The garage fills up the fastest of all the spaces in your home. According to Houzz, about 25% of homeowners with a two-car garage don’t have room to park a car, and 32% have room for only a single vehicle. Custom garage cabinets can help free up some space in your garage. Try these five tips for making more space in your garage.
1. Retractable Work Benches
A fold-down workbench tucked inside custom garage cabinets will free up some real estate in your garage. Anything you can do to reduce the amount of floor space being taken up is a good thing. A retractable workbench that folds neatly into custom garage cabinets gives you all the benefits of having a workbench without sacrificing floor space.
2. Tap Into The Vertical Space
Garages usually have high ceilings with plenty of wall space. Custom garage cabinets that hang on the walls can be a great way to free up space in your garage. Making the most of the vertical space in your garage is an easy way to free up floor space and make the most out of the area you have.
3. Upgrade To Adjustable Shelves
Adjustable shelves are a great option for storing goods in your garage. Adjustable shelving makes it easier to move stored goods around in the garage. Adjustable shelving is great for keeping things organized and meeting your storage needs as they change.
4. Peg Boards for Tools
Another great way to take advantage of vertical space is to install peg boards. Of course, peg boards could be part of garage cabinets to keep things organized. Pegboards are an efficient way to store hand tools without taking up space.
5. Use Overhead Storage for Large Items
If you have bicycles cluttering the garage, consider installing overhead storage. Overhead storage can be great for bikes, kayaks, and other equipment. Getting creative with storage methods is one of the best ways to utilize the spaces you don’t use to free up the space you need.
The right storage tools can make a big difference in how much usable space you have in your garage. Learn more about custom garage cabinets and how they can help you have more garage space. Give Arizona Garage & Closet Design a call today to see how we can help you better utilize your garage.
