Do you ever wonder why so many of your neighbours have garages that they seemingly never use for parking their vehicles? This is likely due to them lacking effective storage solutions, such as a garage overhead storage system.
Statistics from the U.S. Department of Energy shed some light on the oddity of garages not being used for vehicle parking. They estimate that 25% of homeowners with 2-car garages can’t park their vehicles inside them because of excess clutter. Furthermore, only 32% of them are able to fit one vehicle inside because of clutter.
With the colder weather approaching, you’re probably making plans to store a number of things you’ve used over the spring and summer. Where can you store them so that your garage remains functional and is able to accommodate parked vehicles? You only need to look upwards to discover garage overhead storage space just waiting to be used!
Garage overhead storage brings many benefits to your home. Here are four reasons to consider this type of storage for your garage:
A wide range of items in your garage are well-suited for overhead storage, including:
Garage Living’s overhead storage racks are a great heavy-duty storage solution for your garage’s bulkier and weightier items. Items not currently being used because of the time of year are also ideal for garage overhead storage. Suspended from the rafter or ceiling joists, these storage racks utilize your garage’s underused vertical space. Their features include:
Because of the difficulty of driving during the winter, there’s a good chance you own two sets of tires for your vehicles. If you own multiple vehicles, that can add up to a decent portion of your garage floor space that off-season tires may be occupying. Use dedicated tire racks instead and you’ll quickly reclaim that valuable garage floor space!
Heavy-duty tire racks from Garage Living are wall-mounted, therefore you’ll save space. Your tires will be organized and you’ll have more room to function in your garage. Our tire racks come in three colours: granite, silver, and tan.
