Here we’d like to show you a recent Complete Garage installation, which completely transforms one customer’s space. Like many busy families, our client has a wide array of sporting goods – including skis, bikes, and hockey gear – as well as their lawn and sidewalk tools. Using a combination of cabinets by Redline garagegear and slat wall panels by StoreWALL, we filled all the available wall space to provide the maximum in storage and organization. The finished product looks great, and the customer can still park their car in here! Colors – “Pewter” for the cabinets, and “Weathered Gray” for the slat wall – were chosen in conjunction with their choice for the floor coating they had done. (We don’t do the floors ourselves, but would be happy to put you in contact with Doug at Applied Industrial Flooring, who did this flooring project.)
As with most garages, some of the many challenges presented by this one include the passage required for the garage door, the electrical panel near the entrance, and the tank for the central vacuum system. You can see here that the slat wall was trimmed out around the electrical panel, and we staggered the heights of the cabinets to clear the garage door track. On the right hand side of this photo you can see that we’ve managed to hang most of the winter sports gear: skis, sleds and hockey equipment. Accessories went behind doors inside the cabinets, including some of the warm weather gear, like golf bags.
In the back, we positioned a lot of the summer gear, like the bicycles, tennis and baseball equipment, etc. At the end we also had to work around the central vac tank, a spigot on the wall for the garden hose, and various bulkheads at the ceiling. The versatility of StoreWALL’s PVC panels (you wouldn’t want to mount MDF slat wall around the plumbing!) makes performing those cutouts smooth and simple, and where required, the matching trims finish off the gaps with a framing effect. And of course, the whole point of using slat wall is that the various hooks and accessories can be easily relocated as the customer’s needs and belongings change.
At the front end, we find the outdoorsy things: rakes, brooms, shovels, the garbage bins, and the ever-ready bag of rock salt for winter. Cabinets on this side of the garage are housing things like holiday decorations, things for the car, and with all the extra storage we’ve created, they can even clear out some of the storage from inside the house. Imagine that: you can even use your Complete Garage to allow you to reclaim space inside your house! Request an in-home consultation to get started on your complete garage today!
And look! We’ve shot a short video as a walk-through of this finished project, highlighting the various features and benefits of RedLine garagegear, StoreWALL, and even the flooring. We’ve posted it on our You Tube channel, but you can watch it right here by clicking on the video frame below.
