How To Make The Most Of Your Garage

If you’re lucky enough to have a garage, there’s so much you can do with this space. A garage can be an extension of your home, a hideaway for the kids or simply a dry shelter for your car. If you’re planning a garage makeover this spring, here are some ideas to inspire you.

Spring clean
Garages tend to collect rubbish, broken bits of furniture and equipment, which doesn’t get much use. If you’re eager to make the most of your garage space, start by doing a clear-out. Get rid of anything you don’t use or need and give the room a thorough clean. If you’ve got lots of stuff lying around and it’s in good condition, run a stall at a car boot or visit a charity shop. Once you’ve cleaned, you should notice that your room looks a lot larger, and you can start making plans.

Cleaning is a chore most of us find boring, but it’s part and parcel of everyday life. Keeping on top of the garage maintenance will prevent clutter and mess. Devote an hour every weekend to tidying up and you’ll never have to spend days gutting the place ever again.



Be versatile
If you have a large garage and you only have one car, you could use the space for other purposes. Do you like to play music? Are you short of a study inside? Do you have children who would love a den to escape to? By sectioning off areas of the garage, you can make a versatile space, which caters for all members of the family. Add insulation for warmth and sound-proofing if you plan to use the space for playing music, doing DIY or fixing up cars.

Think about storage
There are lots of smart ways you can increase storage in a garage. Innovative examples include roof racks, cabinets, pull-out drawers and fold-away shelving. Browse the Internet for ideas and visit some showrooms. Does your garage tends to be a dumping ground for sports equipment and outdoor clothing? If so, why not fit some pegs and shelves at different levels on the wall to create a quirky, fun feature?



Change the layout
The layout of your garage can affect the size of its usable space. Often, switching the door and adjusting the location of sockets can create a much more effective working area. Ask for a quote for garage door installation and note down some ideas from your showroom tour. Choose a style of door, which matches the rest of your home and sets the tone for your garage makeover. Always ensure that you seek advice from a qualified electrician before you start making plans for new or modified powerpoints.


If your garage is crying out for some TLC, unlock its potential this spring. Be ruthless when it comes to clearing out and search for inspiration to create a new, versatile space. A well-designed garage can give you an extra room and provide the entire family with useful space. Even a small area can have its uses with the right planning and some innovative storage ideas.

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
