Similar to a home’s loft, a garage is an often forgotten space used to haphazardly store your odds and ends, garden equipment and old bikes that go untouched for months until they are needed.
There are several modern innovations that more and more people are utilising to make the most of their otherwise wasted garage space, to turn it into a functional room of the house.
If you are interested in joining these people, a garage makeover to give you additional living space, an organised storage area, or even a hobby room might be the ideal answer. But what garage room options are available, and how can it be done?
What are the options for Garage makeovers?
There are a whole host of different functional space options that you can transform your garage into, including:
While you may already use your garage for storage, Garageflex can help you declutter and organise your belongings. A typical garage has three walls suitable for storage, and we can help you utilise them effectively to make the most out of your space to expand your storage potential. We have a range of wall-mounted storage accessories to choose from, including cabinets, shelves and racks.
The walls aren’t the only area of your garage that can benefit from storage accessories, as it’s important to make use of the often underused vertical space available. Our garage ceiling storage solutions include racks, ladders and overhead bike hooks/hoists.
A Home Gym
An increasing number of people are looking to create home gyms, and an unused garage is an excellent place for it. While it might be a high initial cost, it’s a great long-term investment that saves you money on a monthly membership by bringing the gym to you.
In order to facilitate room for a home gym in your garage, you’ll first need to clear the space with efficient storage solutions so there is enough space for your chosen exercise machines or weights. After this, it’s essential that you invest in some PVC garage floor tiles to provide a good non-slip surface to exercise on. These tiles will also be able to withstand the weight of your gym equipment and come in a range of different colours so you can separate out sections of your home gym.
A Home Office
With more and more people working from home since the pandemic, there has become a greater need for extra space and a separate working environment that offers a relaxing atmosphere while inspiring productivity.
The garage offers a perfect separation from the house that removes you from distractions and allows you to work from home effectively.
Gone are the days of using a garage to house your car, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it needs to stay that way. Coupled with our storage solutions to neatly structure your possessions, our resin and tile garage floor solutions make for perfect car storage able to withstand the weight and provide a high-quality finish.
Our resin floor not only gives an incredibly appealing visual that complements your car, but it also is long-lasting and able to withstand up to twenty years without peeling or flaking like epoxy coats.
On top of this, we are able to offer a selection of both roller and sectional garage doors to complement your new garage interior. We can also replace two separate garage doors with one, so you can effortlessly get your car parked securely in the garage.
