When you’re parking your car outside even though you have a perfectly usable garage, there’s probably more to it. A lot of people don’t have a garage and wish they did, so if you’re avoiding yours, it’s time to take control. Here are several ways to begin getting more use out of your garage.
Ditch the Junk
People get into the routine of using their garage to store junk. If clutter is taking up valuable real estate in your house, it needs to go. Take a few days and be brutally honest with yourself about your excess stuff. Then, decide what you can toss, donate or keep.
Update Your Garage Door
If you’re avoiding the garage because your door is broken, don’t hold off on repairing or replacing it. You can also install some of the latest garage door accessories such as a remote door opener and monitoring system. A working garage door looks great and makes your life much easier.
Take Advantage of Extra Space
If you’re lucky enough to have more space than needed, don’t waste it! Build an art studio or a craft center. You could also design a workshop or hang a TV for game nights. The sky’s the limit to what you could use all this room for.
Install a New Floor
When your garage is dirty and dusty, you’re less likely to spend any time there. You can solve this problem by putting in an epoxy floor. Epoxy floors resist stains and moisture and clean up in a snap. They’re easy to install and will let you utilize more of your garage space.
If you’d love to get more use out of your garage, now’s the time to do some cleaning and updating your door accessories. You might be amazed that you finally have room for your car!
