Finished Garage: The Benefits of Starting Now
The garage is probably not the first place you think that needs upgrading in your house. For most people, it is simply the place to keep your cars. Perhaps it is used for storage purposes or to keep work out equipment. Either way, it doesn’t seem like a space that needs a lot of care and attention. More importantly, it doesn’t seem like something that can increase your home value.
In reality, though, finished garages can add thousands of dollars of value to your home. In this article, we will go over what elements you can add to your own garage to not only increase the value of your home, but also make the entire space more livable. By the end of your garage renovation, the space will be unrecognizable.
The Value is in the Details
You don’t have to tear out the walls and floors of your garage and do months of work in order to make your garage valuable. Small things can take your garage from a grungy hole to your new favorite space. Here are just a few tips from our professionals.
Epoxy flooring has been taking over the flooring industry. It is great for garages, warehouses, and other areas with high-traffic and high-toxicity. It is especially great for garages because it is easy on your tires and incredibly durable. Even more, oil spills are a breeze to clean up with epoxy flooring. With concrete, things such as oil stains are forever problems.
There are also a lot of design options when it comes to choosing your epoxy floor. You will no longer have to look at the cookie-cutter concrete that sits in the home of every neighbor down the street. Instead, your colorful and shiny epoxy will look back at you with a sparkle.
Make It Work for You
The most important part of finishing your garage is making the space work for you. Garages are extremely customizable outside of just choosing wall and floor colors. Consider what you want your garage to function as. Are you looking for a space to keep your gym equipment? Somewhere to show off your cars? Or maybe you need storage for all your kid’s outdoor equipment. Maybe you want to do something different and make your office space a lounge area! Each of these options require a completely different set-up, which you can set up while finishing your garage.
If you are simply looking to add value to your home, do some research into what is in demand in your area. This way, you are putting your money toward what the people really want and will get paid the most for doing so. For example, if you live in an area with a lot of children, for example, storage space is probably in demand.
