Garage Cabinets and Storage Atlanta

1 – Calculate Your Budget For Buying Garage Cabinets

Having a budget you are comfortable with will help guide your decision on what quality and style garage cabinets to purchase. It may be tempting to opt for the cheaper, ‘off-the-shelf’ option, but beware of the quality of these garage storage solutions, as they are typically made from plastic or inferior quality of steel to make that cheap price attainable. This makes replacing your garage cabinet system every few years a real possibility. Increasing your budget will allow you the option for a wider range of higher-quality building materials, cosmetic and customizable options.

2 – How Do You Plan To Use Your Storage?

The functionality of your new garage cabinets will play a huge factor in deciding what storage system to purchase. Certain items can be stored in specific ways to maximize the efficiency of your space. You’ll want a design that matches your needs.

The weight of the items you are storing will also need to be considered. Plastic cabinets are not suited to hold heavy power tools and auto equipment. If that’s what you plan to store, then consider steel cabinets. With that said, you may not need 18-gauge steel if you only plan to store lightweight items. Knowing which items you want to organize will help our team deliver better results for you.

– Consider a Locking Cabinet System

You may want to choose a cabinet system that has locking doors and drawers if:

  • you want to store chemicals and hazardous materials safely
  • you want to store dangerous tools safely
  •  you want added peace of mind
