You want to use your garage, but it looks like a dark, gray dungeon — unless you roll open the garage door; then, the space is either empty or cluttered. When you come and go from your home, your garage is simply a place to store your vehicle or keep all of your belongings that don’t have a permanent place in your home. You may even have a hobby or social inclinations that you use your garage for, but there’s little to no storage with even fewer organization capabilities.
Imagine a garage space that you can use exactly how you want. A place where you can go to work on classic cars, enjoy a beer with your friends, or simply store your exotic vehicle. What if you had a garage storage and organization system that allowed you to give each item in your garage a place? It would make life so much easier when you went to get your bicycle for a weekend ride or your camping gear for a week-long adventure with the family.

5 Ways to Use Your Garage
Your garage ought to be your own; it’s a space you can customize and organize to your liking. For most, their garage is an “empty” space that’s rarely leveraged to enhance their lives — but you’re not like most people. You know the value of utilizing every inch of space that you’re given, and this is why you’re interested in different ways to use your garage.
#1. The Standard Garage
A standard garage is utilitarian. It has a set function, and you utilize it for a handful of things like extra storage, laundry, or parking your car. While this is the common use of a garage, it doesn’t have to be boring or stale. You can remodel your garage to offer more storage and organization options so that you can keep things clean, situated, and in their place.
To start with a standard garage, you want to consider the floor first. Consider an epoxy coating. Next, you want to look at how you would like to design your storage and organization. You will want to install cabinets and wall storage to accommodate your needs. At the end of the day, as long as you can leverage your garage space effectively, you’re accomplishing what most homeowners never consider.
#2. The Man Cave
It’s tough to deny the fact that the garage is a great space to design and install a man cave. For most, the garage is a half-used space for inefficient and disorganized storage. And when you invite your friends over, you want a place you can go and enjoy it.
Imagine a space where you can turn on the game, have a few beers with friends, and play a game of pool. If your garage is large enough, you can even store some classic or exotic cars to gawk at while you’re enjoying one another’s company. More of a dart thrower? Install a dartboard. Want to impress your buddies with your latest hunting score? Mount the rack on your wall of trophies. No matter your interests, you can design a space that fits your social inclinations.
To start with a man cave, it’s important to decide what are the top two or three hobbies or interests that you want to spend your time on the most. For example, you may be a mechanic by day, but love watching the Giants beat the Dodgers. Add in your favorite classic car project and a few of your favorite beverages, and you have a man cave most everyone would be envious of — and that’s the point, right?
Here are some man cave combinations you can build off of for your own garage remodel:
- The Classic Car Man Cave
- The Craft Beer and Cocktails Man Cave
- The Sports Bar Man Cave
- The Unique/Eclectic Man Cave
#3. The Workspace
Have you ever tried to work on your hobby or craft in a cluttered or disorganized garage? You spend more time looking for the tool you need than actually using it. What’s more, you can’t seem to finish anything because you’re constantly cleaning up a mess that’s in the way of your project.
Imagine a garage that is open, clean, organized, and situated to fulfill your hobby or craft. An epoxy floor, custom wood or metal cabinets, and custom wall storage enhances your ability to master your craft or hobby. It’s time you invested in your free time and made it more enjoyable to actually spend time in your garage.
Here are some potential hobbies or craft titles that may inspire you toward remodeling your garage:
- The Carpenter
- The Mechanic
- The Painter
- The Sculptor
- The Adventurer
#4. The Gym
Do you have a knack for fitness? Are you committed to staying in shape? An at-home gym is effective only if you’re able to use it. One of the major issues homeowners run into with a home gym is that the garage space around it is never completely clean and organized. Have you ever tried to carry a 25-pound weight over to a squat rack and tripped over a rogue shoe? It’s not a pretty outcome.
Imagine a custom garage that facilitates your fitness goals. The weights, machines, and mats are all organized and ready for use. What’s more, the other parts of your life that you store in the garage are organized and stored properly so that they are out of the way of your fitness routines. Finally, think about how much quicker you can complete your workout when you don’t have to dodge random items spread out across the garage.
Consider the type of fitness you want to participate in; then, design your perfect at-home gym. Keep in mind that you can have exactly what you need, nothing less.
#5. General Storage
Instead of paying monthly for a storage unit, why not design a garage that can store all of your valuable belongings? It can be inconvenient to drive across town for that one item you know is the in the box with “Dave’s Stuff” written in black sharpie on the top flap. Why not have it stored in your garage, organized in a designated place?
Imagine being able to have all of your belongings at your fingertips. No matter what you needed, you would know exactly where it’s located — if not at least the general area of where you remembering storing it. It’s a hassle to waste time looking for something you’re going to use once and replace it. Why not cut that time down with a garage storage and organization system that supports your needs?
