Managing piles of stuff stored in the garage is a common problem amongst homeowners, and for many, better use of one thing could save the day: the garage wall. Storage ideas that use this vertical space effectively work on two levels. They maximize space and they cut clutter.

This idea works best with lighter items. It could be dangerous if these boxes get too heavy, not to mention difficult to remove.

Unfolding worktable

The garage can be a great place to do messy projects, like painting. But it’s not practical for most folks to have a huge worktable in there all the time. Well, not a traditional work table, at least.

That’s where the folding table comes in handy. It opens into a spacious flat surface, perfect for all types of projects that won’t work well inside the home, but closes out of sight when you’re done.
