5 Simple Ways to Keep Your tools organized and protected in your Garage

Here are five simple ways Tailored Living can help you design your garage for all your tools, keeping them organized and protected. Of course, if you tend to keep your tools in a van on occasions, it may be a good idea for you to get van contents insurance to protect your property fully. Tools come in all shapes and sizes and encompass many interests; lawn and garden, automotive, and workshop tools to name a few. These can all be easily kept safe and organized by installing a combination of customizable garage organization systems.

First: Set up a plan of how you want your organized layout to look is the first thing that needs to happen before you can start enjoying your new storage system.

Second: By utilizing the flexibility of adjustable racks, baskets, hooks, and wall panels your tools will be accessible and safely stored away as well. All your tools require proper care in order to keep them in top condition. Proper storage, meaning a place to store everything safely and efficiently, is an essential piece of keeping your tools clean and organized.

Third: Wall and base cabinets, as well as locker-style cabinets with adjustable shelves keep hazardous items safe. Additionally, Garage organizers, such as these, allow you to keep your tools, big and small, in a single location that’s easy to access when it’s time to edge the lawn, prune the shrubs or work in the garden, work on your snow mobile, car or motorcycle, or build something from your workbench. As an extra measure of precaution, make sure to keep these cabinets locked at all times when there are children or pets present in the household.

Fourth: In addition to storage for your various tools, Gridwall and Slatwall adjustable hooks and wall grids work great for small hand tools such as garden forks, trowels, pruners, spray bottles, cordless drill/driver and other portable power tools. Rakes, spades and other long-handled lawn and garden tools are best kept off the garage floor and stored neatly on a wall organizer. Keeping your tools handy can cut down the time you spend searching for them when you’re ready to repair a fence, build a deck and more.

Fifth: Aside from the walls spanning your garage, you have an entire space of ceiling that is often overlooked by homeowners. Overhead storage is the perfect garage organization solution for seasonal tools. It stays out of the way for the majority of the year, but when you need it, it is easily accessible!
