Organizing a Garage with Wood Walls and a Flat Ceiling

This is the easiest type of garage to organize as hanging shelves and from the walls is relatively easy when you have wood walls. Also, a flat ceiling makes it easy to utilize overhead storage.

Garage Shelving

The first step to organizing a garage is choosing shelving. You can choose between freestanding shelving or wall mounted. You'll also have the choice between adjustable shelving and fixed shelving. You'll also have to decide how much time you're willing to spend on shelving. Making and installing your own shelves can be much cheaper, but usually takes a great deal more time to setup.
