Hands up if you have a garage in your home? Okay, now keep your hand up if you’re actually using the
garage for something practical and it’s not just sitting there collecting dirt and dust? I’m no psychic, but I
guess quite a few hands just dropped after that second question. The fact is, we just forget about our
garage and end up using it to store loads of clutter. So much so that it just gets filthy and messy, making
our home look uglier as a result.


So, you can transform your garage by trying any of these simple ideas:

Clear out clutter

Firstly, you need to get rid of all the clutter in your garage. Don’t sit there and claim that you need to use
this space for storage, we all know you’ve got things in there that will never be used again. It’s okay to
turn your garage into a storage room, but don’t use this as an excuse to store empty boxes, old clothes
that need to be thrown out, and broken kitchen appliances. Go through your entire garage and throw out
anything that you’re not actually going to use. There’s no point in it taking up space, so you need to get
rid of it. It will amaze you when you see how much of a difference this makes to your garage. Right
away, it will feel like a different place.

Upgrade the door

Your garage door is far more important than you may think. It’s the face of your garage and will usually
be the only part of it most people see. Therefore, you can’t let it get overrun with weeds and look very
beaten up. One simple idea is to upgrade the door, so it looks much more modern and fresh. Loads of
contemporary garage doors will fit nicely with the exterior of your home and completely improve your
curb appeal. The beauty of this is that people on the outside won’t know what’s on the inside of your
garage, so as far as they know, you’ve undergone a full garage renovation!

Give it a new purpose

Lastly, you should think about giving your garage a new purpose. What are you currently using it for? If
the answer is nothing, then you’ve got a world of opportunities at your fingertips. Why don’t you make
this garage your new home office, games room, or even a washing room? Ideas like this are genius as
they help free up space in your home while also making your garage a place that you’ll actually use.
So, it’s not just sitting there collecting clutter and looking filthy. Instead, it’s got a new purpose, and
you’ll absolutely love it.

Hopefully, these ideas help you get more out of the most neglected area of most peoples homes. If your
garage is collecting dirt and being a haven for clutter, then you need to try something new. Any of these
ideas will help transform it into something much better.
