5 Clever Garage Storage Ideas [Infographic]

Make the most of your garage.

Try one of these 5 clever garage storage ideas to spruce up your garage space in Madison, WI.

Can you name the most neglected space in your home? For many, it’s the garage. If you’ve been giving your garage the cold shoulder, now’s the time to reorganize and refresh your space. Here are a few of our favorite garage storage ideas:

  1. Up, Up and Away
    Lacking horizontal room? Go vertical. Mount a tall storage slat wall and hang tools, bikes, and more. These systems are customizable so you can pick the size that fits your stuff.
  2. Ceiling Surprise
    Have an attic or unused space above your garage? Get clever and add a high tray ceiling. This extra raised space can be occupied by camping gear or surfboards—cowabunga!
  3. Make it a Mudroom
    A partial mudroom, that is (we know you need room for cars). Add cubbies, hooks, and built-in bench seating just outside your garage-to-interior door for muddy and snowy boots, and wet umbrellas and coats.
  4. Slide on By
    Rollout shelves and sliding bypass units are great for those who need a lot of storage for sporting goods or tools. It’s like turning your garage into a mancave-meets-library.
  5. Outward Expansion
    Have a small detached garage that dates back to the Cold War? Create more space by adding a bump-out extension. This is the most drastic (and effective) of our garage storage ideas.
