If your garage is a dingy, cramped space for parking your car and stashing the lawnmower, you should consider remodeling it. Cleaned up and organized, your garage can extend your living space, make your life easier, and even add value to your home. Imagine what you can do in your garage with a few changes like the following!
Remodeling your garage can involve minor cosmetic changes or major renovation. Leaking or puddling water, sagging or bowed walls, or damage along the roofline all indicate a need for major repairs. Restoring your garage to its original integrity will add value to your property.
Less extensive remodeling will also add value. Resurfacing the garage floor, replacing or painting drywall, or adding heating or air conditioning will transform your garage into attractive, livable space. Some people will turn their garage into a family room, bedroom, or office by replacing the door with a fourth wall.
If your garage is a cluttered mess, rest assured that remodeling your garage can add and improve storage space and organization. Decluttering can make space for large items like lawn equipment. Adding shelves, cabinets, and bins can help you organize smaller items. You can use several strategies to store tools so they are easily accessible and safe from damage or loss. Tool boxes or drawer units come in a variety of sizes and shapes for both hand tools and power tools. Foam cutout tool boxes help keep everything in your garage organized. They protect tools from rolling around and banging into one another.
A garage remodel can make room for storing hobby supplies or provide space for arts or crafts. You may be able to install a workbench or small work table along the end or in a corner. You can add more room by extending the length of your garage while you are remodeling. If you need a larger space, you might want to use the entire garage. You can easily create a home gym, art studio, or woodworking shop. You will want to install additional lighting and install an HVAC unit.
Your garage can become an integral part of your home after you’ve remodeled, organized, and made some changes for comfort and practicality. Depending on your needs and your budget, you can make a remodeling plan that creates a garage that improves your life and your property.
