Now that the weather is warming up, everyone is turning their attention outdoors. The sun is out longer each day, the temperatures are climbing, and our yards are slowly evolving from yellow-gray to fresh green. What’s on your Spring To-Do List? Spring cleaning? A new project in your yard? Buying new outdoor sports supplies? The list might be long and overwhelming. It’s a good idea to start somewhere that will not only have immediate impact, but will also help you with all of your other spring plans: your garage.
Your garage is such a focal point for all of your activities, and it gets daily use. Therefore it makes sense to tackle your garage first before worrying about your yard, household cleaning, or outdoor sports and activities. So we recommend Three Garage Upgrades for Better Functionality:
- Most garages are unpainted, and just an unfinished backdrop of drywall. Adding a fresh coat of paint can make your garage more than just a glorified shed. Basic white always works, but you can also choose a more interesting color to keep things fresh. Frame and hang your favorite movie posters, flags, paraphernalia of your favorite sports team, and anything else that will make you happy when you pull in.
- Epoxy Flooring. The real upgrade to make to your garage is one that not only looks amazing, but will improve the function of your garage while ALSO lasting forever. Epoxy flooring is the obvious choice. The colors, coating, and protection make your garage look instantly like a showroom floor. The epoxy coating fights oil stains and damage, while also providing a perfect surface for your car, your work bench, and any other projects for your garage.
- There are so many options when it comes to garage storage. If you have room at the front or on the sides of your garage you can find great freestanding shelving units. There are also easy-to-install wall-mounted shelves or storage boxes. Another great option is to mount shelves or hook racks from the ceiling of your garage. This is preferable especially if your garage is narrow or shallow – you can utilize the vertical space!
This spring take an extra few hours to prepare your garage for all the upcoming projects you plan to tackle by completing one (or all) of these simple upgrades! If you need help with your garage or concrete anywhere else on your property call Hard Rock Concrete Coatings.
