Every area has to be used effectively when maximizing your workspace in a garage, especially if it’s small. Since space is extremely valuable in a small garage, getting rid of anything you absolutely don’t need will pay off big in the extra workspace you’ll gain.
It’s very possible that there are items lurking in the corners of your garage you don’t even know are there, so take time to go through it.
If you have tons of stuff stored that you aren’t using it can be an invitation to for pests to build their nests such as spiders.Black widow and brown recluse spiders really love dark, cool garage spaces!
Handyman Alpharetta – Ideas for Making the Most of Your Space
Wall space in your garage is perfect for hanging large and small items, shelving units and pegboards. A great idea is to attach a pegboard to the wall to hang your most used tools so you don’t have to search for them everyday.
Build shelves on the wall for clear storage containers, making for easy access to items you don’t use all the time. Categorize your items based on what to keep, what to donate and what to throw away.
For a well-functioning work space in your garage put wheels on as many stationery items as you can like floor cabinets, tool chests and workbenches. Furniture dollies work great for rolling around things that may be too heavy to lift.
Items on wheels can be moved away from the walls to create temporary work areas or even rolled outside for an afternoon and then easily rolled back into place when you’re done.
