Why Garage Cabinets Can Take Your Garage from Drab to Fab
Thursday, June 3rd, 2021 by Brad Woolgar
One of the most overlooked spaces in the modern home is the garage. All too often used as simply an automobile hangar or cluttered storage space, it truly can be versatile if you only manage to get the hang of it. Small improvements, like improving the garage floors or installing garage cabinets, can go a long way toward maximizing this space and making it something worthy of envy instead of dread.
In this article, we're going to briefly go over the many benefits of improving your garage, and specifically focus on garage cabinets and floor coatings. By simply changing these two things in your garage, you can make it into a multi-functional space that is more than simply a sleeping space for your weary car.
Add Organizational Space You Can Use
When you install garage storage cabinets, you'll finally have space that you can actually use in the garage instead of storing things on the floor. When you don't have any storage space, it is almost a law of nature that things will inevitably become cluttered and disorganized. Yet when those garage cabinets appear and are arranged correctly, it's like magic with how items disappear and the entire space at least gives the semblance of being organized. Even if things are messy behind closed doors, it's no longer an eyesore.
Form Follows Function
Aside from being organized, installing garage cabinets of various sizes and specialties can enable your garage to become a workspace of sorts. If you're into carpentry, metalworking, or any other industrial hobby, the garage is a perfect space to practice your craft safely and away from the sensitive areas of your home. If you combine cabinets with a special floor coating, you may be able to pursue even more intricate projects that would normally require a specialized workspace. Instead of having to rent one or travel far away, create this in your home!
It Improves the Value of Your Home
To put it simply, buyers like homes that have functional space that improve their lives. This is common sense when it comes to home repairs or installing the latest appliances, but it seems to slip people's minds when something is hidden in the garage or out of the domestic home. By installing garage cabinets in your garage, you will appeal to many homeowners who desire these units but don't want to go through the hassle of installing them on their own.
Have a Durable, Safe Garage Floor
If you still have the garage floor that came with your home, you may want to consider switching to polyaspartic floor coating. While you may not think it necessary now, the benefits of it go on and on. It is stain-resistant, has zero hot tire pick-up, and has a well-balanced texture that provides more footing than traditional garage concrete — yet it's so much easier to clean and maintain! The color stays vibrant as time goes on. It's also safe, so you don't have to worry about smaller children or elderly relatives staying stable in the garage. It's an investment that people don't often regret.
Allow Your Garage to Fully Function
When you realize the full potential of your garage, the possibilities are endless! It can be so much more than car storage if only the work is put into it to try and improve it. From installing cabinets for organizations and hobbies to remastering the floor with a non-stick safety coating, the garage truly can be crafted into a space that allows form to follow function. When 55% of Americans spend 1-2 hours each week in the garage doing hobbies and other activities, this only makes perfect sense to do!
