Ever wonder why there are so many cars parked on the streets even in your neighborhood? It’s not because the family has so many cars or your neighbor just has some visitors, oftener than not, the reason is — they can’t park it in the garage. Funny isn’t it when the main purpose of the garage is to house cars, the garage has just become a junk or dirt room.
There are several solutions presented in magazines, TVs, websites, etc., on how to better equip and beautify your garage. Unfortunately, not all are too eager to do it, mainly because the clutter and mess in their garage are too much for them to handle. It’s actually a matter of prioritizing what-when-how to do it and where to put it.
Garage remodeling may be summarized into three basic steps, you don’t really have to call a professional to start planning and doing it. It’s just about organizing, remodeling, and building. For you to know what your garage needs, you have to dig up the intestines of your garage by cleaning or emptying it. Have everything pulled out or removed from your garage, start at a clean slate. Those items and things that have been transferred or moved from the garage must be sorted and categorized so that you’ll know what to do with them and where to place and look for them. Sometimes, you might just find your long-lost sporting good in one of those messy piles.
Then, do your garage remodeling, would you want those items back in the garage or would you prefer to put your garden tools and carpentry kit in a separate shed or storage area. In garage remodeling, it’s not all about your junk and tools, you can think of a lot of uses for space, besides just housing cars, it can be used as an additional office, workshop, studio, laundry room, etc. Lastly, you can work on building an extra story, without adding an inch in your main floor plan, you get to have an extra space or floor, which can be utilized as a room or storage facility. There’s no need for you to sacrifice the huge storage area of your garage, you can still utilize it as one, but make use of cupboards, built-in cabinets, etc. just to maintain the orderliness and cleanliness of the space.
Garage remodeling is truly a rewarding project, not only will you be fulfilled on the success of your project but your neighbors and your community as well, because it gives a good streetscape in the area (without your car parking on the street).
