5 Brilliant Ideas for Finishing Your Garage

While your garage does a great job at housing your cars, you often look at it as a potential source for more living space. The cars do just fine in the driveway, and that garage would make a great man cave. Instead of wondering what your garage would look like with a makeover, it is time to get some professional advice and put your ideas into motion.

Handyman Connection of Boise can give you the itemized estimate you need on your garage finishing project. Whether you are going for more living space or you want to create the garage of your dreams, we can make it all happen.


5 Garage Finishing Ideas That Will Level Up Your Space


1. Stamp or Stain the Concrete Floor

Concrete floor technology has come a long way, and it is now possible to make that garage floor shine like marble at a cost you can afford. If you plan on putting a new concrete floor into your garage, then consider getting the concrete stamped and stained to look like real brick. You can also work with the floor you have by getting it professionally cleaned and stained to look like a pure, marble surface.

2. Go Solar

If you intend to turn your garage into a living space, then you will want to think about having a solar power system installed to offset the costs of electricity.

A living space will utilize power for lights, refrigerators, televisions and anything else people need to feel comfortable.

A solar power system will help to keep the electric bill down in the garage, and it will also help to raise the value of your home.

3. Decorative Barn Doors

If you plan on remodeling your garage and parking the cars in the driveway, then a great idea for filling up the garage door space is to install decorative barn doors.

You can get them made to fit your garage door opening perfectly, and you can paint them to match the interior and exterior decor of your finished garage.

4. Install Some Skylights

Garages are notorious for being built without reliable sources of natural light. The one or two small windows that are currently in your garage are not going to do much to flood it with the natural light you want and need.

Skylights will allow you to get all of the natural light you need and save money on your electric bill. Skylights can also be great viewing entertainment for those clear, starry nights, or during a rainstorm as the raindrops pelt against the glass.

5. Install Networking and Stereo Wiring

When people finish their garages, they often take advantage of the bare walls to install electrical wiring and plumbing before the drywall goes up. But you can also use that opportunity to install stereo ports, Internet network connections and stereo speakers into your wall as well.

Instead of going in and tearing your new walls up to install your entertainment wiring and components, you should get the job done before the drywall is put in place.
