Do you have a lot of stuff in your garage that needs to be organized, but don’t know where to start? A great way to get started is by installing some overhead storage racks. This will give you a lot more space to work with and will help you keep everything neatly organized. In this blog post, we will discuss the different types of overhead racks available and how to free up precious floor space. We will also provide some tips on how to best utilize your new garage storage solution!
When it comes to overhead storage, there are a few different options available. One option is to install wall-mounted shelves near the ceiling. This is a great way to store seasonal items or things that you don’t use very often. The downside of this option is the depth limitations due to the inability to reinforce the shelves vertically. Another popular option is to install racks that hang down from the ceiling. These are great for storing holiday decorations, golf clubs, and other larger items. Although there are multiple dimensions of storage racks available, the most popular size is 4’X8′ with weight capacities ranging from 450lbs-600lbs. That will free up at least 32 sqft of precious floor space and can be doubled using stackable totes. As an added bonus, most overhead storage racks have the option to mount hooks to hang additional items such as bikes or ladders. Whichever type of overhead storage you choose, be sure to measure the space before you buy anything so that you know it will fit! An often overlooked area is the space between your open garage door and the ceiling. Most ceiling mount overhead storage racks can be mounted in this area if there is at least 24″ of space in between the ceiling and the door.
Installing your new garage overhead storage typically can be done within a single day. It is important to either hire a professional or follow the manufacturer’s recommendations if you are installing them yourself. The last thing you want is an improperly installed overhead rack to fall from the ceiling and cause injury or damage to your vehicle.
Once you have your new garage overhead storage solution installed, it’s time to start utilizing it! Here are a few tips:
– Make sure to label everything so you know where it goes. This will save you a lot of time and frustration in the long run.
– Store items that you use most often within easy reach. This way, you won’t have to waste time searching for things when you need them.
– Use clear storage bins for small items so that they don’t get lost.
– Keep heavier items closer to the ground so that they don’t fall and damage anything.
By following these simple tips, you will be able to get the most out of your new garage overhead storage solution!
