What to Do Before You Can Have Your Dream Garage

Jun 29, 2022
People dream of extravagant garages. They think of living in mansions and having a garage that can house a hundred cars. Or if not that grand, they at least want a garage to serve many functions for them aside from storing their cars. They’d want a garage where they can host intimate events or prepare a romantic dinner with their partner. They’d want a garage where they can exercise and break some sweat. They’d want a garage where they can keep their athletic gear and/or have their own roller skating rink. They’d want a garage where they can have their own workshop—be it for their sculptures, pottery, crafts, or woodworks. Or if they have a start-up business, they’d want a space where they can set up shop for the meantime to house their inventory or where they can cook up ideas for their next collection or marketing campaign. Except for a huge garage with a hundred cars, you don’t really need much to have your dream garage. You can even just make changes with your garage at the moment and you can already make that dream a reality. So instead of just dreaming or aspiring for one, start planning out how you can upgrade your clean garage and clean and organize the items it houses. As per usual, you can’t skip the decluttering phase. You go on hoarding items and over time, you realize they don’t really have any use for you. Get rid of the items that you no longer need by selling or donating them or giving them to your relatives and friends. If they’re not working or cannot be used anymore, discard them instead of keeping trash in your garage. After decluttering, you have to allot time to clean your garage from ceiling to bottom. Sweep away all the dust and mop the ceiling and the floor. Check corners and walls for cracks and holes. Decide if any area needs a painting job. If you can’t do some repairs by yourself, call an expert or a professional to help you out. You can install insulation if you deem that you need that in your garage. Once you’ve ticked off all the basics, it’s now time to organize the items you’ll keep so that you are able to maximize the storing capacity of your garage and leave the floor open for all the many uses it can serve you. We listed down storage units from FlexiSpot that you can install before you can breathe life into your dream garage:
