Over time, we all collect a lot of stuff – and all of it needs to go somewhere. For homeowners in Airdrie and all over the world, that place is often the garage. But there’s just one problem…what about the vehicle that you want to park there, or the hobbies you want to do in that space?
Whether you’re a member of the Airdrie Time Travellers Car Club and you need a space to shine up your hot rod, your kid is tinkering with tools for an assignment with the Boys & Girls Club of Airdrie, or you just need the space to feel more open…your garage floor is important real estate that shouldn’t disappear.
To keep your garage clutter-free, we offer the perfect solution to fit any Airdrie home layout: garage wall storage! So let’s tame that growing mess (and who knows, you may even find some thrift store gems to bring over to places like Where on Earth Antiques)!
So, why get wall storage? The answer is obvious – who doesn’t love a well-organized, good-looking garage? With wall storage, you can hang household tools, store gardening equipment, hang bikes, stack off-season tires, and stash away bulky items in boxes on shelves. It’s versatile and perfect for decluttering your garage floor.
Imagine being able to easily locate your plumbing or engine tools, having space to park another car, or work on your hobby. Plus, in Airdrie, we all know that our lifestyles change with the seasons. Wall storage allows you to store seasonal items like skis and sleds when they’re not in use, rather than having them clutter up your space when you’re not hitting the hills at Coopers Crossing or Chinook Winds Park.
Another bonus of wall storage? It takes up zero floor space, making it ideal for smaller garages where cabinets would be too bulky. There’s no excuse to let your garage floor be a lost cause – so let’s start organizing yours!
Almost all Airdrie wall storage solutions fall into one of five categories:
Simple and straightforward. A quickly customizable way to hang tools and other lightweight items, keeping them organized and off the floor. This does take some planning to make sure everything has enough room, though.
These are sturdy steel rods and bars mounted to the walls, strong enough to support plenty of heavy items. The type we use can support up to 1,000 lbs.
Tried and true, regular shelving turns upper corners and walls into storage space. It’s versatile, easy to install, capable of holding big items, and blends in well when done properly.
More specialized than shelves, these wall-mounted racks are ideal for storing tires, bikes, oversize sports equipment, and other bulky items.
You can’t go wrong with a good hook. Combined with slots, these are an elegant and simple solution to keep yard tools, skis, and other long items off the floor.
Before you walk into the nearest hardware store and start buying up shelves and hooks, it pays to know what kind of wall storage would work best for you. Consider:
Take stock of how much stuff you need to stow away and how much floor space you want to free up. Plan for future items you may accumulate over the years.
Different types of items – like electronics, tires, water gear, or tools – require different storage solutions. Consider what you need to stow away and make sure the wall storage is fit for your purpose.
Don’t skimp on the quality of the materials used in your wall storage solutions. Choose high-quality, durable products that won’t rust or degrade in Airdrie’s summer and winter weather extremes.
You’ll want to be able to access everything you store away at different times through the year, so consider a flexible storage solution that can shift around to match.
There’s looking good because it’s clean, and there’s looking good because it’s stylish. Choose a design that fits with the aesthetics of the room and the rest of the house.
