Early Warning Indications of a Storage System Gap in Your Garage

Nov 22, 2022

Your own garage looks nothing like the garage you used to enjoy having; instead, it is a complete mess that you do not want even to take a peek at. Since much of your stuff doesn't fit in any other living quarters area, the garage has long served as the home's depository for anything one can think of, such as used kitchenware, sentimental objects, mechanical supplies, and virtually anything. The fact that the garage floor space is beginning to decrease and that you cannot park even the automobile there is therefore not unusual, to say the least.

When there is no room for your automobile, it is the first indication that it is time to tidy and purge. Although it may seem trivial, this is really reasonably prevalent.

Twenty-five percent (25%) of homeowners with two-car garages don't park in them at all, according to a US Department of Energy research. If the garage can still hold at least a car inside, the remaining area for the other car in the two-car garage may be cluttered–the reason there will never be enough for another vehicle to fit in the garage. By logical means, it goes without saying that there should be an adequate place to park your car and store your belongings, given the space you have.

Parking automobiles must be the topmost function of the garage. On the other hand, if your garage can only hold one auto, it would make sense that there is only room for one. After all, the purpose of garages was to shield your vehicles from the elements, including snowfall, ultraviolet radiation, theft, vandalism, branches that may fall, and more. 

You get a throbbing headache from just walking inside the garage.

Cluttered, unorganized areas exacerbate anxiety and tension. Since clutter makes it difficult for us to concentrate and keeps us distracted, the sheer sight of it tells our brain that we won't ever accomplish the work at hand. According to Psychology Today, clutter also causes our brains to work too hard on irrelevant or unnecessary things. We are therefore exhausted. And at the peak of our energy before we have even begun working on our assignments.

The majority of the time, you wind up losing your belongings in the mess.

You are confident you have the tool you need right now for your project because you previously purchased it. On the contrary, you haven't truly worked on your project in as much time as you have spent seeking that particular tool. That clearly indicates that you need to organize your area. Spending so much time searching for items that you ultimately decide to buy a new one really leaves you feeling less efficient. This scenario costs you to spend hard-earned money. And the new tool would just add to the already large number of heaps of tools you already own that are idly lying around in the garage.

Simply put, there is too much junk on the floor, which puts people in danger.

The functionality of the garage is limited by floor clutter, and your safety is also greatly endangered. Due to the uncertainty surrounding their contents, the piles of bins pose a risk. Various objects may cause trip hazards, including electrical wires, garden hoses, yard equipment, and more. Other objects, such as bicycles and ladders, can also be seen leaning against the walls.

If you keep flammable items like gas cans, paint, gas-powered machinery, or other items that can catch fire in one of the bins in your garage, it puts your house at risk. And more importantly, it also endangers the lives of everyone living in the home and those of nearby residences.

Your Garage Storage Problem Solved

There is a solution if we are so positive that the garage can be transformed into a room that works for everyone. And that is to make full use of the ceiling space by using efficient storage options like overhead garage storage.

These days, overhead garage storage racks are the most often used organizational tools. It could be challenging and chaotic to share your automobile space with your stuff. They will take up far too much of the floor space that should be reserved only for your cars. You can put anything you don't use often on the overhead storage rack, so don't be concerned. As a result, there is more space for parking your cars.

There are several types of overhead garage storage racks available from Fleximounts. The  Fleximounts GR48-H Hooks 4′ X 8′ Overhead Garage Storage Rack is one of the top sellers. This sturdy overhead storage system offers a secure location to arrange your belongings. The overhead storage rack keeps pests and vermin out of your garage while maintaining a tidy appearance. Keeping your belongings off the garage floor and safeguarding your priceless possessions also aids in preventing water damage.

The rack's strong gauge cold-rolled steel design, which supports a safety payload of up to 600 lbs, is to thank for this. It is specifically created to make assembling simpler. The unit is strengthened and stabilized by its welded-together integrated wire grid design and frame. The wire grid was also put through rigorous tests with triple load-breaking strength.

The height can be adjusted from 22" to 40", providing a convenient and safe place to store your stuff. The height-adjustable ceiling drop-down lets you customize it to your preferred height. 

The ceiling brackets are designed to be attached to two joists for more flexibility and security. The rack is suitable for securing either ceiling studs or solid concrete ceilings. The screws provided are thicker than comparable products available in the market and have gone through strict tests to prove the top-quality make of the hardware.

All necessary hardware and instructions are included in the package. An installation template is also provided to help you devise a plan to store your stuff in the most efficient manner possible. Also included are three bags of screws, namely, wood screws, installation screws and bolts, and cement installation.

In the box, accessories such as four pieces of Flat Hooks (GRH1) and two pieces of Utility Hooks (GHR3) also come with the racks. The hooks are perfect accessories for hanging lawn tools, mechanical tools, sports equipment, or bicycle units.
