Add Storage Space to Your Garage

Garages have been used for storage since their conception. However, most garages are used ineffectually and are completely unorganized. Learn how to add storage to your cluttered garage with these easy step-by-step projects.

The Walsh family used their garage as a catchall. From bikes to bats, sleds and snowboards, to holiday decorations and yard tools, their garage was such a mess that there was no room to park the family van. Their garage needed organization and it needed it badly. So, DIY to the Rescue stepped in to show this family how to install organizational units to give their garage the order it desperately needed. Learn how organizing the garage can increase your home's value at HGTV's FrontDoor.com.
