What should you be considering when buying garage wall panels?
When choosing what type of garage wall panels to go with, consider how important these nine factors are to you:
- storage space needed
- load capacity required
- ease of installation
- variety of hanging accessories
- convenience of use
Chemical clutter People often store pesticides, pool products, automotive fluids, antifreeze, paint, and paint thinner haphazardly all over the garage—sometimes even in old food containers or soda bottles.
Keep dangerous liquids in their original containers, sealed tightly, off the floor, locked in a central cabinet, and away from a pilot light. The exception is gasoline: If you must have it on hand, follow guidelines from the National Fire Protection Agency. Use an approved, tightly sealed red plastic or metal container labeled gasoline that holds no more than 5 gallons.
Designate a corner of the garage for bikes, sleds, sports equipment, and toys. Stash them on a low shelf or use hooks to hang them on the wall within easy reach of kids. Corral loose items like tennis, golf, or soccer balls in bins or mesh bags.
