A Guide to Garage Organization Remodels for Family Homes

Garage Organization Remodels

For many homes with families, a garage quickly becomes a place to dump bikes, dirty shoes, and outdoor items you do not want in the home. The organization of your garage can go a long way to provide cleanliness and help make the garage more useful on a daily basis.

Follow our guide to help brainstorm ideas for your garage and how upgrades and remodels will help the whole family.

Built-In Locker Shelves

Tote bins and shelving units can take up a lot of space inside a garage. Add organization options and save space with the installation of built-in locker shelves. The open space of a locker allows children to easily grab items and return them. With multiple built-in locker shelves, each person in the family can have their own locker to keep items.

The long vertical space has plenty of room to hold baseball bats, hockey sticks, and other outdoor items. Built-in hooks allows kids to hang up jackets, hats, and other outdoor items. Locker features may include cubby holes, small cabinet doors, and places to put shoes.

When built into the wall space, the open space in your garage still has room for tool areas, car parking, or other hobbies like a workout. You may add custom details to each locker space including paint colors and nameplates on the top of the lockers.


Many families will have outdoor and recreational items that are oblong and oversized. To avoid messes, install permanent baskets on the walls of garages. Large mesh baskets help organize pool toys like noodles and floats. Use baskets to hold a variety of balls, like basketballs and volleyballs.

Smaller baskets will help organize outdoor items by type. For example, keep toy shovels, trucks, and digging toys all in one basket. Keep outdoor games like Frisbee discs, paddles, and baseball gloves in another basket. Once you set up a system and teach your children, your garage will remain clean and organized.

Pegboard Walls

The back wall of a garage is an ideal location to place a pegboard wall organizer. While dangerous tools like saws and power drills should be locked in toolbox, a peg wall offers easy organization for tools and items. Hang hooks in the peg wall holes. The open holes allow you to place hooks in different locations as needed.

For example, you can measure and hang two hooks to easily place a rake up on the wall. Smaller hooks provide spots for screwdrivers, hammers, and other tools you want quick access for. The hooks used on pegboards can also hold miscellaneous items like rolls of tape, including duct tape, masking tape, and electrical tape. 

As you purchase more items, the flexibility of a pegboard wall allows you to move items around and adjust as needed.

Snack Bar

When children spend a lot of time playing outdoors, they often will come inside a house for snacks and drinks. As an alternative to children constantly coming in and out of the house, consider the installation of a snack bar for the garage. A snack bar would consist of a mini-fridge, baskets for snacks, and disposable items like paper cups and plastic forks.

Stock a mini-fridge with drink options and offer quick snacks. You may also want to place a small trash can near the snack bar so the area stays clean and organized. Children will have easy access to snacks and you can also limit what snacks are available for each day. For example, you may offer healthy fruit options at the snack bar.

    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.

    This is the perfect place to go when you have no idea what to get your relatives for Christmas/birthdays. They have fun gadgets all the way up to amazing electronics. Their customized closets are also something just about anyone can use. Who doesn't want to save some space in their home? Stop by and check it out sometime.

    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!
