Garage Remodeling Options
The garage is one of the most overlooked rooms of a house. The typical homeowner sees it as just a place to store their vehicles or some of their possessions that they can’t find room for elsewhere. But what they don’t realize is that the garage has much more potential beyond just car storage. It can be transformed into a more useful and beautiful part of your home with the help of a garage contractor.
Refinishing Your Floor
One of the main things that can make your garage look dingy and mundane is the flooring. Oil stains and other blemishes can give your floor a dirty and unmaintained look. In addition, the common concrete flooring isn’t attractive or comfortable to walk on. The solution to this is either putting in new flooring or finishing the old, both of which allow you a variety of options.
Floor coatings come in two different types, paint and epoxy. If your floor is covered in grease stains, painting over them can give your garage a new and vibrant appearance. Epoxy is a more heavy duty type of coating that is resistant to staining and water and comes in a variety of styles and colors.
Another option to renew your garage flooring is to put down a floor covering. A quick and easy choice is to lay down a floor mat. Floor mats are available in a variety of different textures, colors, and styles – some of which have great absorption qualities. For a more permanent solution, you can opt for tiling which comes in rigid plastic, rubber, and plastic varieties.
Garage Door Opener
Are you tired of having to get out of your car just to open your garage every time you pull up? Adding a garage door opener can make your life easier by letting you automatically open your door with the touch of a button. Most openers also come with sensors to ensure that you don’t accidentally close the door on your vehicle.
Would you rather use your garage for something aside from storing your cars? Maybe you want another living room or a workout room – or maybe your in-laws need somewhere to stay. With the right modifications, you can turn your garage into pretty much any room you want. Put in carpet flooring, add walls and windows, and even install plumbing to transform your garage into something completely new and different.
Shelving and Cabinets
If you still like the idea of your garage as a place of storage, adding shelving and/or cabinets is a great way to enhance it. Shelving can allow you to store items on the sides of your garage or even up above your vehicles. It can really maximize the amount of space you have available. Cabinets can also add space for storage and can even be used to lock away certain items. In addition to their functional purpose, shelving and cabinets will add to the overall aesthetic of your garage and their appearance can be customized with a variety of stylings.
