Organizing the Garage

Cleaning and organizing the garage can be overwhelming, especially when you are not sure where to start. One of the most efficient ways to use your space is to utilize overhead garage storage solutions.

There are many types of solutions and finding the right one for your situation is key. Today I am going over nine different overhead storage solutions to help you find the right fit for your needs and setup.

This storage solution is installed on your garage ceiling and provides 105 cubic feet of storage with a 22″ to 40″ drop range.

The storage rack comes with six vertical posts and long ceiling brackets that are designed to attach to studs, both of these features are for added safety and stability.

The load capacity for the Fleximounts 4×8 Storage Rack is 600 pounds. A great benefit of having a ceiling mounted storage solution is that you will be protecting your items from possibly water damage is things were stored on the garage floor.

Your tools, seasonal decor and other items will be safely out of reach of children as well with this option. Installation instructions are provided with step by step directions and there is also a YouTube video to help walk you through installation.
