Garages come in all shapes and sizes. So it is no coincidence that garage cabinets do too. From simple open shelves to modular garage cabinets to full custom cabinets. Garage Excell has been building and installing custom cabinets, shelving units, and modular garage cabinets in California for the last 13 years and we have picked up a few tips and tricks along the way. Read on to find the best solution for your garage.

Anything is better than a cluttered garage like the photo above. One of the cheapest solutions is a simple shelving unit. Open shelves can be cheap as they can be as simple as 1 piece of wood anchored to the wall. Of course, the more items you want to store on your garage shelves, the more reinforcing you’ll need. As such the cost will rise. 

Garage shelves are a great option if you have a couple of things you want to put out of the way which you don’t mind being on display.

Garage Slatwalls California

Depending on what you want to store, a better option could be garage slat walls. Slatwalls are a garage organization system that is good for giving a home to a few of your garage items. We really like using slatwall for getting bigger sports equipment like skiis, bikes, surfboards etc out of the way. They also work well above a workbench for some small tools.

The below image is a great example of combining garage shelving, slatwall and garage modular cabinets to create a well balance organization system.

Modular Garage Cabinets California

Modular garage cabinets are your next step in both price and functionality. While costing more than shelves, a well-designed modular garage cabinet set can give your friends garage envy as they drive past your well-organized garage.

With garage cabinets you can give everywhere a home and hide it all behind the cabinet doors. Because modular garage cabinets come in various shapes and sizes, they can be customized to your garage and liking.

Below you can see modular cabinets used to create a storage and workbench area with slatwall used on the back wall. On the right, you can see another workbench using a combination of drawers and cabinets as the base

Modular cabinets start at 2ft in width and can be joined to cover entire garage walls or even commercial spaces 30ft and up in size. Your typical cabinets are drawers, base cabinets, wall cabinets, and full-length cabinets. Each has its own purpose and can be combined for a perfect garage organization system.

Custom Garage Cabinets California


When you are looking at custom garage cabinets, expect a heavy price increase for not much-added functionality. The focus on custom garage cabinets is all about the look of the finished product.

Perhaps you want a specific door style and color. If that is the case, a custom cabinet is the way to go to your garage.

Custom work in conjunction with modular cabinets is a great solution to maximize space and create a one-off garage without hurting the wallet.

See the image below with custom uppers above the modular cabinets.

Another common situation is to customize the modular cabinets to be a certain size to match your needs. Thanks to our local manufacturing, this is something we can achieve without breaking the bank.
