Garage storage ideas: Stylish space saving storage solutions
by
Checkatrade

Before you fall asleep at the mere mention of garage storage ideas, bear with us. We’re making it our mission to inspire your next renovation.

For the less space-conscious amongst us, garages tend to become the dumping grounds for the belongings we don’t want lying around the house. Items like cars, bikes, boots, tools, cleaning equipment and various odds and sods find themselves thrown into these annexes and left to fester.

What if we told you there was another way?

You don’t need to invest in a bolted door and refuse entry to guests in case they see your shame. By making a few key design choices, your garage will benefit in both style and functionality.

Types of garage

Various types of garage will benefit from an upgrade. Whether you have:

  • Detached vs. attached garage
  • Portico garage
  • Garage workshop
  • Portable garage
  • Carport garage

There are several garage storage ideas you can implement to lift the space and increase its value and aesthetic. Storage boxes, room dividers, shelving units and cabinets are just some of the furniture choices that transform your garage into a contributing member of your household.

What to check before you buy garage storage

Before we get started, it’s worth taking into consideration the following things:

  • For a good idea of volume and capacity, work out what you need and want to store in the garage
  • To save money, consider recycling, upcycling or repurposing old cabinets
  • Plan your budget before measuring your space
  • Work out your square footage and the costs per square metre before buying the appropriate cabinet/storage dimensions
  • Choose a theme for greater aesthetic appeal
