Having a garage is a huge benefit, and when you design it well, it can do a lot more for you than simply keeping your car safe from the elements. If you feel like you may be able to get more out of your garage, it is a good idea to check in with your needs and redesign your garage to better suit the ways you want to use it. Below you will see a few simple design ideas that can make your garage even better.
Paint the Floor
One very simple design idea is to paint the floor of your garage. Painting it can help you to brighten up the space and it can also further protect your garage floor and cover any discoloration. When you paint your garage floor it will also make your garage much easier to keep clean and tidy. Once it is painted, make it a point to wipe it down every once in a while, and it will be much more likely to stay clean and easier to clean when things do get a little messy.
If your garage is simply a big open space, it can be a huge challenge to keep things clean and find what you’re looking for. However, if you add in cabinets and shelving, you can make your job easier and give everything a particular spot to stay when it isn’t in use. Foam cutout tool boxes help keep everything organized and in one place. You can also use things like peg boards to have additional organization strategies in your space. The more you think about organization in your design, the easier it will be to maintain your garage.
Add in a Mudroom Space
If you generally use your garage as the main way you enter your house, it can help to have a little mudroom space inside. Adding in a bench and some hooks, and even a place for shoes can make things a lot easier and help you to prevent dirt and debris from getting from your garage into your home. It doesn’t need to be anything huge but adding a small mudroom area will help you a lot.
No matter how you use your garage, it is always nice to have a clean and organized area. Having a little brightness can help quite a bit as well. As you start your redesign, don’t forget to think about your priorities and how to best make sure they are taken care of.
