With spring coming soon, you likely have a good spring cleaning in mind for your home and garage. But what about after you have gotten rid of excess items and given your space a thorough dusting and vacuuming? Post-spring cleaning is the perfect time to consider giving your garage a makeover, and with the many home design services available today, there is no reason why your garage needs to remain a boring, sterile space. Here are a few ideas for dressing up your garage space.
Who says the walls of your garage have to remain white? If you’re not ready to commit to painting all of the walls in your garage a vibrant color, consider creating a bright accent wall in your garage where you could showcase all of the tools that you hang there.
Garage organization needs to be durable and able to stand up to the wear and tear that garages are so often exposed to, but that doesn’t mean that shelving and hardware need to be boring. Consider swapping out tired and bare wooden shelves for shiny metal ones, or try installing a magnetic strip on the wall to hold drill bits. You could even create a mudroom-like space near the garage’s entrance to your home, with built-in shelving, hooks, and an upholstered bench.
Custom Concrete Flooring
Did you know that concrete is so versatile that it can be stained and etched to achieve the look of wood? Concrete can be manipulated into taking on a myriad of colors and textures and can be thus made to match any housing style and any decor motif. Acid staining is a particularly popular finish these days because of the vibrant color it can lend to concrete flooring. With the possibilities available today that make concrete flooring suitable for even indoor living spaces, as well as the variety of coatings available to protect concrete floors against oils, greases, and other chemicals, there’s no better way to dress up your garage than to start with the floor.
A Wooden Garage Door
Like concrete flooring, wooden garage doors can be crafted to suit any home design style as well. They are very durable and an oft-preferred alternative to steel garage doors because of their stunning look and how they can stand up to bending and denting. Wooden garage doors can have very much the same grid-like look of the steel garage door familiar to most who grew up in a suburban region, or they can be dressed up with windows, additional paneling, and special stains to bring out their natural look. They can be crafted from a variety of wood types as well, with Cedar and Redwood being two of the most popular options.
