How To Upgrade Your Garage
Are you tired of your garage bringing down the rest of your home? Do you wish it felt more welcoming and inviting? More often than not, although our garages are extensions of our homes, they’re dull and drab and we really don’t like spending any more time than absolutely necessary there. When you upgrade your garage, you’re not only making it a more pleasant and aesthetically pleasing space, you also have the opportunity to increase the value of your home.
There are many ways to upgrade your garage, from adding in cabinets to installing a sleek garage floor coating. Here are some of the ways you can upgrade your garage!
#1. Let There Be Light
It’s quite common that garages are only ever illuminated by a bare bulb. In some cases, you may have more than one lighting fixture, but they still feel dark and harsh. An excellent way to upgrade your garage is to let more natural light in. You can do this by having some windows or skylights installed in the walls.
If you’re due for a garage door replacement or you’re planning on replacing it to upgrade your garage, consider opting for a garage door with windows in it or that is made out of mostly glass. This will really brighten up your garage and make it feel more comfortable.
#2. Insulate It
Insulating your garage is a way to upgrade your garage that makes it both more comfortable and adds a selling point to your home. When you have your garage insulated, you’re ensuring that it’s more comfortable to be in, regardless of the exterior temperatures. Be careful about adding insulation to your garage door, though, as this can add weight to it and throw it off balance. It’s best to leave insulating the garage door itself to the professionals.
#3. Install A Storage System
Does your garage have piles and piles of boxes of dusty holiday decorations and things you rarely use? Another way that you can upgrade your garage is through adding in a storage system. There are many different types of storage systems for all different budgets. You can have built-in cabinets and shelves, ceiling storage, and more.
You can really upgrade your garage with your storage system if you go for something that matches the aesthetic of the rest of your home and that has doors to hide the clutter. Plus, it’s so much easier to find what you need if you just need to open drawers or cabinets or labeled totes, rather than rooting through battered boxes.
#4. Install A Garage Floor Coating
Concrete may be durable, but uncoated, it’s dusty and not the most attractive flooring option. It’s very easy for concrete floors to generate a ton of dust and to get stained and cracked and more. If you want to upgrade your garage, consider having a garage floor coating installed. Garage floor coatings can be customized to look just the way you want them to, so if you want your garage to have a certain aesthetic, a garage floor coating can help with that.
Garage floor coatings also improve the comfort, value, and durability of your garage by adding a protective layer on top of your garage floors. This helps to protect it from any damages, such as stains and cracks. Garage floor coatings also make your garage safer by providing a smoother surface to walk on. They can be made even safer if you have a grit additive mixed into your garage floor coating, so that there’s texture to the floor.
