11 Shelving Ideas That'll Put Your Garage in Order
Functional and practical, these storage solutions will transform your garage from messy to organized.
My garage becomes the dumping ground for everything that doesn't fit in my house — especially when I'm doing that quick someone-is-coming-over-right-now speed cleaning. Plus, it holds all the things that actually belong in the garage, such as lawn equipment, tools, bikes and a deep freezer.
We recently tackled the chaos — cleaning out everything we no longer need, trashing broken or expired items and sorting what was left into labeled bins and cabinets. Now, we're working on the final step: getting the right shelving to get our containers off the ground and make them easy to access. Keep scrolling to see the shelving ideas we're eyeing for instant garage organization.

Say goodbye to the days of a messy pile of shoes blocking the garage entrance into the house. Grab this handy boot and shoe rack for instant organization at the door.
