Benefits of Overhead Storage

Benefits of Overhead Storage - Perfect Fit Garages - Custom Cabinets Calgary

Many people utilize their garages primarily for the purpose of storing excess items and possessions that might not necessarily have a place elsewhere in their home. Skis, bicycles, golf clubs, and many other recreational items find their home in most people’s garages.

However, if you also need to park your car in the garage, or utilize it for hosting guests in the summer months, your garage can quickly become cluttered and space for cars and activities can easily become scarce.

There are a variety of ways to create more living or recreational space in your garage, but one of the most effective ways is to utilize overhead storage to get certain items off the garage floor and out of the way.

Here are a few of the benefits that come with setting up overhead storage solutions in your garage:

Freeing Up Space

As mentioned above, space often comes at a premium in many people’s garages. Unorganized garage storage can leave you with no option than having to leave your vehicle’s outside during the harsh winter months. This is not only dangerous to the health of your vehicle but it also causes you to deal with getting into a freezing car just to get to work in the morning.

If having indoor parking isn’t necessarily your priority, overhead storage can also help you clear up space for hobbies, a home business, a pet area, or the possibility of hosting parties. In addition, overhead storage can also help you free up additional storage space if you need to alleviate clutter in other areas of your home.


If you have children, your garage can be one of the most dangerous areas in your home. Garages tend to be where we store power tools and toxic weed killing solutions. If you create overhead storage space in your garage, it will allow you to store dangerous items out of harm’s reach.

Garage clutter can pose an increased fire hazard in your home and, thus, creating overhead storage space can help you reduce that risk. In addition, reducing clutter in your garage will help you avoid being the victim of one of the thousands of garage accidents that take place in the United States every year.


Many people make the mistake of investing in outside storage fees before considering how they might create additional storage space in your home. Don’t purchase a costly storage locker until you’ve thoroughly evaluated how you can maximize storage in the space you have within your home.

Quick and Easy Installation

Perhaps most importantly, overhead storage is relative cheap and time-efficient to install. Most authorized racks only require about an hour to install properly. It can take even less time to effectively install ceiling hooks to hang bikes or other items up and out of the way.
