Metal Storage Cabinets Offer Superior Durability

 A discussion both of the benefits of owning metal storage cabinets as opposed to wooden cabinets, and of the benefits of stainless steel over the inferior strength of aluminum.

Metal storage cabinets provide the ultimate in tough, sturdy home storage. In terms of materials, the options include aluminum, which you can lay money on to give you decades of rust free service, and stainless steel, which offers superior strength and durability. The latter, while lacking the incredible corrosion-resistance of aluminum, is also guaranteed to last years before rust becomes a real worry. Indeed, such metal storage cabinets, if decorated with an enamel coating, will likely last longer than even naked aluminum could hope to do. While such items may cost you a pretty penny when purchased brand new, you can pick them up used off Craigslist or at foreclosure auctions for a fraction of their retail price.

There are also a great many unit types of cabinet for the discriminating buyer to choose from. Which of the variety of metal storage cabinets you select will depend on the use to which you want to put it. If you’re regularly in the garage (or whatever other general storage area you use), and always seem to find yourself clearing space for use as a potting table or tooling area, then the  ideal unit for you may well be one topped with a flat work surface large enough to accommodate your projects. Alternatively, you can purchase individual pieces designed to serve as so-called ‘rolling islands’, capable of fitting together in a modular fashion to create whatever customized system meets your specific requirements on a given day.  If you do purchase modular units that are going to be moved around a lot, make sure you find units that have been welded, rather than bolted or cinched, as the former provides more reliable long-term strength and stability, being less likely to be claimed by the corrosion to which mechanical joins like bolts are vulnerable.

Before you set out to buy your metal storage cabinets, the first thing you should do is pack up and arrange the items in your garage, so you know what kind of storage space you’re actually going to need. In the event that you wind up with a lot of uniform boxes, then storage shelving is probably going to be ideal for your purposes, allowing you to stow your boxes away with no further ado. If you find that most of the things in your garage are not uniform in size or shape, you’d be best off going for multi-purpose cabinets, or possibly stackable storage bins (which are suitable for less fragile items).

Tall storage cabinets present a great way to clear up a garage clutter with gardening, pool-care or cleaning implements, readily storing items like brooms, spades, rakes, pool-nets and so on while also providing partitioned bins and shelving for smaller items.  Base cabinets, by contrast, are a great and inexpensive alternative for those who, for whatever reason, prefer not to install built-in cabinets. Such cabinets (which often serve as the ‘rolling islands’ described above) tend to have numerous drawers and have either open or enclosed shelves. They are also (typically) lockable, providing a good space for you to store any potentially dangerous or hazardous tools and materials you don’t want your kids getting hold of.

Garage hutches could work as a great adjunct to whatever metal garage storage cabinets you eventually choose. The operating principle of these small units is to allow you to store items conveniently close at hand over your working area. Pegboard hutches offer even more convenience, with multiple hooks you can use to keep your tools hanging in plain sightBusiness Management Articles, making the matter of finding what you need in your garage that much simpler.
