No, we aren’t saying you should build yourself a brand new garage just because it’s a new year. You can if you want, but simply updating your garage might be a more feasible option for you. Often, when we think of remodeled houses, we picture pretty paint jobs, fresh flooring, an updated kitchen, and an array of other modernized fixtures and finishes. However, it is not often that an updated or upgraded garage crosses our mind. The truth is, an updated garage can not only add value to your home if you’re planning on selling, it can also save you money in the future if you plan on staying. There are many different things that can be upgraded in a garage, all of which can be a beneficial investment and make for a great gift to give yourself.
Though it may not seem like a major change, fresh paint can update the look of a garage just like any other room. Often, there are scuffs and marks that affect the appearance of the garage well, especially with numerous vehicles, tools, and storage boxes moving in and out of the space. By quickly and easily covering these blemishes, you can make your garage appear much cleaner and brighter than it was before.
Over time, residue from cars, such as oil or substances picked up along the roads, accumulates on the floor of your garage. Cleaning and refinishing this surface, whatever material it may be, can improve the cleanliness and appearance of your garage, as well as increase safety when walking around in the garage. When simply refinishing won’t cut it, you can install a new flooring option to change up the appearance, and improve the quality of your garage.
NEW GARAGE DOOR
The best way to update the facade of your garage is to invest in a new garage door. You can simply power wash and refinish your current garage door, or even change the paint color. If your garage door is outdated, or you want more of a change than just the color, consider replacing your door with something newer. There are many styles and options to choose from!
There is also the option to transition from a single large panel door to two smaller individual doors. This can drastically alter the appearance of your home, and can potentially save you energy costs with the openers only needing to lift smaller doors instead of a large door every time someone comes and goes. The options for split garage doors are endless!
