4 Garage Updates Ideal for Organization and Saving Space

House Garage

Garages in our home often become a dumping ground for supplies, outdoor toys, and items we do not want to leave outside or store in the house. Over time, items may easily pile up and create a lot of clutter in the garage.

To help keep the garage organized, consider the installation of multiple updates. A refreshed garage provides a way to get rid of junk and keep the essentials on hand for when you need them. Each upgrade offers different options for a variety of common garage items.

1. Doorless Lockers

Much like you see open lockers in the locker room of a professional sports team, your garage may be fitted with the same design. A set of open lockers gives each person in the home their own personal garage space.

The open locker may used to hold individual items like work shoes, snow gear, or specific items like roller blades, roller skates, or ice skates. Any time you need to look and find a specific item, your own locker will be the first place to look.

A locker may contain small shelves, cubby holes, or hanging hooks. Customize the finished design to your needs and organization. The use of name plates or painted letters allows you to customize each locker to a specific person.

2. Mesh Fabric Baskets

Often, a garage will have items that cannot sit on a shelf. To help keep these items organized, consider the installation of one or more mesh fabric baskets. For example, if you own a lot of sports balls, then the mesh baskets would be an ideal way to pile the balls up and prevent them from rolling all over the garage.

Mesh baskets are also ideal for soft items like deflated pool floats or pool noodles. The awkward sizes of the items are ideal for alternative storage methods like mesh basket. The open top on the basket makes access to the items inside quick and easy.

3. Wall Cabinets

Some things in a garage you don’t need to use or see on a daily basis. Also, in a home with children, you may have some items you don’t want them to access. To help with these items, consider installing high wall cabinets.

The higher cabinets still leave enough room for a car to park, and they provide the safety of holding items at a higher location. For example, you may have some wasp and hornet spray you keep in the cabinet. Other sprays or cleaners like a rust and metal lubricant may also be kept in the cabinet.

Dangerous tools like drills or saws could be kept out of sight in the cabinet. You also have the option of installing cabinet doors with built-in locks. The extra security ensures your garage is safe for all ages.

4. Open Racks

One of the easiest and convenient upgrades for the interior of a garage is an open rack system. A multitude of items can may be placed on an open rack. The racks come in multiple sizes and you can anchor the installation to the wall to support high-weight items.

Some examples of items you can keep on open racks include storage bins, camping supplies, and large balls. The back wall of a garage is an ideal area for these racks.

You also have the option to mix and match the various garage upgrades you install. For example, you may have the left and right side of the back garage wall feature racks while the middle section has multiple lockers for more organization.

    Todd at A Tech did an awesome job setting up all the electronics in our basement. We have surround sound and all of the electronics are hidden in a closet with only 1 remote. My husband is techy so he worked with A Tech more than I did but my only request to Todd was that I needed to be able to watch tv and play a dvd without asking for help (I am not techy!) One fabulous remote runs everything and has pictures and an easy menu! They also fixed the internet issue in our house! Very Happy Customers!

    Todd designed a whole house audio system with separate controls for every room with one receiver. He was extremely knowledgeable about speaker placement, size and quality. The end product is amazing. He also recommended a remote that controls everything. This is one of my favorite features. I have also purchased several items for my garage organization that I love. They have everything from home audio, garage organization to kitchen items in the store. Will continue to do business with them as I still need closet organization.

    We have had our Beam Central Vac for over 15 years and absolutely love it! It is convenient, easy to use and best of all - keeps the 'dust' out of the home!. We have had very good service when we needed it, we replaced the motor in the unit once (very reasonable) and had replaced the power brush handle once. Pretty good for a unit that is over 15 years old! The folks at A Tech Easy Living Store are knowledgeable and very willing to assist in any way they can. Highly recommend visiting the store! They have LOTS of items that can make your life easier in your home!

    Great products! Exceptional Service! I was out of idea for what to buy my wife. I stopped at The Easy Living Store and they had all I needed to make her happy. I would have never thought of a self opening garbage can as a great gift idea, but they said she would love it and she did! I was amazed at everything the store had to offer and how helpful the staff was there. I will go back.

    Todd did an awesome job getting all the components into our basement home theater system that my techy husband wanted plus making it easy for me to run with only one remote. We are very happy! The guys that came to install the systems were polite and patient with me and took time to explain how to work it all!

    I have hard wood floors and Beam has a attachment I bought it at the store and it is a God send I simply love it, it is a dry mop on the vac! Amazing! I'm buying a spare mop when I go back! I bought my vac at Van Berkum's in Pella (Where I live) never will I go back there, they sent my head out for as a loaner and gave me some one elses. How is that for doing business! We argued for a long time about this and was getting no where she kept saying that it was my head, I will never go back there to buy anything! I'm 60 minutes from Des Moines and I will take my vac to be serviced at the Easy Living Store anytime!

    wish every home repair could be this easy!!! My central vacuum was having issues, burned out motor, poor connection and an outlet issue. The technician called me a bit early and said he was ahead of schedule, perfect! He was waiting when i got there, diagnosed it in about 10 minutes, I asked how long it would take to get the parts, he said he had them on the truck! I thought maybe they were generic, but when they made the appt they asked what model. He made the right diagnosis and fixed in about 20 minutes! Couldn't really ask for much more!!! The only remote downside was when I called on saturday the lady asked me to call back on monday. Great service and a great experience!

    I live in a 50's home. I had A Tech come and redo my closets for me. They had great ideas, listened to my input and now I have great closets, even though I live in an older home!
