Awesome Garage Storage Ideas You Can Do It Yourself Easily

Garage organization isn’t a universal solution; therefore, we’ve gathered a variety of our top garage storage concepts. Explore these suggestions to discover methods for enhancing the organization and usability of your garage.

Wire Shelving In the Garage

While no two garages are alike, one thing they might very well have in common is a deep need to be more organized. The walls are an obvious place to start.

Wall-mounted shelves are a simple fix that will help you maximize your garage storage space quickly and easily. Shelves, baskets and hooks are simple to install and inexpensive while offering you an endless array of customizable options. Save space and money with these affordable DIY garage storage projects.

The garage storage racks pictured here are an easy DIY project that will only take you one morning to set up.

Garage Storage Ideas for Fishing Gear

We got sick and tired of our fishing rods getting tangled, so we came up with this easy fishing rod organizer. All you need is a length of 3-in.-diameter PVC pipe and a foam swimming pool noodle for this DIY garage storage system.

  • Drill 1-in. holes spaced every 4 in. in the PVC pipe.
  • Use a utility knife to cut slits in the foam noodle, spacing them 4 in. apart.
  • Line up the pool noodle on the wall so that at least two of the slits sit over studs.
  • Pull those slits apart, slide in a fender washer, and screw the noodle to the wall with 2-in. screws.
  • Finally, screw the PVC pipe to the wall beneath it at a comfortable height and insert your fishing rods.

Car Care Products Cabinet

Organize your auto lubricants, fluids, and other items in this simple shelf/work table cabinet. Here’s your guide to DIY garage cabinets. You can mount a fold-up door on special hinges, but we’ll show you a faster method of how to organize your garage that requires just a couple of dollars’ worth of hardware.

Garage Overhead Storage

The garage ceiling is a perfect place to store light and medium-weight seasonal items like holiday decorations and camping gear. Get those big plastic storage bins up off the garage floor and onto the ceiling! You can build a ceiling garage storage system in a day.

  • Screw 2x2s to the ceiling framing with 3-1/2-in. screws spaced every 2 ft.
  • Use the bins as a guide for spacing the 2x2s. The lips on the bins should just brush against the 2x2s when you’re sliding the bins into place.
  • Then, center and screw 1x4s to the 2x2s with 2-in. screws.

Flexible Garage Storage Wall

This storage system solves two challenges: first, how to design storage space for the narrow alley between the garage side wall and your car; and second, how to create a solid mounting surface to hold shelves and hooks that are capable of carrying hundreds of pounds of stuff.

The solution is to create a framework of horizontal wood strips and inexpensive shelf standards. It can hold almost any arrangement of shelving and hooks, at any point on the wall, and it’s easy to rearrange.

Add Garage Storage Cabinets

The garage is so frequently used as a catch-all for home improvement projects and off-season gear, these easy cabinets will be well worth your time and dollar. We’ve come up with plans for an easy storage system that can be modified to suit any garage.

The best part? An 8-foot tall unit clocks in at only about $27 per linear foot–less than what pre-assembled shelving at the home center would run you. The materials include melamine, selected for its reasonable cost and the fact that is needs no finish, plus pine 1x4s.

Plan out your configuration with masking tape on the wall and floors, ensuring that each cabinet has at least on stud behind it so it can be securely fastened.

Garage Storage Tubes

Cardboard concrete-forming tubes are inexpensive and provide a great place to store baseball bats, long-handled tools, and rolls of just about anything. Rest the tubes on a piece of 2×4 to keep them high and dry and secure each tube to a garage stud with a plumbing strap

Long-Handled Tool Rack

This compact tool storage rack is strong and simple to build. You can store shovels, rakes, a sledgehammer—any long-handled tools—conveniently up and out of the way. The unit holds up to 14 items, giving you more flexibility and storage capacity than nails pounded in the wall. It’s an easy and useful storage idea for small garages.

Customizable Wall of Storage in One Weekend

This DIY garage storage system has the versatility of expensive store-bought systems, but you can make it yourself for a few hundred dollars in a single weekend.

Double-Duty Shelf Brackets

Shelf brackets designed to support clothes hanger rods aren’t just for closets. The rod-holding hook on these brackets comes in handy in the garage and workshop, too. You can even bend the hook to suit long tools or cords.

Store Lawn Chairs

Here’s how to store your lawn and folding chairs so they’re out of your way. Take two pieces of 1×4 lumber (any scrap lumber will do) and create some simple, cheap, and useful brackets on the wall. Cut each board 7-3/4 in. long with a 30-degree angle on both ends. Fasten pairs of these brackets with three 2-in. screws to the side of the exposed wall studs, directly across from each other, and you’ve got a perfect place to hang your chairs.

Build Big Cabinets in Place

You don’t have to be a cabinetmaker to build big, sturdy cabinets, especially if you build them in place. All you have to do is screw 2x2s to the wall and ceiling and then screw plywood panels to the 2x2s to form the top, bottom, and sides of cabinet boxes. This approach is simple, fast, and economical; the materials cost about $250. This cabinet would also be a great place for garage TV ideas, don’t you think?

Add Outdoor Storage

Sometimes the best cure for garage chaos is to add storage space elsewhere. A small locker that holds garden gear, for example, provides big relief to a crowded garage. Build your garden storage closet to free up space in the garage.

Upcycled Garage Storage Idea

Here’s a creative hack for that old wooden tennis racquet that’s gathering dust in the garage. Drill a hole in the handle and screw it to the underside of a workbench. Position the racquet so it can swing in and out from under the table. Use it to hold tools, parts, or other small items.

Pretty and Practical Box Shelves

These simple box shelves work equally well in a formal setting and a utilitarian room, like the laundry or garage. They offer an unlimited number of uses and arrangements. Hang some above the washer and dryer to store detergent, dryer sheets, and other laundry room necessities without taking up any valuable floor space.
