Garages are walled structures constructed specifically for the storage of vehicles. Designed as either attached or detached spaces, residential garages often have spaces for one or two cars, but can expand as desired on larger projects. Garages today typically include garage doors that operate on overhead tracks with wireless remotes for convenient access. Garages also protect vehicles from the weather, making them useful and flexible indoor/outdoor rooms for a variety of home activities that require additional covered space.

What are the factors to consider when designing a garage layout?

The first factor to consider when designing a garage layout is function. What will be the purpose of the garage in addition to storing a vehicle? Layouts can center around vehicle protection, a workshop space, and additional storage for building and outdoor recreational equipment. The car size, the number of cars, and whether the garage is attached or unattached impacts the design of the layout as well.

What types of options are there for garage storage?

The types of options for garage storing include: cabinets, shelves, racks, and tool chests. Shelving can be wall or ceiling mounted or a standalone unit. There are also different kinds of racks depending on the use or activity such as for kayaking, biking, fishing, and other sports.

How do you convert a garage into a workshop?

The overall design and transformation of a garage into a workshop ultimately depends on the availability of space and the kind of work that will take place. Tasks to undergo in this process include: implementing insulation for temperature regulation, installing electrical circuits for shop use only, ensure proper illumination rather than reliance on a single bulb, and configuring the right workbench, seating, and tool storage.
