29 Garage Storage Ideas (Plus 3 Garage Man Caves)
Your home’s garage storage is an important room in the house especially if you live in a small one. When there’s limited space, a carefully designed garage can go a long way in storing large, infrequently used items, outdoor equipment, seasonal items, and just about everything else you want to keep hidden until you’ll need them.
Unfortunately, most home garages end up cluttered and disorganized. As a part of your house, it doesn’t have to be that way. You can still make the most out of your garage as a storage room and keep it great-looking just as other parts of the house are.
In order to keep things more organized and clutter-free, you’ll have to add cabinets, wall racks, storage shelves, and other organizers. This will also free up your garage with more available space than you thought you had.
Most garages can accommodate tall and large-sized cabinets that can contain assorted items and hide them from view. Pay careful attention to your cabinets because they contribute a lot to the garage’s design.
Just like most of the garages you’ll see in the gallery, consider what theme you want to work on. Be as creative as you can get and just have fun with conceptualizing.
Another way to maximize space in your garage is by using built-ins. They can be built-in cabinets, built-in workbenchs, embedded wall racks, and even overhead ceiling racks.
You can keep your mountain bikes and skates out of the way by storing them in a sport racks. Slatwall organizers are also great for making tools and sport equipment easy to find and clutter-free.
Here’s a fun idea for those who don’t have to worry about maximizing space in the house. Why not turn your garage storage room into a practical space such as a garage man cave?
