It’s that time of year again – Spring! That means, time to organize, clean and get ready for warmer weather, filled with outdoor activities. If your garage is on your list of projects this Spring, we’re here to help. We’re counting down the top 5 ways to take back your garage!
Simply sorting the garbage from the keepers is a great way to take back your garage. Not only will it free up space in your garage, but it can be a great de-stresser as well, once you’ve cleaned everything out. Have something in good condition that you don’t need? Sell it on Kijiji or have a garage sale. After all, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure!
#4. Let there be light!
If you plan on spending some time in your new garage and turning it into a place hobbies, a home gym, etc., it has to feel livable. Brighten up your garage by installing some good lighting. If you have a window, give it a clean and let some light in!
Does your garage have insulation and drywall? If yours doesn’t, this is definitely something to think about installing. Painted walls in the garage truly make the space feel like an extension of your home, rather than a place for dust to collect. You can also look into spicing up your floors by installing a special floor coating, or simply painting the concrete with floor/porch paint!
#2. Heat it up
If you live in a cold place (Like Alberta!) and have a good sized garage, you can use your garage year round for more than just storing your car and camping gear. By investing in a garage heater, you can create a great workstation for whatever your hobbies might be.
You arrive home from a long day away and most often the first space you see, if you can actually drive into it, is your unorganized garage. This has a way of affecting your mood.
Garages are one of the most important places to have good storage, if you take the time to do it right. So many garages aren’t utilized to their full potential, and if you let the junk pile up, your garage becomes nothing more than wasted square footage.
This is why storage is the number one way to take back your garage. When everything has it’s own place, you have so much more time to use your garage for your hobbies, not to mention the space to do it!
