There are many forms of garage organization that don't involve parking a car or storing a lawnmower. More and more people are opting for more creative uses of garages and sheds to make them more practical and attractive. No matter what you decide to do with what may be the largest space in your home, start from the ground up and create an area that is exactly what you wanted.
Make a Man Cave
It doesn't take any fancy frills to turn a ho-hum garage into the envy of all your bros. One of the best garage interior ideas is fashioning a man cave, which is not only a great place to keep all the Lego monuments and cheesy decor that the lady of the house won't allow on display, but a relaxing place to hang out alone or with friends. Decide on a main feature or theme for the room such as a pool table or your old big screen TV. Extra points if your man cave has a bar.
Why should guys have all the fun? Think of what a lady could do with hundreds of square feet of extra space for crafts, hobbies, or just reading. Do tools, hoses, paint cans, and other unsightly necessities still need to be part of your garage organisation scheme? Install neat shelving on the walls and then attach a curtain system to the ceiling. Long, stylish curtains can keep everything out of sight.
Work From Home
No matter what business you're in, you'll first want to make sure you have any necessary permits and insurance if you're going to create a space in your garage that clients will visit. There are so many possibilities here! Some people actually create luxe spaces in their garage that are like a mini spa and use it for their hairdressing businesses. Maybe you just want an attractive home office to complete your work. If you will be storing electronic equipment, make sure you have a climate control system in mind. A lot of people have luck with portable air conditioning units and heaters.
All work and no play will make anyone dull. Garage interior ideas don't always have to be for adults. Make a unique and engaging place for the kids to play. Choose an attractive and durable flooring option (maybe just paint the cement) and bring in the toys. The best part is when company comes, the disarray that says "kids live here" will mostly be contained. Garage organisation can be fun when it means creating a new space for children
Take it to the Wood Shed
Finally, if you have a musician in the family and no detached garage, sheds are also awesome for setting up home studio. They're a great place to practice, or "shed" as they say, and it can keep the noise level down for everyone in the house. Install climate control to make it comfortable and keep the decor clean and simple so that it can be a relaxing place to focus that can double as a yoga studio.
