Recently, we posted our favorite
storage shelves for the garage. They’re great—especially when paired with the right boxes and bins—but if you lack the discipline for open shelving, another option is the slender garage storage cabinet. Available in different gauges of steel and wood types, and as wall-mounted or freestanding options, here are our picks. Above: The new Ikea Kolbjörn Shelving Unit with 2 Cabinets has perforated shelving for airflow, a clothes or fabric rail with clips, and shelving; $247 at Ikea. Above: The Edsal Steel Freestanding Garage Cabinet is an open for modular shelving cabinets. It’s made of 18-gauge, type 304 stainless steel so is on the pricer side for $2,024.39 at Lowe’s. Above: The Husky Heavy Duty Welded Steel Garage Cabinet Set in black has 6 pieces and is $1,499.98 at The Home Depot. Above: The Gladiator Premier White Steel Garage Storage System comes with three short lower cabinets (left), three upper cabinets (top) and three large standing cabinets (right); $2,999 at Lowe’s. Above: Ikea’s Pax Wardrobe Storage System is a decent-looking, albeit unconventional solution for garage storage. The Pax system has numerous components, including corner units, to do a DIY combination for the garage; $895 at Ikea. Above: The Monkey Bars Classic Series of storage cabinets comes in a wide variety of sizes and configurations and 14 different cabinet finishes. Contact Monkey Bars for ordering information. Above: We like the simple Uline Stainless Steel Storage Cabinet made of rust-proof 304 stainless steel and heavy-duty shelving; prices start at $1,870 through Uline.
