Flexible Storage System

A flexible wall storage system in your garage helps you design a storage that works on that narrow alley between your garage's side wall and your car while also creating a solid space where you can pretty much mount your shelves and hooks that can carry a significant amount of weight. With this in place, you save space in your garage while keeping things in order.

Car Products Cabinet

So your auto lubricants, fluids, and other items are all in one place, get a cabinet built just for them. You can also attach a fold-up door that can also function as a worktable. Check this DIY tip on how you can have this really cool car care cabinet right at your own garage.

Your Walls Are Key

It makes a lot of sense to utilize your walls as your primary storage area because that means less storage bins, boxes, and other stuff are going to occupy the ground surface of your garage. Temporary storage ideas would include mount hooks and brackets but the best strategy would be to add a 3/4 inch plywood over the dry wall. It's easy, versatile, and looks much better than using hooks.

Corner Shelves

You can never have enough corner shelves in your garage. For as long as there's a vacant or unused space like those corners, a shelf needs to be built. Remember, the key to keeping your garage organized is make sure that everything is in place and that there's a place for everything. 

Heavy Duty Rack

Those shelves that you have on the wall are great but there are times when they are just not up to the task especially when you need to store items that weigh a thousand pounds. This is when heavy duty racks are a must in any garage. These racks from Gladiator hold up to 1,500 pounds of weight per shelf.
