How Do You Create More Storage Space to Your Garage Ceiling?

Organizing,Home Improvement,Home Repair
This article is a short summary of various ceiling storage alternatives. Weigh the advantages and disadvantages and choose what is the best fit for your garage organizing challenge. Regardless of the option you select, take into consideration weight capacity of the overhead storage products and be safe.

You may construct a hanging shelf out of lumber. This options calls for the correct tools for cutting timber, in addition to a small amount of handyman ability. If you are comfortable fastening, cutting, and measuring this method could be right for you. Many websites offer free blueprints for hanging rack, so you don’t have to be a professional carpenter. Yet one negative thing is that the decking will most likely be a piece of wood. This is disadvantageous to wire decking due to the fact you can’t see through the wood to spot what you’ve stacked in the buried parts of your rack.

The second option is to install a metal ceiling storage shelf. If you possess the specialized tools and a supply of angle iron, you may be able to make one yourself. However I predict you won’t save much money. Should you make your own shelf, remember to include the price of decking. If you opt to just shop for an hanging shelf, you have numerous manufacturers to pick from including Strong Racks, Topp Rax, SafeRacks, Onrax, and Hyloft. This is nothing close to an exhaustive list of brand names. I highly recommend you look for my other posts because I plan to do a pros and cons regarding these brands.

I have seen an image floating around on social networking sites (Pinterest) of 2x4’s mounted on a garage ceiling which has red totes that slip into the T-shaped channels. As neat as this solution looks, those specific bins with sturdy lips around the top are expensive. To get a group of containers, you might as well pay for a rack and hire a person to mount it for you. Additionally, the totes are not clear. I am a nitpicker for making use of clear bins for long-term storage due to the fact it can be really easy to forget what items you stored in each container. Labeling can be sufficient when you tag at least two sides on the container and do not put things inside the bin that doesn't fall under that label. Or merely keep it uncomplicated and make use of transparent totes.

A different way to convert unused ceiling space into space for storing is by installing a shelf along the perimeter of the garage. Once again, there is an alternative to build or buy. This kind of shelves are enough size to store a row of totes. This style of shelving does not entice you into burying your bins double deep, however I don't like the wasted space in the middle of the ceiling. One particularly creative product you can purchase online is the Monkey Bar storage shelf. They offer many configurations put together by using standard parts in different combinations. Their rack can be purchased like a tool rack, ski rack, golf rack, shelf kit, etc. I particularly enjoy the easily moveable hooks as it allows me to shuffle around how I originally created to be my perfect arrangement of hooks, but discovered there is on a slightly better order of setting up the hooks. This sort of shuffling is not fun when I make use of several individual nails and hooks.

My final suggestion for overhead storage is a powered lift. Modest products like the Racor brand lift has less impressive weight limits of 250 lbs. Garage Gator sells a versatile arrangement of power-driven cables and hooks. And for the powerful lifts, look for the Loft-It storage lift. This monster features a 1200 pound weight limit so you can put a motorcycle, riding mower, or small watercraft on it. This product is costly, but less than building an extra garage!
