Organizing Your Garage On A Budget
Getting your garage organized doesn’t have to be an expensive undertaking. In fact, we offer a number of storage solutions that are affordable and also work really well for storing a variety of items. Between slat wall and overhead storage racks, you should easily be able to get your garage organized affordably.
Slat Wall Panels & Accessories
You can store just about anything you’re keeping in the garage on the wall and off the floor using slat wall panels and accessories. The slat wall panels we offer on GarageCabinets.com are strong, durable, and manufactured right here in the USA (just like our garage cabinets).
These slat wall panels are moisture, water, and scratch resistant. Plus the panel profile helps prohibit water puddles from occurring within the slats. They are made of a 100% recyclable PVC material and available in 8 different colors (with color matching screws and trim as well).
Another great feature of slat wall panels and accessories is how easy they are to install. The panels screw directly into the studs of your garage walls; while the accessories “hook” into the slats. Both are easy to use as well. Any member of the family (or even houseguests) can quickly and easily locate an item. And the best part about that is when they’re done using that particular item, there shouldn’t be any problems putting it back in the right place.
Now that you know the features, I bet you’re just dying to know what you can store on these, huh? Well, here are a few ideas…
Whether you need to store just one, or bicycles for a family of six, slat wall panels and accessories make it easy.
Our horizontal bike rack is perfect for the avid biker. With this solution, your bicycle hangs on the wall horizontally. Besides the hooks for hanging your bike, this accessory also comes with water bottle holders, hooks for helmets, and a basket area for all your other biking accessories.
We also offer a 5” bike hook if you’re looking for a simpler bicycle storage solution. With this accessory, your bike hangs on the wall vertically from one of the tires.
This group of items could easily qualify as the most difficult stuff to store off the floor. There’s really no easy way to store sports balls on the wall. Those awkward, oblong items (i.e. golf clubs, skis, baseball bats, hockey sticks, etc.) can be tricky too. Unless you’re using some of the unique slat wall accessories we offer for storing sports equipment on the wall. Our sports accessory rack has space for storing equipment for any number of sports. We also have accessories tailored to specific sports like golf, tennis, fishing, or skiing.
Lawn and garden tools
Tired of tripping over that rake every single time you head out to the car? Slat wall panels and accessories are absolutely perfect for storing rakes, as well as other lawn and garden tools. We offer a variety of hooks for storing shovels, push brooms, rakes, and any number of other long handled tools off the floor.
Do you struggle to keep track of your hammer, screwdriver, and other tools? Do you find yourself having to buy or borrow tools you know you have but just can’t find? You can store all your tools in one place using slat wall accessories specifically designed for tool storage. We offer various tool racks and magnetic toolbars for storing wrenches, screwdrivers, hammers, pliers, and more.
And that’s just scratching the surface of what you can do with slat wall panels and accessories! Check out our full line-up of panels and accessories here: http://www.garagecabinets.com/6-slat-wall/.
Overhead Storage Racks
One of the most overlooked storage areas in the garage is the storage space offered by the ceiling. What most people don’t realize is that there are storage solutions available which allow you to take advantage of that ceiling storage space.
Overhead storage racks are great for storing things neatly and efficiently. It’s the perfect solution for getting plastic totes, boxes, seasonal items, and other sparingly used things you’re storing in the garage off the floor.
The overhead racks we offer are made entirely of steel and have a durable powder coat finish. All of our storage racks have adjustable heights and are available in a number of dimensions to accommodate nearly any space.
