Make the Most Out of Your Garage Space

The unique garages you’ll find in our contemporary and comfortable American West homes (particularly the homes in our Rainbow Crossing Elite community in Coronado Ranch with RV Garages) are as spacious as can be, so you have all the room you need for bike storage, your children’s toys, your personal belongings, your cars, and even an RV!

No matter your lifestyle, the garage you get with your American West home will accompany it perfectly. When you keep this large area organized, you’ll be amazed at how much quality (and convenience) it adds to your gorgeous new home. Take a look at a few of our favorite tips and tricks to use this space to its full potential:

Wall Panel: A garage wall panel (or slatwall) is just about the most functional product out there, but you can also make it colorful and attractive. Draw inspiration from this garage, which utilizes baskets and clear bins to hold small accessories, and a hose/cord holder to keep the hose in tact. For a different vibe, try a peg board!

Tool Holder: If you like to keep your indoor and outdoor spaces clean, you probably have several go-to tools from brooms and mops to rakes and garden tools. With this Berry Ave Broom Holder and Garden Tool Organizer, you can keep everything upright, out of the way, and organized for whenever you need them.

Bike Storage: There’s nothing like the scenery and terrain of Vegas for biking. If you’re a cycling enthusiast, you’ve probably experienced the inconvenience of storing your bike(s) — but hanging your bike upside down from your garage ceiling will free up so much room. This idea is for anyone who loves a fun home project!

Sports Equipment: Do your children love kicking around a soccer ball, shooting hoops, and throwing touchdowns? Of course, all of that sports equipment has to go somewhere, so why not store it neatly in your garage? A vertical ball rack and wire basket like those found in this garage will “change the game.”

All-Purpose Cabinet: From tools to toys, your garage is sure to be filled with stuff, stuff, and more stuff… Fortunately, this Akro-Mils 10144 D 20” by 16” by 6.5” Hardware and Craft Cabinet will keep everything organized and within reach, so you’ll never have to go digging through a pile again.

Get Hooked: With all of the incredible things to do around your American West home, from outdoor recreation to cultural opportunities, you and your family are probably in and out of the door a lot. A freestanding cabinet (whether your own or store-bought) with hooks and drawers ensures that everyone’s outdoor wear is kept neat!

At American West Homes, we decided to give the garage more love than others do. To us, this functional space provides so much more than storage — it’s where you keep many of your most important things, from everyday tools to modes of transportation to the toys that your children love.
