Usually, garage used as more than a place for cars, but it is a good workshop in your home where you can do your diy project. If a garage used for more than placing cars, then it is needed to add shelving in order to make it free from cluttered. So, you can put your tools and household items to the shelves instead if cluttering the floor. Before adding shelving, it will be better if you make garage shelf plans as your guide to get your project work well.
If you use the garage for more than one car, you need to measure the space to left to add shelving. When taking the measurement, you need to consider left enough traffic foot in your garage. You can make garage shelf plans on a sketch pad on the back and side walls of the garage. The sketch will be transferred into graph paper sketch later. When drawing your plans, place the shelves with 24 inches apart. To maximize the space, use the spacing for container such as plastic or vinyl bins with lids. They can be used to store miscellaneous items. Simply give 2 inches between the top of the container with the shelves above. You can vary the distance between a series of floor-to-ceiling shelves using elongated strips that hold metal shelf brackets.
Install them vertically using metal screws. Measure the space for two or more brackets to support horizontal shelf and snap them into place. You can install pre-made wooden boards that are no less than 12 inches in width to make a form of the actual shelving. You need to use heavy materials when making the garage shelf plans since you will use your garage for storing heavy items. So, you can make it from 8-inch square post material for shelving.
