Start your spring cleaning in the garage this year! Consider these space saving storage systems and tips to help reclaim your garage this season.
A. Cabinets should be mounted off the floor to avoid water damage. This also allows you to easily hose down the floor.
B. Cabinets should have interior mounted hinges that swing 110 degrees for easier access to contents.
C. Use shallow drawers for small tools and deep drawers for bulkier items. Invest in full extension runners so your drawers open all the way so you can reach the items in the back.
D. Use durable wire gridwalls or slatwalls with movable accessories to hang tools and sports equipment. Wooden peg boards will chip and warp over time.
E. Floor-to-ceiling slatwall provides a clean appearance and keeps large, bulky items off the floor but within easy reach.
F. Plastic bins are durable and keep items neatly grouped. Be sure your cabinets are deep enough and wide enough to hold large bins.
G. Consider sliding doors on garage cabinets so you can access your belongings with-out having to move a parked vehicle.
H. If possible, install cabinets all the way to the ceiling to maximize storage space.
