5 Easy Steps for Planning Your Garage Makeover

You’ve taken the biggest step already: you’ve decided to transform your unfinished or disorganized garage into your dream garage.

What type of garage transformation do you want?

The bright and clean garage

Most of us just use our garages for parking, storage, and as our main entrance. So it shouldn’t be dark and disorganized. You’ll find storage options for all sizes. And they’re all adjustable.

The auto enthusiast’s garage

If you’re working on a project car, you’ll need storage and tool cabinets. If you have the overhead space, you could install car lifts. You can even base your décor choices on the colour of your car!

The gardener’s garage

If you love gardening you’ll have tools and equipment. You may need workbenches for seedlings and other planting work. Think of your new garage as a large, comfortable, garden shed.

The sports fan’s garage

If you have a family, you probably have a lot of sports equipment. Skis, snowboards, hockey sticks…or even kayaks and canoes. And there’s barely room to park the car, with all those bikes in there. Storage solutions will turn your garage into a safe, secure place to store your sports equipment, and give you room to park.

So where to start? You can easily become overwhelmed by all the options and plans. Follow these steps to make planning your garage a pleasure.

Step 2: Consultation

Set up a free consultation with one of our designers.

Discuss your wants with the designer, who will measure your space, and draw up a plan. They’ll evaluate your space, and help you make the final decisions on the garage of your dreams.

They’ll make a customized solution for your specific space and for your family’s needs, based on your budget.

You can also discuss your requirements with our on-site design consultant, who will advise on all the different options for all budgets.

Step 4: Installation

Once you’ve finalized your design, the installation date is booked. All installers are Garage Living trained, and will be able to discuss any questions you may have. Most transformations take only a few days, so you’ll soon be using the garage of your dreams.
