Besides your cars, there are certain necessities you probably stash in your garage. And now that we’ve spent more time at home during COVID, your garage has probably become more functional, perhaps even stylish and comfortable. Whether primarily for work, storage, or relaxation, here are some cool things to think about when it comes to refreshing your garage.
UPGRADE YOUR GARAGE BECAUSE IT'S WORTH IT
Homeowners want garages to extend the amount of useable space in their homes. Since DIY projects are becoming increasingly popular, more people value having a well-designed workspace within the garage. Getting items as simple as an adjustable workbench and convenient organization and compartmentalized, accessible storage for tools can provide you with a multi-functional space that several families members with different needs can share. And for those of you who have the space (and the inspiration) to go a bit beyond, adding a hangout space to your garage can add massive appeal and functionality to your home, for yourself, and for touring homebuyers. Whatever value garage upgrades bring come from what will make living in your home more functional. You know best what would make your day-to-day life easier, so keep that and your budget in mind when choosing any of your garage upgrades.
THE PERSONAL SPLENDOR OF GOOD SOUND
When you want to mellow out in the garage, music should be your companion of choice. And even if the speaker usually stays in the garage, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that it’s durable. It makes work so much better when you’re listening to something. Music is also great when you’re hanging out with friends, working out, practicing a sport, etc. Considering getting a better sound system than a small Bluetooth speaker.
MAKE ROOM TO MAINTAIN, YOURSELF
Having a home gym is a luxury, most people travel for hours per day and pay for expensive monthly gym memberships. So it goes without saying if it was possible to bring the gym to your home then it’s an avenue most people would love to consider. It’s also evident that many homeowners have an old garage with lots of rubbish gathering dust but with a few steps like emptying and cleaning the garage, getting the right equipment, and getting started, you’ll stay in shape all year long.
NEW ROADS, NEW SHOES
Throughout every season, take a look at your vehicle wear and keep maintenance in mind, especially your tires. Check for tire wear once each month, after long-distance travel. Also check the tires because of tire pressure and the need for rotation, balance, wheels alignment, or replacement.
