Sensational storage solutions installed in Cameron Homes show garage

We are delighted to have just installed our storage solutions into a new development by Cameron Homes in Tatenhill.
Most new build garages are just brick and concrete but the owners of the houses here now have the chance to add in bespoke storage to their garage, before they move in.
We have fitted our storage solutions into the show house garage with plenty of storage options to choose from. The first image below shows our FlexiPanel solution which panels the whole wall and then various hooks, workbenches, bike racks or shelving units can be added to create the ideal space. As little or as much as the customer wants can be purchased.
Dark Grey and Red floor tiles are also added here to show how great the floor can look.

In this next image we have fixed on to the existing wall our FlexiTrack option. These are strips of our panel which can fit anywhere and can be cut to size. Our storage accessories can also be added on to here to take hooks, racks, cabinets and shelves.

We don’t offer a one size fits all solution, we work with our customers to find the right solution for them. We talk through requirements, create drawings and then have our fantastic team of fitters install everything with a ten year warranty.

The event takes place in the Town Hall, an outside marquee and in Falaise Square.  Our trailer will be parked up in the Square (just outside the Town Hall) for the two day show and we would love to see as many old and new friends as possible.

This is also a free event so you can just pop along to see what’s going on.  Our trailer, shown below, gives you a great idea of how good your garage could look.

Tips for cleaning your Garageflex garage

Tips for cleaning your Garageflex garage


Once your garage is complete, there comes a time when it needs a bit of a spruce up to get it back up to scratch .  We’ve put together some helpful cleaning tips for your wall, ceiling and floor so you can get it back to being beautiful again for Spring!


The walls can be kept clean with a feather duster.  But, if any marks get on the FlexiPanel you can remove them with a neutral cleaner or a specialist option such as Silver Sill PVC Restorer which is available to buy on our e-store for £13.50.  This removes ingrained dirt and is solvent free.


The same tip applies to the ceiling.  You may find some static gathers on the ceiling but this can be easily removed with a feather duster or a dry cloth.  For heavier marks use the Silver Sill PVC Restorer as above.

Floor Tiles

These are very easy to look after but you will find the following process will brighten them up no end.

  1. Sweep or vacuum up dust and dirt, remove any larger pieces of debris
  2. Apply a suitable floor cleaner to the floor in the correct dilution and leave for several minutes to breakdown the dirt.  You could try our floor cleaner available on our e-store.
  3. Scrub the floor with a deck scrubber, micro fibre mop or suitable cleaning pad.
  4. Rinse the floor with clean water, removing the dirty water from the floor with a mop and allow to dry.
  5. Any oil or fuel spillages should be cleaned off the floor as soon as possible.

Resin Floors

Tips for cleaning a resin floor are as follows:

  1. Sweep the floor to remove particles, leaves and general dirt
  2. The floor can then be washed using a Power Washer with a light detergent
  3. Oil leaks or spillages can be removed with a damp cloth

If installed by us, your worktop would have had at least one coat of Danish Oil applied.  You can wash it down as and when you like, perhaps applying more oil if you use it on a daily basis.

Activity Racks

Racks such as bike racks, golf racks, shelves and hooks only need a feather duster over them to keep them sparkling clean.

Of course if you have any specific questions, we are always on hand to ask.



Merits of an Organised Garage

Merits of an organised garage - garageflex blog

When it comes to the garage, it is usually a place to store all the clutter.  Whether it be tools, Christmas decorations, out of season toys or sports equipment. We are all guilty of putting items in the garage as we don’t have space in the house, they are a bit messy or we don’t really need them.

And at some point, the garage is going to be so disorganised and full that you HAVE to do something about it.

The solution is clear.  Declutter and organise your garage space.

So here are our thoughts on why you should tackle this task, it might not be pretty but the end result will certainly be worth it.


Benefits of an organised garage include:

Save Time

  • Once you have everything organised in its rightful place, think different zones for tools, sports etc., you can easily find what you need. No more rifling through boxes or piles to find your golf shoes.

More space to store

  • The cleverer you are with your storage solutions in the garage, the more you’ll actually be able to fit in. So you might even be able to free up some of the cupboards in the house if you invest in the right option.

Stop the Spiders

  • Getting rid of the exposed brick or breeze block walls means you eliminate all the nooks and crannies that spiders can hide in. Adding something like white wall panelling keeps things sealed up and clean.

Easy to keep clean

  • If you store everything on your garage wall and ceiling, you’ll have a nice clear garage floor which is easy to clean. You’ll be able to mop around in a jiffy.

Curb Appeal

  • If you’re going the whole hog, upgrading your garage door will give you an instant shot of kerb appeal to your home. Perfect if you are thinking of selling at some point.

Adds Value

  • In this day and age, a lot of newer properties lack storage space. By investing in clever storage options, you’ll certainly add value to your home.

Space for your Car?

  • If your car is your pride and joy, who wants to leave it on the driveway overnight. Keep it safe and out of the rain and snow by storing it in your garage.  Keeping everything organised in your garage might allow you to have space to store your car.

A safer place for all the family

  • When a garage is cluttered there are so many hazards around. Little children can easily hurt themselves by pulling items down on top of them or the elderly might trip over trailing items.  Storing items properly on the walls and ceiling get rid of this problem and allow you to provide a safe environment for all the family.

A brighter place

  • Installing wall panelling on your garage wall brightens up the garage and allows light to bounce around the room. Of course you’ll still need lights in there for dark days but it is incredible how much light this can bring into the garage space.
