Make Better Use of Your Garage this Year

Your garage is more than just a place to park your car. It can be a valuable extension of your living space. It could be your workshop, your storage area, or even a home office! But if your garage is cluttered, poorly insulated, or has an outdated door, you are wasting its potential. Let’s think about how to make better use of your garage this year:

  • Clear it out and dispose of the junk. The first step to improving your garage is to get rid of the things you don’t need or use. Sort through your belongings and decide what to keep, donate, sell, or throw away. You will be surprised by how much space you can free up by decluttering your garage.
  • Think about what you want to actually use it for. Once you have cleared out your garage, you can start planning how to use it. Do you want to turn it into a hobby room, a home gym, or a playroom? Or do you just want to keep it as a garage, but with more organisation and efficiency? Whatever your goal is, make sure you have a clear vision of what you want to achieve with your garage.
  • Install good quality shelving to make use of the wall space. One of the best ways to optimise your garage space is to install shelving units on the walls. This will allow you to store your items neatly and accessibly, without taking up floor space.. You can customise your shelving to fit your needs, by adding hooks, baskets, or bins for smaller items.
  • Insulate the roof. If you want to use your garage as a comfortable and cosy space, you need to make sure it is well insulated. This will help you save energy and money on heating and cooling, as well as reduce noise and moisture. Start with the roof, as this is where most of the heat loss or gain occurs.
  • Upgrade the door. The final step to improving your garage is to upgrade your door. Your garage door is the entrance to your garage and also a key driver of your home’s kerb appeal. A new garage door can enhance the look and value of your home, as well as improve the security, functionality and thermal efficiency of your garage.
