Making the most of the space in a small garage

Have you ever been envious of friends who have a huge garage where they can store all sorts of items, as well as parking their car? You should probably be grateful that at least you have a garage, and your car is not stuck on your driveway, exposed to the elements. But, a bit more space would be nice, right?

The good news is that your garage can seem a lot bigger if you make the best use of the space that you have. The aim of this article is to give you some tips about how this can be done. Hopefully, we can help you find more space in your garage than you ever knew you had.

Making use of your garage walls

Your car is usually parked in the center of your garage. This means that you generally have access to at least some of the walls. You may want to think about putting a cabinet on one of the walls, where you can store tools. If there is not room for a cabinet then you could opt for shelving instead. You could even just use hooks or nails placed into the wall. They make excellent hanging places, as long as you do not place too much weight on them.

Not forgetting the space that is overhead

The walls are not the only space in a garage that tends to be neglected. You can also release extra space by making use of the area above your head. Think about it, if you do not use this space for storage, it just gets wasted. You can invest in overhead storage which opens over the bonnet of your car. You may also want to think about storage solutions that hang from the ceiling. This type of storage solution is especially useful for items that you do not require access to on a regular basis.

What about extending your garage?

The storage solutions we have already mentioned are two of the most affordable ways of gaining extra space in your garage. Of course, you may also want to think about extending the garage. This is going to cost you a lot more money, but it could possibly add to the value of your property which would be useful if you wanted to sell. If you decide to do this it’s likely that you would need to gain permission before commencing the building work.

Having a small garage can be a real problem, if you have a lot of items that need to be stored, such as garden furniture during the winter months. The most affordable way to gain some extra space is to make the best use of what you have. Hopefully, we have shown you some storage solutions that can help you to do this. If you have money that you can invest in the project then extending your garage may be a good solution for you.
