For those searching for ideas on how to organise a garage, and who have some floor space to work with here’s a tip. Instead of buying those kind of feminine looking plastic containers to house your tools, and workspace equipment, go for galvanised bins. They look great, very masculine, and hold a tremendous amount of stuff. Plus, you just lift the lid to peer into it and see what’s inside should you forget. If you are going to be using several of these, then labelling them might assist you, so that you don’t have to pull the tops off at all.
These are superb for items that you think may be too heavy to hang on the wall, or are too obtrusive in shape or size to leave in sight. If you want to make things more unique you can always paint them with your favourite sports team colours. It’s a great place to decorate as you wish, and to do so freely. That said, most women I know love these galvanised cans as well, so any female counterparts will probably agree that they look fantastic. Perhaps though, you would prefer the room to refrain from being agreeable with a partners taste, then you might want to rethink this storage option. If you grow tired of them, or decide to do a “deep” clean of the garage, and thus no longer need the storage they work just as well in the garden. This is a good investment all around.
