Look up. The most underutilized space in your garage is surely the ceiling. When you install overhead garage storage, you’ll free up a ton of space on the floor to fit your car in. Store all those old toys, car oil, extra basketballs, tools, and gloves that you use infrequently in this out-of-the-way space.

Garage Cabinets Will Be Your Life-Saver

When you invest in garage storage cabinets, you’ll be using the sides of your garage (space that is often not maximized) to store your many items. From potting soil and extra pots to gardening tools, hats, and containers, your garage is probably overflowing with items you want, but use only occasionally. With garage storage cabinets from Garage Interiors, your garage cabinets are portable so you can rearrange the garage as you like. If you want a garage storage system with a workbench, check out our 14 Foot Garage Workbench, which gives you the advantage of having garage storage plus a place to work that is out of the way.

Organize And Downsize

There’s something freeing about donating items or throwing away items you didn’t know you still had. It’s a weight lifted off your shoulders that you didn’t even know you had. If it’s been a while since you’ve gone through your garage clutter, now is the time. Spend a Saturday or a Sunday afternoon clearing your garage. Then order your amazing garage storage system from Garage Solutions in Wisconsin and Northern Illinois, and experience the freedom.

Use The Entire Wall

Another trick Garage Interiors recommends is to purchase garage storage cabinets that go from floor to ceiling. These super-tall garage cabinets will offer up a whole new level (pardon the pun) of garage storage. The key to garage storage is clearing up the garage floor. Once you do that, you can install our polyaspartic flooring first and then roll your car right in. It seems the longer we live, the more pets we collect, and the more kids we have, the more stuff we collect. The more stuff you collect leads to no place to put it except the garage. Slowly but surely, your garage becomes a storage place, pushing your poor car out into the elements to fend for itself against the cold, the rain, the snow, the sleet, and the wind. You really want your car back inside a protected shelter — and soon. When you partner with Garage Interiors, we’ll give your garage floor a coat of polyaspartic flooring, which is easy to install, patch, and repair, as well as easy to clean and is stain-resistant. The polyaspartic layers work to protect your garage floor since it’s four times stronger and more durable than epoxy flooring. With polyaspartic flooring, your garage floor will be less likely to scratch, dent, or suffer other types of damage. Once your garage flooring is taken care of, we can install your custom garage shelving system, which will get all of your clutter off the floors and allow your car the space it needs. Our garage storage cabinets are the perfect size to put in the corners of your garage out of the way, giving you a solid space to pull your car into. Through our superb garage organization systems, Garage Interiors will make your garage a parking space once again. Contact us today!
