Choosing Garage Storage and Where to Begin

Getting ready to re-organize the way you do garage storage? It's always wise to take a peek and see what has been working for other people. You’re obviously not obligated to choose the same options that your neighbor does, but it’s always good to know what’s out there.

Garage Storage: Keeping Up with the Joneses

A breakdown of the most popular garage storage options:

Wall Mounted Racks

Wall mounted racks have become more popular in the past few years for the same reason that pegboards have been standard in storing tools for so long: flexibility. These, sturdy, installed racks stay put and are built to hold hooks, shelves and tool or item specific racks like for things like skis, surfboards or shovels. As the items in your garage storage change, you can remove, replace and rearrange hooks and shelves very easily and without the need to use any tools at all.

Ceiling Storage and Lofts

Hanging units for tubs and boxes are a great way to store infrequently used items out of the way in a space-efficient way. Options for ceiling storage solutions in your garage run from wooden lofts to pulley systems, and should be planned in consultation with an expert.

Wall-Mounted Cabinets

Although slightly less efficient and flexible than other options, wall-mounted cabinets are more pleasing to the eye than rows of junk boxes or dirty tools. They also do a much better job protecting your items from the elements, light, and insects.


One of the most simple garage storage solutions is wall shelving units. Shelves offer easy accessibility and, depending on what type of box or tub storage you use, make it very easy to visually take stock of what you have in our garage and where it is located.
