Garage organization systems are increasingly becoming a necessity in homes. The garage is the catch-all for storage, sports equipment, gardening supplies, tools, overflow food storage and cars (if there is even room at this point!) Control the clutter with a garage system that will work with changing storage needs. freedomRail Garage paired with a great design will keep the space functional and organized. The storage experts at Organized Living are here to help with the best tips to design and organize the ultimate garage system.

The golden ratio for designing garage storage systems is 50 percent garage shelves, 30 percent cabinetry and 20 percent accessories. With freedomRail Garage, you can adjust the components at any time to accommodate changing storage needs.

Divide the walls into major and minor storage walls. Major walls can accommodate storage from ceiling to floor and can span across the wall even when the car is parked. The major wall of the garage is typically the wall in front of the vehicles. Since most of the wall is available for storage, items that are regularly used should be stored on the major wall. Minor walls are where storage space is limited, typically because more room is needed for open car doors and walkway space.

Design with zones for your garage organization plans. Creating special zones by grouping frequently and commons used together items are together for quick access. (1)

For best garage shelving storage, position large or heavy items on lower shelves for easy lifting, regularly used items at eye level and light-weight or least used items up high.

Don’t forget about the door! Organized Living’s Over the Door system allows for you to maximize every square inch of space in any room. (2)
