If you’re a fan of watching home improvement shows, you’ve undoubtedly heard them talk about the value of “curb appeal.” But did you know that curb appeal involves more than just fresh paint and good landscaping? A serviceable garage is a good start, but a nicely renovated garage can go a long way toward boosting your home’s value as well as the curb appeal. Here’s what you need to know:
The Embarrassment of The Messy Garage
More than 50% of homeowners admit they avoid opening their garage because of the clutter and detritus inside. And roughly that same number admit to wanting an envy-worthy garage. So, when we say you’re not alone in your feelings about your messy garage, we mean it! Garage renovations are a great way to make the most of the least organized space in your home, and to increase your home’s value while you’re at it!
When we talk about garage renovations, it can be as simple as installing some garage storage and organization tools, and maybe adding in an epoxy garage floor coating. On the other hand, garage renovations can also entail a total overhaul that turns your garage into additional living space. In either case, the work you put in helps boost curb appeal and overall home value. Here are a few ways you can update and upgrade your garage:
Clear It Out and Start Fresh
Most homeowners inevitably turn their garage into a veritable dumping ground for sporting equipment, unused household goods, and all those other things you don’t use very often. The first step to an enviable garage is to clear it out and get rid of anything you don’t want or need. Once you’ve done that, you’ll have a much clearer idea of how much you need to store and what kinds of garage storage and organization you’ll need.
Repair or Renovate
It doesn’t take a whole lot to make a garage look like it’s worth a million bucks. Applying an epoxy garage floor coating makes the space look fresh and new, and it also helps prevent stains and damage in the future. A fresh coat of paint, or maybe some additional drywall can also give your garage new life, no matter how you intend to use it.
Add Garage Storage and Organization Tools
Whether it’s a wall storage system, hooks, or custom garage cabinets, there’s no denying that garage storage and organization goes a long way toward making your garage something to show off, rather than hide.
Give It New Purpose
If you want to give your garage a whole new lease on life, there are plenty of options. Your garage could become an entertaining space, a workout zone, or a home office. Talk to your garage renovation team about customizing options depending on how you want to use the space!
