It’s not uncommon for our garages, workshops, and garden sheds to become the place where everything that doesn’t have a place gets put. And without the right storage solution and an easy system for organising stuff, this can only mean one thing – chaotic mess and frustration.
This article is part of a series of garage makeovers that demonstrate how easy it can be to get your garage or garden shed organised with everything in its place.
Michelle and Andrew Gilbert recently decided to organize their garage with an easy and affordable storage solution that suits their needs and can be extended and adapted over time.
Inventory and Measure Up
The first step in this situation is always to get all of your stuff out of the space and go through it, sorting your belongings into three piles: Keep, Throw Out and Donate or Sell. Once you have evaluated your stuff to see what is actually going back into the space and have measured it, you can now start to think about what storage products might be best suited to your needs.
Selecting the Right Storage Products
At Pinnacle Hardware, you’ll find plenty of garage shelving ideas and workbench ideas, as well as cabinets, hooks and modular storage to help you with your space. For Andrew and Michelle, we decided to go with this storage solution:
ASSEMBLY, POSITIONING AND STACKING ITEMS USING OUR STORAGE ZONES SYSTEM
After a quick trip to Bunnings, Andrew and Michelle unpack the car and are ready to make a start. The easy-to-follow instructions make it simple for them to knock together the first shelving unit. All they need is a rubber mallet! And the remaining storage items were as simple as 1, 2, 3. The kids even help with the finishing touches.
Large, heavy items are stored close to the ground. Everyday items are in the middle. Seasonal items are put on the top shelves, and valuable or dangerous items are in the lockable cabinet. And the bike hooks help create a lot of space and organisation, getting the bikes up off the floor and vertical to save room, while the other hooks help keep things like the fishing rods safely out of the way.
See the Before and After
The result is a clutter-free space where Michelle and Andrew’s stuff is well-organised and easily accessible.
