Choosing the Right Cabinet for your Garage Storage Needs

Garage storage systems are a great way to take advantage of unused space as well as organizing the inevitable pile of stuff that can build up in an unorganized garage. From gardening supplies to seasonal decorations to bikes, toys, and tools, sometimes it can be hard to even get a car in there! Instead of parking on the street, choose from one of our great storage systems and turn that mess of stuff back into useful items that you can actually find when you need them!

Garage Cabinet

Determine Your Space

The first step is determining how much space you have to work with and how much you need to store. Many people drastically underestimate how much space their storage solutions will take up if they ignore this step so be sure to start by measuring your space. Next, calculate how much space the car will take up and be sure to leave room for the car door to open as well as pathways to the doors.

Finally, organize your possessions. Start by sorting out all of the things you no longer need or want. Be ruthless with this step and get rid of anything that has not been used in over a year or is unlikely to be used in the next one. Sort these discards into three piles: donations, garage sale, and garbage. Then, organize what you are keeping by how often you will require access to each item.

Cabinet Systems

Cabinet systems allow for the most flexibility and come with a wide variety of accessories such as:

  • Workbenches;
  • Pegboards;
  • Bins; and
  • Drawers.

They can be customized to fit just about any space and storage requirements and keep your garage from becoming a big mess. These cabinet systems are available in a variety of finished and styles to match your décor and bring a touch of organization and class to your garage.

Organizing

Once you have chosen your cabinets, organizing what you put into them is just as important. Tuck away whatever you do not use very often and store seasonal items out of the way. Keep your gardening supplies together in a specific area by the door to the garden and organize your tools by your new workbench. Spend some time finding the right place for everything and you will not only be able to find it more easily but you will also have a much easier time keeping garage organized in the long run.
