Imagine that one day you happen upon a completely new room in your home that you hadn’t seen before. What would you do with the space? Your mind would likely run wild with all the possibilities.
However, you might not have realized that you already have an area in your home with such potential—your garage. Find out all the simple and easy ways to upgrade your garage.
Insulate the Space
We all know how cold our garages can get during winter and how hot they can get during summer. This is due to the fact that our garages lack the proper insulation to remain at a comfortable temperature.
If you desire to spend extended periods of time in your garage throughout the year, you should consider insulating the space. The easiest way to do this is to install weather stripping on windows and the sides and bottoms of your garage door.
Add a Refrigerator
If you enjoy hosting, you likely know how much extra fridge space you need to store drinks, food, and everything else. That’s why you should add a refrigerator to your garage. But how is this done? In order to store your refrigerator safely in your garage, you must place it in an area with ample space.
This is important to ensure the electrical system in your fridge does not overheat. Leaving enough space behind your fridge will ensure air can circulate properly.

One of the simplest and easiest ways to upgrade your garage is to incorporate better lighting in the area. Most people only have overhead garage lighting, which provides nothing more than dim illumination, making it very hard to see anything.
Consider installing LED lights that are motion activated. Motion-activated lighting will save you on energy costs, as people tend to run to the garage several times a day to grab an item and forget to turn the light off.
