All homes have a dumping ground grave yard: the garage. When something doesn’t have a place in the home, out to the garage it goes. It’s challenging to get motivated to start new projects or even simple yard work when you have to climb through clutter in the garage to locate any needed tools just to get started. Many unlikely spaces and common household items can be used to help with garage organization in Silverdale and create the extra space needed to get projects done.
That air space above your parked car can actually be used for a significant amount of storage for items that do not need to be accessed regularly up and out of the way. Adding shelving on the ceiling of your garage will provide a space for all those boxes of holiday decor, extra wood for future projects, and anything else that needs to be stored. Applying the same concept of suspension, create an area for labeled storage bins which can be retrofitted to hang from garage ceiling beams out of the way and easily accessible when needed.
With a magnetized board, you can locate and use all tools easily and grab what is need without digging in disorganized toolbox or drawers to find it. Also consider peg boards which are easily installed and most often include clips and hangers needed to hang tools from screwdrivers to hammers. Having tools organized and easily accessible helps to make projects go faster and easier, not to mention more convenient.
Bicycle’s can easily be hung upside down from garage wood beams using a pair of bicycle hooks. When the bike is needed, simply lower it down by removing it from the ceiling one hook at a time.
Storing gardening tools and lawn maintenance items can take up a significant amount of space. Placing shovels and rakes on PVC pipes are a great way to free up extra garage space and make access easy when the tools are needed. ABS plastic pipes mounted on a wood base can also be used to hang electrical wires or hoses to make for an inexpensive hanger.
The smooth surface of the PVC and ABS plastic pipes make for quick and easy storage and unloading.
For those with a green thumb, creating a separate area for gardening tools and materials can be a huge bonus. Hanging floating shelves or tables and wire baskets for gloves and handheld tools can help with keeping all like items in one place.
Use wood pallet boards to create a space-saving garage storage corral. Lay the pallet flush against the garage wall, with the slats horizontal, and secure it into place using long screws. Remove a few of the highest horizontal slats to make accessing stored items easier. These clever ideas for garage organization in Silverdale will have the garage de-cluttered quickly, so you can finally get to the projects on your list.
