Are you going to welcome a newborn in the family? Is there a relative who’s moving to your house because it’s near his or her university? Did you just get pregnant and your boyfriend is moving in until you have saved up money for your own apartment? Did you just decide to adopt a pet or buy one so you’re making room for a pet in the house? Are your parents in the country for half a year or so and would be staying at your house for that long? 

The point we’re making is that you need more space in your house, but the thing is you don’t want to make any renovations to make your house bigger. You can’t afford it, and is it going to be the same practice every time someone new will come move in? It’s not sustainable, impractical, and definitely not recommended. 

What you should focus your efforts on is maximizing the space that you already have. You can win this amount of space that you need if you start decluttering, letting go of things that you don’t need anymore, and organizing the items that you’ll decide to keep. 

What we highly suggest is to free up space in the storage areas of your home so that you can set aside items in these spots and voila! There’s more space in your house for the new person, baby, or pet that you’re welcoming in your house. 

Here are storage solutions for your garage to organize your “Keep” items after you declutter: 

WRC24B CORNER 2-PACK 2′ X 4′ WALL SHELVING

Small garages are the ideal place for this wall shelf. Utilizing the available corner space, this wall shelf will make the most of all the open places in your garage. It can function as a 2-pack shelf or a corner shelf. This product has an integrated grid design just like the FlexiMounts' other wall shelves and overhead storage racks. One person may easily install it because the package includes all the required hardware. Additionally, a blueprint for installation will show you where to mount the holes. It can be installed in a concrete wall or wood studs. This is compatible with hooks GRH1/GRH1B and FlexiMounts GRH2/GRH2B for further storage.

BR24 GENERAL 2-PACK 2′ X 4′ WALL SHELVING

This BR24 basic 2-pack wall shelving is another great option if your garage is small. It measures 2'x4' and has a carrying capacity of 440 pounds, or 220 pounds per tier. It is constructed from high-quality, rigorously tested steel that has been powder coated. It comes in a single package with all the necessary hardware, making it simple for one person to install. You have the option of installing it vertically or parallel. Similar to our other products, this one has an integrated grid design that distinguishes it from competitors, facilitates assembly, and increases its stability in comparison to other storage options that have multiple pieces to assemble or put together. You may opt to add flat hooks from FlexiMounts so that you could hang your bikes. It comes in black and white. 

WS SERIES ADJUSTABLE 3-TIER WALL SHELVING

If your garage isn’t wide or you want multiple shelves, FlexiMounts also has wall storage options that feature up to three levels of shelves. The company boasts a patent design in structure where you don’t need any tools to adjust the product. The weight capacity of this wall shelf is 300 to 450 pounds in total. You may adjust the height of each level according to your actual needs. It comes in two sizes that you can choose from: 1’x3’ and 1’x4.’ It is made of powder-coated steel that is guaranteed to be of high quality. Like the other products, even though this is in three shelves, it can also be easily installed by one person. It is also compatible for use in wood studs or a concrete wall. 

GR48M PRO 4′ X 8′ OVERHEAD GARAGE STORAGE RACK

Do you require a product with a high weight capacity? The weight limit for this overhead storage rack is 800 pounds. Its dimensions are 4'x8', and because its height can be changed from 22 to 40 inches, it can hold up to 150 cu. of storage space. It has the same recognizable FlexiMounts integrated grid design and is made of cold-rolled steel like the other items. It is also waterproof. With the reliable step-by-step instructions and installation template, it can also be installed quickly. One box containing everything will be delivered to your door.

Note that this is compatible with joist spacing of less than or equal to 24”.
