Smart Garage Storage Ideas & Solutions

Your garage is likely one of the hardest-working spots in your house. It's where you store not just your car, but also tools, gardening gear, cleaning supplies, sports equipment and more. This space can easily become a cluttered mess. But our genius garage storage ideas and hacks will help you keep it all organized.

The key to a tidy garage is to maximize space with the right mix of shelving, cabinets, wall organizers and even ceiling storage systems. Assess your belongings to determine your storage needs, then flex your DIY muscles by building our rolling garage shelves, oversized cabinets or customized pegboard. Bins, baskets, hooks and racks are great for corralling smaller items. And if you’re organizing on a budget, you can also upcycle items you already have into clever storage solutions. Need inspiration? See the best garage organization tips and tricks in action.
