Do you remember your childhood garage? It was dark, airless, and greasy. The floor had oil stains and the rafters were full of cobwebs. The only person who wanted to spend any length of time out there was your dad.
It was always either too cold in the winter or stifling hot in the summer. You had no idea what was hiding in the stacks of worn out cardboard boxes and it took forever to make a path to get your bike out for a ride. You were careful not to move the oldest boxes away from the wall because you never knew what critters might be hiding back there. No wonder your mom always sent your dad out there to find stuff.
Today’s garage is more of a family affair. The up-to-date garage has morphed into a craft room, a game storage place, and the perfect place for your sports equipment. The modern garage is well lit and well organized. You don’t have to wonder what is in all of the mystery boxes because there are quality wire baskets and handy labels that identify the contents.
The rickety homemade shelves are a thing of the past too. Remember taking your life in your hands trying to climb to the top to see what was hidden up there? Today your kids will only have to open up some perfectly placed cupboards to find their baseball mitts or board games.
Many stay at home parents are bringing in a little extra income with entrepreneurial home businesses. The remodeled garage is a great place to set up a small business space. One corner of your garage can be arranged for crafting of any kind. With handy electrical outlets and counters with sturdy and washable tops, your garage can be the beginning of great things.
It is time to consider the garage as an extension of your home, rather than an unsightly catch-all for random items that you don’t know what to do with. Make use of this large space for your whole family. Look at it with fresh eyes. What changes can you make that will transform the garage into a more usable and enjoyable part of your home?
