Ask anyone to name the most cluttered area of his or her home and that person is likely to say it is the garage. It is a catchall area that can quickly become disorganized and crowded. You can gain control of your garage with a few handy garage organizers.
Start small with a Utility/Storage Base Cabinet. This 30-inch wide, 20 1/4 inch deep, and 36 3/8 inch high cabinet features two adjustable shelves behind firmly latching doors. It can hold up to 75 pounds per shelf of whatever you need to store out of sight. Oil, coolant, or other fluids from your car can be organized inside this cabinet, or you can store garden tools, nails, screws or other items. Its height is perfect to give you a work area or more storage on its top. The color is light taupe and the resin construction is easy to clean. Blue handles on the doors give it a pop of color to brighten up the typically dark space inside your garage. This unit is easy to assemble, too, requiring no tools. You’ll be able to put it together quickly and then start organizing your garage right away.
The Tall Utility Cabinet holds even more items on its four adjustable shelves. Like the smaller unit, the shelves inside this 72 3/8 inch high cabinet can hold up to 75 pounds each. It is also easy to assemble-without the need for tools-and can go right to work in organizing your garage. Fill it with everything you need to keep your car running in tip-top condition. Or store fertilizers, weed killers, and garden tools on its sturdy shelves. You’ll be amazed at how uncluttered your garage will look with the simple addition of this attractive utility cabinet.
If your garage clutter comes from your collection of garden tools, consider mounting the Tool Hanger Kit on one of the garage walls. This strong hanger kit features one slat wall strip that mounts to the wall plus two 8-inch D-Hooks and one J-Hook from which to hang rakes, shovels, brooms and more. In gray and black, it will blend into the garage unobtrusively and will look much neater than simple hooks screwed into the studs behind the walls. All your yard tools will be off the floor and within easy reach when you store them on this useful hanger.
If your collection of tools has grown over the years and wall space in the garage is at a minimum, the Tool Rack with Wheels offers a great solution. The rack holds over thirty tools in side-access slots that are outfitted with clips to keep those tools in place. With a steel core, this tool rack is sturdy and durably. It can be assembled in five minutes without the need for tools, and you can load it just as quickly. Four casters allow you to move the unit easily, which means your rakes, brooms, shovels and other tools will always be in place when you need them. The light taupe color looks clean and tidy-and so will your garage once you’ve put this handy rack to use.
If you already have cabinets or a workbench in place, but still cannot find what you need in your garage, mount the Workbench Kit on the wall. This simple unit features a wall strip that is 48 inches wide and six inches high, and it comes with a screwdriver holder, a small tool rack, a basket and two resin bins. This useful unit will hold small tools such as screwdrivers, hammers, or pliers on the tool rack. The basket is a great place to store glues or aerosol paint cans while the bins are perfect for nails or screws. The items you need will always be within easy reach when you store them in this handy organizer.
Free Standing Garage Shelves give you another option for storage in your garage. You’ll be able to store the items that you need on these sturdy steel shelves and be able to see what you are looking for at a glance. No tools are needed to install this set of shelves. Simply unfold it and lean it against a wall. Rubber tips on the back prevent wall damage while the slant of the legs make use of gravity to keep the shelves in place. The four shelves sit in a frame that is 64 inches high and 35 inches wide, providing you with all the space you need to store buckets, boxes or bags of supplies within easy reach.
These are just a few of the garage organizers that are available to help you keep the clutter in your garage to a minimum. Pick one type for a sleek, clean look, or mix and match different units to meet all of your storage needs.
