4 Space-Saving Tips For Garage Storage Systems

Whether you want to give your garage a clean-out or you want to maximise on space, having an effective storage system is the perfect way to bring order to your garage.

Garages can quickly become disorganised and messy, with unwanted items and tools piling up over time. It can seem like a daunting task, but the first port of call is to clear out and sort through your items and decide what is worth keeping. Once you have your items sorted, you then need an efficient and effective way to store and display your items.

It doesn’t matter if you use your garage to store tools and appliances, or as an extension of your household storage, keeping the space in order is the best way to make the most of your space.

Let’s take a look at some of the best ways to save space in your garage storage system.

4 space-saving tips

1. Use wall panels to maximise space

Is the floor of your garage a mess? You’re not alone. Garages often become a dumping ground and the mess can quickly pile up. The best way to store all of these items is with wall panels. Not only does this system maximise the space in your garage by utilising the available wall space but it also makes all of your items easy to see and access.

Wall panels are easy to attach and allow you to store items vertically, with different hanging and shelf accessories slotted into the purposely cut grooves in the panels. This means that they are endlessly versatile and incredibly durable.

2. Use appropriate hanging & shelf accessories to store items

Rather than stacking everything onto shelves, there are much more efficient ways of storing items. There are speciality design accessories that allow you to hang bicycles, loop hoses, hold balls and other sports items, and hook tools. Using the right accessory not only saves on space, but it also ensures that everything is easy to access, instead of being pushed to the back of a shelf.

3. Use a versatile workbench

Having a good quality and spacious workbench is an important part of a garage set-up, but some workbenches don’t offer anything more than a flat space to work on. Upgrade your set-up with a workbench that offers more, such as a base shelf, slots for easy tool storage, and screw compartments. This means you can easily organise your workspace and have your most frequently used items on hand.

4. Have a good quality tool box

A good quality, comprehensive tool box can make all the difference to a messy garage. If you have tools spread everywhere across your garage and a long list of missing tools, a tool box provides an easy and clean way to store your tools. Look for one that fits all your tools, has suitable compartments and easy access.

Xtrastor™ Wall Accessories
If you have installed a wall panel system for your storage, you will likely need wall accessories so that you can sort and store items. Heavy duty hooks, bike holders, baskets, shelves, multi tool holders, and loop hooks are just some of the accessories that will allow you to efficiently and safely store your items. Using the right storage accessory is important, as there may be items in your garage that pose a safety risk, such as tools or cleaning supplies.
