[info_box]Whether you want your garage to feel like an extension of your home, prefer it exude the attitude of a racing garage or have something else in mind, you’ve got many attractive options for storage and cabinetry. Here’s an overview of what you’ll find as you explore our cabinetry and storage pages.[/info_box]
Wood cabinets remain very popular for garages. They don’t look like kitchen cabinets though. You have the same attractive wood and finish choices, but the styling is less refined as you might expect. Lines are sleeker and edges are crisper. Hardware is often beefier, though you’ve got many choices. Whether your plans are to use the garage as living space or park your vehicles in it, traditional wood cabinets provide good-looking storage space for your gear.
Stainless Steel Cabinets:
If you want tough, attractive cabinetry that delivers an upscale atmosphere to the garage, stainless steel is a great choice. It stands up to oil, resists corrosion and will look great for decades. Stainless steel bench tops and countertops are the way to go when choosing stainless steel cabinets.
These cabinets bring a clean and neat demeanor to the garage. Powder coatings are very durable, stain-resistant and come in a range of handsome colors. The price is attractive too. Quality countertops and bench tops are available in matching or complementary colors.
As a complement to cabinets, or in place of them, you’ve got lots of options for organization systems. They’re a great way to make efficient use of your space and clear the floor or workbench of clutter. Some even attach to the rafters to provide overhead storage. Each type of system has its own accessories to maximize usefulness and performance.
Shopping for Cabinetry
Cabinets made specifically for garages often come in pre-determined groupings, wall kits and stations. They work well for most projects. Individual components and custom-made cabinetry allow you to configure the space exactly the way you want it. You’ll have your choice of full-length cabinets, traditional base and upper cabinets with countertops/benches or a blend of both. When shopping also consider renewable or sustainable resources, often times materials such as reclaimed wood or recycled crushed glass are less expensive and add unique character.
Our pages and guides give you information you can use to determine the specifics of the cabinetry you’ll install as part of your garage renovation project.
