If you are planning to makeover your garage, you might not be sure where to start or what should be included. Here are five common components of a successful garage renovation that you should keep in mind as you plan your custom garage.
Keys to A Successful Custom Garage Makeover
#1 Garage Cabinets
Garage cabinets look great and add a lot of functional hidden storage to your garage. These are perfect for items that you might not want out in the open, such as rags, garage chemicals (get locking cabinets if you have young children who might get into dangerous substances), certain tools, and so on. These come in a variety of colors and styles, so you will be able to choose something that you will enjoy seeing your garage -- your neighbors will have garage envy, too!
You need a place to store your small hand tools and hardware. A dedicated workbench not only keeps these items safe and dust-free, but it also gives you a place to work, whether that entails fixing a motor or building a birdhouse with your children. Choose one that complements your decor and sense of style, and it will be a joy to use.
#3 Wall Racks
By covering the walls with either Gridwall or Slatwall storage racks, you can attach anything from baskets or bins to garage shelving to hooks without a hassle. Even better, the configurations can be changed whenever you want, making it a fluid storage system. Hang your brooms and rakes from hooks attached to the wall rack, and if you want to move them, just relocate the hooks elsewhere and put something else in the space they once took up. Have an entire wall covered in the rack system or just a strip on each wall; it’s up to you!
