Garages serve multiple purposes in a household. Garages can be both a car park and a tool shed. Garages can also serve as playrooms for kids and as a work room for a certain hobby. Whatever function your garage serves, there is one key element that your garage should never be without: a good garage storage cabinet. What should you look for in a good garage storage cabinet? Here are some important key points to consider when choosing a garage storage cabinet: Durability Since your garage storage cabinet will be holding equipments, tools and other things which, for some reason you do not want stored in your house, garage storage cabinets have to be made of durable material. Garage storage cabinets have to be strong and sturdy in containing all types of materials whether they be made of metal, iron, and others. Also the more durable the material of your garage storage cabinet, the less likely you will be replacing it within the next few years. This will save you money.
Many things in the home can be kept in storage cabinets, like media discs, cleaning and office supplies, and board games. In the garage, storage is often needed for various types of equipment and an assortment of tools. Many things stored in the garage can be valuable, such as tools sets and power equipment. In that case, a lockable storage cabinet may be preferable, since the tools will be more protected. There are many types of locking tool storage cabinets to choose from. Determining your budget is the first step in finding adequate tool storage. Really nice storage cabinets that are larger than needed might be tempting to buy if the budget has not been established beforehand. Next, know how many tools need to fit inside the cabinets, and which of them must be behind a locked door. The size of the tools will also play a part in the cabinets selected. Once those needs are assessed, the next step is to measure the area of the garage being allocated for storage to be sure the cabinets will fit. If floor space is limited, wall-mounted cabinets are an option to consider, and if there are several project stations in the garage a rolling cabinet might be best.
There are many cabinet systems made today for areas of the home and the garage with choices in color, design, size, and material. Garage systems have been more popular over the past decade due to homeowners making their garages more of a focal point. In the past garages only stored vehicles and boxes of clutter that found their way into the garage. Now, people are using garages as either major storage centers or display rooms showing off their vehicles as well as a finished area. The extent to what you want to turn your garage into is up to the owner, however budget limits can exceed $10,000...it depends on all the bells and whistles you may want to add in.
Regular Storage Cabinets are similar in strength to their metal garage cabinet counterpart in load capacities per shelf and overall unit capacity. The real advantage they do have is the selection they offer to the consumer. There is a great selection and advantage of storage cabinets in regards to sizes, styles, options and colors. If the cabinet has to have leveling legs for the uneven surface of the garage, this option exists for storage cabinets...typically $5 per cabinet to add on. Cabinets come with adjustable shelving and fixed shelving options, with shelf capacities being a bit higher with fixed shelving. An example would be for a 36" wide shelf, the fixed shelf is 230 lbs of load where the adjustable is 180 lbs.
For reasons I could never understand some rooms were built without closets or storage cabinets. In the case of such rooms storage options will have to be added. The choice of added storage will depend on your tastes and budget. There are fabulous antique armoires and storage cabinets that can be picked up from boutique antique collections. Check your Yellow Pages for the contact information of antique dealers in your area. Equally functional and much less expensive options can be found at stores like Ikea or Home Depot or Lowes.
