5 Smart Garage Cabinet Ideas That Make It Easy To Stay Organized

Staying organized in the garage becomes much easier when you have smart storage and organization solutions to help. There are several ways to accomplish this, such as with a garage cabinet system.

When choosing the right garage cabinet system, don’t underestimate the critical importance of high quality materials in their construction. Your garage is subjected to fluctuating temperatures, higher levels of moisture, dirt, and sometimes chemicals. You’ll also be handling tools and heavy items around your cabinets, in addition to opening and closing drawers countless times. These factors illustrate why you shouldn’t compromise on quality and craftsmanship.

For durable, long-lasting garage cabinet systems, Garage Living has you covered with various cabinet styles and designs for your storage needs. Any of the following garage cabinet ideas will keep your tools organized and safe, while also upgrading its aesthetic appeal.

1. GL Signature cabinets

For those on a tighter budget, the GL Signature line is one of our garage cabinet ideas worth considering. The GL Signature line is a modular configuration. This means that it consists of pre-made standalone units that are assembled to create a highly functional storage system that also looks great. Choose from different styles, such as upper and base cabinets, locker cabinets with adjustable shelves, cabinets with drawers, and cabinets with both drawers and doors.

All GL Signature components are made with sturdy 18 gauge welded steel construction that’s powder coated to ensure a long life. You’ll instantly recognize the fine craftsmanship that’s gone into these cabinets when you open the drawers (made with 100 lb ball bearing sliders) and single wall doors (powerful magnetic latches, available with locks, keep them securely closed). A maple butcher block countertop provides a very durable work surface. Five specialty options are also available.

2. GL Premium cabinets

The GL Premium line of modular garage cabinets offer a little more design flexibility and a few differences from the GL Signature line. That durable powder coated 18 gauge steel construction comes with even sturdier double walls and doors, along with the choice of a maple butcher block or stainless steel countertop. This model comes with 125 lb ball bearing drawer sliders and European soft-close door hinges. Both models, along with the GL Custom Steel line, come with stainless steel handles.

All of our garage cabinet systems have adjustable feet that help protect your investment from ground moisture. They also assist with balancing your cabinets on uneven garage floors. If you garage floor is in bad shape, our Floortex™ polyaspartic floor coating is your best solution. These specialty options are available for both the GL Signature and GL Premium cabinetry lines:

  • closet rod
  • backsplash
