The garage is often known as being that space where you dump absolutely everything. It is also the place where you can’t find anything, and it often gets neglected over time. This can cause real problems for your home and it also shuts it off as being an accessible room, as well. This doesn’t have to be the case, and if you want to jazz up your garage, then there are things that you can do to make this happen:
If you have a small garage, then this can make it very hard for you to have a desk or anything else that you need to really harness your creativity. One way for you to get around this would be for you to have a folding desk. This can come out from the wall and when you are finished, it isn’t hard for you to just lift it up and have your space back. This is one of the best things that you can do if you don’t want to move your car, and it also frees up a lot more room should you need to convert the space again for something else.
If you want to store a lot of things at once, like pens, pencils, sharpeners, and more, why not put them into jars? When you have things stored in jars, it doesn’t matter if they get knocked over because there is a lid. On top of this, you can see instantly what items you have in each one. When you have these on an overhanging shelf that is higher up, you can save a ton of desk space and this is ideal if you want to go for the folding desk idea above.
Your Garage Door:
If your garage door is full of grime or if you know that it is not functioning properly then maybe it’s time to consider getting sectional garage doors installed. This is a great way for you to turn your space into a multi-functional room. You could even try and paint the garage door, as well, so that you can easily add some color to the space. If you want to be super creative, add in some artwork. This could be of anything, and if you don’t want to get it ruined in a dusty atmosphere, just opt for canvas. This is ideal because it’s cheap and it can easily be wiped down.
Do you need shelf space but you know that you can’t have a full set installed? One thing that you can do here is have a bookcase. Bookcases are much thinner when compared to shelving units and they are much taller. This is ideal if you actually need space and if you have a lot of items with nowhere to put them. Bookcases can also be fixed to the wall, so that there is absolutely no danger of them falling over.
Turning your garage into an actual room can really increase the value of your home on top of having your own workshop!
