One of the most difficult parts of garage organization is figuring out how to get things off the floor. You only have so much surface space, and it’s important to save cabinet and overhead space for larger items. But if your floor is littered with small items, it can become a tripping hazard. Shoving some of them in a drawer might work, but then you end up with a disorganized mess where things are bound to get damaged – especially if you have more small items than drawer space. And what about items that don’t fit easily in drawers and cabinets, like shovels and rakes? Take a look at one great way that you can use your space to cut down on the clutter.
If your garage walls are bare, you’re missing out on a great opportunity to cut down on your garage clutter, get more organized, and improve the aesthetic in your garage, all at the same time. You can do this with a slatwall system.
Slatwall is a type of paneling that contains horizontal grooves. Those grooves are able to accept a variety of different items that may be helpful for storing things in your garage. For example, they could store hooks that you could use to hang hand tools, or racks meant for holding things like rakes and brooms.
The great thing about installing slatwall over your garage walls is that it turns your entire garage into a versatile storage space. Slatwall allows for more than just hooks and racks. Need shelf space? How about a bike rack? Or a paper towel holder? You can add all of these things with your slatwall system, and if it covers all your wall space, you can make sure that you have the storage you need where you need it. You can also move things around when you need to.
This gives slatwall a distinct advantage over just installing shelves or a pegboard somewhere in your garage. While these things may be useful, they tend not to be easily movable, and you probably wouldn’t want wall-to-wall shelves or pegboard. Slatwall is much more practical and attractive.
Another good thing about a slatwall system is that it can be very durable if you choose the right system. Garage Envy’s Wallscape Slatwall Systems are made of strong, high-quality PVC. They are both waterproof and fireproof, resisting the type of damage that can occur in a garage under both normal and extreme circumstances.
The material is also easy to maintain. You won’t need to paint your Wallscape system. It won’t damage or scuff your car doors, and it’s simple to clean. Your Wallscape Slatwall system will continue to look as good as it did on the day that you had it installed.
