Give Your Garage a Gorgeous Makeover

Who says that a garage has to be purely practical? It might be a functional space, where you store your car or various other items, but it can still look good. For many people, their garage is a plain space, where they wouldn't think much about decorating. If you spend a lot of time in there though, there's no reason it can't be stylish, instead of just a bleak and boring room. You don't need to convert your garage into something else to make it look amazing. A few changes could transform your garage completely and make it a much more enjoyable space.

Install a Stylish Door
Your garage door is something you can see from the inside and outside of your garage. It affects the image of your home from the exterior and changes your property's curb appeal too. A stylish door can make a huge difference as to how your garage looks, and it's not too difficult to install a new one. Along with considering different styles, you'll need to take a look at garage door motors. Being able to open your door automatically is obviously a huge advantage. You need to have the correct mechanism to open your garage door swiftly and safely.

Choose Storage for a Tidy Space
A garage can look untidy so easily. As well as using it to store your car or another vehicle, it's also a convenient place for storing anything from gardening tools to sports equipment. Various items just piled up on shelves or along the walls leaves you with a messy looking space that certainly doesn't appeal to anyone. When you're planning a redesign of your garage, focus on storage and the best solutions for what you need to store. There are many garage storage ideas, from built-in cabinets to wall and ceiling storage systems. Think vertical too, such as hanging bikes and tools.

Practical But Smart Floors
A garage floor is often plain concrete or something similar. While it's practical, it can look extremely dull. It gets dirty and stained easily, and just that can make your garage look sloppy. There are several options that you can consider for your garage floor that give it a smarter look but are still practical. If you want to stick with concrete, a polished concrete floor can look sleek and modern. There are also options like PVC tiles that interlock or resin floors, which can both work for various purposes.

Add Light and Color
Garages can be dark and depressing places. They don't always have proper windows, and the lighting is often inadequate. Taking some steps to make your garage lighter can transform it completely. You can start by making sure there's plenty of lighting, and not just a single light bulb trying to light the whole space. The use of colour will improve things too, whether you paint the walls or get some colourful storage units. You could also have a colourful floor or just focus on a brighter door.

Your garage doesn't have to be boring. It can be a light, bright and tidy space if you want it to be. Hope some of these ideas help!
