How Do I Make Storage Space in my Garage?

Creating storage in your garage can be a game-changer when it comes to keeping your space organized and clutter-free.

Here are some practical tips to help you make the most of your garage storage.

First, utilize your vertical space by installing garage wall storage systems.

These systems often include shelves and a variety of hooks that can be easily mounted on the walls.

Take advantage of this unused space to store tools, gardening equipment, sports gear, and other items.

Additionally, consider utilizing the ceiling space by installing overhead storage racks or shelves to keep bulky items out of the way.

Another effective strategy is to categorize and declutter your belongings.

Sort items into categories such as tools, sports equipment, and seasonal items, and then purge any unnecessary or unused items.

This will free up valuable space and make it easier to organize the remaining items.

Lastly, maximize the use of containers and bins to keep smaller items neatly organized and easily accessible.

Label the containers to make it effortless to find what you need.

By implementing these strategies, you’ll be amazed at how much storage space you can create in your garage.

How Do you Hang Things on Garage Walls?

Hanging things on garage walls is a straightforward and efficient way to create storage and keep your space organized.

One of the simplest methods is to use hooks.

There are various types of hooks available, such as pegboard hooks, S-hooks, and specialized hooks designed for specific items like bicycles or ladders.

These hooks can be easily mounted on the walls, providing a convenient place to hang tools, garden hoses, extension cords, and other frequently used items.

And while I’ve had a pegboard, I didn’t love it.

Another option is to install a garage wall system, like Ryobi’s Link.

With this system, you can attach different accessories like hooks, baskets, and shelves to the wall tracks, customizing the storage to your specific needs.

What I love about this system is that it’s flexible and durable!

If I get a new tool, I can easily move the hooks or shelves around to fit my needs.

In addition, this system is built to last.

You’ll find that the link wall tracks which mount to your garage wall are durable and the hooks are made of steel and can accommodate up to 50 pounds.

No question using your garage walls is an effective way to maximize storage space while keeping your items easily accessible.
