The Best Way to Use Your Garage

We all start off with the best of intentions when it comes to using the garage space well. Whether that means space to park your vehicles or a space to keep your kayaks, bikes, and other outdoor gear, most folks move into their homes with good intentions for the space. If your garage has since turned into an unusable space full of disorganized boxes, it’s most likely because of time — and a lack of purposeful organization. 

This is where Garage Solutions steps in to help. We use custom garage cabinets and flooring to create purpose for your garage that makes it easier to maintain a dedicated use for the space. It’s a great way to expand your living space, create room for your hobbies, or get organized. Ultimately, our goal is to turn your garage into a useful space while adding value — no matter how you want to use the space. Custom garage cabinets in particular are a great way to provide value through use as well as the financial benefit that comes from upgrading the space with durable, long-lasting storage. 

No matter how you choose to use your garage, custom cabinetry is going to have a major impact. The biggest benefits to choosing custom garage cabinets include: 

  • Much more durable than DIY options
  • Efficient use of space 
  • More customized storage options
  • Better return on investment than prefab/DIY options
  • Saves time and effort when looking for or storing items
  • Reducing disorganization so you can easily use the space
  • And more… 

Whether you want to convert your garage into a game room or use the space for storage, custom garage cabinets generally just last longer and work better, which gives a better overall financial benefit. So what are you waiting for? Now is the time to make your garage the envy of the neighborhood. 

Steel vs Wood Garage Cabinets

Here at Garage Solutions, we believe in providing the best product for your needs and budget — which is why we always start with a consultation. We provide both steel and wood garage cabinets in a range of different finishes so the end result will truly match your plans. These are no flimsy metal or cheap DIY wood options. Our metal garage cabinets are all made with thick, sturdy steel and high-end European-style self-closing hinges. Our wood garage cabinets are made using thick slats of wood and dowel construction instead of industrial staples. And, no matter which option you choose, all of our custom garage cabinets are measured to fit your space and installed on-site by our experienced team so you get the best results possible. Now the only trouble is trying to decide which options best fit what you need!

Planning Custom Garage Cabinets

Looking at the myriad options for custom garage cabinets can be overwhelming. You don’t want the end result to look like a DIY project gone wrong, either! Not to worry, the Garage Solutions team is here to help. We guide you through every step of the process to ensure that the end result is nothing short of flawlessly ideal for you. Read through the steps below for a bit of guidance to get your gears turning, and then connect with the Garage Solutions team to learn more and schedule your consultation. 

Plan the Use for Your Space

Before you dive into picking your custom garage cabinets and flooring, it’s important to know how you want to use your garage because that will shape all of your decisions. Do you want to get organized and improve storage, or are you more interested in totally revamping the space? Custom garage cabinets can provide you with the storage solutions to protect your outdoor gear, organize tools, create better ways to arrange your seasonal decor, and so on. Similarly, the right arrangement of custom garage cabinets can help convert your garage into another living space, specialty entertainment area, or workshop. Plan your intended usage up-front, and this will pave the way for the rest of your choices

Map Out Storage Needs

Whether you are converting your garage into a different use or not, most people still need some level of storage. As you plan and prepare, take inventory of everything currently stored in your garage and note anything that will need to stay. This is also an ideal time to go through everything in your garage and sell or donate the items you no longer use or need. Knowing what you have (and what you plan to keep) will help guide the different garage storage solutions we include. 

In addition to looking at the current state of affairs in your garage, this is also the step in which you will want to consider future storage needs — especially if you will start using your garage for another purpose. If you intend to use your garage as a home office, or maybe as a woodworking shop, our custom garage cabinet team can help you plan special storage for tools, workout gear, or whatever else will be going in the space. Don’t worry, though, as long as you have an idea of what needs to be accommodated, we can provide the right solutions. 

Choose Your Custom Garage Cabinets

At this point, you should have narrowed down your scope enough that choosing garage cabinet materials and finishes is a lot easier — but don’t worry, our experienced team will guide you through this decision-making process as well. When choosing between steel and wood garage cabinets, you’ll need to consider uses and durability needs as well as aesthetics. Peruse the cabinet finishes below to get an idea of the different choices available, and ask your Garage Solutions technician about seeing samples in-person before making your final choice. 

Measurements, Renderings, and Installation

Once all the hard decisions are made, the Garage Solutions team will step in and do what we do best. Now that we know your budget, needs, and cabinet preferences, we will measure the space to ensure your new garage cabinets fit perfectly. We’ll provide you with a 3D rendering so you can see what the final product will look like in your space, and get your approval to move forward. From there, it’s simply a matter of creating your garage cabinets and scheduling the installation date with you! 

The Garage Solutions Commitment to Quality

At Garage Solutions, we are committed to high-quality custom garage cabinets and flooring solutions on every single project. We always start with a consultation to get a well-rounded idea of your needs, budget, and timeline. From there, we’ll walk you through the design process, show you samples, and discuss options. After the consultation, our team will mock up 3D renderings of what your garage will look like with your custom garage cabinets and flooring installed. When you see these, you’ll make the final approvals on design, finishes, accessories, and colors. Then we schedule your installation and show up on the appointed day to build your custom garage cabinets. The end result is beautiful, durable cabinetry that was made for you!
