22 Jun 12 Handy Ways to Organise Your Garage
Whether it’s intentional or not, we can all agree that to some degree the garage is a dumping ground for everything. Though, it’s important to remember that a tidy garage is a productive one, so ensuring your space is properly organised, will help you find exactly what you need and enjoy the space fully.
If we do say so ourselves, now is a great time to take the time to organise our garages. Especially as we’re spending more time at home, and are most likely in need of a productive project! Read on to find out more about organising your garage and making sure you can use your space to its maximum potential.

Make the Most of Vertical Space With Wall Shelves
One of the main benefits of having a garage is the huge amount of vertical space they offer. The best way to use this vertical space is by opting for wall shelves. Shelves can be freestanding, anchored to walls or attached to ceilings to maximise space.
- Make sure to choose from shelving made from different materials, with the desired strength in mind. It’s also important to check the manufacturer’s instructions for the weight limit of each shelving solution.
- Corner shelving can be an excellent choice if you want to maximise space in what could be an awkward area.
Create a Flexible Garage Storage Wall
Rather than leaning any gardening tools against the wall of your garage, store shovels, rakes and other gardening tools on to a pegboard panel. Having your tools at eye level will also act as a permanent reminder to actually do the gardening you’ve been putting off!
Give Your Storage a Lift
Garage storage on the ceiling can come in a wide variety of forms, but each does save lots of valuable floor space, leaving you room for your car and other items such as cabinets on the floor.
A hoist can be an excellent way to store bikes overhead, giving you a solution to efficiently lift and lower your bikes. A hoist is also a good choice for ladders and kayaks.
Invest in a Tool Chest To Keep All Your Tools in One Place
Tool chests provide excellent organisational space for tools, hardware, car supplies and other frequently used items for around the house. They feature multiple drawers of different sizes, lockable drawers for security and wheels for portability. Some larger tool chests also include shelving and work surfaces.
If you’re a keen gardener, transform an empty corner into space for all of your gardening supplies and essentials. Also, add a small workbench to give yourself space to work and pot plants, so any mess is caught on the bench and can be easily cleaned up.
Utilise Clear Storage Boxes
Clear storage boxes can be another excellent storage solution for everything from tools to even out-of-season clothes. Boxes will keep items dust-free, dry and visible and can be stacked out of the way easily. They’ll also keep items protected from any pests such as moths or mice.
