It could sure use a little work to make it a more functional place. So, here are a few ideas you can use to give your garage a much-needed makeover.
Your garage has had that one pull string light for a long time, and the bulb has been shot for more than a year now.
Instead of replacing the bulb, it might be time to switch out that one light for some more intense LED lighting options.
This will not only add more light to the garage, but it will make it a more suitable place for doing projects with your power tools too.
Add a Shelving System
Nothing helps to liven up a garage like a brand-new shelving system. A few well-placed shelves can help you to keep all your tools organized.
They will also make the far wall look less barren. With all the new space, you will have room for a few boxes you have wanted to get out of your closet as well.
A New Garage Door
That old, rusted out, dismal garage door has seen better days. In fact, it is time to replace it with a new garage door, like the automatic kind that uses a remote, with small decorative windows. Only this time you are thinking a lighter color will make the front of your home look neater and cleaner.
Sure, you will have to do a little electric work to install the one touch button on the wall near the inside door of your home, but it will make getting your car in and out of your garage so much easier—especially in the winter time.
Adding a Dehumidifier
Your garage has a concrete floor that has a tendency of sweating at certain times of the year. Typically, this occurs when the temperature of the concrete is at or below the dew point. Painting and sealing the floor will not prevent concrete sweating, but getting a dehumidifier for your garage can help to prevent this problem. Also, you can help to keep your floor dry with a fan to help distribute air flow across the surface of the concrete.
Installing a Freezer
Since you have a lot of additional room in your garage, you thought it might be nice to install a freezer. The purpose of the freezer would be to hold excess food and be a great place for packed meat after you go hunting this Fall. With a lot of frozen meat and other food items to eat, you should be able to use this part of your garage to keep your food costs low throughout the Fall and Winter months.
