It is the time of the year again that we rack our brains for the best of the best Father’s Day gift ideas. We all know that a new golf set, car care kit, good ol’ perfume, new tie, shining tools, or even the cringeworthy “world’s best dad” coffee mug, shirt, and cap are so two thousand and late and are definitely off the list–in thick red ink blot. The gifts should be, first and foremost, useful and practical, extra thoughtful, can be totally unexpected, and should leave a lasting impression. There may be ideas already floating. But if you find your dad spending significant time in the garage, why not curtail your gift by helping him transform the space into a more personalized and special room for his needs. Making a personalized space that can be a place to de-stress while doing activities that you love and enjoy is a big thumbs up for one’s mental health, especially during these tough times. And for the many dads out there, that special place can be the garage. So, if you are thinking of what could be the best Father’s day present, the answer is right in front of you–help your dad achieve the garage of his dreams. There are many ways you could do that.
Help your dad organize and clean the garage
Perhaps your dad has been putting off the big garage cleanup project for quite sometime now. And we would not be surprised if clutter and junk have built up already. All he needs is that extra push, and you could be that little help he has been waiting for. You can do it on your own, but we would not recommend it as it is your dad who gets to decide which stuff lurking in the garage gets to go or still earns a space in the storage. Sit down with your dad and devise a plan. First, discuss when to mark your calendars for the big day. Then, map out the starting point of the decluttering process until the redesigning. And you can give ideas on how to layout the garage so he can fully maximize the limited space for all the stuff that he wants to store in it, and the activities he wants to do inside the garage. Also, look for shops and institutions where you can send or dispose of the tools and machines that no longer serve their purpose.
Upgrade the garage for a more comfortable experience
As your dad could be spending more time in the garage, make sure that he will be comfortable staying there. If you are looking into incorporating extra amenities like a fridge, television, sound system, or boosting WiFi reception, and while these sound absolutely great, do not forget to upgrade the most basic features like the garage lighting, insulation, and climate control systems, and garage flooring. Lighting inside the garage plays a huge role in setting the mood and functionality of the space. Bad garage lighting will make it look drab and dark, and definitely not conducive for workshop activities. It could lead to injuries, which we do not want to happen. Install energy-efficient LED lighting fixtures to brighten up the space while conserving energy and saving money on utility costs. Most dads will be using the garage all year round. So whether it is scorching hot in the summer or freezing cold during wintertime, make sure that the garage has good insulation. Moreover, you should install cooling and heating systems to enhance your dad’s comfort level in the garage. Not only are these useful for your dad’s comfort and safety, but a good temperature and insulation system can also help maintain the conditions of the car and tools and other stored items he has in the garage.
Maximize the space with efficient storage system
Not only do effective storage systems make your dad’s garage life easier, but they can also help maintain a tidy and organized garage. The trend nowadays among garage owners is utilizing overhead garage storage racks and wall-mounted shelves. Maximizing the ceiling and walls is great for freeing up valuable floor space. More floor space means more breathing room for parking vehicles and doing workshop activities. One such efficient and the sturdy rack is the Fleximounts GR48M Pro 4′ X 8′ Overhead Garage Storage Rack is built with heavy-duty in mind, as the reinforced hanging garage storage wire deck design guarantees a high loading capacity of up to 800 lbs. But you need not worry because the quality construction of this rack assures safe and high loading capacity. For added stability and safety, the ample vertical supports longer ceiling brackets and a larger contact surface. The screws that are included in the package are thicker compared to the others available in the market and went through strict tests to assure the quality of the hardware. Moreover, the rack is also waterproof, which protects the stored items from getting damaged due to water or liquid leakage in your garage. The GR48M offers flexible installation as you can practically mount the garage ceiling storage racks nearly anywhere. With Fleximounts smart joist configuration, you can mount the rack in both wood and concrete at any position–perpendicular, parallel, and even on slanted ceilings. Just make sure that you maintain 48-in. Distance in between the vertical posts. Use a stud finder to locate the joists if the ceiling is finished with drywall. What’s more is that the garage rack can easily be expanded with hooks and clamps to store more items like bikes, tools, cables, and more. The hardware and materials necessary to build the rack such as the rack parts and screws are already in the package. Also included are the installation instructions and template to help with the do-it-yourself construction of the rack. You do not need to fret as the instructions are easy to follow. Although basic knowledge when using the hardware is a big plus, newbies can still construct the rack in no time.
