Space Saving Tips for Your Garage

The majority of us have some sort of hobby we are proud of, and maybe a cluttered garage because of that hobby. Over the years we acquire more items, and before you know it, you are out of storage space. If you have ever thought that your garage does not have enough space, you are not alone. Check out these space saving tips for enthusiasts and hobbyists alike.



For many homeowners, garage space and work space are one and the same. Keeping that desk, work bench, or saw horse clear can often be difficult. You can clear up floor space in your garage most efficiently with a ceiling storage system. All you need to do is install a few boards as tracks and slide your way into an organized space.



If you are a fishing enthusiast, keeping your rods and gear properly stored is no easy task. To keep all of your goods organized, try installing a rack system. All you will need is a few boards mounted vertically with matching notches. You will be able to store your fishing gear, along with any shovels, rakes, and umbrellas easily.



Outdoor sports may be your family’s interest. Re-purpose an old pallet as an equipment holder. All you need is chicken wire to fence in the area so that your balls do not roll away. Hang bicycles and kayaks with rods mounted near the ceiling of your garage. If your family members’ interests are diversified, consider lockers to keep your activities organized.



For the car fanatic, keeping your garage space clean is often an act of reverence. Whether you house collector cars or simply enjoy being your own mechanic, saving garage space is crucial. If you truly want to be savvy about saving space, consider a car lift in your garage. No, you do not need to be a mechanic to own one. Some are made specifically for residential use for slim vehicles. You could turn your one car garage into two.



No matter your hobby, every homeowner is looking to maximize their garage space. One of the easiest ways to accomplish this is by mounting a peg board. With a peg board, you can mount a variety of tools to keep your gear organized. These boards can span an entire side of your garage if necessary. Keep in mind that adding storage space is one of the best ways to add value to your home.
