Your garage is as much a part of your house as other rooms are. If you have one, you should definitely try to do some reorganizing, designing and decorating so that it looks as good as your other rooms.
It should not be a room that’s limited to parking. It can serve so much more purpose than that. If it is spacious, it can hold a lot of items such as for storage, home gym equipment, tools and much more. If it is small, don’t worry, you can do a lot to make it more storage friendly. Having it look good is a nice plus as it can add value to your house.
A good garage is much more than a place to park your car. If it is properly designed, it should make backing in and going out very easy. If you are a diyer, a garage can be one of the most satisfying rooms to design, organize and decorate.
Here are some things that you can do to make your garage more functional and more elegant.
Lighting is very important. Your garage should be well-lit because oftentimes, this is where you will be working on your car if it needs maintenance or if something breaks that you can easily take care of. Bad lighting will make things harder than it has to be.
Your light sources could be from well placed windows where sunlight can enter or if you don’t want too much windows as it can be easily broken into, you can place different light sources in different areas of the room. The most important thing about lighting is eliminating shadows as it can be a nuisance when doing work on your car.
Installing cabinets or shelves where you can store all your tools in an organized manner is recommended. Since it’s not on the ground, you will be able to save space and make your garage more efficient. When working on your car or bike or pretty much anything out of your garage, having an organized tool storage will save you a lot of time and headache as you can pretty much get what you need without having to guess where you put it last.
A perforated hardboard or a pegboard is one of the essentials in having a well organized garage. Having one will make your life easier so it is recommended that you get one if you are serious in reorganizing your garage.
Storage for other stuff
If you have a spacious garage, it should double as a storage room if you want to have a clutter free house. However, just because all your unused stuff is in the garage, it should be disorganized. You can definitely make it look better by installing different types of storage materials such as chests, cabinets and more.
