The garage often becomes a catchall for the multitude of items that don’t fit elsewhere in the house. The balls, tools, and half broken garden games all seem to find their way there over time. After a while the garage can become an impassable wreckage of different seasons, but it doesn’t have to be that way! With these clever garage storage solutions you can fit everything in and still be able to park the car. Read on to find out what garage storage ideas you can use at home…
Garage Storage Solutions
1. Magnetise Your Drill Bits
Instead of scrabbling to find the right bit each time, keep them all carefully stored and easily accessible with a magnetic strip.
2. Wall Storage
Save yourself floor space with this simple, but effective, wall rack for your bikes. All you need is two blocks of wood and a bungee cord to start creating your very own bike rack.
3. Foldaway Workshop
If your garage also doubles as your workshop, this foldaway worktable may be your solution to constantly edging round your workbench to grab the bike pump.
4. Ceiling Storage
Transfer all your lighter and less-used stuff into ceiling storage. This clever idea in our garage storage solutions means that you can get easily to all your useful tools throughout the year.
5. Rack Your Tools
Speaking of tools, take a moment to organise your gardening essentials with the help of some PVC tubing. This clever approach will prevent any cartoon-style injuries with the rake…
6. Pipe Up
Don’t pipe down, pipe up! Place your odd bits of wood and other long materials in a tube on the roof and prevent the inevitable timberrrr moment.
7. Don’t Get Screwed
Corral your unruly nails and screws at arms length. Screw the lids of your jam jars into the bottom of your shelf and fill them with nails. You can easily screw and unscrew the jars without filling up precious workbench space.
8. Fold It Up
Fist you had folding worktables, now you have folding bikes. Keep your bikes safely stored on the ceiling and never have to suffer a bent tire again when you misjudge your distance from the wall.
9. Bungee Cord Ball Storage
Sports are healthy, fun and a great family activity, but the balls are a storage nightmare. Prevent yourself from being buried beneath an avalanche of balls by using bungee cords. The cords allow you to easily insert and remove balls without having to unpack every one.
