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.
One of my hobbies is tinkering on old cars in my garage. To me there’s nothing more relaxing than getting under the hood of what someone else considers a ”piece of junk” and doing my thing to make it run again. I’m not quite at the point where I can say that I restore classic cars, but that’s definitely my goal someday. It takes money to get into that game, though, so for now I just practice on old beaters that I find for a couple hundred bucks each. Once I get the vehicles running again, I can usually find a buyer and recoup my costs.
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.
These days, state of art modular cabinet systems are being made that add style, sophistication as well as strength in modern cabinet designs to transform your garage into a functional room to keep all your extra stuff, leaving the house clean and ordered. Not only your garage, but these cabinets also provide you a chance to keep your house clean. Now you don’t have to leave your machines, devices and tools lying around. With proper garage cabinetry, all these things can be stored in their rightful places to be found easily whenever you need them!
First of all, we are assuming that you are not able or not interested in adding a bump out on the garage which will actually increase the floor space that is physically available. This is not an option for most people, but there are some things that can be done which will help to get things off of the floor and improve your ability to use the garage effectively. One important thing that you should consider is the ceiling, as it is an unused area of the garage in most cases. There are many things that can be hung from the ceiling in a garage such as fishing poles, lawn tools and your bicycle. Putting those items up an out-of-the-way can make a difference in your floor space that is open and available.
A craft room can benefit greatly by having a system similar to the pegboard garage storage. Craft materials can be quite messy just lying around unorganized. When a project is being started then time has to be wasted trying to find what is on hand, so the person knows what else to buy to complete the craft item. Paints, scissors, glue and many other craft material can be stored hanging on the pegboard, sitting on the shelves or in the bins that are on the pegboard.
Common faults with fibre board panels were the fixtures often popped off when you removed tools, an annoying habit that is remedied today with metal wall panels that require a special movement to unfix a fixture, ensuring the fixtures stay put when you remove a tool. A metal striped pegboard panel will not be damaged by moisture or water damage and will not warp under extreme temperature and physical conditions. A metal striped pegboard panel will not chip or sag from the weight of the tools it supports, there is also the danger of the fine fibre particles themselves from the pegboard which can enter the lungs and cause much damage to your health.
