If you have a garage and it hasn’t been upgraded since you moved into your home years ago then you have probably noticed that there are few things that you would like to change about it. There are few things that you might need to change such as the garage door and storage, amongst others.
Before you upgrade your garage, first make a list of what you want to do. Here are some tips for upgrading your garage.
- Repair cracked walls. If the walls have slight cracks in them, use Polyfilla to insert into the cracks to fill it then smooth the surface of the wall.
- Paint the walls. The paint may be faded or it could be dirty from the years of wear. If there are any areas where the paint is cracked and lifting off the wall, check if the walls are damp. If they are damp, remove the paint from the walls and wait for it to dry. Summer would be the ideal time to do this. The heat should dry the walls quickly. Next, apply damp seal on the wall and wait for it to dry. Then you can paint the walls the desired colour. Opt for a paint that is durable and easy to clean so that it can last longer.
- Revamp storage space. If you are like most people, your garage probably has a lot of clutter. Clear out everything that you don’t need or use anymore. Unpack everything and decide on a storage solution based on what you have. You could build in a cupboard or you can have shelves on the walls. Make sure that it is practical to your daily life. You could make your own shelves or you could buy it, it’s up to you.
- Repaint the garage door leading into the house. If you have a small entry door to your garage and it leads into the house, then it is probably not in a bad condition because it is not exposed to rain. It may only need a fresh coat of paint to look good as new.
Replace the main garage door. You may want to replace the main garage door because it is either old or no longer functioning properly. Or maybe you want a new modern garage door. A wooden garage door with an interesting design or with some glass designs could give your home a great new look. Because this is such a large door, it will certainly give a facelift to the front of your home.
