Light Switch: Another way to modernize your garage is to upgrade the light switch with one that’s illuminated when the lights are off. This eliminates fumbling around looking for the switch while leaning over, and holding the entry door open for enough light to find the switch. Even better, it’s inexpensive and easy to do yourself. With basic knowledge of electricity, all you have to do is turn off the breaker that feeds the switch and wire up the new switch the same way. There are no additional wires to worry about. The end result is a mild orange glow that’s easy to find in the dark. Another option is to add motion sensors to your garage lights so they come on as soon as you open the door. You can even get motion bases that screw into standard sockets. Once installed, all you have to do is screw in the light bulb as usual. This is a clever way to have motion activated lighting without having to do any wiring.
One other thing that you can do which will make a difference in the garage is to finally sort through the items and get rid of anything that you are not using. The choice of whether to throw those items away or sell them through a yard sale (or online) is going to be up to you. You might be surprised with how many of those items you can remove from the area and how much of a difference it is going to make in the usable floor space in the garage. Once you have made these changes, the only decision that you are going to need to make is if you are going to park a car in the garage or use it for another purpose.
Shop. If city ordinances allow it, you could turn your garage into a shop. It could be a beauty parlor, a used clothing shop, gift shop, etc. Here you will also need shelves, pegboard to hang things on, and racks to display hanging clothing if you have a clothing store, counters, and more. One thing that you do not want to do is overcrowd your garage. You want to make sure that the people who visit have room to move around. Always make sure that your displays are attractive. You could have a regular garage door or one that has door for customers to enter so you do not have to leave the area exposed when open. Again, you can paint the walls white or choose vibrant colors. What color you use depends on what you are using the garage to sell. You will also have to advertise and put a sign in the yard advertising your shop or on the garage itself.
