If you’re like most Calgary homeowners, you use your garage for more than just parking the car at nights – or would like to if it wasn’t such a mess!
Garages can become dumping grounds for anything that doesn’t belong in the house – and some items that do.
Getting your garage in a fit state to use as you would like isn’t as difficult as it used to be. With so many garage cabinets available to choose from, you can start to bring some order to your garage chaos.
Our range of cabinets can be your inspiration to start clearing the garage floor and get serious about storage and freeing up space.
But a word of warning – if you’re expecting traditional-looking, purely practical cabinets that add nothing to the overall beauty of your garage, then this may not be the place for you.
Our garage cabinets are complete organizational systems that breathe style and sophistication.
Following is a closer look at the garage cabinet options available from the team at The Garage Store.
Many of the following designs can be customized to your precise needs – just ask us when we do the onsite inspection.
Garage cabinets help you reclaim all that precious garage floor space that has been lost to chaos over the years.
Whether the kids have dumped stuff in the garage over or you are to blame for the mess, the answer is to start stowing away all those things that currently litter the floor.
What do you need to consider before investing in garage cabinets for your space?
How much stuff do you have that needs a home – and how much extra space do you want to allow for all the things you will accumulate over the coming years?
Just as importantly, how much floor space is available in your garage once the car is parked? Our cabinet design and installation experts can help you make the most of your space.
Do you just need general storage space or specific places for tools and other much-used items that you use around the home?
How about a lavish stainless steel work surface?
Perhaps you have custom requirements that must be built into your garage cabinetry? If you need space for the gardening tools, camping gear or special sports equipment, that’s fine too…
Are you looking for stand-alone cabinets, entire units that reach to the ceiling or something a little more understated?
How about colours? It’s not just drab battleship grey to choose from anymore – garage cabinets come in a large range of colours and finishes with most designs.
The details matter too. You even have multiple options for the appearance of the door handles (or even stylish, push-to-open, handle-less doors) as well as the trim.
Do you have a preference for steel over wood or would you prefer an MDF board used with a melamine and powder coat finish?
If money is no object, the 20-gauge steel option looks stunning but if it’s pure functionality at a reasonable price you’re after, MDF will do a great job.
Any garage feature needs to consider the climate in Calgary – and your cabinets are no exception. Ours are all built for durability and will last the test of time.
Extra resilience and robustness can be added with double-sided doors and the stainless-steel hinges are the finest in the business.
One of our main cabinet suppliers is Hayley. Their units are specially designed for harsh environments. They are 100% Canadian designed and made in Calgary using local steel.
Another supplier, Redline Garagegear makes cabinets specially designed for the wear and tear of garages.
When you think of garage cabinets, your mind probably thinks of fairly drab practical units that do a job but don’t look very pretty.
Well, times have changed. Some of the cabinet designs available now are real eye-catchers and look as good as the cabinetry in your kitchen!
They serve not only a practical function but brighten up space and add a touch of style or class to it. They can even match with your new garage flooring if you’re in the middle of a more extensive makeover for your garage.
All of our garage cabinets are made to last. They are well suited to the harsh Calgary climate and will not rust or degrade with the cold and dampness.
They are built with functionality and style in mind. From simple to extravagant, there’s something for everyone.
Many designs are modular, which means you can create what you need now and expand in the future if your storage needs increase. You can include combinations of the following in a wide variety of sizes and colours:
The following materials are the main ones used in our cabinets:
After your free consultation over the phone, we can schedule you for a complimentary site visit.
We will find out what you want, answer any questions you have, measure up, and (if you are after a full makeover of your garage) provide a digital model of your garage with a quote for the various options available.
Once approved, and signed off, our professional installation team books you in at a mutually convenient time and we get to work on the garage floor.
That may take a full day but the cabinets usually only take a couple of hours to install and can be done the next day. Your space will be ready to use right away.
