How to Save Space in Your Garage

With property prices on the rise and the market unstable, the extra space a garage provides is all the more valuable nowadays, and many of us are seeing our garages serving dual purposes, with storage being one popular use. If you’re trying to maximise the space you have inside your garage, Rollerdor Ltd can help. Here we’ve listed some fantastic space saving tips you can use to make the most out of your garage.

Clear out

Firstly, take some time to clear your garage out. Be ruthless, and throw out or donate anything you have stored in there that you don’t use. The less clutter you have to store, the more space you’ll free up, and the easier your next job will be!


To make your garage as useable as possible, it is best to organise your belongings into categories such as garden tools, woodwork tools, long term storage etc. Grouping your items together will not only make it easier to find things, but it allows you to store items together logically, so that the things that you won’t be using for some time can be put out of the way, while the items you will need regular access to can be stored in a more convenient location.


Now you’ve organised your belongings, it’s time to get creative with storage. Items that are going to be stored long term can be packed neatly into crates or bins and placed in the very back corner of the garage so they’re out of the way.

Wall shelving is a great way to store other items that will want to be accessed regularly, like sports equipment, but be wary when building shelves that if you want to continue to store your vehicle in the garage you need to make sure to leave enough width space for your car to park inside.

For bulky items like bicycles, consider having some pegs or rails put into your wall so you can neatly store your bike off the floor, saving a great deal of walkway space.

Another tip for keeping your garage clutter minimal is to create peg boards that can be attached to the walls to store your tools on. Not only does this allow you to see where everything you need is, it saves having a toolbox lying around and makes use of a space that otherwise wouldn’t be used.

Ceiling storage is a fantastic space saving option for those of you with headroom above your car, and this option provides plenty of storage space for bulky items without it impeding on the amount of floor space you have to work with. Be warned when using this method of storage that it may not be compatible with your garage door. Some garage door systems require mechanisms to be fitted into the roof of your garage, and ceiling storage might impede how the door functions.

Roller garage door


You can make the most of the space within your garage door by opting for a roller garage door as opposed to any of the other door styles. Roller doors take up a minimal amount of space, being fitted into the recess of the door and simply sliding up and out of view instead of back into the inside of your garage. As roller doors don’t require the ceiling fittings of other style doors, this is a great option for those of you who want to make the most of ceiling storage.
