The Garage is the most crowded place in the entire house and you would want to save as much space as you can to make more room in the garage. The overhead garage is one such solution to your space problem. It’s a great way of organizing things. You get added floor space which enables you to work more freely and allows you to park your car back inside in case there was no room for it earlier and you were parking it elsewhere. And of course, you get more storage space and since it is overhead, things won’t get in your way. It also protects your stuff from water damage and saves you money in many areas. On today’s blog we at Potomac Garage Solutions want to discuss some tips on garage overhead storage.
Be careful about the weight

Although the overhead garage is a really convenient way to store stuff, but remember not to keep items that are too heavy. Keep light weight things for the overhead shelves and keep heavyweight objects in lower cabinets. It is recommended that the total weight does not exceed 210 lbs. Creating a sliding system storage can be useful. We can not only help you select overhead storage options but we can also help with the installation. Our company of professionals at Potomac Garage Solutions makes use of materials that are a bit stronger than those you'll find at home centers or department stores.
Make use of walls too
A lot of stuff that the ceiling won’t support can easily be supported by your walls. You’d be surprised to know what interesting uses your garage walls have. You can make provision to hang almost everything there, from lights and heavy tools and sports equipment to even bicycles and skateboards. Also, wall cabinets and shelves always come in handy. So yes, go vertical.

There are numerous other ways in which you can utilize overhead shelves to the fullest. You can screw the lid of jars to the bottom of a shelf so that it is attached. This gives you another way to use shelves and saves more room in the garage. Also, you can make use of your waste wire baskets; you can hang them on the wall or arrange a sliding system, it would also save you a lot of money. Avoid keeping breakable stuff in overhead racks or shelves, though. If you want to, however, keep some important stuff there, make sure you use strong racks. We deal in all kinds of overhead garage storage accessories and you would not complain of their strength.
