Every home needs storage space, whether in your loft, closets or simply throughout the home. Most people require more storage space than their house can provide, especially when it comes to larger possessions you use infrequently. A Garage is an ideal dedicated storage location for out-of-the-way yet easy access to your private belongings.
It used to be that a garage was where you kept the car, but this no longer applies to the majority of garage owners. In fact, nearly six million UK garages are not used for cars as they’re too full of junk. In this case, it’s important to ensure your garage space is adequately organised to ensure it doesn’t become a cluttered mess and a hassle to find what you’re looking for.
At GarageFlex, we offer a wide range of storage solutions to improve garage storage and help you make the most of your garage, but first, you need to make sure your garage is ready for them.
How do I maximise my garage storage?
Before you can improve garage storage, you’ll need to tidy up your existing garage. Decluttering your items to clear out the area can give you a better look at how to organise the garage best. Also, by emptying the garage of your belongings, you can invest in a resin MMA floor to make for an aesthetically appealing visual before you install storage solutions.
To improve garage storage, we suggest utilising the room efficiently. By this, we mean incorporating smart garage wall storage to make the most of the garage wall space. There are various options available, including:
GarageFlex FlexiPanel Wall Storage
The FlexiPanel is a wall panelling that can hold various storage accessories, including hooks, racks, baskets and more.
FlexiPanel is visually impressive, offering a bright white space that can hide the original brickwork while having the functional ability to insulate behind the panels and hold various accessories. You can decide to cover the entire garage with FlexiPanel to maximise the storage opportunity or choose just one or two walls. Hence the name; the flexible storage solution is modular, allowing you to easily unclip accessories and move them around as and when you need to.
GarageFlex FlexTrack Wall Storage
FlexiTrack is a small length of track that you can fix to garage walls to hold the same storage accessories as FlexiPanel.
FlexiTrack can be fitted at any height and cut to fit the available space making them extremely useful for places with limited space. It can provide ample storage options for larger items, which you can adjust effortlessly to accommodate your changing needs. Multiple lengths of FlexiTrack can be installed around the garage to provide a suitable amount of storage for your requirements as an alternative to covering an entire wall.
The majority of the GarageFlex storage range is designed to clip onto either of the above options rather than attach directly to the garage wall.
Garage Ceiling Storage Options
Your walls are just some of the areas of your garage you can use for storage. You should also consider the vertical space available and make the most of the garage ceiling storage space for storing possessions in an accessible yet out-of-the-way place.
GarageFlex PowerTrack Ceiling Storage
Powertrack is a channel installed into the ceiling, allowing hooks and hangers to slide along easily so you can move your belongings around the garage.
Similar to FlexTrack, you can cut PowerTrack to your desired size. Its straightforward modular design means you can replace the hooks and racks depending on what you want hanging without needing nails or screws. Overhead storage racks are ideal for big bulky, seasonal items that you rarely use and can be stored long-term, such as Christmas decorations, ladders, and garden equipment.
