elfa® Garage Makeover & Craft Studio

Heidi and David have been on a big organisational journey. Together with Howards Organisational Expert, Cathy Player, they recognised that this was not just a one-room makeover. There was indeed a knock-on effect that started with the office, spilled over into the garage and into Heidi’s work studio. Once the office was made over with elfa it was time to remedy the garage, which would then create a free space for Heidi’s work studio. And so the transformation began…

The elfa® Garage Makeover

elfa® garage is seriously hardwearing. Built to hold heavy-duty garage items, we used the following components to maximise their garage storage space, enable a clear and easy path to high access items and to create a home for garage tools/gardening items.

The Craft Studio Makeover

This space was two-fold. One wall was allocated to a custom elfa Garage Storage solution; while the rest of the space was created using a combination of elfa and Howards accessories.

The elfa Garage Storage Wall

The top track is the only component of the elfa system that is attached to the wall. To that you hang the hang standards, attached brackets and then shelved. Heidi & David then arranged to have doors hung in front of the shelving unit to box it in.
