Turn Your Garage Space into a Living Space
(ARA) Ė No matter how big your house is, there never seems to be enough room for everything. Whether itís space for hobbies, recreation or just more storage, most of us could use more of it.
What if you could gain more space without an expensive addition? One of the latest trends in home remodeling is to make the garage usable for all kinds of activities. By updating and organizing the space, and adding different kinds of flooring, you can turn this area into a lot more than a home for your car.
Here are a few ideas for making the most of your garage:
* Wall space is your friend. Peg boards and plank walls allow you to hang bikes, hoses or wheelbarrows. Getting things off the floor is the priority.
* Think of organizing your garage as you do your kitchen. With adequate shelving and cupboards, everything will have a place to be stored and you can easily keep track of tools and gear. Arranging tool storage adjacent to your garage freezer or other large items creates counter space for working on projects.
* If you enjoy working out, but are tired of having exercise equipment in your living room, set it up in your garage or basement. One option that will make it easier and safer is custom Active Tile modular flooring from trafficMASTER. The tiles provide the shock absorbent, skid resistant surface thatís perfect for exercising and using weights. Set up half of your garage with Active Tile for the workout area and half the garage with Garage Tile and youíve created a multi-use space.
* For the auto enthusiast, you can create a stand-alone floor for under your vehicle, which will make working on the car a much more comfortable experience. The specially designed Garage Drain Tile drains water down through holes and out of the garage. You can hose down your work area and not worry about water damage to anything in your work space.
*If bad-weather blues have the kids cooped up in the house, set up a game room with a basketball hoop, a foosball table or game table. With a hanging TV and sound system, you have a space for fun that is out of the elements. A comfortable Active Tile floor underfoot makes it all possible.
Designed to be placed over an existing floor or hard surface, trafficMASTER Garage Tile, Drain Tile and Active Tile modular flooring is easily installed without adhesives. Unlike any other product available, the tiles offer an easy-to-use option for the do-it-yourselfer who wants to make the most of their garage space.
