Kids' Zone A storage bench in the garage is the perfect spot to keep sports equipment. This one stashes playthings in one tidy place. Not only is it an organizational gem, it's also a convenient area to put on shoes or a jacket before heading outdoors Kids Boys Rooms, Kids Area, Kids Sports, Garage Storage, Sports Equipment Storage, Garage Benches, Storage Ideas, Storage Benches, Kids Zone
Garden Zone For a multifunction garage, divide the space into zones, designed for different tasks. Transform a simple potting station into the ultimate garden storage center with a few space-saving solutions. Adjustable shelving enables you to customize your space as needed. Here, staggered wire shelves corral pots, seeds, and fertilizers. A neat row of hooks beneath keeps garden tools within reach. Use magnetic message boards to organize garden tips and to-do lists
Locker Room: A tall metal locker is a safe haven for car maintenance, instruction manuals, and warranty information.
Mobile car washing station: A utility cart is durable enough to handle a variety of accessories. It's also easy to maneuver, which is a plus when you're cleaning your car. Equip the cart with chamois, cleaners, and squeegees for a quick and easy car cleanup.
Instant Mudroom -- Fashion a mudroom near a main entry point -- the garage, back door, or front entrance -- by pairing a bench with decorative hooks. Take advantage of stock cabinetry drawers to create a storage-packed bench base. Top with cushions to create a soft seat when it's time for shoe removal.
Expect more from your garage -- transform a wall into a haven for all of your gardening gear. Customize your storage with adjustable wire shelves suspended above a potting bench. Use small, clear plastic boxes to keep potting materials dry and organized, and hang long-handled tools from inexpensive clips to keep them out from underfoot. bhg.com
All Hung Up Add a bit of color to your garage storage. Paint squares on a pegboard to designate spots for specific items. Hang the pegboard on wall stud and equip it with bins for an innovative storage system. The sideways bins stow often-used accessories that are not easily hung from hooks, such as gardening gloves and hose nozzles. Mount a large bucket to the pegboard for a modern take on a hose reel to boost function.
