Your garage is an extension of your home. Therefore, you can put just as much energy into its design as you do with your house. Increase your convenience and usability by including some of these must-have accessories. You’ll be surprised how much more you can enjoy your garage when you take full advantage of that space.
Storage Cabinets/Overhead Storage
Take advantage of the extra square footage that your garage adds to your home. It’s the perfect place to store Christmas supplies, sporting equipment, and other gear that you don’t want to keep inside your home. Storage cabinets are the ideal accessory for keeping all your things organized and neat. If your garage feels a little tight on space, go vertical, and use overhead and wall storage for extra space.
If you’re an avid cyclist or enjoy other activities, installing racks for your bike or kayak is the perfect way to store and display your favorite toys. Like the wall and overhead storage, these racks still allow plenty of space for parking your vehicle. Plus, it makes them easily accessible when you’re ready to get outside for some fun.
Barbells and Exercise Equipment
Turn your garage into a personal home gym. Stock it up with your favorite exercise equipment. Think about your goals and some of your favorite workouts. You could include a heavy bag for boxing or even a full power rack for lifting. Depending on the size of your garage, you may even have space for a treadmill, weight bench, or stationary bike.
Signage for Decor
Accessorize your garage with signs that make it feel like home. Get custom signage that features your family name or other cool phrases that display how you’re using your garage. For example, if you’re using it for fitness, you could accessorize with a customized sign that says, “weight room rules” or “no pain, no gain.” You could also consider lighted signs that include your name or even your favorite sports team.
It isn’t always easy pulling the car perfectly into your garage. Parking aids can help ensure that you park safely every time. Wall guards can help protect your car doors and walls against smudges and scrapes. A laser parking helper will let you know just when you’re in the right spot. Parking mats usually come with front and rear bumps that let you know when you’re in the perfect position. These are especially helpful with two-car garages when you have to leave ample space for the next vehicle.
Home EV Charger
The market for electric vehicles is surging. As drivers are becoming more conscious of their vehicle emissions, more people are making the switch. Depending on the size of the car and the speed of charging point, it can take up to 12 hours to fully charge an electric vehicle. For electric car owners, having a home EV charger will help you save time and money. If it takes your electric vehicle many hours to charge, you can replenish your battery while you’re enjoying the comfort of your own home.
