Apart from being a space to house your car, your garage is a really useful part of the home. It can get forgotten about a little, and become a dumping ground for anything that isn’t wanted inside the home. Garages can be a great space for storage, for seasonal items, tools, and other bulky items like bikes or skis that would take up a lot of space otherwise. If you don’t stay on top of what you have put in the garage, then it can become messy and unorganized with barely any space for your car. You have a garage that is on the small side, then getting it organized is something that is definitely important, otherwise your mess and belongings could take over!
If you want to know how to use the space in a tiny garage, then here are some things to consider.
Magnetic wall hangers
When you want to use the wall space that you have, anything that you buy, such as shelving, usually only comes in certain dimensions. If you have a small space that you want to get organized, then using magnetic wall hangers could be a more suitable solution. You can use the magnetic wall hangers at different heights around the room, and they can be used for a variety of items, particularly small items that still need to be stored.
Another aspect of garage storage that can get forgotten about, especially in tiny garages, is using ceiling height to make the most of overhead storage. A lot of commercial garage doors, IL either don’t go all the way across the ceiling, they roll up, or can be fitted to reach a certain height. That is why you can make the most of the ceiling space and not have to worry about the garage doors not closing. You could get sliding shelves installed on the ceiling using boxes for seasonal items, as well as using hooks to hang things like bikes, helmets, and skis high up and out of sight.
If your garage is lacking any kind of cabinets, and you are simply stacking boxes up from the floor, then it is time to get some cabinets for your garage. It will make accessing each drawer much simpler, and will be a good thing for a tiny garage where floor space is limited. You are going to be much more organized with a garage when everything can be labeled and put away in the correct place.
Pegboards and hooks
In a small garage, using up wall space is a must, in order to maximize the available space. If you have a lot of boxes just stacked up on the floor, then it can leave the space feeling messy and full, especially in a tiny garage. By using pegboards and hooks, you can get more organized and have items on display, so you know exactly where everything is and where it belongs. Items like tools can be stored on pegboards and hooks could be used for garden rakes and trowels, for example.
