Do you know that decorating the garage with storage rack is possible? It is possible if you use stencilled rack on the wall. Choose stencil on the colors you like, adjusting to your interior style and appeal. Hang a stencil board, about ½ x 1 ½ meters size, and put on a frame.
Then, categorize your stuff and hang each category on one specific stencilled rack. While it makes the garage a lot tidier, it will look nice, like a wall decor. Try wooden frame for a little class.
4. Movie Room
The best thing about a garage is that you can always spare extra room for other purposes. This time, you should consider adding a movie room inside. It takes a little effort to make sections in the garage but you don’t need to border the sections with anything.
Just set up one side of the wall and bold your movie set on the wall. Add a rug, a couch, and a little table nearby. Adding a little padding on the garage wall is also wise to make sure neighbours aren’t disturbed by the sound later.
5. Garage with Bar
Who doesn’t love a bar every now and then? Instead of leaving one side of the garage empty and clutters start to fill it, work on some organizing for your tools and stuffs on the either side of the room. Spare one wall of the garage and build booze rack and shelves on it.
For a complete bar look, add the bar table with stools and the accessories. Every time you invite the neighbour for a drink and a little chat, you don’t have to invite them inside.
6. Home Office in the Garage
This is another day of making over your garage. If your garage happens to be vacant all the time with nothing to do in it, you can transform all the room as a home office. Instead, you can take a section of your garage and remaking it. Use the tall shelves as book shelves after refinishing it with different color.
Take a section of the working table as your office table. Add comfortable chair and reading lamp for more elaborated office. Rugs and wall paintings should be added too to make contrast difference with your garage section.
7. Your Own Gym
