You can get garage cabinets that look really nice or ones that look just okay. If you really care about the looks of your garage go for the nice looking cabinets. You will pay more for the looks. There are cabinets that are made of plastic and units that are made of wood. Plastic does not need to be painted. Wood may look nicer but will require more up keep.
It is always advisable to build the garage cabinet organizer at least a few inches above the floor. This ensures that it does not get spoiled by the water leaking from garden pipe or other sources. Doing this will make it easier to clean the garage too. The plastic and metal garage cabinet organizers are mostly available off the shelf in home centers. Most of them come with heavy duty wheels, so that they can be moved anywhere you want to shift them to. While selecting any cabinet for your garage, remember to go for a design and material that can take on rough handling and last long even in extreme weather conditions.
You can mount garage cabinet on the wall or it can sit on the floor. The wall mounting is probably what you would prefer. It is up off the floor giving you more space. Setting cabinets on the floor exposes them to moisture. This is a real problem if your cabinets are made from wood. Wall mount cabinets also keep the contents of the unit out of reach to most little critters like mice.
The garage is often one of most neglected spaces of our home. The garage space is occupied with a wide variety of smaller tools like wrenches, spanners, jacks as well as larger equipment such as lawn mowers, weed eaters, leaf blowers, and snow blowers. Of course we also tend to store the not-so fragrant fertilizers and pesticides out there as well.
"Flexibility and how well the storage solutions work" means simply "can the garage cabinets be configured so most people will find them useful?" If your cabinets are perfect for your woodworking hobby -- a workbench, places for lumber, pegboards for tools and the like -- how will someone with lots of gardening tools or painting materials value your garage? Make sure your investment in garage cabinets can be used by a broad range of other people. Otherwise the garage you view as an asset might be worthless, or even a liability, when it comes time to sell your property.
However, this durability of cabinets made from regular wood pales in front of the durability offered by metal cabinets. When compared to metal cabinets, wooden cabinets are usually cheaper. But this is because wood needs to be maintained. Water, termites, and even chipping due to regular usage can easily damage these cabinets. The next option is the garage cabinet made of plywood. Plywood cabinets offer two advantages; they are cheaper than both metal and wooden cabinets made from regular wood, and they look elegant just like the wooden cabinet. But this affordability and aesthetic appeal comes at a price.
