Spruce Up, But Don’t Overlook This Room!

By Shurby

When it comes to doing home improvements, there is one room in the house that is often overlooked. Most of the time, this room isn’t even really considered a room. What are we talking about? The garage of course!

Whether you are looking for a new way to freshen your home, or looking for a competitive edge in the housing market, updating your garage can add usable square footage to your home without tearing down any walls!

Resurface and Repaint the Walls

Garage walls are often heavily abused. Resurfacing and repainting the walls will create a crisp look. Don’t just go with the typical white; try a neutral pastel color or a muted jewel tone to add character. Another idea is to paint part of the garage with chalkboard paint, to give the kids a creative area without bringing the mess into the rest of the house.

Add an Epoxy Coating to the Floor

Nothing is worse than the oil stains that cars leave behind on the garage floor. Get rid of those stains with epoxy coating, a heavy-duty coating that will protect your floor for years to come. Redoing the floor of the garage will make even a two-car garage look like a showroom.

Install Shelves and Organizational Units

Garages usually accumulate all of the things that we don’t know what to do with. Sometimes that can get out of control.

Installing a few shelves can help to utilize wall space in the garage, and give you extra storage to help declutter the often insurmountable garage clutter. If you have a lot of tools, why not have shelves added to create a proper work space for yourself.

Garages shouldn’t be an afterthought. Instead, a garage should be another room in the house for your family to enjoy.
