There are many different ways you can go when it comes time for selecting what is going to be the best type of garage storage solution to store your household items inside of your garage. Some people will stick with only one type of unit throughout the space while others will mix and match several different types of units and others will go with some kind of garage storage system. If you are going to be going with several different types of units in the garage space, then there is definitely a place for installing garage shelving which provides several different types of benefits.
Garage shelving allows you to see a lot of what you have on hand so it is easy to keep inventory so you don’t accidentally buy an item from the store that you already have. It also reduces the amount of time it takes when searching for items in the garage to be able to see it on the shelf instead of digging through multiple garage cabinets. Another reason to install shelving is it works good for putting boxes on. Most boxes are not going to fit in a storage cabinet or work with a storage system and are best to put on shelves.
Another benefit of having shelving is that you can fit it into smaller spaces unlike any other type of garage storage solution. If you need to fit it in a small space by the corner of the wall or want to put a unit close to the ceiling, then a shelf is going to work best in that space because it can be cut down to any size that is needed. It can also run less in cost than cabinets do because of the different types of materials that you have to pick from. For shelves, you can have metal, wood, wire or plastic as a material and still have a good amount of weight on them because of the support brackets. For cabinets, the weight is going to greatly vary depending on the material that the cabinet is made out of.
