Garage Tidy Up Ideas ?

Looking for some advice on my garage layout and any ideas on getting it looking a bit more neat and tidy. Its not to bad at the moment and i have things laid out as best i can. I have taken a few photos bear in mind i have a lot of stuff to dump mostly everything on the top shelves. so it will just be the shelving racks that are left which are the issue, As you can see the space is relatively clutter free but the back wall just lets it down and makes the place look a mess.

Im not wanting to shell out big bucks for new cabinets but I'm wondering if it would be possible to fit wooden or plastic doors onto the shelving units ?

Any help much appreciated !






Sorry for the crap photos, for some reason it wouldn't let me upload the full size photos so i have to screen shot them.

I would look into adding a stud framework directly in front of the units then attaching doors to that. The impression being a full height, full width run of units.

Ask friends family neighbours or look on ebay or gum tree for kitchen units always someone somewhere getting rid of one, if you dont like look of it just paint it like i did, also i made a wall shelf to put all stuff i use regular on next to garage door so you can use it and put it striaght back and when i am finished cleaning i just close garage door no messing about

Id get a number of free standing shelve units and then have plastic boxes with all your stuff in. It will be much better storage and look alot more organised.

Mythbusters way of storage. Cheap 55ltr containers with professional stickers on the front to tell you what's inside. Do a theme style.

Thanks guys, yeah garage is a fair size which i think adds to the issue of it looking untidy as you can get away with having a lot of clutter and still plenty room to work.... having a good look at the photos Im now thinking its the mess around the shelves thats the main issue mainly the pile of crap on the left ! So thats where i will start, i think if i get that cleared up aswell as the top level shelves it will make a big difference, then move onto fitting some kind of doors to the shelves. Im thinking of fitting metal or wood doors just basic and enough to cover up the clutter inside, make them more like cabinets/toolbox and may paint them gloss red or silver etc.

Just thinking Im worrying about getting my garage looking tip top while i don't even have a car to work on at the moment ! Must be mad, Oh well at least it will be a nice place to work when i finally find one ! on that not anyone selling a nice BMW E91 !

Also tried improving the photos a little but still not the best...
