Do You Love Your Garage? You Should!

Do you love your garage? Do you even think about your garage at all? Sure, it is the place where you park your car every day and store your bicycles, but do you really think about all the greatness that your garage provides? Probably, not. It is one of those spaces in the house that you simply pass through, not giving it a second thought.

If you are one of those Pinterest-loving organizers, then maybe you have thought about your garage. Perhaps you have even created a custom storage system that is the envy of all your neighbors. Good for you!

However, if you are like the rest of us, then it is time to shake things up and start giving your garage some real consideration. Here are 5 things that should make you fall in love with your garage... or at least give it more than a passing thought.

Your Garage Adds Value to Your Home

Having a garage gives you a cozy space to keep your vehicle out of the elements, and it can give you a lot of room for storing those holiday decorations. If you have a front-facing garage door, it can also represent between 30 and 45% of your home’s façade. This makes it a huge part of your home, and it may even be one of the largest rooms in the house. A front-facing garage door is a definite factor in your home’s curb appeal.

If you don’t already love your garage door, then you can easily upgrade it to one that is more in line with your style. The door you choose can actually complement your home and add to its appearance. Having a gorgeous, well-organized garage can be a real asset to your home’s value when it comes time to sell!

Your garage protects your belongings

What are the two biggest purchases you are likely to make in your life? Number one will be your home, hands down. Then the second will likely be your car. Having a garage is one way to keep your second most valuable purchase safe from rain, snow, wind, and vandalism. Your garage actually protects your belongings, and that can be more than just a car!

Many people have very expensive hobbies that require them to buy very expensive equipment. These could be top of the line bicycles or woodworking tools, whatever items you may purchase to further your free-time activities, can also be protected in your garage.

You can also use your garage as a major storage place in your home, and this will mean it is packed full of items that you need to keep safe and protected from the elements.

Your garage provides a walkway

Nearly 70% of homeowners with attached garages use it as the primary entrance to the home. The garage allows you to keep yourself safe and dry when it is raining out, and it also allows you to get out of your care in relative safety.

If you have a well-maintained garage that is organized nicely, then it can great you when you arrive home each day. Plus, you won’t have to kick boxes of recycling to get from your car to the door.

Your garage can keep you safe

Since the garage generally becomes the storage facility for many items in your home, it is important that you clean it out regularly to ensure that it is keeping you safe and sound

You do not want to put a lot of potentially hazardous or flammable materials in your garage because that would be a true safety hazard. Plus, you don’t want to put any food items that are not completely sealed because you do not want to attract vermin.

If you keep your garage clean and well-maintained, it can keep you safe and healthy!

You can really enjoy yourself in your garage

Your garage can become the space in your home where you practice all of your hobbies. You can turn it into a recording studio where your band can practice. It can be rearranged into a video game playing den, and it can be outfitted to hold all of your crafting supplies.

Your garage doesn’t have to be the place where you store your car; it can easily be the extra room in your house that allows you to embrace your inner artist!
