Garages can be dark, messy places if you don’t take the time to make them attractive and bright. Most people want to be able to store extra items and have room to work on projects while also leaving enough space for a couple of vehicles.
If you want to have a garage that looks great and is easy to navigate, you’ll need to do some renovations. You also need to prioritize which projects will give you the greatest benefits. We can give you a rough estimate of what these sorts of projects will cost. However, there are other things to consider when determining how to update your garage.
There are several common problems that people are trying to fix when they organize their garages, and here are the solutions.
Lighting for Dark Spaces
There are a lot of items that people store in their garages, and most houses aren’t automatically built with superb lighting. If your garage has dim lighting, you won’t want to work in it, and you won’t be able to find items that you might be looking for.
There are several types of lighting that can instantly make the space brighter. Some of the best kinds are simple fluorescent tube-light fixtures. The great thing about fluorescent lights in the garage is that they light up no matter how cold it is.
Off-the-Floor Storage for More Space
One of the best ways to make your garage more organized is to invest in shelving that keeps things off the ground. It’s a great way to add space, and it will also protect your property from rodents and water damage. You can make your own shelving, and there’s also pre-made shelving that you can purchase.
Flooring for Masking Unattractive Concrete
You might not realize it, but there are several types of flooring that can make your garage much more attractive. Rollout mats are made of a rubbery material that will greatly improve the look of your flooring. They’re also great because they are slip-resistant, and they protect the concrete underneath from oil and paint stains.
Paint for Unattractive Walls
You might feel like painting the walls of your garage isn’t that important, but it can make you feel more excited to work in the room. Paint the walls a bright color to make yourself feel energized about tackling the next project.
Hanging Storage for Large, Bulky Items
People often have bikes and other items that get in the way during the offseason. Get some hanging storage so that you can store your equipment above parked vehicles when you won’t be using that equipment for a while.
Garages don’t need to be dark, dank places. You deserve a garage that you want to use and keep tidy. Contact us at Advantage Remodel to learn more about our home remodeling services.
