Garage Storage Systems: How to Set Up Storage Properly
You and I both know that garage storage isn’t the most exciting subject in the world to be reading or writing about. Nevertheless, sometimes we can squeeze out a little bit of excitement and enthusiasm for the subject – especially by imaging what’s possible by setting up a good, workable garage storage system in place of whatever state your garage currently finds itself in! In this article we will move forward with this idea and talk about some common aspects of garage storage and what you should know before opening your wallet.
Not surprisingly, the use of storage shelves and cabinets forms the basis of any decent storage set up in the garage. Most likely a unique combination of shelves, related to ones own needs, is the solution you are looking for. For people who find themselves with too much stuff and not enough space, consider purchasing mountable shelves. This type of storage attaches or hangs from the ceiling and walls, freeing up some highly prized floor space while also leveraging space that simply was inaccessible until now.
While garage shelves are an integral component, they are not the end all be all of garage storage. In fact, a very simple and cheap tool is available that also used wasted space in the same wall wall mounted shelves do. I’m talking about the use of hooks! A simple hook can be installed in seconds and be used to hang whatever garage storage items you need to have out and accessible, as dictated by how much you use them.
Now, before you open that wallet and spend any money on shelves, you’d be wise to first take a step we’ve not mentioned before. I’m talking about aggressively going through the items in the garage and deciding what to keep and what to get rid of. It would be a waste to spend money on garage shelves and storage systems that will only hold worthless trash and items you don’t really need, right? It’s not necessarily a fun time to go through and do this but it will make your job much easier, since the less you own, the easier it is to organize it in a garage storage system.
Garage storage should not and will never be the topic of dinner conversation. The mark of any working organizational system is that once it’s in place, it does the job and you don’t really have to think about what’s going on either way. This is the hall mark of a garage storage system that works and yours should be the same!
