1. Finish Your Flooring

One of the most versatile and cost-effective design choices for your garage is getting finished flooring. Epoxy garage floor coatings provide a durable and impermeable coating on your garage floor that can stand up to daily foot traffic and most chemicals. Since experts pour it to install it, hardened epoxy garage coatings form a seamless resin layer that will protect the concrete base for many years to come. 

Epoxy flooring in your garage is both functional and decorative, with several options for colors and designs. For example, you can select colors and textures that mimic granite and tile. Epoxy is also low upkeep and is easy to clean and maintain. 

2. Think About Cabinetry

A high-quality cabinet system can further enhance usability and increase your garage’s value. Homeowners have several options for cabinets, including wood, metal, plywood, and composite. Whatever you choose, make sure you opt for something high-quality that will last for many years to come. 

Think about cabinet layouts as well. Cabinets should go where they are most accessible. For example, you can keep your tools in cabinets near your main worktable. Cabinets and drawers not only increase functionality but look streamlined and aesthetically pleasing. 

3. Update Your Garage Door

Updating your garage door can also contribute to your garage space and enhance home value. Some common modern materials for garage doors include:

  • Wood
  • Steel
  • Aluminum
  • Composite
  • Fiberglass
  • Vinyl

If your garage door is old, updating it with new energy-efficient materials can also reduce your monthly heating and cooling bills. You can also buy additional insulation to minimize energy loss through your garage door. Replacing your garage door with new insulated materials can reduce energy loss by as much as 70%. 

The typical garage door lasts about 30 years, depending on materials and maintenance. Even if your garage door isn’t showing signs of aging, replacing it can still be a good idea to increase your home’s value and save money in the long run. 

4. Color Schemes

In terms of the big picture, you need a cohesive color design for your garage. Floor paint, walls, and cabinetry should all match or complement one another. You can also color your garage according to a theme. For example, if you are a fan of Formula 1 racing, you can incorporate blacks, reds, and whites into your overall color scheme. 

Most garages stick with neutral colors like browns, tans, grays, and beige. However, you can get as creative as you want with color schemes. You can also choose to incorporate designs and patterns on your walls and ceiling. The possibilities are only as limited as your imagination. 

5. Get Help From Experts

When designing your garage, you might want to make it a DIY project. It is completely possible to design and implement your dream garage, but we recommend hiring a professional to help with the major installations, like flooring and cabinetry. Experts understand the finer points of garage design and can help you create a functional and attractive space.  

Hiring an expert also ensures that you’ll get long-lasting results that will withstand frequent use. For example, if you mess up installing an epoxy floor, it will take a lot of time and money to strip the surface and reapply a second coating. Hiring an expert ensures you get professional quality results that will stand the test of time.  

Also, many installation companies offer warranties for all equipment and labor. So you can have peace of mind knowing that you have protection in the event of malfunctions.
