Maximize Your Storage Space With a Garage Door System

Many homeowners use their garage to store things, but they don’t have a system in place to keep things organized. It is easy to wind up with a cluttered garage that is hard to move around in. Here at Neighborhood Garage Door Repair of Charlotte, NC., we put together a few ideas of how you can maximize your storage space.

Hang Racks From The Ceiling

There is a lot of space on the ceiling of your garage that can be utilized. You can hang racks or shelving of some kind around your garage. These racks can be used to hold plastic bins full of off-season clothes or decorations.

We always recommend that you store your items in plastic. Cardboard is the perfect bedding for bugs and rodents. Also, cardboard will not keep your clothes from the elements the way plastic will.

Stand-Alone Cabinets

Stand-alone cabinets can be moved around and are not a permanent fixture in your garage. This is a good investment because it gives you versatility if you need to move the cabinets at a later time. Each shelf can hold cans, baskets, or small bins for the items you need to store.

Use a Two-Level Cart

A two-level cart can be used as shelves or a table top. You can store items on the bottom rack and use the top as a place to work. Or, you can use both levels as storage. Another great thing about this option is it can be used to move things around if you need. You can simply clear off the cart and use it for its normal purposes.

Install Hooks or Racks

Many people add hooks to the wall or install coat racks in their garage as an alternative to a coat rack. Before you go in your house, you can drop off your coats, bags, and other items. This is particularly important if you have wet or muddy clothes.

Set Out a Shoe Bench

If you don’t have a mudroom, your garage can be used for that purpose. Simply set out a shoe bench near the door for your family to place their shoes. This will keep all of their shoes in a central location and should keep them from searching when it is time to go.

Some shoe benches are designed with a coat rack above the seat. If you get a bench with that feature, then you would not have to hang hooks on the wall. Also, you can move it easily if you need to.

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
