It’s Time to Rethink the Garage
Did you know that people are using their garage to meet all kinds of needs and wants? Hobby Rooms, Flex Space, Workshops, Collectible Car Storage, Media Rooms, Office Space, Art Studios, Gyms, Guest Suites and even parking the family car!
Custom Garage Remodeling
Custom Garage Remodeling is becoming the fastest growing segment in the home remodeling industry. Why? People’s lives are becoming cluttered with stuff and it usually ends up being piled – Where? – That is right! In the garage! In recent years we have seen the real estate market take quite a hit. This has resulted in families staying put and upgrading the home they have. In the past, kitchens and bathrooms led the charge in home remodeling. However, today we are seeing a trend develop where people are considering the vast possibilities that their garage space has to offer.
If you simply need space to park your car, store collectibles, or organize the vast array of stuff you have collected over the years here is a list of basic DIY things to consider:
There are a lot of options when it comes to garage flooring. The purpose of the floor will determine which product to use. Whether it is epoxy paint, a rubber mat or interlocking tiles, my theory is, if you are proud of your floor then you will keep it clean. Not to mention it makes the room look spectacular!
Cabinets and Shelving
When it comes to organization there is no better tool than shelving to control clutter. Cabinets do a great job of storing things you prefer not to be on display or lock away possible hazardous items while offering a sleek design element to the garage.
Wall Organization Systems
Walls are very valuable storage space and are often overlooked as storage possibilities. Slatwall and accessories such as hooks, racks and bins offer a great way to get items up off the floor and stored neatly. This makes your stuff easy to access when needed.
Never underestimate the use of overhead storage for those larger items you seldom need access to such as tarps, fishing poles and beach umbrellas or even perhaps hurricane shutters. The above referenced materials can be found at your local Lowes or Home Depot.
The Final Frontier
The garage offers so much more than we give them credit for. The Garage is the final frontier in home remodeling and by far the most necessary.
