Floor Covering: Garage floor coverings are not only practical, but they really make a difference in the overall appearance of your garage. When talking about coverings, there are many different types including garage floor paint, epoxy, tiles, and mats. Paint is certainly the least expensive method, but also the highest maintenance method. Paint will protect and make your garage look much better, but you will have to add a new coat probably once a year. Epoxy is similar to paint, but it’s thicker, and much more durable. It’ll give your garage floor that showroom look you find in many dealerships. Epoxy will cost you more than paint, and you’ll also have to do more preparation work, but the result will be worth the extra cost and effort. You can also opt for professional installation as most retailers offer the service. Garage floor tiles and mats are also options to consider. Tiles are typically 16 by 16 inches, and you can get them in a variety of colors. They interlock with each other to hold everything together, and they’ll make your floor look absolutely incredible. Mats come in many different shapes and sizes to fit your needs. They’re basically designed to contain automotive fluids, and all the muck your vehicle drags in with it.
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.
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.
Oil absorbent pads are also a necessity for cleaning up spills and other accidents. Spills are unavoidable in this business, but the last thing I want is for my garage floor to be covered in unsightly stains. The only remedy is to clean up a mess with oil absorbent pads as soon as it happens so the stuff doesn’t have a chance to soak in. I also use an eco-friendly powder agent to take care of any residue that the oil absorbent pads might have left behind. The result is that my garage floor is as spotless today as the day I moved in!
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.
For many people, the most common type of garage shelves that are chosen are the simple, yet durable, shelving units that you have to put together yourself. These can either be made out of plastic or metal and regardless of which type of material you use, they each have their benefits and drawbacks. Therefore, prior to considering one type of garage shelving over the other, it is in your best interest to do a bit of homework in order to determine which shelving units will be the best for you. This homework would involve taking a brief inventory of what types of items you plan on housing on the storage units — for instance, are they heavy, large objects or are they over-sized and awkward, or are do you just have a bunch of random boxes that need to find a home?
Quality: You can get custom storage systems on just about any budget. It all depends on the materials and the size of the overall system. It is not a quick process, and it can take several days for the manufacturer to complete and install each piece. Despite the fact that you may have to wait, what you get in return is quality you cannot find in a big box store. Some establishments market these systems as garage cabinets. However, it is better to use these materials in home closets. The design is not for the daily climates found in most garages. They easily wear out, and replacement is necessary within just a few months to a few years. Storage systems designed for your space use tougher material and seal it with a powder coat that makes it resistant to UV light, dents, scratches, and stains. The design lasts for years, even when you use it daily.
