There’s a strange trend happening and it has to do with your garage. More people than ever are storing everything inside except their car! This puts your car at risk for vandalism and damage from the elements. If you miss using your garage, here are four ways to make it more user-friendly.
1. Get Rid of the Junk
If you’re honest, the reason you’re not using the garage is that it’s full of junk and organizing isn’t the solution. Clutter needs to go, once and for all. Take a weekend and empty your garage and decide what can be tossed, donated and what stays. Put what’s left on hooks, in drawers and out of the way.
2. Upgrade Your Door
If you’re avoiding your garage because the door doesn’t work, it’s time for an upgrade! A new automatic garage will make your life easier and your home more attractive. You can also enhance your door with the latest garage door accessories such as a battery backup or a “smart” door opener.
3. Add an Epoxy Floor
Dust always accumulates inside a garage, but you can avoid this problem by putting down an epoxy floor. Epoxy floors are stain and moisture resistant and they’re a breeze to clean. They’re easy to install and their beautiful shine lasts for years.
4. Utilize Empty Space
What if after cleaning you end up with too much room? This is your chance to make it into something fun! Hang a TV and create a man cave, or add soundproofing and use it for band practice. The sky’s the limit!
If you’re looking for a way to get your garage back, now’s the time to get rid of extra junk and upgrade your garage door. With all this extra space, you just might have room for your car again!
