Picking out the right type of garage storage solution in the garage is really a no-lose situation because you are doing something to improve the current space that is going to help you get much more organized and make the garage a much cleaner area to walk in and to find things in.
As you are considering the basic building blocks of garage storage such as shelving or cabinets, you want to make sure that you are also thinking of the certain sections of the garage that are going to have a designated space.
One of the areas of focus when you are doing garage storage planning should be for your tools. Even if you are not a good handymen or into DIY projects, it always helps to know where a specific tool is because there are so many different problems that can pop up with home ownership that you will find yourself doing several runs to the garage on a weekly basis just for ad hoc things.
One of the best garage storage solutions for tools is a pegboard. A pegboard is nice because it can go directly on a wall and does not take up a whole lot of space.
What it does do is help to get all of your tools organized nice and neatly so they can be easily found. Not only does it make them easy to find, it will also prolong the life of your tools and keep them from getting dull or dirty when they are stored properly.
Keep in mind that most tools can run you anywhere from $25 to $100 and you will have quite a few of these in your garage that you accumulate over time.
The last thing you want to have to do is to replace a tool because you failed to take the time necessary to store it properly or even worse, think that the tool is lost because it is buried under a pile of junk so you buy a second tool. One week later then you find the original tool that you thought was missing, leaving you now with two tools.
