In our last blog we talked about how to winterize a garage. Even though we haven’t hit first frost here in Greater Vancouver, it’s not too early to start thinking about getting your garage ready for winter. (In fact, if you wait for first frost it might be too late, depending on what you have stored in your garage.)
Now that you’re thinking about winterizing, you might want to consider adding some of these accessories to your garage. They will help make the task of winterizing easier while keeping your garage organized and tidy all winter long:
Get rid of all the piles and stacks of stuff in your garage. Cabinets can help you make sense of the clutter and keep things organized. Plus, cabinetry provides a barrier and a bit of insulation against the drafts that plague many garages and will protect things that are prone to freezing in winter time, like cleaning and automotive fluids.
Tailored Living offers a variety of finishes when it comes to cabinetry, as well as durable, easy-care stainless steel cabinets.
Gridwall is quick and easy to install and can be configured to fit even small, awkward spaces in garage walls, or entire walls if you choose.
3) Hooks, racks & baskets:
Once you’ve installed a gridwall system, you can add hooks, racks and baskets (as many as you need). Hooks are ideal for mounting tools, sporting equipment and anything else you want to hang. Racks and baskets are the perfect place to store bottles of cleaner or automotive fluids or smaller items like hand tools. These handy accessories get stuff off of your floors and take full advantage of unused wall space.
4) Overhead storage:
Ceiling space can and should be put to work for you. Overhead storage racks are mounted to your garage ceiling and can be used to hold all kinds of items. They’re particularly useful for storing things that you don’t need to use often, like holiday decorations, camping equipment and spare auto parts.
Shelves are a perfect addition or alternative to cabinetry in a garage. They allow you to get items off of the floor, and you’re able to see at a quick glance what’s there. Shelving can be installed virtually anywhere in your garage that there’s spare wall space and clearance.
