Garages tend to be piled with clutter. By transforming it and adding a system of shelves and cabinets, you get many benefits. One of the many is the rise in property value. We talked about all the reasons why excellent storage is important below. Read ahead.
Increased Curb Appeal
You’re probably going to be selling your home in the distant future. You’d want to do everything in your power to raise its value up. Something easy that would help would be improving your garage.
Although you’re on the fence about revamping how organized it is, buyers are all about garages that have storage systems. The more intricate and better looking the shelves and cabinets are, the more interested buyers would be.
Stay on Top of Things
Garages are great; they’re the ideal place to store items that you can’t keep inside of your home. But not having them stored properly would make it hard to get to them when you need them. Good garage shelving would prevent this. The space would not be a sight for sore eyes either.
You’ll also keep your family safe. As the garage is away from the rest of the home, you might be storing power tools in it. If you have kids around, they could find them and get hurt. Storage solutions keep the items locked and separate.
Embrace the Beautiful Floor
Believe it or not, the floors a home has would influence how much it’d be able to sell for, and how fast it would get sold. Buyers love quality hard-wood.
Take a look at your garage. There may be quality granite or stone on its floor. Unfortunately, as the space is not organized well, it’s cramped, which results in the floor not shining as well as it could.
Have a Work Area
You can go all out and purchase a car lift. It would suspend your vehicle, allowing for more room in the vicinity. With the area cleared up, why not make it an office? You could make it a game-room too.
Personally, the best thing you could transform it to would be a gym. A home gym is something that’d really raise property value.
How Many Vehicles Do You Own?
Your garage may be small, so there’s barely enough space to park more than 1 vehicle. A car lift would make your car take up vertical room. You can now purchase the second or third vehicle you always wanted.
Just know that the lifts can be pricey. Think of them as investments.
Keep Your Garage Safe
If the space is not organized, there might be less than ideal wiggle room. You could bump your car into the wall or drop a tool on your vehicle. Who’d want that?
So, what did you think about everything we said? Doing your garage up and improving its storage is a very smart move. To begin with, you’ll be making it more appealing to future buyers. With everything tucked away, you can use the extra leg-room to transform the garage into a work area or a garage.
