We decided to do our own custom shelving to maximize the space, and because we knew it would withstand the loading of what we wanted to store on the shelves. Shelf spacing was determined with plastic bins (2 bins high on the lower levels, 1 bin high on the upper levels). Black baseboards were also installed, and the door frame was re-finished in black to match the trim in the hallway.
Along the shorter wall by the door we decided to put up a hanging bar and shelf to store all of our motorcycle leathers and gear.
New lighting and vent installed in the ceiling:
For the deep "V" where the two walls meet, we decided to use that space for storing tall, skinny items like kayak paddles and camp chairs.
Once we started moving gear into this room, we changed the name to the Adventure Storage Room, because all of the gear moving in is for kayaking, camping, and motorcycle riding.
Shelving with more gear added. The inflatable kayak now lives on the bottom. No more dragging it upstairs!
Storage bins starting to be added, with room for more.
All of the moto gear:
