Maybe you’ve noticed because we certainly have – more than ever people are choosing to invest in their garages, making them look nicer, and treating them like part of their homes. And it’s not hard to see why. We’ve grown tired of treating our garages like passive spaces to park our cars. We see the value in having more space. Housing prices can go up, but our garages are still there, waiting for us to invest our time and love into their flooring, painting, organization and so on.
Perhaps the biggest bonus of investing in our garages is that doing so will make our lives easier in the long run. Don’t believe it? Check out these reasons to invest in your garage space.
Increases the value of your home.
Investing in your garage adds value to your home. It’s a part of your home so adding value to it, like adding value to any part of your house, will make it worth more in the long run, should you ever decide to sell or rent.
Because garages can easily be converted into many different uses (eg gyms, playrooms, art studios), there’s never a reason not to invest in your garage. Keep it in good shape and add instant value to your home. Invest in proper flooring, recent paint touch-ups and so on so you and your loved ones can better enjoy it.
Extra storage space
Having a garage is not only an opportunity to invest in an extra space for your hobby, it’s a great way to have easy and cheap storage accessible to you. Storage spaces can be expensive. Through proper organization, your garage can be an excellent source of storage for you and family and friends. Some people are even renting their garage out for storage to locals!
Nobody wants to have a party in the garage –unless the garage is a super sweet hangout spot manicured to perfection. Love having guests over but need a new space to host? Well have you ever thought of refurbishing your garage? Garages can be a great entertainment option for having friends over, whether it be family gatherings or just guy time.
Invest in the makeup of your garage, the ornaments, the flooring, the paint job, and make your garage a place that people are going to be asking to come back to. Put in a mini fridge, a billiards table, ping pong: whatever you think is fun. People will be begging to come back to your garage after the weekend party.
You don’t have to go on a weekend camping trip to get alone time. Having a well kept garage space can allow you the convenience of an easily accessible private space. Keep it well conditioned and in great shape so it’s aesthetically pleasing to be in and comfortable.
Stash couches, chairs, some of your favorite reading –or put in a workbench and weld away your cares in the privacy and luxury of your very own space.
As you can see, there are plenty of reasons to invest in your garage. And it’s an investment that will pay back to you emotionally and financially.
