1. Working With Walls

Whether your garage is spacious or limited in its capacity, the one thing that all garages have in common is the presence of three sturdy walls. Mounting hooks, brackets, and other hardware can be an instant way to maximize the space you have in a clean, easy, and organized way.

One tactic is to add a layer of three-quarter-inch plywood over the drywall or bare studs. This provides a continuous fastening surface that allows for hardware to be easily stored and then removed for easy access. You can also cram more things onto the wall as the space permits.
