Get Everything Off the Floor
Make room for your vehicles by getting everything off the floor and onto the wall with elfa. This unique Shelving and Drawer System can handle everything from tools to lawn- and sports equipment. Specialized Hooks hold brooms, hoses, bikes and more. And elfa Shelves and Drawers can quickly and easily be repositioned. You can also use stand-alone shelving to clear your floor of clutter. Metro and InterMetro Shelving are good options as shelves are adjustable and designed to handle heavy loads.
Protect Items from the Elements
We recommend storing like items in Weathertight Totes to protect contents from dust, pests and water. Be sure to label the Totes to make it easy to find what you're looking for. Then stack the Totes on shelves, putting items most frequently accessed on lower shelves.
If you're using InterMetro Shelving, consider covering it with a Stor-Pod Enclosure that allows ventilation and prevents mildew. A zippered opening makes it easy to access what you need.
Create Storage Zones
Make the most of your available space by dividing it into zones for different uses. For example, store all your camping gear in one area and your sports equipment in another. If you do a lot of projects, consider using elfa utility Boards to hold tools, nails, screws, tape and more. Add a virtually indestructible elfa Work Surface with drawers below, and you've got the perfect place to pot a plant or build a bird house. Finally, put items for long-term storage away on upper shelves. Be sure to hang a step ladder nearby for easy access.
