If you have a garage, you’re blessed with a lot of space that can be put to great use – whether that’s by protecting your car, having a space to work on your car, or just using it as an additional room to your house. Unfortunately, most people neglect their garage and, as a result, miss out on the large number of benefits that a garage can offer. If you’ve been neglecting your garage recently, get it up to scratch again with one or more of the following upgrades.
- A Garage Door Hub
A garage door smart hub is an effort-saving piece of technology that allows you to check whether your garage door is open or closed by just using your phone. This serves three major benefits – it allows you to check to see whether you’ve left the garage open (and close it wherever in the world you are), it allows you to oversee your packages get securely delivered, and it serves as a safety tool – so you can see if your garage has been forced open. You can also integrate it with a security camera.
- A New Garage Door
Because a garage door is exposed to the elements, it often gets beaten by the weather and looks old fairly quickly. This is especially true if it’s made from cheap material or material that is not designed to be weathered. If you want a garage door that looks good and continues to look good even as it ages, you should consider wooden garage doors, which give a garage a classic feel. Wood is hardy, and it looks great even when it is old.
- A Wall Storage System
A toolbox is useful and all, but if you tinker with tools a lot, it can be easy for things to get lost in a big toolbox. A wall storage system is great if you want to get your garage more organized, as it allows you to display and store your tools or anything you want really. A wall storage system is a great way for you to declutter and make the most of the empty walls your garage likely has.
- Home Gym
If you have a garage but don’t know what to do with it, consider a home gym – you can easily set up a treadmill and some weights and save money on a gym membership. A home gym doesn’t even need to be that big, and you could have a home gym even in a garage that you use.
- Games Area
You might also want to turn your garage into a games area if you aren’t using it for parking your car. Choose your favourite option from billiards, pool, table tennis, table football, or air hockey, and maybe install a bar for you and your friends to enjoy. If you have never been one for table games, a card table might be more affordable and more versatile, or if you prefer film to games, you can set up a projector and create a home cinema.
