Many great things have been done in a garage. Bands have perfected their songs, businesses have built themselves from the ground up, and gorgeous works of art have been put together, all from a place as unassuming as a garage. We’ve gathered some of the ways you can use your garage to get the gears in your mind turning. At Floor Coatings USA, we specialize in garage flooring that will help you pursue your projects to your heart’s content. Call us today to get a free quote on your garage floor.

Parking Your Car

Maybe it seems obvious, but using your garage to park your car actually has benefits you might overlook. If you hate going out early in the winter morning to scrape the ice off your windshield, you can avoid the weather by keeping your car in the garage. That’ll keep it warmer as well, which means you won’t have to run your car to heat it up, reducing the amount of exhaust you’re releasing into the atmosphere. Additionally, when you park your car in the garage, you’re able to keep it safe from vandalism and theft, which is far more common with street parking and even leaving the car in the driveway.

Workshop

With garages having the largest square footage of any room in your house, it makes them ideal for big projects that need a lot of space. No matter if you’re an amateur woodworker who likes to work on personal projects on the weekend or a professional carpenter doing your job on a daily basis, it is important to have enough room to store and use large tools such as a table saw or router. Beyond woodworking, many people use their garage as a place to work on their car or prepare for a landscaping project that’ll beautify their home.

Storage

As we go through our lives, we accumulate a lot of stuff. Sometimes it’s a tote filled with childhood memories, other times it’s a set of golf clubs that you only get to use a few times a year. Instead of cluttering up your home with things that don’t get much use, you can use your garage for storage of these items. This will keep your belongings safe, yet out of the way, and help you avoid paying for a costly storage unit that is tough to access when you need something. You can even install a special storage area, similar to an attic, that will allow you to store items while using your garage for other projects.

Studio

Artists thrive on having their own dedicated workspace, and there are few better places to do that than in the garage. Whether they’re musicians, painters, writers, sculptors, or podcasters, having a place to go to away from the hustle and bustle of daily life lets them work on their passion. Others use their garage as a place to work out since it is typically a wide-open and flat space that they can do a lot in. Many others have started their own businesses, right from inside their garage, with Apple, Amazon, and Google all stemming from such humble beginnings.

There are so many ways you can use your garage, but it’s important that you protect it to avoid damage. With Floor Coatings USA, we can apply special flooring to your garage to make it stronger, chemical resistant, and customized to your liking with many different colors.
