There are many options when it comes to garage storage and if you are looking for garage cabinets, then plastic cabinets are definitely an option if you are looking to save money but still have a nice look to your garage space. With the lower price point however, comes some problems that you will not find in say metal garage cabinets. When you look at the pros and cons of plastic garage cabinets, you will be able to see if they do not offer some things that you may be looking for in a storage solution, or if the price is low enough that you are willing to settle for what they offer.
On the flip side, there are several disadvantages to owning plastic garage containers that may make you want to consider some other alternatives: 1. Weight Load - plastic cabinets are not going to be able to carry as much weight as steel cabinets do. Overtime, if you load down the cabinets with heavy items, the plastic shelves will become warped. 2. Doors - as time goes on, plastic cabinets with locks or latches become harder to close and eventually will warp. One of the benefits of going with garage cabinets over garage shelves is the ability to lock up things out of reach from the children. If a latch or lock is going to stop working over time, you lose out on one of the key benefits of the storage. 3. Durability - over time, plastic can become broken or damaged. There is a chance after several years you may be looking to replace them if you do not treat them properly when taking items out or putting things away. 4. Stains - while plastic shelves are easy to clean, if there is a chemical spill, depending on the type of liquid, it can stain the cabinets, thus ruining the color and the appearance.
So, organizing your garage could seem to be a daunting task but it is worth the work and planning. There are various companies offering solutions to actually make your ride feel good being in the garage. Today, varieties of comprehensive solutions are available to clear the clutter and they are taking garage storage options to a totally new level.
So do not think of your installation of garage cabinets as an expense. Think of it as an investment. The estimates that a good garage space can add $5,000 to $10,000 onto the resale value of the house. Not only will you be able to enjoy using your garage more, but you will be able to recoup most or all of the money spent on the garage storage solutions. And do not forget to USE the cabinets to "de-clutter" the garage and the house when it comes time to sell your home. As your listing agent will point out, "If a buyer sees your stuff scattered around, they will assume the house is not large enough to hold the buyer`s stuff either."
In these garage storage cabinets, you can select the material to be used according to the usage of the unit. For heavy things, a tough particle board is required. You can also select the final finish, color and texture that go well with your garage`s paint and other accessories. The companies which provide services for custom garage cabinets provide free C.A.D. designing and estimate service, as well. Thus you can get things done within your budget and according to your requirement. Even after installation, maintenance service is provided and most of these are covered by a few years of warranty.
It is critical to get the planning part done first, because it will greatly impact the price you pay for garage cabinets. Research shows that almost one half of your budget for cabinets will go toward the larger cabinets, so you want to make sure you have a well thought out plan so all of your large items will fit in the cabinets that you buy and also that the larger items are worth storing. Not every large item needs to be put in a cabinet, some items might be able to be placed closer to the ceiling if you get an overhead storage unit.
