Are you maximizing your entire garage storage space? If you’re not using your walls, you’re missing out on some vital storage real estate. We’ve come up with a few ideas to get your imagination running on wall storage.
Before you start to think about more storage, take a look at what you have that needs to be stored. You can figure out exactly what kind of storage would suit you best if you already know what you’re going to put in it.
Wall shelving can be easily installed and there are a number of options available. You can choose something that’s more functional than stylish or the other way around. If you’re hanging shelving on your walls, take weight into consideration. Ask yourself what the maximum weight on the shelving unit will be when it’s loaded up.
Wall hooks can hold everything from a ladders to bikes and everything inbetween. The benefit of wall hooks is that you can attach them to your wall to hold custom items. The hooks themselves take up very little space, so you know you’re using all the possible space on your walls.
If you have the money and the time, you can also build shelving into the walls. This will prevent you from losing that storage space when you built something that attaches to a wall. Some companies have complete wall storage systems that give you a number of different options.
Keep in Mind…
If you’re not using your storage to its maximum benefit, you’re losing out on some prime space. Take advantage of every possible part of your room for storage. After you’re finished maximizing your walls, start to think about how you can maximize the storage space on your ceiling. Every part of a storage space can be used so that you are getting the most from your surroundings.
