My Christmas wish is to finally have a clean garage.
I know it’s such a simple wish but I have just been holding the date of cleaning the garage for the longest time. Up until now, three years and counting, it’s a major mess. So my Christmas wish is to finally have the spirit and the drive to clean the garage.
So what will finally motivate me? I need to stop overthinking and just do it. Tackle the job at hand and first roll out the garage door and clean one area at a time. There’s no other choice but to just do it. Since I’ve been dragging it way too long, it’s the only answer.
Plus I was going through Facebook when I saw one of my friends rave about smart storage solutions in the garage. Wall shelves are for items that should be accessible because they are used on a regular basis while overhead racks are for items that are seasonal and are tucked away for most parts of the year.
Here’s a list of everything I’m checking out to install once I have finally decluttered my garage.
WS SERIES ADJUSTABLE 3-TIER WALL SHELVING
They say that if your garage isn’t wide or you want multiple shelves, you can have wall storage options that feature up to three levels of shelves. In this way, it will take up vertical space. The company boasts a patent design in a 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 on three shelves, it can also be easily installed by one person. It is also compatible for use in wood studs or concrete walls.
WRC24B CORNER 2-PACK 2′ X 4′ WALL SHELVING
Next on the list is a product that is perfect for small garages. Mine is small and I want to make use of my corners as well. This wall shelving will do just that to optimize all vacant spaces in the garage. It can be used as a corner shelf or a 2-pack shelf. Like the other wall shelves and overhead storage racks from FlexiMounts, this item also features an integrated grid design. It’s easy to install by one person because the package comes with all the necessary hardware. An installation template will also help locate where to mount the holes. You may install it in wood studs or a concrete wall. For additional storage, this is compatible with FlexiMounts GRH2/GRH2B and hooks GRH1/GRH1B.
GR48M PRO 4′ X 8′ OVERHEAD GARAGE STORAGE RACK
I would most probably need a product that can carry a heavy weight too. This overhead storage rack has a weight capacity of 800 pounds. It is 4’x8’ in size and its height can be adjusted from 22 to 40 inches, meaning it provides up to 150 cu. ft of storage. Made of cold-roll steel like the other products, it is also waterproof and has that signature FlexiMounts integrated grid design. It can also be easily installed, coming with the trusty step-by-step instruction and an installation template. Everything will arrive in one box on your doorstep. I won’t be afraid if it will fall from the ceiling because it comes with high-quality screws and all the hardware of this product has gone through strict quality tests. Note that this is compatible with joist spacing of less than or equal to 24”.
GR48F BASIC 4′ X 8′ OVERHEAD GARAGE STORAGE RACK
The GR48F has a weight capacity of 600 pounds and it is 4’ x 8’ in size. The height can be adjusted from 22 to 40 inches. It is made of cold-roll steel and is guaranteed to be strong and sturdy where you could load 3/8” plywood or even thicker. I read that I can customize the color of the wooden desks or even use old wooden boards.
This product has multiple dedicated embedded mounting points that will ensure the security of my belongings. Like other items in this list, it makes use of ceiling space which is a perfect storage solution for seasonal and unused items that are kept in your garage.
I am a biker so I need a storage unit for my bike too. This wall-mounted bike rack is ideal for any home and has a height-adjustable feature with a weight capacity of up to 300 pounds. It is constructed of cold-rolled steel and can hold up to six motorcycles. These J-hooks will hold the motorcycles in the correct vertical position. Depending on where it will be housed, the hook spacing can be changed.
These are very simple to install and only require four steps. Drill holes in a horizontal line so that you may use tapping screws to fix wall plates. Hooks should be inserted into the right end of the bike rod after passing it through the plate in the left wall. The left end of the rod needs to be fixed last, making sure two screws are plugged into the right end.
I want to maximize my garage as much as possible so I will be installing hooks as well.
GRH1 4 PCS Flat Hooks For Overhead Racks and Wall Shelving
These hooks are specially designed by FlexiMounts to be attached to its ceiling racks and wall shelves. Made of cold-roll steel, it has a weight capacity of 50 pounds. It comes in four flat pieces and is all scratch-resistant with a powder coat finish. It can be used in multiple ways such as hanging bikes, tools, sporting goods, and more.
GRH2 4 PCS Rail Hooks For Overhead Racks and Wall Shelving
This comes in four pieces and can be used for overhead racks and wall shelving. Its weight capacity is also 50 pounds and its material is made from cold-roll steel as well. The difference with the GHR1 is the shape, this one is a rail type of hook.
GRH3 2 PCS UTILITY HOOKS For Overhead Racks
You can also opt for the GRH3 which are two pieces of utility hooks that can only be used for overhead garage storage racks. It is made of cold-roll steel with a weight capacity of 35 pounds. It is also scratch-resistant with a powder coat finish and can be used for various functions.
