Create your own garage storage plan

Tags : 

There’s untapped potential in any garage to make room for more storage. Here are some rules you can apply to make the most out of your space.

Clear out

Weed out all the junk you don’t need. Keep only what you use; give away what you don’t, and throw away what’s broken and taking up precious space.

Make a plan

Treat your garage like any other room in the house. Take measurements and draw a floor plan to help you visualize what will fit and where it can be placed, just as you would for a kitchen or a dining room.

Categorize

Decide what items you’ll use often, like garbage bags and cleaning supplies. Keep these things nearest the door. Next, map out space for seasonal equipment: lawn mowers and weed-trimmers, etc.

Avoid placing big items like lawn mowers, in a corner where they’ll chew up space. Try to park them under a shelf unit. And be sure to clip ladders, shovels, rakes, and other garden tools into a wall rack off the floor.

Finally, get seasonal space hogs such as kayaks and bikes off the floor. These items should be relegated to walls or hung from the ceiling. A hoist pulley system (available at most home depots or online) that operates like the cords on window blinds and has clips or straps to hold large items can be installed directly into ceiling joists.

Containerise

Keeping things in containers not only lets you get them off the floor but keeps them clean. Transparent stackable bins conserve space and also allow you to see their contents. Always label opaque containers so that you know what’s inside.

Safety-proof

Designate a safe space for hazardous materials such as fertilizers, pesticides and paint, so kids can’t get into them. Hang sharp gardening tools up out of reach, and chain saws and other sharp tools stored in locked boxes.
