When homeowners decide to upgrade their home, they often think only of the areas they use most often. They may upgrade the kitchen, their bedroom, or a bathroom. Many do not think about the fact that they spend some time in their garages just about every day. There are many ways to make significant improvements to your garage. Read on to learn about five unique ideas that can help you get the most from yours.
- Upgrade your flooring
- Add storage in the ceiling
- Replace your garage door
- Bring your garage door up to date
- Turn your garage into the pub of your dreams
Most garages have a concrete floor. That flooring is often not washed, sealed, or replaced. Over the years, it can become stained, dirty, and downright unpleasant to look at. It is more affordable than many people realize to upgrade flooring. If you do not have many cracks or significant malformations, you can likely simply seal the floor with an epoxy. This ensures that future messes are easy to clean up and epoxy looks incredible on its own as well.
It is true that garage’s primary purpose are to hold cars but most homeowners will also use them as storage spaces. You’ve likely seen all the organization options for the area around your car but do not forget that you have a whole other surface you may not have thought of: Your ceiling. Creating an overhead storage method can be done over a weekend, just make sure that you allow plenty of room for the garage door to open and close safely.
While the other tips focus on ways you can improve the interior of your garage, do not forget the exterior. When a person drives up to your home, it is likely that your garage and custom gate are the first things they see. By replacing your generic garage door and gate with a unique custom option, you can be greatly increasing the curb appeal of your home.
There are technological solutions for problems we didn’t even know we had – including technology that can help you open your garage door right from your phone. You can even open it when you’re not at home, which for some is a great way to offer secure access to friends or loved ones when you’re not home.
If you’re willing to give up the space in your garage altogether, why not add a bar, a pool table, a dart board, and whatever else you need to turn it into the pub of your dreams. Have your friends over, sit back and relax, and enjoy the space your garage offers. This is an especially popular choice for parents who want a place to relax without worrying about waking up the kids.
