Garage represents automobile repair shop where various types of vehicles are serviced and repaired. Garage sometimes also refers to parking and storage place for vehicles. A residential garage is a part of a home or an associated building designed for storing vehicles.
It is a place of house reserved mostly for car parking, but can be used for as an extra storage place. The main purpose is to keep car safe. It keeps the car cool in the summer and warm in the winter. It must be kept well organized which can be achieved by placing items accordingly in shelves and cabinets attached to the interior walls of the garage. Bicycles, tools, lawn mowers and large appliances are usually placed in the garage. Traditionally garage doors were wooden which used to open either as two leaves or sliding horizontally.

Bikes can be hung from the ceiling and many heavy tools can be hung on the wall with hooks. Shelves are also a good way to keep smaller objects in. Wood, Steel and Aluminum cabinets are some of the options to consider for having strong shelves. Overhead garage storage also provides maximum amount of space and keeps well organized. Seasonal items should be placed in higher cabinets or in shelves designed for ceiling.
