How to set up your garage shelving like a pro

If you’re setting up a new garage, you’ll want to make sure you’re making the best use of all your newly available space. Or if you’re reorganising your garage, you’re probably thinking of decluttering so you can create even more garage storage than ever before.

Whatever the case may be, you have a fun weekend project on your hands, with plenty of garage shelving ideas you can implement. Of course, to bring them to life you need a quality set of shelving.

At Pinnacle Hardware, we’ve got a versatile range of multipurpose shelving units for both the home and the garage. Whatever the weight range you’re looking for, there’s a shelf built for the job. We’ve got every nook and cranny covered so there’s a place for everything, and everything in its place.

Here’s a guide to setting up your garage shelving ideas so your garage is fully functional and organised, with a professional finish.


The first step to reorganising any space is to sort out the clutter and get rid of anything you don’t need, either recycling what you can or giving it to charity. Once you have everything out of the way, you’ll realise how much space you actually have, and there are many possibilities for installing new garage shelving ideas.

The easiest solution is to set most of your shelving against the wall so you have ample floor space for the car as well as any other working or activity space you and your family may want. The Pinnacle standard adjustable shelving units are the perfect entry level shelving system suited for any garage, and come in 5 tier and 6 tier options for even more wall space. For larger and heavier items, consider our heavy duty shelving range instead.

For maximum use of your space, we have some great options for those awkward areas. Floating shelves are a great way to make use of wall space that is not typically considered, such as just below the ceiling. Corner shelves are a handy addition to the most overlooked part of most interiors. If your garage has a mini staircase either in the corner or outdoors, you can make use of the space under the stairs with compact options like our heavy duty double drawers.



Now that you have your shelves in place, you can decide what goes where. It’s a good idea to divide your garage storage into designated areas so the shelves you install there can hold exactly what you need.

If you’re setting up a workbench area, why not combine the functionality of a workstation and wall shelving with a heavy duty storage station? You can utilise the pegboard component to hang up tools and power drills, and sturdy steel shelves so everything you need is in one place and within reach.

We’ve previously covered how you can turn your garage into a multipurpose family space. The Pinnacle shelving range has plenty of family-friendly options you can choose from. For a kids’ play area where you need to store toys and other small items, try the 3 Tier Urban Series industrial bench range. Or, if you’re creating a home gym, you’ll need some heavy duty drawers to store all your workout equipment.

When setting up your garage shelving ideas, think of all the ways in which your extra storage will be used best. This way, you can create a space that is functional, stylish, and comfortable to live and work in.


Our shelving range was designed to get the optimum use from your garage storage and simplify your life. From interior shelving for the home to heavy duty for outdoor, there’s no shortage of options to choose from. All our products are easy to assemble, long-lasting, and their sleek matte black finish perfectly complements any home – all at a great price.
