping risks as you, but there could be an added danger of exposure to chemicals or sharp tools. If you ever send your kids to the garage to fetch something, you want to be sure you’re not sending them into a hazardous environment.

Custom Garage Cabinets Store Items Out of Sight

The ability to close the door on paints, pesticides, cleaning materials and other chemicals increases garage safety for your pets and children. Custom garage cabinets are built to last with adjustable shelves for flexibility.

Custom cabinets are mounted securely to the wall a few inches above the floor instead of simply sitting against the wall. This helps protect them from water damage and pest infiltration, making wall-mounted cabinets the best type of garage cabinet system.

Wall Hooks Get Large Items Off the Ground

Bikes, golf clubs, gardening tools, ladders and sports gear are often too big and bulky to store in cabinets for the garage. Another storage solution is to install hooks of various sizes on a slatwall.

These heavy-duty garage storage accessories can bear the weight of heavy objects and get them off the floor. At the same time, the hooks are easy to move so you can customize your garage storage solutions as your needs change.

Stop Wasting Time Searching for Things

No matter which garage storage system you opt for, the ultimate goal is to end up with a highly organized space. You’ll know where everything is kept and be able to find things quickly and easily.

In the end, an organized garage saves you time and energy while reducing stress whenever you set foot in the space. As an added bonus, a de-cluttered garage leaves you room to park your car out of the elements, which can help preserve its appearance and value while decreasing the chance of theft.
