Organizing a garage is not a one-size-fits-all project, so we’ve compiled some of our best garage storage ideas. Check out these tips to find ways to make your garage more organized and better to use.
Wire shelving in the garage
Maximize your garage storage space quickly and easily with simple and inexpensive shelves, baskets, and hooks. And to achieve the joy of the garage these garage storage racks will give you only one morning. Here’s how to organize your garage with these garage organization ideas.
Fishing Rod Organizer
We got sick and tired of our fishing rods, so we came up with the organizer of this fishing rod. All you need for this DIY garage storage system is a 3-inch diameter PVC pipe and foam swimming pool noodle. Drill 1-in. The hole extends every 4 inches in the PVC pipe. Use a utility knife to cut the slots in the foam noodle, separating them by 4 inches. Line the pool noodle on the wall so that at least two slits sit above the stud. Separate those slits, slide into a fender washer, and screw the noodle into the wall with 2 inches.
Stack Is The Easy Way.
Plastic storage bins are one of the great garage storage systems to separate and organize your equipment by sport or season. Unfortunately, they usually piled up against a wall somewhere, making the bottom compartment difficult to obtain, especially for your home Littlesters teammates. Fortunately, a permanent DIY garage solution is only a weekend away with our easy-to-build storage towers which are an attractive and simple way to provide easy access to your compartment. Consider different color bins for each sport, to find out what air and wood you need for wall-mounted items such as fishing rod holders or utility hooks for light equipment.
Car Care Product Cabinet
Organize your auto lubricants, liquids, and other items in this simple shelf/work table cabinet. You can mount a folding-door on special hinges, but we’ll show you a faster way to organize your garage in which the hardware requires just a few bucks. Find everything you need to know to make this cabinet.
Store more on the walls
If you only mount hooks, brackets, and other hardware on the studs, then you are wasting a lot of opportunity for garage wall ideas. The best strategy is to add a layer of plywood about three-quarters of an inch above the drywall or bare studs. This gives you a continuous fastening surface so that you can easily mount storage hardware, arrange items in a space-efficient manner, and cram more items on the wall. See how we doubled the storage capacity of this wall with plywood and inexpensive hardware.
Canvas storage bag decoration
Protect seasonal decorations of garage trees and flowers from artificial dust and dirt by storing them in canvas storage bags. Tuck a dryer sheet before zipping to prevent bugs and critters.
Garage Ceiling Track Storage
Get those big plastic storage bins on the garage floor and roof! 2x2s screw-on the roof with 3-2 / 2-inch. The punches are spread every 2 feet. Use the bins as a guide to spacing 2x2s. The lip in the compartment should just brush against the 2x2s when you are moving the compartment in place. Then 2×2 with the 2-inch center and screw 1×4 garage is an ideal place for storing light and medium weight seasonal items such as roof and holiday camping decorations.
Garage Corner Shelves
Who can’t use some more shelves in a garage? You already have shelves in clear places, but what’s in the corners? This nifty corner shelf unit takes advantage of existing studs and is faster, easier, and cheaper. And it is great for storing ideas. Use scrap plywood or oriented strand board to make shelves comfortably between corner studs and support them with a 1×1 flat. These corner shelves are perfect for storing small items such as glues, oil, wax, and polish, which are lost on large shelves.
Overhead storage in the garage
Stack overhead by connecting together a simple rack with 2 “PVC pipe and fittings. Bolt the roof pipe directly support the heavy load and fully stabilize the angled piece with an ‘A’ connector in a cross brace. A smooth surface for PVC makes for easy loading and unloading.
Garage storage tube
Cardboard concrete making tubes are inexpensive ($ 7 at any home center or meet them online at Amazon) and provide baseball bats, long-handled equipment, and a great place to roll just about anything. Rest the tubes on a piece of 2×4 to keep them high and dry. Secure each tube to the garage stud with a plumbing strap.
Garage-wall tool holder
If you have a lot of rakes, shovels, brooms, and garden tools that are closing your garage but don’t have a lot of walls to hang on them, try this. Cut two 16 x 16-inch pieces from 1/2-inch plywood and screw them slightly upward onto a wall stud. Then slide into your tool.
