Congratulations! You just purchased a new home, and you have a dream garage in mind. But how do you plan for a new garage build, and what do you need to include in the design to get the most use out of the space? Sunset Builders, Inc. is here to explain some critical components that will help you maximize your garage space.
Organization Is Key
The first step to maximizing space in your garage is getting organized. This means investing in cabinets and shelves that will house all of your tools and supplies. The best way to do this is by organizing items according to type or purpose, such as gardening supplies, automotive care products, sports equipment, etc. If possible, keep similar items together so that they are easier to find, when needed. Additionally, adding labels will help save time when searching for specific items.
Maximizing Wall Space
In addition to organization, maximizing wall space is key when creating an efficient workspace in your garage. One way to do this is by using pegboards or slat walls as storage solutions. These units are great for hanging tools, small parts containers, and other supplies. You can also add wall-mounted shelving units or overhead storage bins for larger items such as bikes or kayaks. Lastly, add wall-mounted workbenches with integrated lighting to keep workspaces off the floor.
Good lighting is essential when working in a garage because it not only illuminates dark corners but also serves as an effective deterrent against theft. For general lighting purposes, fluorescent bulbs are always a good choice because they provide bright illumination without consuming too much electricity. However, LED lights are best since they use even less energy and last much longer!
