The garage is probably one of the most used and at the same time, most neglected space in your home. Whenever you find things you don’t know where to put, you decide to keep it in your garage, as if it is a second storage room in your house. To put it frankly, you need to renovate the space and put things in order. You might be fairly surprised to find how spacious and organized the room would look afterwards.
A bright Shade: Do not neglect the walls of the garage because it acts as the backdrop to all the articles you want to put on the wall. The first step is to have a clean-up or a sort-out of your garage.
- Find out the things that you do not need anymore and either donate them or throw them away. There is no good reason to keep exercise equipment that you bought years ago but never really used.
- Now that you have sorted out the things you are supposed to keep in your garage, move them once more to a safe place.
- Check if there are cracks on the wall and take proper steps accordingly.
- After ensuring that the walls are in good condition, you may choose a neutral color for the walls. Get your paint and brush ready and start your little project.
The Floor: If you take a good look at your garage floor, you are sure to discover that it has been a wreck for a while. After removing all the items, scrub and wash the floor thoroughly to look for cracks.
- Do not be alarmed as it is quite common for the garage floor to have cracks here and there. Call in experts who know how to treat concrete flooring and ask for their opinion. Fill in the cracks and leave the floor as it is for one whole day.
- Use epoxy for concrete flooring for repairing the floor. The concrete sealers help prevent further damage to the floor and add a shine to it.
- If you have enough epoxy left after applying it to the garage floor, use it on other parts of the house such as the concrete pathway in your garden, the driveway, etc.
Lighting: A garage space, if well lit, will definitely look way bigger than compared to a dingy one. Hire an electrician and work the space to your benefit.
- Research about different types of LED lights to know about your desired lighting.
- If you have enough vertical space, build a false ceiling that may help distribute the light evenly in all parts of the garage.
Shelves and Hooks: Set up a space that is dedicated to holding your garden tools and other instruments.
- Install multiple wooden shelves with gaps. These shelves will hold the essential that are usually scattered all over the place.
- Add hooks on the wall strategically so that you may hang things without having to cram everything in a tiny closet that takes floor space.
If 2020 has taught everyone one thing, it is that people have the capability to beautify any space. A little effort may go a long way. Invest time and turn your dingy garage into something beautiful.
