Garage storage ideas

Here are some creative and practical garage storage ideas to help you maximise space and keep your garage organised.


Overhead storage racks
Install sturdy overhead storage racks to take advantage of vertical space. Use them to store bins, boxes, and seasonal items that are not frequently accessed.

Wall-mounted shelves
Utilize wall space by installing adjustable wall-mounted shelves. They are perfect for storing tools, gardening supplies, and small items, keeping them off the floor and within easy reach.

Install pegboards on your garage walls to create customisable storage for tools, sports equipment, and accessories. Hang hooks, baskets, and shelves on the pegboard to keep items organised and visible. 

Cabinets and lockers
Invest in cabinets or lockers with doors to conceal clutter and protect items from dust and debris. Use them to store chemicals, paints, automotive supplies, and other items that need to be kept out of reach.

Bike racks
Install bike racks or hooks on the walls or ceiling to store bicycles vertically and free up floor space. You can also use bike racks to store other large items like ladders and outdoor gear.

Magnetic strips
Mount magnetic strips on the walls to store metal tools and small metal items such as screws, nails, and drill bits. This keeps them organised and easily accessible while saving drawer space.

Tool chests and workbenches
Invest in a sturdy tool chest or workbench with built-in storage drawers and cabinets. This provides a designated workspace for projects and keeps tools organised and easily accessible.

Stackable storage bins
Use stackable storage bins to organise smaller items such as nuts, bolts, screws, and gardening supplies. Label the bins for easy identification and stack them on shelves or in cabinets.

Ceiling-mounted hoists
Install ceiling-mounted hoists or pulley systems to lift and store bulky items such as kayaks, canoes, or storage bins. This maximises floor space and keeps items safely out of the way.

Rolling carts and utility caddies
Use rolling carts or utility caddies to store frequently used tools and supplies. These can be easily moved around the garage as needed and provide additional storage space.


By implementing these garage storage ideas, you can transform your garage into a functional and organised space that meets your storage needs while keeping clutter at bay.
