Overhead Garage Storage Options
These days, storage is a major issue in almost all households. Everyone wants more storage space! One of the most common places people look to for more storage space is the garage. Here are some easy ways to make the most of your garage space when it comes to storage:
Shelving in the garage
Overhead shelving is a great idea for storing tools and other materials you use in the garage regularly. These shelves can be built easily and are a great way to save space without crowding up the garage. Here are some easy instructions on how to build garage shelving:
First of all, you’ll need to measure the space where you want to install the shelving. You’ll want shelving that is at least 16 inches in length, but the width and height of the shelving is up to the homeowner. However, you should make sure that the shelving will be able to support the weight of the objects you’ll be storing on them.
If you install the shelving higher up, you might want to use them to store items that you don’t use often, like Christmas or Halloween decorations. You’ll need to have 3 evenly spaced supports installed, as well as a plywood floor to support the shelf in its entirety.
Hooks for bicycles
Bicycles are objects that take up perhaps the most space in a garage than anything else. That’s why it’s so important to make sure that you have an efficient way to store them so that they don’t waste valuable garage space. One of the easiest and most efficient ways to store bikes is to place hooks and hang the bicycles along the walls of a garage. Another way to store bicycles is by installing a pulley system!
Installing an extension ladder to the ceiling of the garage is a great way to save space in a garage. However, in order for this to be successful, homeowners must make sure that the ladder extension is installed properly. If it isn’t, not only will it be a waste, but it will also be a safety hazard.
Additional brackets to store objects
Wheelbarrows and other such heavy objects can be stored by adding more brackets to the garage. Brackets aren’t hard to install and can go a long way when it comes to garage storage solutions.
