The usual uses of our garage include: carport, storage room, laundry area and/or work shop. You may then have the notion that, “It’s dirty there, it almost looks like a dump!” You should not have those thoughts. The garage is so functional, how can you not appreciate it?
But as with all things, you can work around it to make it a cool place to even stay and hang out in. You have your dream car(s); you most certainly have your dream garage, right? It is never too early or too late to realize your dream through these means!
Fix and arrange your stuff
Look inside your existing garage. Is it clean or messy? If it is clean, then that is good for you. But if it is the latter, then you are going to have to do some more work. Start this project by organizing all your clutter. Divide and separate your things into those you still need, those you can sell or give away, and those you can throw out permanently. Through this, you are able to tidy and clear the space in your garage that you can then allot for other items.
Think about your desired layout
Here comes the exciting part! But first, consider your garage area. Draw up a plan on what design you want to emulate. You can experiment! Take, for example, you want to go for a concept of racing. Or perhaps, you want a minimal, black and white look. Go and do it! It is your garage after all. Also take in consideration the positioning of your car(s) as it relates to your other stuff. You can set the tool storage near your automobile or you can put your boxes of old items by the back. Be wise in the placement so that you can maximize the function of your garage area.
Launch your project
With the uncluttered space and plan in hand, you are now ready to set on your journey to a cool garage! To begin with, check the condition of your floor. Good quality flooring is sufficient enough to withstand temperatures of both hot and cold, plus it should be able to survive the harsh fluids that can come out of your cars. The AxleTile company is one you can trust as they offer topnotch garage floor tiles that cater to your needs. There are tiles of different styles and colors available too that will fit your preferred concept. When painting your garage walls, be sure to choose dark and washable paints so that when it becomes dirty, it is easier to clean and maintain. A great use of space is to buy ready to assemble storage cabinets. They are offered in hardware stores anywhere. Customized ones can be made too.
If your garage is quite big, you can incorporate a sweet little sitting area as well, where you can drink your coffee and read the paper every morning. That would be nice, right?
Bottom line, envision your style of cool and apply it. Just keep in mind that this will be an investment of much time and money. Good luck!
