Shelving

From basic shelving to full garage organization systems, you can add the perfect storage solution with the right shelving. Shelves offer a way to store your items off the ground and keep them well organized in your custom garage. No matter what you plan to store, shelves will likely give you a great way to keep things organized.

Storage Cabinets

Cabinets offer the ability to store things in your garage, keep them organized and keep things out of sight. Items you don't want others to see or you simply don't want to look at regularly can be stored in cabinets instead of on shelves.

Storage cabinets come in basic units you can pick up at a hardware store to custom solutions you can have designed specifically for your garage and your needs. With the right storage cabinets, you can also include a place to hang tools, an area to work and more.

Pegboards

A great way to store your tools and keep them readily available, pegboards allows you to turn walls or portions of walls into easy storage. You simply install the pegboard and use pegboard accessories to hang tools, cleaning supplies or anything else. The best thing is a pegboard system doesn't take up as much space as shelving or cabinets and can allow you to customize the way you store items on the wall.

Pegboard systems work great for small tools and for those looking to use their garage as a workshop. This type of system allows you to basically layout your tools on the wall making them easily accessible, as needed.

Storage Bins

Putting items on shelves without any type of protection may not be ideal. However, when you invest in good storage bins, you can easily label the bins and know exactly which items are where on your shelves. Plus, you'll be adding another layer of protection in the event of flooding or another natural disaster.

Small Stack Storage Bins

If you plan on storing lots of small pieces, such as nails, screws, nuts, bolts, and washers, small stack storage bins come in handy. These little storage bins allow you to easily store small parts and they stack on top of each other making it easy to fit them into the right spot in your garage.
