Augment Cabinetry In Garage Or Storage Areas With Grid Systems For Organizing Your Gear

Ronald Hayes

If you want to protect the tools, utensils, and gear that you spent good money on, you may find that a grid panel organizational system is the best way to get them up off the floor, out of crowded cabinets, and put safely within reach. These systems are inexpensive to implement, and many homeowners find that this is a project that is simple enough to do themselves.

Some things to remember when adding these systems around your existing cabinets include:

Grid panels.

One of the features of a grid panel system is the lightweight nature of the material, which makes it easier for you to complete the project on your own. The coated metal frame of the grid can be used to hang a number of hooks, pegs, and shelves vertically to support your tools, garden supplies, and utensils securely in place. Another perk of going with a grid system is the fact that it is a low-cost way to optimize the storage and function of closets, cabinets, or toolboxes.

Perfect positions.

It is important to install the grid panel straight, so use a level. The corners of any cabinets along the wall can serve as a guide when securing and installing your panels. 

Custom features.

There are many clever features that you can buy or use to keep tools organized along your grid, including things like a magnetic strip to keep all of your screwdrivers or knives in place. Depending on the type of work that you use the space for, you may want to invest in some larger hooks to hold things like shovels or rakes. Inexpensive wire clips secure shelves and baskets to the grid to contain your smaller items.

Added details.

You may also want to consider surrounding your grid with pegboard on the walls for additional organizational space. There are many inexpensive hooks, shelving, and other fixtures that will store your stuff off of your work surface while still keeping them close by and convenient to access.

Grid storage systems are inexpensive and easy to install, and these are a great solution for making the most of the cabinetry in the home, garage, and workshop. Talk with hardware and home improvement retailers about the various options and price points available, and ask about the hardware and tools needed to complete the project. With a convenient, inexpensive grid system of organization, you may be able to optimize and transform the storage in and around the cabinets in your home.
