Your residential garage is certainly the largest heated room of the house. As such, it is more than desirable to get the best out of it. Remodelling your garage contributes to enhance the value of your property. More often than not seen as a junk room, the residential garage is in fact a continuation of your home even in many cases the main entrance of the house for those who choose to park their vehicles there. Most owners will enjoy a clean, convenient and easy to access storage space.
A little bit like the recipe for a Shepherd Pie i.e. “Minced Meat, Corn and Mashed Potatoes”, the recipe for a garage remodelling requires three essential ingredients: “Ceiling, Walls, Floor”. Let’s have a look at these three surfaces often neglected or at least not as much considered as they should.
Easier said than done. The traditional roof box, like a Thule, is not the easiest item to store in a garage. There is really no storage system designed for that purpose by the manufacturers of these boxes. Even if they are not heavy, these boxes are especially large.
Winter is the perfect season to highlight the lack of adequate storage solutions in your garage. The fact that your vehicles are parked inside exacerbates this reality. They quickly becomes dirty making walking around perilous for anyone wanting to keep his clothes clean. Not to mention items left on the floor who did not find any storage space and are threatened by a wet floor, dirty and difficult to maintain.
Designing a residential garage is the same as designing any room in your house. A good knowledge of your needs ease the planning of the space offered by any given room. A good knowledge of your physical interaction in a room also contributes to better plan its use. Depending on whether you are left or right handed, for example, could take the planning of your garage in a more consistent direction with the way you operate in the space. We all have our way of doing things and the importance we attached to it.
It is not enough said, but there is a fundamental difference between doing your garage yourself versus having it designed and customized by a residential garage professional like Espace Garage Plus.
