No matter how large or small your house is, you may struggle with finding enough entertainment space. Fortunately, you don’t have to knock down walls to create a more open-concept or invest in an addition to increase your entertainment space or make your home more versatile. Instead, look to your garage as the entertaining space your house needs.
Using your garage as an entertainment space is quite trendy right now, and for good reason. A garage space is typically attached to the home, is easily accessible, and is large enough to be used as overflow for your large party or as the perfect spot to watch the next Bears game. Here’s how to upgrade your garage and begin using it as an entertainment space quickly, and for a less cost than a typical home project.
Add Lighting and Electrical
Entertaining spaces need lighting and access to electricity, so start your garage upgrades there. Look for lighting systems that are beautiful and useful, staying away from the typical fluorescent light that traditional garages are known for. Add electrical access so you can easily plug in and mount a television or stereo system while still having a place to plug in your drill or other tools.
Upgrade Your Floor
You can’t choose flooring in your garage that isn’t practical for the space, but you certainly don’t have to have your guests freeze while standing on cold concrete. Instead, choose an epoxy flooring that looks amazing and is durable enough to handle your car traffic. Epoxy floors make a big impact without a major cost, and the process is quick so that you can enjoy it sooner than later.
Upgrade Your Storage
Your garage is likely a big storage space for your property. When you choose to upgrade your garage so that you can use it as an entertaining space, you will need to get rid of those old shelving units and plastic bins. Instead, invest in durable but beautiful floor to ceiling storage cabinets that will keep your holiday decorations tucked away while you host your next party.
