Garage renovation ideas
If you do it properly, a garage renovation can transform one of the most unappreciated spaces in a home into one of the best. From dark and dingy to usable and welcoming, you can create a new area in your home that you love to be in! Take a look at these garage design ideas to find out more.
Organised Storage Garage Design Ideas
Often, the storage in a garage consists of a whole lot of cardboard boxes. Not only is this a totally ineffective way of storing things (how are you meant to get out those tools that are right at the bottom of a box which also happens to be right at the bottom of a heap of boxes?) but it’s also an eyesore.
Treat storage in your garage as you would in your home. Invest in cabinets, shelves, drawers and all that good stuff. Not only will it make it easier to find what you’re looking for, it also creates a much nicer-looking environment.
Upgrade Your Flooring
If you want a drab, dull looking garage, stick to plain old cement. But, if you want somewhere inviting (and less hard on your feet and legs), why not try something different? Even just applying a finish or some paint to your concrete can bring a bit more life to it, or you could go for some heavy-duty vinyl in different colours and patterns.
When it comes to garage renovation ideas, we think adding some natural light is a must. If you’re going to be working in your garage all day, it can get pretty claustrophobic and dreary when there are no windows! Adding skylights is a great way to open up your garage space, allowing plenty of light whilst still keeping your privacy.
Racks and Rails
A great way to help neaten up your garage, make your appliances accessible and clear more floor-space for your tasks is to install racks and rails along the lengths of your walls. In a simple stainless steel or chrome finish, these both look chic and are very practical. Use them with hooks to hang tools from and add spaces to hang bikes up.
Think About Space
When thinking of garage design ideas, don’t forget that you need to be maximising your space. Think about space-saving storage solutions such as those racks and rails, and don’t fill your garage with unnecessary clutter. Keep things simple and space-conscious for a better place to work.
