Rev Up Your Garage

Learn How Closets By Design Can Take Your Garage Organization and Storage to the Next Level

This impressive garage project began last year as a request from the homeowner’s son to create an at-home gym. They needed to free up space in the basement by shifting some storage to the garage. So, they reached out to Closets by Design (CBD) to accomplish their organizational goals while also upgrading the look of the garage. A year later, the space looks just as clean and organized as the day it was finished, and the owner’s son is happily using his home gym.  

1. Design and Installation

A designer from CBD meets with the client to discuss their storage needs. “We identify obstacles and work with the homeowner to design a storage solution that fits their space and works best for them,” says CBD Project Designer Trey Wight. After the customer approves the designs, cabinets are built at their factory. Next, the installation team sets up the space per the approved drawings. 

2. Storage Solutions 

“Clients are typically looking for garage storage solutions to accommodate belongings such as lawn and garden equipment, sporting goods and holiday decor,” explains Trey. “We use a combination of cabinets and DesignWall systems to store or hang the customer’s items.”   

3. Wall Organization

The DesignWall is a great way to save space by hanging lawn tools, small power-tools, sporting goods and hoses or extension cords. Available in several colors and with accessories like hooks and baskets that allow for hanging just about anything, the DesignWall hanging storage system featured in this garage is in Grey. 

4. Cabinets

Cabinets are fully customizable to fit the client’s space and store a variety of items.The floor-based systems use legs with leveling adjusters to compensate for uneven floors. The cabinets are leveled and then attached to the wall for greater stability. All cabinets are built with shelves strengthened with metal supports to hold heavier items. This design has custom Black melamine cabinets with shelf and door stiffeners. It also features doors and drawer faces in Brushed Aluminum with Matte Nickel barrel handles. 

5. Flooring

CBD uses tiles that are heat, slip and chemical resistant. The tiles interlock for fast installation and come in several colors that allow the customer to create their own design. Flooring can be installed over chipped or cracked concrete and is easily cleaned using a leaf blower or hose. This project uses a smooth Traxtile polymer tile floor with a custom color and design.
