Garage Cabinets

Recommendations on good garage cabinets? I have a pair of metal ones that are rusting away. Not ideal for my detailing towels and such.

Thx!

I did my whole garage with Garage Living (www.garageliving.com). I find their cabinets excellent - they're mounted to the wall (so easy to clean under them as there's no legs) the doors are double-skinned so don't wobble when opening or closing - I've been really happy with them.

They did the floors, and the wall covering/ hanging system, and the overhead storage too.

Do you have a budget in mind? Newage cabinets (can be found via costco.com) are a great bang for the buck for many configurations. Otherwise Saber or Sonic cabinets (via obsessedgarage.com) but a bit more pricey.

Thx for the responses, but I don't need anything fancy. They're both very nice.

Here's what I currently have. A couple cabinets and I'm good. Just need something that won't rust in humid temps.

I bought some cabinets from home depot or lowes about 9 years ago when I moved into this house. They are still doing fine.

Recycled kitchen cabinets, just mount them up off of the floor. Check your local Habitat For Humanity Re-Store, if you have one around.

This can bring some real heartache, if you aren't VERY careful in selecting and mounting them - kitchen cabs are seldom designed to hold the weight of car tools/parts and will collapse unexpectedly, even if you bolted them to the wall like crazy. It looks tempting to just grab a set of pre-fab cabinets, but far better in the long run to buy something specific.

That's what I've got. These were sitting at the curb, free for the taking. A coat of paint latter, they've served well. Fragile?...a cupboard stacked with plates or a drawer filled with silverware pretty much equals the weight these cabinets support. Heck, while the countertop and sink were not used, they could have been...but I wanted to have the lower cabinets to be the base for the work bench.

Are cabinets required? Can you build shelving units with plywood and 2x4s?

Yep - thank you! It's been a life long dream, and I just bought a second one - identical, but this one is RHD and will be kept in Europe for now.
