The Garage is For All Genders

Jan 12, 2023

Homeowners and visitors tend to think of the man in the house when we make any mention of the garage.

It's a man's cave where pursuits that are associated with normal male hobbies are seen as masculine. The family's vehicles are kept in the garage. Even if there are a growing number of female drivers today, men still control a large majority of the driving industry. When it comes to driving and anything related to motor vehicles, such as tire replacement or car repairs, girls are frequently made fun of. Woodwork requires sawing and pounding, which are typically associated with male jobs, and is frequently completed in the garage. Men tend to use athletic clothing for various sports like biking and skiing. Men are frequently given the task of grilling during barbecues using a griller that is kept in the garage. Men are frequently given the task of doing yard work, and the necessary tools are usually kept in the garage. Even lifting weights with home weights that you keep in your garage is frequently seen as being macho.

Once again, the garage is typically thought of as a man's den. But now that I think about it, driving well is not related at all to gender. Additionally, women can learn how to replace a tire and fix any damages to a car. Women who are skilled in woodworking can create whatever they can imagine, including cabinets, shelves, and tables. Women may also be subject to grilling charges. They can also handle issues with the house's electrical system and landscape. Women are capable of lifting weights. These activities are all completely unrelated to gender. Both men and women can perform each of these tasks, and a garage can be used for any number of things.

There is nothing wrong if the women of a household occupy it more.

The value of a room is cut in half when we restrict activities based on gender. We hope that more women will feel empowered to use the garage and do as many activities as they want to. 

Installing clever storage options is necessary to make the most of the space in a garage. You should keep your items in the empty walls and the enormous ceiling space. Getting them off the ground will enable more movement and carry out any tasks you desire in the garage, including exercising, completing DIY projects, performing auto repairs, hosting private events, and inviting people over. Here are some wall shelf and ceiling storage rack alternatives that you can easily install yourself to make the most of your garage space.


This BR24 basic 2-pack wall shelving is a 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. You may elect to install flat hooks from FlexiMounts so that you might hang your bikes. It is available in black and white.

Classic 2-Pack 2’ X 6’ Wall shelving WR26

The hardware for this wall-mounted storage option is included, making it simple for one person to install. To install it on, simply look for a concrete wall or wall studs. It is 2x6 in dimension and has a total carrying capacity of 400 pounds. The steel is powder-coated, and after passing rigorous quality checks, it is assured to be top-notch. It also has a buckle design with velcros, which is a feature that keeps it from falling, which we adore. Due to its adaptable design, which includes multiple stud spacing options and combination possibilities, homeowners can configure it as they see fit during installation. This is available in white or black. 


This 4" by 8" variation, which is likewise mounted to the ceiling, has a height adjustment range of 22 to 40 inches. Because it is made of cold-rolled steel, it is sturdy and long-lasting. Its robust construction enables it to support up to 600 pounds of weight without experiencing any issues. It is waterproof and great for storing seasonal things, just like the GF48F. It also comes with two extra items: four flat hooks and two utility hooks (GRH1) (GRH3). Thanks to the integrated grid design, it could now be installed even more easily by one person. It also keeps the frames and integrated wire grid joined, resulting in a solid and reliable storage solution.


The GR48F is 4' x 8' in size and has a 600-pound weight capacity. The height is movable between 22 and 40 inches. It is assured to be strong and solid because it is composed of cold-rolled steel, allowing you to load 3/8" or even thicker plywood. You can use old wooden planks or even change the color of your wooden desks.

The numerous dedicated inbuilt mounting points on this product will guarantee the safety of your goods. For seasonal and unneeded things kept in your garage, it utilizes ceiling space and is the ideal storage solution.

Final Word

Anyone can utilize the garage, regardless of gender. As long as everyone's safety is guaranteed, including your own, don't be hesitant to take use of the empty space in any way you can or want to. Encourage women to pursue their passions by pursuing yours. What you can and cannot do shouldn't be determined by society, especially if gender is the primary factor. It shouldn’t limit us, anyone, to doing what we want just because of the stereotypes attached to our assigned birth.
