Turn Your Garage into a Functional Workspace

Are you getting the most out of your garage? Sure, it can be easy to just throw items you aren’t using in there. Boxes, unused items, outdoor gear and more can clutter up your space. However, it is also a natural place to store your tools and equipment. So it makes perfect sense that you’d want to turn it into a functional workspace where everything you need for your next project is easily accessible! You’ll need to follow a few steps to get there, though. Here are a few ideas to get you started.

Free Up Space with Outdoor Storage

If you feel like you have too many things in your garage to make an efficient workspace, you might need to free up some space. For large items, grab a storage shed. Storage sheds from Keter come in beautiful designs and neutral colors. They’ll look great in your yard and are manufactured in many different sizes. So, there’s something to fit all of your storage needs. If you’re not needing quite that much space, consider an outdoor deck box. A deck box will go perfectly on your patio, deck or even a balcony to store odds and ends outside the garage.

Figure Out a Floor Plan

There is no fixed floor plan for setting up your workspace. The space must work for your needs and what you will be using it to do. How big of a workbench will you need? How many power outlets? How much storage? You’ll also need to consider other items you have in your garage like your cars, biking equipment, kayaks, etc. These are some essential questions to answer before you start transforming the space. Consider all of these items as you map out your garage, then draw out a rough plan. 

Add Vertical Storage

If you’re working with a garage that falls on the smaller side, then adding vertical storage will free up a lot of ground space. Wall shelves, pegboards, or resin cabinets are great options to mount anywhere in your garage. The Keter XL Pro Storage Cabinet is a versatile storage option for this space. Each included shelf can hold up to 30 kgs, and you can stack, connect or join them on top of one another or side by side. You can hang items from the ceiling to save space as well!

Organize Your Tools

Portability and configuration are important features to consider when choosing products to hold your gear. You will want to make sure that everything is easily accessible and that your tools will be kept in a sturdy location in your garage, because tools can get heavy! So, consider getting a Keter Utility Garage Storage Cabinet. It will ensure your tools stay organized and ready for you to use.

 If you’re needing storage for tools outside of your garage, a good option would be a High Store Plus Storage Shed. It can be kept outside, has shelving, and will keep the elements away from your tools and outdoor equipment. So, you don’t have to worry about anything getting damaged.

 Once you’ve got everything stored away properly, a plan in place, adequate storage and an inventory of your tools, you’re all set to maximize and enjoy your new garage workspace!
