The Top 5 Ways to Organize Your Garage With Garage Cabinets

If your garage is cluttered and chaotic, you might dream of a well-organized garage that has plenty of room for all of your stored belongings as well as room to park your car. You are not alone; Klutter Killerz works with Tennessee homeowners who are struggling with garage disorganization. One of our most popular products is garage cabinets. Our high-quality cabinets for the garage provide a lot of storage room, sturdy shelving, and an attractive appearance. But if you aren’t sure how to keep your garage organized with these storage powerhouses, you’re in luck: Read on for the top 5 ideas for organizing your garage with the help of garage cabinets.

#1 Keep Sports Equipment Corralled

Do you or the members of your household play hockey, football, soccer, or some other sport? Particularly during the warmer months, the equipment for these sports can get a bit too pungent to store in your indoor closets. Also, they take up valuable room all year long. Why not store them in the garage? Tall garage cabinets can be fitted with hanging rods to allow you to hang uniforms, while accessories like gloves and padding can fit neatly on shelves.

If you tend to have sporting equipment like nets, racquets, sticks, and balls, your garage cabinets can fit those, too. Try a deep cabinet with netting to hold onto balls without allowing them to roll or bounce all over the garage. Hockey sticks and tennis racquets can hang from hooks placed inside the cabinets, and nets can be neatly folded on a shelf. One or two large garage cabinets can fit all of the sporting equipment in your home from season to season, keeping the indoor closets clean and uncluttered.

#2 Make Sure Your Tools Are Stored Safely

Your tools are a financial investment and they can also be hazardous to your children’s safety. If you have young kids or pets who go in the garage, it is vital that you store your tools safely. This is where a workbench with cabinets comes in very handy. You’ll have a flat, smooth area on top for working and plenty of cabinets, including locking cabinets, to keep your tools safe. The sturdy shelves in garage cabinets from Klutter Killerz can bear up to 100 lbs each, which makes them the right strength to hold most of your tools.

#3 Customize Your Garage Cabinets for Gardening Supplies

If you or your partner or spouse has a green thumb, you will want to ensure that he or she has a place to store gardening supplies, particularly during the off season. Large and small shovels and trowels will stay up out of the way if you hang them on hooks inside or outside of the cabinet. Extra seeds, bags of soil, and watering cans can be placed on garage cabinet shelves. Put small items (such as those seed packets) in bins on one shelf and larger items on the shelving below. When all of the items are contained in one place, it makes planning for and putting in your garden easy when springtime rolls around!

#4 Create Storage Space for Each Person in Your Household

Particularly if you use your garage as an entry point to your home, it is likely that some members of the family drop their belongings either in the garage itself or as soon as they walk in the door. If you don’t have space for a dedicated mudroom, consider allocating some space in the garage cabinets to each family member. They can place backpacks, jackets, boots, and other items directly into their own cabinet, leaving the rest of the garage and the inside of the home less cluttered.

If this is not an issue in your home, individual cabinets assigned to family members are a great way to keep special outdoor toys from getting mixed up. For example, if you have children who argue over scooters or badminton racquets, letting them keep their own in their personal spaces keeps the items out of your home and also prevents arguments. It can also teach them responsibility as they learn to put their items away; you can tell at a glance who has left an item out because it will be missing from their cabinet.

#5 Make Use of Cluttered Corners

Corner cabinets can add storage space to awkward corners of the garage that tend to accumulate clutter. At Klutter Killerz, we have a wide variety of sizes and shapes, so we will be able to find a garage cabinet that works in the space you have for it. We can install your cabinets up high or down near the floor (all are wall-mounted for stability and ease of cleaning underneath), so we can really help you maximize that space.
