Use Garage Cabinets To Organize The Garage and Increase Functionality

February 22, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 201

Most every homeowner is already using their garage as a storage area, however, how effectively the items are stored is another matter all together. Items that need to be stored or hidden somewhere are generally dumped in the garage. Presently, your garage is probably filled with clutter and disorganized.

It is imperative at this stage to remove all items from the garage that you do not wish to keep or that will be of no use to you or anyone else. Things that are in need of repair or irreparable should be put in the trash. Items that may still have some life can be donated to a local charity or given away. If you intend to donate or give away stuff, be sure to do it right away. It can be quite easy to procrastinate on this. In fact, procrastination may have led to your garage being in such disrepair. The best plan of action is to get rid of donation items immediately after discovering them.

Once the garage has been cleared of unwanted/unusable items, it is time to take inventory of the remaining items that need to be stored. Is there a lawn mower, a snow blower, and bicycles? Are there tools, nails, nuts, bolts, and other small parts? If you answered 'yes' to either of those questions you may want specialty cabinets like garage closets and parts storage bins. Also note the dimensions of the garage. Is it an odd shaped structure? Are there obstructions? If your answer to either of those questions is 'yes' it may be necessary to get a custom built solution.

Now it is time to find some garage storage cabinets. There are many product options out there for garage organization. The options that are available at the big box stores are most likely not going to satisfy the ultimate goal of increasing the functionality of your garage. You will want a system that hangs from the wall in order to create more floor space. You will want garage cabinets that are actually built to withstand typical garage conditions. This is where a lot of the big box store solutions fall through the cracks. Those systems are not built to hold up under temperature extremes, to be water and chemical resistant, or to stay together despite rough handling; all of which are conditions you will find in the typical garage.

Making a decision about what type of storage system to buy is definitely not as difficult as brain surgery but it is a choice that should be made after careful consideration and planning. You may even want to consult with a garage organizing specialist to be sure that you are going in the right direction. One of the best overall options for garage cabinets are powder coated wood cabinets. A powder coat garage cabinet is water proof, chemical resistant, does not scratch easily, and is available in an unlimited variety of styles, dimensions, and colors.
