How To Give Your Garage the Ultimate Makeover

Maximize space and transform your garage into something brand new!

For many people, a garage is somewhere to park cars, maybe store some tools and equipment, but not much else. However, with just a little bit of time and effort, you can turn your garage into a space to host parties, work out, house guests, and so much more.

This is the perfect solution if you're lacking space or simply want to create a new space for your home.

Clean Sweep

Giving your garage a thorough cleaning can make it look brand new. Take this opportunity to reorganize the items you want to keep, and donate any things you don't need anymore. Depending on your specific needs, you may have to park your car in the driveway or on the street.

Lay Down the Groundwork

Changing up your floors or walls can really transform your garage.

Even out that old paint job with a fresh coat of paint on the walls. Using a light color can instantly help brighten up the space.

If you're tired of your concrete floors, you can install floor tiles, which are usually quick and easy to lay down while still being durable enough to park cars on. Flooring tiles come in a variety of colors and materials. Alternatively, you can paint a coating onto your floor like how you would paint a wall.

For a cozier feel, you can lay down some area rugs, which can be easily rolled up and stored later. In a pinch, you could even use old bedsheets or blankets.

After you've finished, add a weather seal to your garage door to keep dirt, water, and debris out of your garage and off your floor.

Light it Up

Don't get left in the dark. Make sure you have enough light in your space for your needs. You can install overhead lighting or add some lamps. Hanging string lights can add some soft lighting and also serve as festive decor for summer evening parties and the holidays.

Make it Your Own

Once you have your foundation, you can transform your garage into whatever you want. The added space of your garage can be used for a multitude of different purposes.

For a space ready to entertain all of your family and friends, stock a fridge or cooler with your favorite beverages, set up some lawn chairs, and bring out a folding table for food.

Fill your garage with yoga mats and weights for your own at-home gym.

Set up a TV and a couch to watch your favorite sporting event.
