With a little creativity, your garage can be so much more than a place to throw your storage boxes. Adding some new features or redecorating the room yourself can be a fun DIY project for you and your family. Whether you’re looking for some new storage solutions for quick garage organization or you want to create a new room in your house, this guide will help you consider how to change up your space.
If your garage is an essential storage space, consider some of these DIY ideas:
- Overhead storage: Why not turn the open area of your ceiling into a place for convenient storage? You can create a cage system that your boxes will fit perfectly in by using beams and bars.
- Stacked storage: Storage containers take up less floor real estate when you stack them on top of one another. A good practice is to place heavier, less-used containers on the bottom. If you want to keep the boxes off the ground, you can create a storage shelf with some plywood and nails so that each container is easily accessible.
- Wall storage: If you have tools and decor you’d like to display, a walled storage option might be your best bet. Use pegboards and wall mounts to make a customizable display that can adapt to your needs.
Another cool storage idea is to use your garage as an extension of your house. Home offices and gyms are common additions, but you might also consider turning your garage into a spare bedroom for visitors or a “man cave” to escape into.
If you’re looking to truly transform your garage storage space, these unique ideas will make you and your guests want to spend all your time there:
- Lounge or bar area: An entertaining space is essential if you get a lot of company. Why not turn your garage into a gathering area? Include seating, a TV, some games or a bar and get ready to make memories in your renovated space.
- Hobby room: Fishing, golfing, scrapbooking, dancing — all of these hobbies require space to practice and store your supplies. Your garage could make the perfect crafting or practice room with the correct adjustments.
