Do you enjoy spending time in your garage, or is it a musty and damp space that’s functional, but unappealing? 

Good garage decor isn’t as easy as decorating the rest of your home. Learning how to design a garage means that you have to learn how to prioritize function while still making your space look great.

We’re here to offer a few garage design tips to help you out. Read on to learn all about functional garage design.

Create Multi-Use Spaces

What do you use your garage for? Does it store your cars? Is it your own personal project workshop?

Regardless, if you want to make the most of your space, create a few multi-use spaces within your garage to make it more functional and aesthetically appealing.

Consider several things that you need your garage for. How can you combine them? 

If you want to have an area to work on building projects, but someone else in your household wants to use the garage as an art studio or exercise area, consider using a foldable workbench. This way, you’ll be able to do your projects and still leave space for what other people want to do. 

If you want to exercise in your garage, but you still need to store your car there, invest in compact exercise options such as rings, a stackable dumbbell set, and stackable exercise steps that you can tuck away when necessary.

Optimize Your Storage

Speaking of tucking things away, make sure that you’ve optimized your garage storage. If you don’t want your garage to be a cluttered mess, fix it!

Use wall space and the space above your garage door to your advantage. Above your garage door, you can place items that you don’t need often, such as holiday decorations. Make sure that your garage door is in good condition before you start setting up your storage area by looking into professional garage door repair.

On the walls, use shelves and labeled cubbies. Cubbies make it easy to stack boxes of items in a way that won’t leave you struggling to extract them when you need them.

You can also hang things like bikes, kayaks, and tools on the wall to keep them out of the way. 

Improve Your Flooring

Does your garage floor need an update? If it has stains and cracks, why not upgrade it to something sleek, shiny, and new? 

Vinyl and epoxy floors for garages are affordable and popular. They look great and they’re still functional enough to stand up to wear and tear. They come in a variety of colors, so you can make your garage look like a legitimate room of your house without having to sacrifice functionality. 

Improve Your Garage Decor and Design

Garage decor isn’t like the decor in the rest of your house unless your garage functions as a living space. In the garage, you want to make sure that you prioritize form over function. That doesn’t mean that you can’t keep your space neat and tidy!

Try these tips to make your garage a space that you’ll love to spend time in.
