Five Ways to Trick-Out Your Garage


Yes, you can “trick out” your garage, but it’s not what you think. When you decide to finally clean up the mess in your garage and get organized, it’s a good idea to call in the professionals. It’s difficult to imagine exactly how much you can fit into your garage, but an expert designer will understand which storage cabinets you need to really maximize your garage storage. At Motor Trend Garage, our designers present many options to our clients and once they discover the things they want, they find what they can’t live without.

Here are five great garage organization ideas guaranteed to ‘trick out” your garage:


1 – Power Reel

If you do any work in your garage such as work on a car or build anything, a Power Reel is incredible. It attaches to the ceiling and plugs into the outlet for the garage door. It is a 50’ extension cord that is automatically plugged in and never gets tangled. Get the one with the light on the end so you can see what you are doing.


2 – Car Vacuum

At first, clients are a little unsure about this, but these vacuums get used so many times. It is perfect for cleaning out the inside of any car. It can be used in the garage or can reach a car in the driveway. There are different attachments that all have places to be stored. Your friends may even stop by to use it once or twice.

Like the car vacuum, clients aren’t always excited about a slatwall, but this is probably one of our client’s favorite features. You can store all of your big tools on the wall, so they are off the floor and out of the way. And, there are different hooks you can get to hold bikes, golf bags, large yard tools, sporting equipment and other things.


4 – Parking Stop

When you park in an organized garage it is important for to know where to stop so that you are far enough into the garage to shut the garage door, but far enough away from the workbench so the tools are still accessible. Thanks to a parking stop, you park perfectly every time.

People spill stuff, it happens. But, thanks to the awesome new floor and garage cabinets that sit off the floor, you can rinse out your garage without leaving a stain, so it always looks brand new.


There are so many other things you can choose from, too. Motor Trend Garage has solutions for anything you want to store in your garage. Don’t forget to add a little bling to your garage. You will be really happy that you did.
