What is the Best Material for Your Garage Cabinets? Here’s 3 Types to Choose From

Black Aluminum Garage Storage Cabinets for Storage

How you set your garage up is essential to the day-to-day organization and use. If your garage doubles as a workshop, keeping all your tools and equipment in cabinets helps reduce the clutter. But what type should you use?

When it comes to garage cabinets, there are many options for materials. But some materials are not built to last, so any investment you put into those cabinets leads to re-investing and replacing after a few years. Let’s look at the different types of materials for storage cabinets.

Materials Used for Garage Storage Cabinets

1. Wood

Wood cabinets often look great and can be custom designed and painted. However, they break down the easiest of all cabinet types. Wood is not durable and can warp if exposed to water or moisture over time.

2. Metal

Durable and resistant to the elements. Cabinets made in metal are normally either steel or aluminum. Steel will rust and weights more to get the same strength as aluminum so it’s not an ideal option for on-the-go or for moving toolboxes around a garage easily.

Aluminum is the preferred option of metal cabinets because of its lightweight, durable properties. We craft our cabinets from military-grade aluminum. We’ve put them to rigorous tests to ensure they last a lifetime.

3. Plastic

Super cheap and lightweight. Plastic can be great for temporary storage space but not designed to handle long term stresses of use. It breaks easily and is flimsy. Even the hard plastic can break without warning.

Why Choose Aluminum Cabinets Over Other Materials for Garage Storage?

Aluminum offers the best of all worlds in many ways. It does not rust or corrode. It is lightweight yet durable, and it is not too expensive either. We have a series of cabinets that are modular and affordable to fit your garage or workshop space.
