11 Feb Top Ways to Upgrade Just About Any Garage
Although there are many ways to upgrade your garage; some ways are definitely better than others – especially if it’s not a neglected space, and you use it for more than just parking your cars.
Extra Ceiling Space
Make your garage more of a fully three-dimensional storage space by installing ledges on the ceiling that can hold storage boxes. The ledges look like I-beams, and can hold more room than you would’ve thought possible; this really declutters a house when done correctly.
Erect a Do It Yourself Work Bench on the Wall
This can be embedded right in the wall, so that you never need search for your tools again, more or less. This idea of making use of the preexisting wall can be extended to a place for all of your garden tools, as well. You’ve got at least three walls to work with, after all. Turn one entire wall into a storage space by nailing ledges to it.
Turn It Into an Extra Work Room
If you don’t need to park your vehicles in the garage, then it’s large enough to convert into an ample-sized office. Put in carpeting and build desks and cabinets into the wall. Just in case you already have an adequate office in the main house, then your garage can make a very nice home gym.
Change the Lights
Most garages have fluorescent lighting; but if you are upgrading it into an office or work room, then you should replace these with LEDs. they last a lot longer and are more efficient; plus, the right colors simulate natural light much better.
These are some of the top upgrades you’ll find in most garages; there are others, but they depend on specific uses you might have for in your particular case.
