Before installing the garage shelving or cabinets make a sketch of your garage and consider its main uses. If you are going to park your car in the garage, include it in the diagram. Work with the rest of the space to create zones based on how you want to use your garage. Areas may include gardening, lawn care, art supplies, sporting goods and tools.
They have cabinets and garage shelving built according to the needs of each area. For example, if you are an avid gardener, have waist height lockers and use the top surface as a workspace for potted plants. If you have a lot of tools, set up a column of shallow drawers for separating bits, screwdrivers and other small objects. If everyone in your family has a bicycle, build cabinets in the upper half of a wall and use the space below to store bicycles and other sports equipment.
Refrigerators, surfboards and artificial Christmas trees take up a lot of space in your garage. Because your family only uses these items a few months a year, keep them in less accessible garage shelving and move the things you use more frequently to the most convenient locations. In this way, you will only have to exit the ladder a couple of times a year.
