Garage Ceiling Storage - Organizer's Best Friend

By Michaela Strathman

Telescoping Ceiling StorageWe all have our go-to tricks when it comes to finding extra storage space in the home. Maybe it is as simple as looking at the back of your door, or under the bed. Well it just so happens that one of my favorites also tends be one of the most overlooked. Maybe it is because it is because of its location: the garage.

Closets and shoes are fun to organize, as are bathrooms. Those areas bring instant gratification when organizing the home. But the garage? Not so much. We don't hang out in the garage, and we certainly don't expect it to be a place of calm organization. So why the focus on this boring, dingy space?

The Dreaded Space Behind the Door… And What to Do with it.

By Michaela Strathman

Just when we thought we had every available space in the house expertly utilized, the makers of the Heidi Shelf go and prove us wrong! This patented, unique shelving system by Foremost makes use of what may be the last wasted space in the home: Behind the door. As you might have already noticed, the space behind any door is tapered when the door is open, making it impossible to fit any substantial shelf back there. But the Heidi Behind the Door Shelving System solves this problem by using a tapered design itself (down to 2.5" deep at the corner), allowing it to fit seamlessly behind a door whether it is open or closed. Available in several colors and a junior size for the kids room!

Heidi Behind the Door Shelving System in Black:
