From gardening tools and sports equipment to kiddie gear and seasonal outdoor decor, a garage can quickly fill up with chaotic clutter. But with a little DIY elbow grease and creativity, it’s easy to transform the space into a fun and functionally organized area of your home, and give your neighbours a serious case of garage envy. Here’s how:
Consider the garage an extension of your interior
Just because the garage isn’t inside your home, you don’t have to pass up introducing finishes and a colour scheme that act as an extension of your existing interior. Consider drywalling, adding a fresh coat of neutral paint and installing rubberized baseboards to make it feel like an additional room. You can even add personality with a fun accent hue like this yellow to update mundane elements like bike and tire racks.
