How to Add a Fresh Lease of Life to Your Stafford Garage
Posted: Sep 17, 2018
The garage in your Stafford home can do much more than keep your vehicles, gardening tools, and sports equipment safe and secure. However, with a little customization, you can transform the garage into your favorite spot in the house – a collector’s place, a man (or woman) cave, a workspace, and much more. Whatever you choose to convert the space into, here are some ideas and tips that can be of great help.
Add designated areas for storage
Most homeowners are used to dumping boxes in their Stafford garage. This results in ever-piling clutter and chances are that you will end up wasting a lot of time searching for a tool or equipment from these boxes, thanks to lack of organization. To steer clear of this mess, invest in garage storage systems and organizers. They not only help you store stuff in an orderly fashion but also enhance the aesthetics of the space. Here are different kinds of storage that can be used in garages.
- Overhead – these racks and shelves attached to the walls or roofs clear up floor space and let you move around more freely.
- Cabinets – the most basic and functional solution, garage cabinets help you store your stuff in designated areas. You can choose from a wide range of sizes, designs, styles, colors, and materials that match your tastes or the design scheme of your Stafford home.
- Adjustable shelves – height and width adjustable storage solutions are extremely useful in garages that have limited space.
Build a workspace area
Those who love tinkering with or working on DIY projects can convert the garage into a workspace that is far from the commotion of your home or neighborhood. Add desks, worktables, drawers, and shelves, or other work surfaces that are necessary to pursue your work interest. Building a workspace into your garage will keep you motivated to continue with your projects while being the envy of friends and neighbors.
Modify the garage door
The door of the garage is an integral part of the home exterior and has an important bearing on the overall appearance of your abode. Accentuate the look and feel of your Stafford home with a customized garage door. Choose designs that blend with the rest of the design scheme or attract attention by creating a stark contrast. There are plenty of materials like wood, steel etc. to build your garage door with. Look also for interesting finishes, wood species, color combinations, and accent features, which lend a unique touch.
Enhance the interiors
The interiors of a garage often receive very little attention, but a little thought and effort can transform it into a stunning space that fetches you praises galore. To do this, add color and personality to your Stafford garage with personalized floor coatings or tiles, unique lighting fixtures, vinyl designs, paintings, and so on.
Garages deserve their share of love. So, use these tips to transform them from dull to beautiful and functional spaces that reflect your tastes and personality.
