Forget the House: What about the dream garage?
3 Must-have garage features to include in your custom home or remodel
The garage isn’t just a place to park cars; It’s storage, a workspace and often a hangout area. The garage isn’t just an extension of your house, it’s an extension of your lifestyle. Whether you’re building a custom home or remodeling, there’s some must-have amenities that you may consider.
Having designated storage areas can help keep your garage and house clutter-free. Cabinets, shelving, pegboards and overhead storage can help maximize your garage space and keep you and your family organized. Your garage storage can store your holiday décor, tools, household overstock, and bikes and other recreational toys in a tidy, secure, and concealed way.
If someone in your household works on cars, gardens, or just does household projects, then a designated shop space in more than a desire, it’s a necessity. A designated shop space will keep your projects from migrating to your living space or becoming unorganized. When planning your shop space consider how many electrical outlets you’ll need, if a car lift or car inspection pit would make your hobby safer and easier, and if you’ll need space for mowers or other lawn maintenance equipment.
Yes, a garage is a space to get work done, but it’s also a place to relax and socialize. After spending long hours in your garage, a comfortable place to sit and cold drink is exactly what you and guests will be craving. Equip your garage with a couch, barstools, tables, fridge, and wet bar to make your custom garage a comfortable hangout. If you don’t want to miss a second of the game, mount a flat screen TV and surround-sound system. You can be simple or grand with the style of your garage entertainment space.
