How to maximise your overhead garage storage space


Have you been running short of garage storage ideas recently? Have you thought about decluttering your garage, but just can’t seem to get rid of some things? Or have you felt like there simply isn’t enough space in your home for all the things you have? If you’ve ever found yourself asking these questions, all you need to do is have a look all around you – up, down and sideways. You’ll find the most free space comes from places you’re least likely to think of, and the most common is your overhead storage.

There’s more ways to make use of your overhead storage space than you think, and at Pinnacle Hardware, we’ve got just the right equipment to help you maximise its full potential. Read on to find a few garage storage ideas that could get you inspired the next time you find yourself staring at the ceiling.


Do you ever start sorting through the garage to clean it out once and for all, but find there are certain objects you attach great sentimental value to and can’t bear to throw away? Don’t worry, we’re not judging you. If your home is the kind that hoards things for the future, using your garage’s overhead space is the best way to store items that are only accessed once in a blue moon. One of the best garage storage ideas is to organise your stuff in tubs, then place them on our wall mounted shelves. Their heavy duty capabilities are ideal for keeping your timeless family treasures safe.


Children have a natural tendency to get curious about the world around them, but not everything in the garage is safe for them to handle. If your garage also includes a kids’ play area, then it’s a good idea to keep hazardous substances far out of the reach of little hands. An ideal solution is to stow them away safely in a closed overhead cabinet or slimline cabinet, which uses gas struts to open and close – easy for adults, but not so much for kids! Here’s a tutorial on how to easily put together our Pinnacle range of slimline cabinets.


We’ve talked about garage storage ideas for overhead shelf space, but does that also include the ceiling? You bet it does! With the help of some heavy duty, long-lasting ceiling hooks, you can free up even more space on the floor by maximising your raised storage. They’re also a great way to spruce up your home and elevate its aesthetic appeal. Ceiling hooks are great for setting up an indoor garden for the whole family to enjoy, from hanging basket planters to herb drying racks. They’re also handy to hang up lights when the festive season rolls around!


Hooks of all kinds will be your best friends when it comes to garage storage ideas for your overhead space. If you have very large or lengthy items that take up too much space when stored horizontally, it might be worth considering storing them vertically instead. By setting up a rack or a set of hanging hooks closer to the ceiling, you can hang up anything from coats and umbrellas to more unwieldy objects like brooms, shovels, and fishing rods – and even your bike, with our vertical bike hanger. You’ll be amazed at how much space you have to move around afterwards, and how much easier it is to locate things from their place on the wall.


When you’re thinking out of the box for the best garage storage ideas, there’s no better place to turn than Pinnacle Hardware. From modular storage stations to heavy duty shelving, to pegboards for your wall, we’ve got it all. Our commitment to high quality and great design means you have a home storage setup that’ll last the course of time.
