How to create more workspace in your garage

Whether you simply store your cars, have made the ultimate man cave or just use the space for your weekend projects, the garage is such a versatile space!

The question is, are you getting the most use out of your garage? We have found some easy ways to transform your garage into a dynamic space, so you can make the most of every inch! Even better, these changes are easy, quick and will give you so much more flexibility to use your garage.

Read on to find out how you can boost your garage space.

Think vertically

A great way to enhance your space is to utilise your wall space for storage. Bunnings have a range of Smart Wall Panels which allow you to attach different accessories and slide them all along the panel to position them wherever you need. They have a bunch of baskets, hooks, shelves, tools holders and even a cleaning station with paper towel holder so you can tailor your space to you!

The Smart Garage wall all Panels are strong enough to hold bikes, wheelbarrows and large equipment, while still being slim enough to fit a cabinet or locker in front of when not in use. Unlike bulky hooks or suspension systems that you would have to uninstall to make changes to, the panels can stay on your walls whether you use them or not, giving you the ultimate flexibility.

Repurpose your current setup

The easiest way to get more out of your garage is to adjust what you currently have! If you already have cabinets, you can add roll out and sliding shelving to maximise storage.

Rev-A-Shelf have a range of horizontal and vertical options including baskets, containers, organisers and bin holders which make your cabinets more flexible to suit your needs. The sliding brackets extend fully for easy access to all your essentials tools.

Make a workbench work for you

Installing a workbench will transform your garage into a versatile workspace for your DIY projects, to use as a home office space or a place for the kids to do some arts and crafts!

Bunnings have some great options with tips for how to build pegboards and drawers to store your tools, so you can keep your garage organised! Check here for step-by-step instructions.

You also have the option to use a workbench without any accessories, so you can put your own cabinets or storage boxes underneath. Alternatively, you can leave the space open so you can pull up a chair to give yourself some comfort while you work!

Customisation is key 

Lockers are an easy way to maximise storage and these too can be customised to help you get more out of the work areas in the garage

Montgomery have a wide range of storage lockers with, and without, doors so you can hide or display items. They also have lockers on wheels, allowing you to move them around easily in your garage.

Customise your lockers by adding shelves and drawers inside, attach peg boards to organise your tools or magnets to display photos or reminders. The possibilities are endless, and they can easily be moved in and out of the garage if you need extra space.
