5 Genius Garage Storage Ideas

Intentional or not, your garage often becomes the dumping ground for, well, everything. The problem: There are so many home and garden essentials — tools, lawn equipment, outdoor toys, and so on — that need to find a home, and really, your garage is the most practical place. To make your space as functional and clutter-free as possible, incorporate these garage storage ideas to reclaim prime real estate (or a little extra square-footage, at the very least).

Even if it's not realistic to completely overhaul your space, these DIY ideas take the inch-by-inch approach and focus on common problem areas in most garages like workspaces and garden stations. So, give these space-saving organization tips a try, ranging from pegboard organizers to vertical bike racks, to make room for what really matters: your cars.

1) Lawn Equipment on Display

Rather than leaning your lawn tools against the wall, place shovels, rakes, pruning shears, and other garden go-to’s on a pegboard panel. That way you'll have a permanent reminder to finally do the yard work you've been putting off.

2) Gardening Station

Transform an empty corner into a catchall for all of your gardening essentials. Add a small workbench to give you a space to pot indoor and outdoor plants, so you don't make a mess indoors.

3) Color-Coordinated Workspace

Let your home's farmhouse interior flow into the garage by designing a workspace that combines function and style. Along with wire bins, metal racks, and shelving units, attach magnetic strips to the wall to hang screwdrivers, pliers, and paintbrushes.

4) Vertical Bin Storage

For an organization system that's just as eye-catching as it is functional, nail wire shelves to a blank wall and fill with labeled bins. Just make sure you put the most-used items in the lower rows for easy reach.
