The garage may be one of the most neglected areas of a home. If you’re tired of having a dirty, messy and unattractive garage, it’s time to make some improvements. There are numerous ways to add function and style to your garage. The following three suggestions can be applied to any garage, whether you’re on a budget or money is no issue.
Update Garage Door
Your garage door certainly plays a big factor in the overall curb appeal of your home. There are several options to add style to your garage door. First, paint the door. The sky is really the limit when it comes to paint colours. When selecting a colour for your garage door, a neutral colour like faux wood will guarantee you enjoy the finished look for many years. Second, add faux painted hardware and/or windows. This is another great way to make your garage door look decorative. You can find tutorials for how to paint faux hardware online. Finally, replace your current address numbers with a new lettering style for a subtle change.
Add Epoxy Flooring
Between vehicles, chemicals, bikes and more, your garage floor takes a beating. It’s important to protect this area of your home by adding an epoxy concrete floor. An epoxy floor coating is a great way to guard your floor against moisture and other damage. Not only is epoxy covering durable, but it’s also seamless so that you don’t have any loose tiles or peeled and cracked paint. In addition to being functional, epoxy flooring is beautiful. There are different colours and textures to fit any style. One of the best ways to enjoy your garage space is to upgrade the flooring with epoxy coating.
Install Storage Options
Do a quick search on the internet for garage storage options and you’ll be amazed at the thousands of genius ideas. You can start with something simple like hooks for bikes and baskets for balls and toys. If you need some more serious organization for tools, automotive supplies, gardening supplies, etc., consider building shelves or buying a wall storage unit. Grouping items by type and use is a great way to get started organizing. If you have large items that aren’t used frequently, such as tents and coolers, install an overhead rack. Overhead storage is a great way to save floor space.
Making your garage both functional and beautiful is possible by updating your garage door, adding epoxy flooring and installing storage options.
