If you’re not satisfied with the storage capacity of your garage, you don’t have to let it become an unorganized, chaotic space. Instead, you can try to find a garage storage solution that allows you to capitalize on the vertical space available to you. Home garages typically have high ceilings, but unless you make a plan to use all of the vertical space efficiently, you won’t be able to stack items high enough to fill it.
In the video, the host describes an efficient DIY garage storage solution that involves hanging totes from the ceiling. He creates racks that are perfectly sized to the totes he was able to purchase. The racks are made from plywood and pine boards that are cut to the length of the totes. Then, they are screwed into the ceiling of the garage. Once installed, the totes can slide smoothly over the racks and hang securely.
The host mentions that you need to take your garage door into account when installing hanging tote racks. The last thing you want is to impede your garage door’s movement, so either install the racks away from the garage door or make sure they can hang above it when it is open.
