Your Garage Is Capable Of More Than Just Vehicle Storage

By Connor Sullivan

If you are a homeowner, you may have felt the squeeze of having limited space. It may be you are running out of space to store the things that have a tendency to pile up over the years, or you may be struggling to fit all of your family members comfortably into the current living space you have. Maybe you need a space in which to work or perform your hobby and there are no other available rooms inside your home. The good news is, those with a garage already have a solution. Your garage is the place where you store your vehicles. There may be some storage space or a little room left over for tools and cleaning items. If this is the only purpose your garage serves, you are missing out on precious square feet of space available to you. Even if things seemed cramped with the cars or other vehicles, there are probably things you can do to create additional space for whatever you need inside of the garage. The first step is to create the right lighting and climate. This will mean different things depending on whether you are planning to create living space or storage space, but in either case, changes will be necessary. If you currently use fluorescent lighting in the garage, be sure the T5 ballast and electronic ballasts are working and that you have adequate lighting in the space.

More lighting may be needed or you may need to install a window in one or more of the walls to let in natural light. Then make sure you have the right levels of heating and cooling.

For temporary or seasonal use, you can use portable heating and cooling elements. If you are looking for a more permanent solution, you may be able to install various heating and cooling methods.

After the shell of comfort has been created, you can begin to design the space you need. If it is additional storage, you can use shelving and cabinets to expand storage.

Shop at department stores, build them yourself, or purchase second storage online or at garage sales. If you are planning to expand your living space into the garage, you can find furnishings from these same locations. Many of the pieces you find at garage and rummage sales may need some TLC but can be just as comfortable and sturdy as brand new pieces. This space should be treated like any living space and you should include furnishings, accessories, and anything else needed to make the space livable. This includes accessories like cozy throws, artwork, flooring, plants, and entertainment.

Connor R. Sullivan recently started purchasing lighting supplies such as a T5 ballast online because of the convenience. He replaced his Electronic Ballasts in his office to become more energy efficient.
