Garage Cabinets - Garage Ideas & Cleaning Tips

The garage: one of the parts of your average home that often gets very little attention and falls victim to neglect. If you were not careful this largest room in most homes can begin to be neglected and not look as nice as you would want it to look. There are garage ideas, like garage cabinets for example, that you can do that will significantly improve the look of your garage space.

Clearing all the junk that has accumulated over the years is the first order of business that needs to happen in most garages. For some people this can be a small task, for others it may involve several runs to the landfill. Remember, if items have been stored in the garage this long it is unlikely that they will ever be used. Items that have some useful life left may be donated to charity or some other organization. Once you have the garage cleared of excess debris, you may be surprised at the amount of room that is available. While the garage is empty, you may want to consider painting the walls and ceilings of the room. Using a roller and some brushes along with two to three gallons of paint can make a quick improvement in your garage’s appearance.

Also consider getting had a fine set of San Diego epoxy floors installed. If your garage has been stained over the years, an epoxy floor covering can protect your garage floor and is very long lasting and this is one of the garage ideas that can make a vast improvement in many garages. When it is time to move the things you cannot part with back into the garage, you may want to call your local garage cabinet company to put in shelves or cabinets for you to better organize the space. Large plastic bins can also help to keep items free of dust and better organized for finding things easier. This is so because San Diego garage cabinets help you organize your garage space very effectively.

Once the garage is cleaned and looking great, you will want to schedule time each month to keep the clutter from accumulating again. If yours is like most other garages, this task requires constant attention. For additional information, visit at 2588 El Camino Real Ste F-139 Carlsbad, CA 92010 to learn more.

Great Cabinet Concept
by: GarageTips-101, Editor

As a retired architect I can see great wisdom in the garage cabinets that are displayed in the photo from the poster in San Diego. I have a couple of comments as follows:

First: They are wall mounted so that the base is above the floor allowing for cleaning under the cabinets. You could easily hose-out any dust, dirt and debris that blows under them when the garage door is open.

To wall mount cabinets that can carry a substantial load is a real trick. The backs have to be constructed differently than base (floor) mounted cabinets. It is not easy to accomplish successfully!

Second: These are some great looking cabinets. I could appreciate them inside my home just as I could in my garage. They have a clean look about them that doesn't draw your attention away from the overall space. They fit-in well. This is important in architectural design.

Third: They appear to be very functional with doors that expose the entire interior of the storage space for ease of access to the tools, etc. inside. Functionality is also very important in architectural design.

I think the people of San Diego, CA are lucky to have such high quality garage cabinetry available.
