What do you intend to do in there is the key to how it is laid out.

Is it primarily for a car?

I would put up some narrow shelving by the door for cleaning gear and install a tap at the front so washing the cars in the driveway is simple and fast.

Shelving/cupboards at high level around the walls are a great way to save the cluttered looked.

You will find some of the best ideas in the world on the forum in the following link.

Great posts everyone!

Nice shelves there @richie_mck

Cheers for the pointers @PeteMoore ive no welding equipment but will def arrange washing/cleaning stuff in a suitable spot.

my issue with looking online at garages was there is so little i could find relating to small garages like mine.

off for a read at that link you posted Pete.

Great threads for sure.

anyone high level shelving solutions?

im thinking that with floor space at a premium i may stick alot of stuff as high as possible.

Speak to a kitchen fitters and arrange to be at the next house they dung out and lift what they remove.

Alternatively get down to IKEA. The bargain corner normally has cupboard doors and stuff sitting in bulk. Make the frames from wood or steel and hang them then attach the doors.

Makes for an affordable solution.

No garage yet myself, but think before you post a picture of your own. Make sure your not advertising to theives etc, they do browse these forums.

If you've got anything valuable, don't post it. Paticularly if anyone knows where the garage is.

sounds sensible, everyone please be sensible and dont get yourself robbed.

Can we change the topic title, i'm afraid @Alan_B will see and want to show us his tool.
title changed, may help with the above aswell, thousands of pounds worth of tools is not something i really will ever have or need to have so really looking ideas for making use of the space in a garage.

Painted white, spot lights fitted in roof. Fully done in office spec carpet tiles. Two radiators fitted and dehumidifier, smoke alarms and house alarm fitted into garage. And very shortly triple glazed.
There's worse condition houses than that. May as well just be parking it in the living room.
