Practical Shelving Tips for Your Garage

practical shelving tips for your garage

The garage can be a pretty messy place, right? But that doesn’t have to be the case because there are ways to get things organized and off the floor. Using shelves and bins is one of the best ways to organize the garage. So just think of shelves and containers and transform this part of your house into a clutter free storage space.

Installing a Shelf


Before installing shelves in your garage, measure the space required for you to organize all the stuff in the garage. If you want to store a lot of things in the shelves, make sure that it’s strong enough to hold the size and weight of storage containers. And if you’re going to build the shelves yourself, choose materials that are strong and durable.

Keeping Your Stuff in Storage Bins


Using the same or similar containers will help in the overall look of your garage. See? – Everything in the above image just looks neat and tidy because they’re all the same. In my opinion, see through containers don’t look as neat, so I personally like this type of container better. You can always put labels on the bins – that’s what I do and it lessens the work of trying to remember where everything is.

You and Your Garage

As you can see, simple storage techniques can make your life a lot easier and your garage a lot nicer. So if you have clutter problems in your garage and don’t know where to start – start with the magic of shelving. Believe me, it works wonders!
