Is your garage storage system the envy of everyone on your block or could it use some work?
We know the frustration of a messy, disorganized garage. Whether you’re searching endlessly for that box you could swear was on your garage floor last week or you are left tripping over children’s toys and bikes, this space can bring a lot of grief if it isn’t optimally designed.
If your garage has a ways to go before it’s the epitome of your dream garage space, this post is for you! Today we’re going to share the best garage storage solutions and systems for 2021 to help you create the functional, streamlined space you’ve only ever dreamed of.
The Best Garage Storage Solutions for 2021
Keep in mind, the best garage storage solutions are different for every homeowner. Maybe you have a special hobby that calls for unique storage solutions. Or maybe you’re just looking for a neat place to park your car. Or perhaps all that and then some! But no matter your storage needs, you’ll find a great idea for garage storage in this post.
Bikes are one of the most notoriously difficult to store items! But there are plenty of ways to keep your bike in its rightful place and not take up any extra room. And that includes with a bike hook like this one:
sh With your bike mounted on the wall, it saves valuable floor space for parking your car or storing other items. It also makes it easy to grab your bike when you need it, or store it for long periods of time when it’s not in use. If you have several bikes, more hooks can be added to store the bikes side by side or throughout your garage.
Sports equipment storage
Do you have a sports buff at your house? Sports equipment has a way of making its way all over the house, the yard, and in the garage if it doesn’t have a designated space.
Adding hanging baskets in the garage meant specifically for these items is a great way to keep them in their place when they’re not in use. Bonus points if these baskets are labeled!
If you have young children who need access to the baskets, it’s especially important to make sure they are accessible.

Garage storage for a multi-functional space
Who said your garage is just for your car and miscellaneous storage? Many people use their garage as a multifunctional space, particularly for hobbies. This gives you a little getaway just steps from your home, and it can help you save space inside your home for other things.
For example, take a look at this miniature garage arcade we designed for a client. The equipment is neatly tucked into available space, while still leaving plenty of room for vehicles and other storage.

Most hobbies require some equipment…whether it’s fishing, gardening, exercising, or even knitting. Garage storage is often the prime place to keep this equipment, particularly for activities that take place outdoors. To make sure your hobby equipment is organized and accessible, consider some unique garage storage solutions for these items.
Here are a few examples.
This fishing rod holder is an excellent way to keep your fishing rod relatively flush to the wall so it’s not causing a tripping hazard or taking up any extra room in your garage. If you have several fishing rods, we can help you find a fishing rod storage solution for all of your equipment.
Gardening is another hobby that needs plenty of tools and equipment to do, and most of the time, that equipment takes up a lot of room! Without a shed to store your gardening equipment, garage storage is the next best choice. When we meet with you, we will help you find a specialized storage solution for your equipment just like we did for this client.
Auto mechanics is another hobby that requires plenty of space and the right tools. For this client, we created a space in their garage that neatly organized all of their supplies, while also showing off their personality and creating a totally unique space. Notice the details, like the paper towel hangers, small hanging baskets, and see-through shelves?
Multiple garage storage options
Chances are, your garage is used to store all kinds of objects, and they are all different sizes and shapes. It’s incredibly important to have garage storage that’s going to work with all of these items. That means, choosing a number of different storage options is usually the best way to go.
For example, this design includes tall and short cupboards, counter space, shelves, drawers, and other storage options.
A mudroom in the garage
No in-home mudroom? No problem! Many garages can accommodate a similar space, and there are plenty of advantages to doing so. Creating a mudroom in the garage is a helpful way to keep muddy footprints and other messes outside of the house.
In this option, you’ll see there are individualized spaces, each with seating, hooks, and other storage. Having designated storage spaces for different family members is another useful way to keep things where they belong.
