Divide the walls into major and minor storage walls. Major walls can accommodate storage from ceiling to floor and the storage can utilize the entire wall even when the car is parked. The major wall of the garage is typically the wall in front of the vehicles. Regularly used items should be stored on the major wall. Minor walls are where storage space is limited or obstructed. Typically storage is positioned higher on the wall because room is needed for open car doors and walkway space.
Create garage organization zones to maximize the design. (1)
To maximize garage shelving, position large or heavy items on lower shelves for easy lifting, regularly used items at eye level and light-weight or infrequently used items up high.
