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.
If you want extra storage room in your garage, and let’s face it, who doesn’t, then garage storage cabinets are the simplest solution to organize the overfilled garage. Garage cabinets are very important as they provide a very clean, professional and organized look and give you a place to store all your junk!!
Anyway, I’ve learned that working on cars is a whole lot easier if my garage is as clean and organized as possible. That’s why I’ve got pegboards all along each wall, several toolboxes, and a bunch of oil absorbent pads right at my side. I’ve gotten in the habit of hanging my tools neatly on the pegboards or placing them in a toolbox as soon as I’m done using them. This cuts down on wasted time because I no longer have to spend five minutes looking for a particular wrench. I know exactly where it is at all times.
Do you have a garage at home? How do you use your garage? Can you work comfortably inside your garage? Majority of us have our garage at home which serves different purposes. Some families converted their garage to a home-based office, while others use it as a space to work different repair jobs. Some even used their garage as a storage space to store unused and outgrown items which they believed will be needed in the future.
Drive-in. If you are using your garage for its original purpose and that is to store your car, you can still make it attractive by changing the exterior look. You can plant flowers around the garage, make sure that the driveway is kept in good shape without cracks. The garage door should also be kept clean and operate without problems. If there are windows in the garage make sure that you keep them clean, inside and out. Make sure that you keep your garage junk free, using shelves and cabinets to keep items in.
Pegboard: Pegboard is nothing new to home garages. However, there are plenty of modern innovative shelves, hooks, bins, and containers that fit into pegboard. You can find these items at any home improvement center. You can use them for lawn and garden tools, household hardware, winter clothing, hand tools, etc. Pegboard is the most versatile type of organizer you can use. Basic pegboard is a little flimsy, but you can make it stronger by adding more supports when you mount it. You can also paint it to fit the theme of your garage. There are also other types of pegboard such as plastic and metal, which are available in different colors. Of course, they’re a little more expensive, but they’re also stronger, so you can use them to hold heavier items. No matter which type of pegboard you use, it’ll help you control clutter which is one of the most common problems in residential garages.
The pegboard storage is not just for the garage though. It can be used to make the laundry room easy to get around in and more functional too. Shelves can be used for the iron, spray starch, lint remover, stain remover and other items. The ironing board can be hung to save space along with a mop for quick clean ups. On the dowel provided on one of the shelves empty hangers can be placed for hanging clothes on as they come out of the dryer.
