What’s the most overlooked space in your home? We think it has to be the garage ceiling as it’s an untapped source of space that’s just crying out to be used. While many of us (that includes us too!) focus on the organisation of the garage wall or tidying up the floor space, we tend to forget about the vast expanse of unused space right above our heads.
In this blog, we’ll explore some key points as to why you should consider utilising the garage ceiling for storage. From maximising space efficiency to decluttering your living areas, your garage will soon be a well organised and functional storage space!
So without further delay, let’s dive deeper into why you should utilise the ceiling in your garage…
The garage ceiling is an underutilised area in most homes but by using it for storage, you can free up valuable wall and floor space, making your garage feel more spacious. This can allow the floor space to be used for more of the things you love such as storing classic cars, gym equipment or a pool table.
Easier to Clean
Clearing up the floor space reduces clutter lying around which makes it easier to clean the space up. It also reduces the chance of falling over items left on the floor so increases safety for the whole family.
With a ceiling storage system, you can create a more organised space. Try categorising items, labelling boxes and using hooks and racks to keep items visible whilst being easily accessible.
The ceiling can accommodate a wide range of items and is useful for items you don’t need access to year round such as Christmas decorations or camping gear. And you can rotate items around depending on the season.
Protect your belongings
Using the ceiling can be helpful in protecting your belongings vs leaving them leaning on the garage wall. No longer are they in the way of water, leaves, pests or any accidental spills.
There are many options availalble such as overhead racks, hoists and hooks so you can create a tailored space that really works for you and your home. You might like to check out our fantastic range of overhead storage which is available for DIY Installation by buying from our store, or you can build it into your garage project with one of our experts.
Utilising the garage ceiling is often a lot more cost effective than renting an off-site storage unit so an easy win or the household finances.
It’s a long-term investment
Once you’ve installed a good range of hooks, racks and hoists, you can relax knowing that your storage needs are satisfied, at least for now! Look at it as a long-term investment that will give you years of good storage options.
