A garage provides a safe space, not only for your car but also for your tools that you no longer use. If your garage is cluttered, you might be thinking that the only solution is to enlarge it. Hold on to your money a little longer. With only a few simple additions, you can end up saving more space in your garage. The following tips can help you transform your garage into a sufficient space for everything that you like to do in addition to parking your car:

Doors

Consider switching to roller shutter doors, which open vertically to maximise space inside the garage. These doors are mounted just right behind the garage opening since they don’t need frames. Once you replace the doors, you can use the newly created space to store your belongings or for parking your car.

Shelves

If your garage doesn’t have shelves against the walls, then you are missing out on some valuable storage space. There are different types of racks that you can use based on their intended use. You can use steel shelving to store bulky items and plywood shelves to store lighter items. Shelves are easy to install manually. If you don’t have experience in these installations, leave the job to a professional.

Ceiling Storage

You can convert your garage ceiling into a useful storage space using a combination of support carriages and plastic bins. Overhead space is for lighter items that you don’t use quite often. Installation should also be done carefully to prevent accidents. It is a good idea to add ceiling storage towards those sides of the garage rather than through the middle.

Your garage might have seemed bigger when you moved in than now. However, before you think of expanding its size, consider these organisation tips. Once these storage options are in place, ask your family members to help you organise everything in the garage.
