Garage Wall Ideas: 17 Ways To Improve Your Wall Space

garage wall ideas After years of looking at your unfinished garage walls, you’ve decided that it’s finally time to consider some garage wall ideas to make improvements.

Along with a grey concrete floor, dim lighting, and an unfinished ceiling, those unattractive walls are a nagging reminder that your garage doesn’t look all that different from how it looked when the builder completed work on the home.

And if your garage lacks any decent storage systems there’s probably floor clutter to contend with, which only hurts the garage’s appearance even more.

Try these 17 garage wall ideas 

The walls in most garages have a vast amount of untapped storage potential. And just as they’re underutilized for storage, homeowners don’t take advantage of this sizable amount of square footage to give their garage a more modern aesthetic.

Giving your garage walls some TLC with some wise upgrades can dramatically impact the entire room’s functionality and appearance.

When you’re contemplating how to reinvent your garage wall space as part of a remodeling project, you could look at the walls as a blank canvas. With the right design choices, those walls can transform into something beautiful and unique that also reflects your personality.

Let’s look at 17 popular garage wall ideas that cover everything to do with storage, finishing, and decorating the walls in a garage.

1. Add garage wall insulation

garage wall with insulationYour first step with the walls in a garage should be to add insulation to improve your home’s energy efficiency.

Without garage insulation, your home loses a lot of heat when it’s colder outside and makes your air conditioner work harder when the weather is hot. Don’t forget about making sure your garage doors and ceiling are properly insulated, too.

The most common types of insulation for garage walls are fiberglass batts (pictured to the right), spray foam insulation, and blow-in cellulose insulation.

If your garage already has insulation installed, have a professional inspect it to determine whether an upgrade is warranted. Was it properly installed? Is it the right R-value? Does the insulation have water damage? The latter issue can lead to mold problems and make the insulation less effective.

Wall and ceiling insulation is even more important if you’re someone who enjoys spending a lot of time in the garage with a hobby. If you have a heater or some type of cooling system in the garage, insulation helps make the room easier to keep at a comfortable temperature.

Insulation also has soundproofing benefits. That can limit the noise that is audible in the rest of the home from, say, a power tool being used in the garage.

2. Drywall the garage

Insulation for the garage is a great investment, but the sight of exposed insulation and framing studs isn’t exactly visually appealing.

Get the garage one step closer to having a more finished look by hanging drywall. In addition to covering up a garage’s unattractive construction features and things like electrical wiring and a central vac system’s piping, here are three more reasons to install drywall in a garage:

  • drywall is cost-effective
  • it improves a home’s energy efficiency
  • drywall gives you more flexibility when it comes to decorating your garage walls and adding storage systems

Hanging drywall isn’t rocket science, but it is physically demanding and there is a definite skill to installing it correctly so that the wall has a seamless look without joints, tape, and screws showing.

Two other garage wall covering alternatives to drywall are fiberglass reinforced panels (FRP) and wallboard panels. Keep in mind that these products are used only for covering and finishing walls and aren’t designed to accommodate hanging storage systems.

3. Paint the garage walls

Once your garage drywall is hung, you’ll want to dress it up with a fresh coat of paint. This is where the decor of the garage can really start to take shape.

If you’re doing a top-to-bottom remodel with a garage makeover professional, the paint color chosen for the walls will be influenced by the colors picked for a new floor coating, slatwall, and cabinetry. Even the colors of your vehicles can be factored into your garage color choices to visually complement them better.

Many homeowners choose lighter garage wall paint colors because they reflect light better, make the room look bigger, and make us feel more comfortable. Neutral colors like beige, tan, and grey are also popular.

If it’s done tastefully, pops of bolder colors on a garage wall (whether it’s from paint or the color of a cabinet system, for example) can add visual interest as well.

4. Have a slatwall storage system installed

Slatwall panels provide versatile hanging storage space and give garages a cleaner, finished look.

With a garage’s walls being invaluable for storage and interior design upgrades, wouldn’t it be nice if there was a product that took care of both those needs?

There is such a product and it’s called slatwall. Our slatwall panels and hanging accessories are the best wall-mounted garage storage solution available and give garages a clean, finished look.

This complete wall hanging system involves installing PVC slatwall panels in your garage that are sturdy, easy to clean, and waterproof.

Using a wide variety of hooks, racks, baskets, bins, and shelves, this wall hanging system helps to keep your garage organized and maximize its storage space. Rearranging your stored items is easier with slatwall than it is with other types of wall storage systems, such as pegboard.

Seven slatwall colors are available that allow you to customize your garage’s design. There are several more ways that slatwall can be used as a decorative garage wall feature:

  • it can cover the entire garage wall and be used in corners and awkward spaces
  • slatwall can be combined with open drywall space
  • another slatwall color can be incorporated into the wall design for decorative effect (like the blue slatwall strip below the grey slatwall in the first photo)
  • ribbon lighting installed on the slatwall creates a unique, more inviting look  

5. Add garage wall hooks or track rail storage kits

Perhaps the most common type of garage wall storage system are hooks that are screwed into the wall studs or drywall. 

Wall-mounted track rail storage kits are also popular and involve installing thin rails a few feet long horizontally on the wall and hanging up items using the included accessories.

The benefits of these two types of garage wall organizer products is that they’re cheap and easy to install yourself.

They do have some drawbacks, however. Unlike slatwall or pegboard storage, you’re unable to change their location since they’re permanently anchored in the wall.

That creates problems when your storage needs change and you want to rearrange where your things are hung. Sure, you can just remove the storage systems from the wall and reinstall them in another spot, but then you’re left with holes and repair work.

Different brands, styles, colors, and brands of these products also tend to get bought over time. That results in a patchwork of storage accessories attached to the garage walls that don’t have a cohesive look and add to the room’s visual clutter.

6. Install garage wall shelving

garage wall wire shelvingOne of the garage wall ideas commonly used for storage is built-in shelving or freestanding shelving units. Often, these two storage systems are of the DIY variety and made with wood.

While they are functional, most DIY garage storage systems don’t look very good. Painting or staining the shelves (and frame if it’s a freestanding unit) can help, but unless you’re a carpentry expert, these projects usually end up with that low-end DIY look.

If you do want to use a freestanding shelving rack, spend a little more to get a sturdier product that looks more professional and can hold more weight than one of those flimsy plastic shelving units.

Another option for your shelving needs is wire shelving that can be mounted to the walls of the garage. 

7. Add tire racks

If you live in a northern climate that gets enough snow to warrant having snow tires, tire racks are a smart buy.

A spare set of tires stored on your garage floor, even if they’re all stacked on top of one another, takes up space that could be put to better use. And if you have multiple vehicles with a second set of tires, that space they’re occupying adds up.

Wall-mounted tire racks provide a dedicated space where an off-season set of tires can be kept, freeing up more room on the floor

If you store your spare tire sets at your local garage or a tire specialist store, the fees you’re paying could be invested in tire racks that would pay for themselves in a short amount of time.

8. Use pegboard wall storage

pegboardFor years, when people thought of garage wall ideas, pegboard would be one of the first things to come to mind. 

Pegboard storage was originally used for merchandising in the retail industry and someone eventually came up with the logical idea that the product could be useful for keeping residential garages more organized.

The design of pegboard (a hardwood sheet with evenly spaced holes) made it ideal for giving home owners more flexibility for how they stored their belongings on the garage wall. It was particularly useful for storing tools in a garage workshop with a variety of hooks and hangers.

Pegboard now looks somewhat dated, however, and has been surpassed by slatwall as a product that gives you a nicer aesthetic, more storage versatility, and the ability to handle higher weight capacities. 

For a more durable pegboard product, you could spend a little more to get pegboard made with galvanized steel.

9. Invest in a custom cabinet system

wall-mounted garage cabinets

This custom cabinet system is completely wall-mounted, giving it a distinct “floating“ look.

Storage cabinets are another smart way to make better use of your garage walls. It’s worth it to spend a bit more for a premium cabinet system that can be customized to match the rest of your interior decor.

The cabinet system pictured above was customized to make it completely wall-mounted, which gives it a “floating” look that really stands out. Garage Living also customized the design by adding drawers below the lockers on the left.

High-quality cabinet systems will last longer, are built with a higher grade construction materials, and simply give a garage a more impressive, professional appearance than any of the low-cost cabinets you’ll find online or in a big-box store.

Cabinets afford you more garage storage options and provide space to keep things organized, hidden, and locked up. Hand tools, power tools, cleaning supplies, car care products, and gardening supplies are ideal for cabinet storage.

And custom cabinets can do more for your garage than just give you more storage room. They can be used for a garage workshop and include specialty options like adding a sink or mounted TV.

10. Hang metallic trim or sheets

For garage wall ideas that have functional and decorative uses, some homeowners favor hanging metallic trim or sheets on their walls.

These products are made with aluminum or stainless steel and commonly have a rugged diamond plate design. The trim can be installed in any number of locations around the perimeter of a garage.

Some people cover their entire garage walls with decorative metal sheeting or may opt for a more subdued look and just add a strip of the trim in the middle of their walls.

Others choose to add metal trim with different styles to the top of their walls as a crown molding or use it for a wall base. 

The eye-catching trim adds visual interest to a garage’s walls, which is why the material also works so well as a backsplash in a cabinet system’s design. 

Metal corner guards are another way the material can be used on a garage’s walls. The guards are decorative and also help keep corners protected from scratches and scuffs. 

11. Add garage baseboard

Let’s get a little deeper into the benefits of a garage baseboard and some additional wall base options. Installing a high-quality wall base in the garage:

  • covers up the gap between the wall and floor for a seamless wall-to-floor transition
  • provides an extra decorative touch that helps complete the look of the room
  • keeps drywall protected from water damage
  • cuts down on drafts
  • helps to keep out pests

You’ll want to stay away from using wood or polystyrene wall moldings because of the excess moisture levels found in most garages. The water that collects on a garage floor from rain and melted snow is another reason to use a more resilient type of wall base.

Vinyl and rubber wall bases are often used, which are sometimes referred to as cove base molding. They typically come in rolls with an adhesive backing. Although this type of wall base product is affordable and easy to install yourself, they don’t necessarily give you all the benefits listed above. 

Garage Living offers a premium wall base solution by applying a Floortex™ baseboard coating to your wall base for striking, unique look. 

The baseboard coating is the exact same mix that we use on your garage floor, which takes the concept of a seamless transition between the floor and wall to a whole new level!

Because Floortex™ coatings completely seal the base of a wall, you get a superior level of protection from pests, drafts, and water damage. Our versatile coatings can also be applied to the steps in a garage.

12. Install wall lighting

This remodel shows what design touches like adding perimeter wall lighting and a baseboard coating can do to give a garage a unique, high-end appearance.

Wall lighting in the garage traditionally hasn’t been very commonplace. That’s something that is slowly changing as more homeowners evolve their thinking and embrace the fact that the garage deserves to look as nice as the rest of their home.

Adding lighting to the garage walls can help supplement your main overhead lighting, but will more likely be used for decorative effect and to make the room look more inviting.  

Some of Garage Living’s remodeling projects have included adding LED ribbon lighting below slatwall panels to give the wall an even more distinct and appealing appearance. The lighting turns on when the garage door opens and can also be activated with a remote switch. 

A number of other wall lighting ideas could include installing sconces to give the room more ambiance and a different look.

13. Create a mini workspace with a folding workbench

A wall-mounted folding workbench can be useful for a few reasons:

  • if your garage is small and you don’t have the room to set up a larger workspace
  • maybe you will only use a workspace occasionally and don’t want to dedicate too much space to one
  • if your budget can’t accommodate buying a new cabinet system with a work countertop

A workbench that stays folded against the wall until it’s needed gives a garage some extra functionality without having much of a footprint in the room. 

Be sure to invest in a reliable product that is sturdy enough for your needs, has secure safety mechanisms to prevent the workbench from being lowered unintentionally, and provides you with enough surface space to work.

14. Protect your car doors with wall bumpers

wall bumperWe all know how expensive it is to get any sort of auto body repair or touch-up work done, so wall bumpers may be a smart addition to your garage walls.

Wall bumpers will help protect vehicle doors from dings and scratches that occur when entering or exiting your car or truck.

They’re very practical for small garages, especially some older single car garages that are so narrow you wonder how in the world they fit the huge cars made during the 60s, 70s, and 80s. 

The protective bumpers are ideal even for larger garages that have several vehicles being parked in the space.

15. Have overhead storage racks installed

Most of the space in the upper areas of garages is underutilized. To maximize the room’s storage capabilities, you need to take advantage of every possible part of the room, including the upper walls and ceiling space.

Overhead storage racks take care of this. They’re installed on the wall studs and ceiling joists and provide convenient room to store:

  • bulky items
  • things you don’t use regularly (like storage bins with holiday decorations)
  • out-of-season items you don’t want taking up floor space

Our adjustable overhead storage racks are made with heavy gauge steel that can safely support up to 600 lbs and have a powder coated paint finish, so they’re built to last a long time. 

16. Hang garage wall art

This garage owner’s passion for Ferraris is tastefully reflected in the art on the left-hand side wall.

If you’re going to the time and expense to have your garage remodelled, you’ll want it to reflect your personality.

This can be accomplished a number of ways by adding framed photos or some other type of artwork that reflects one of your passions, whether it’s a car brand, a favorite sports team, or anything else.

For example, the garage pictured above utilizes the Performance theme from Garage Living’s Designer Series. The homeowner drives Ferraris and has a deep passion for the auto brand.

The Ferrari images on the wall, along with the red wall paint and red and black cabinet colors, gives the garage a bold look that beautifully complements the owner’s luxury cars and shows off their love for the automaker. 

The key is to not overdo it with your garage wall artwork. You don’t want the wall to look too busy with a bunch of photos hung up, as that can make the room feel visually cluttered.

17. Add a wall-mounted hose reel

Wall-mounted hose reels are the last of our garage wall ideas. If you have a water connection in the garage, a hose reel installed on the wall is the best way to:

  • keep garden hoses organized
  • extend the life of your hoses
  • keep hoses off the garage floor where they’re a tripping hazard

Invest in a high-quality hose reel, such as the rust-proof aluminum alloy hose reel sold by Garage Living that comes with a 10 year warranty.

This versatile hose reel can be mounted either perpendicular to the wall or parallel to your wall and is the only hose reel on the market specifically designed to allow for either left or right-hand rewinding.

We’ve been making garage interiors across North America look beautiful for a decade-and-a-half and can transform your space with many of these garage wall ideas.

Luxury Car Garage Storage: 5 Ways To Create a Stunning Garage

If you own luxury cars, chances are that you live in an upscale home. 

The garage tends to be the last area in luxury homes to get remodeled, which makes the room stick out like a sore thumb in two ways.

First, there’s the fact that a boring, shabby-looking luxury car garage storage space is the wrong type of setting for parking high-end vehicles.

A Porsche or Lamborghini are works of art and beautiful artwork isn’t displayed in a setting that looks cut-rate. Even magnificent cars like those will lose some of their visual “wow factor” when parked in an unfinished garage that lacks any appealing décor.

Second, having an unattractive garage that doesn’t match the same high design standards that have been established throughout the rest of your house only detracts from your home’s overall visual appeal.

Garage remodel or car storage facility?

Some luxury car owners who keep adding to their collection of vehicles end up turning to luxury car storage facilities when their garage can no longer handle their storage needs.

Creating the perfect luxury car garage storage space right in your own home is easier than you might think.

One of our clients recently discovered this when we remodeled their garage so it would better complement the high-end appearance of their luxury vehicles more and give them more car storage space. 

Solutions like installing car lifts, adding some cutting-edge décor, and upgrading the storage systems transformed the garage into a showroom-quality space. We’ll get into more details about the remodel below.

Drawbacks to luxury car storage facilities

There are two main drawbacks to using a luxury car storage facility – cost and convenience.

Expensive

Using luxury car storage facilities is expensive and any type of rental arrangement is never a tangible investment that provides any long-term benefits for the renter.

We expect that if you can afford luxury vehicles and have enough of them that offsite storage is being considered in the first place, however, that the extra expense of storing your vehicles isn’t an issue. Even still, regardless of how much money is in your bank account, no one likes to waste money.

Those security guards, climate control costs, and a more upscale aesthetic compared to a standard car storage facility don’t come cheaply. Neither do the extra services many luxury car storage facilities offer, such as valet delivery, monthly vehicle status reports sent to the car owner, car-washing and detailing, and regular vehicle maintenance.

Here are the approximate starting prices for keeping a single car at some luxury vehicle storage facilities in a few select cities:

  • Dallas: $275 USD
  • Miami: $380 USD
  • Detroit: $320 USD
  • Toronto: $325 CAD
  • Vancouver: $300 CAD

Inconvenient

Another big negative of not having enough luxury car garage storage space at home and having to use a remote storage facility is the inconvenience.

Even if a car storage facility has vehicle pickup and drop-off services, you need to schedule an appointment. Also, most vehicle owners are uneasy with anyone outside of their family driving their car – especially if it’s very expensive!

It’s impractical to keep luxury cars parked in a different location where you can’t appreciate and admire their beauty.

We’re not saying all luxury vehicle storage facilities are bad. They’re useful if your garage is small and expanding the size isn’t an option or if the maximum number of car lifts are installed in it. And they make sense if you’re just a really serious auto enthusiast whose collection has outgrown even a large home garage.

Unless any of the above issues apply to your situation, however, there is no reason you can’t have your car collection stored right under your own roof. 

Here are five ways to create a stunning garage for your luxury vehicles.

1. Add car lifts to store more luxury vehicles in your garage

double car lift with parked cars

Car lifts are a more practical and cost-effective storage solution than undergoing a garage expansion project or keeping some of your cars at a storage facility.

Any construction project that involves expanding the size of a garage is going to be expensive, messy, lengthy, inconvenient to your family, and require dealing with local zoning laws. 

Adding one or more car lifts to a garage is the best way to increase your home’s available parking space.

The ceiling space in most garages goes unused, which car lifts take advantage of (provided the ceiling is a minimum height of about 10 feet).

By allowing a vehicle to be parked on a raised platform above another vehicle, you double each available parking space in the garage with each lift that is added. A 2-car garage effectively becomes a 4-car garage, for example.  

The spacious garage featured here is approximately 1,120 square feet and can store six vehicles, so there is a wealth of luxury car garage storage space if the homeowner adds to their auto collection.

A double car lift setup helps keep most of the ample garage floor space open, which makes driving in and out of the garage and parking easier. It also creates more space for other non-traditional garage uses, which we’ll get into later. 

Car lifts are also ideal for parking vehicles that aren’t driven on a regular basis, such as a luxury sports car or classic car owned by someone living in a northern climate who wants to store it for the winter. With a car lift, your lesser-driven vehicles won’t take up the garage’s prime parking spots.

When you can conveniently keep all of your vehicles right in your own garage, why waste money on luxury car storage fees?

2. Showcase your luxury cars

luxury cars on car lifts

Car lifts create more parking space and let you to display and showcase your luxury vehicles. Pictured are a Corvette ZR1, Lamborghini Aventador, and Porsche GT2 RS.

Car lifts have more functionality than just creating more garage parking space – they’re a great tool that allows you to showcase your vehicles, too.

Elevating some of your cars creates a more impressive sight than if you had a collection of, say, four or five cars parked at floor level in a garage. The vehicles parked behind other vehicles are less visible and their true beauty can’t be fully admired.

In a way, you could look at car lifts as display platforms that enable high-end car collectors to display the vehicles they cherish to their best effect, especially when surrounded by tasteful upgrades to the garage’s interior décor.

A luxury car garage storage space that uses car lifts also stands out because although lifts made for residential use aren’t exactly new, they’re still fairly uncommon in garages. These impressive devices are a talking point in and of themselves, even without an exotic sports car parked on them!

If your garage is as large as this one, you could even have an extra car lift or two installed during a remodel to accommodate vehicles you’re looking to add to your collection. 

3. Make your garage interior luxurious

Most homeowners don’t associate the word “luxurious” with a garage interior, but that’s only because the concept of high-end garage décor is relatively new. 

Garages should look as nice as any other part of the home, especially since so many of us primarily enter and exit our main living space through the garage.

Upgrading your garage interior creates a nicer-looking transitional space. It also creates a true extension of your home’s living space that makes you feel more comfortable. And when you factor in owning luxury cars, there is even more reason to make your garage look gorgeous!

As seen in the “Before” photo below, this garage had a dull, monochromatic look and needed some decorative flair to upgrade the room’s aesthetic.

Before the garage remodel

Garage Living added a Nightfall Floortex™ floor coating with decorative flakes and a glossy finish that adds visual appeal to the room and nicely complements the cars’ high-end look. This durable polyaspartic floor coating provides superior protection to an epoxy floor and is easier to maintain.

In addition to providing wall hanging space, the surrounding grey slatwall gives the room a tidy, consistent look. The lower black slatwall strips provide a nice visual contrast and incorporate LED ribbon lighting for extra visual interest.

Here are some more décor-related upgrades that were part of this luxury car garage remodel:

  • Numerous pot lights replaced the outdated incandescent bulb lighting to brighten the room and showcase the luxury cars in the best light – literally!
  • A fresh coat of white ceiling paint gives the garage a clean look, makes the room feel more relaxing (one of several benefits of using white paint), and reflects light better.
  • A Floortex™ baseboard coating around the garage’s perimeter creates a more seamless aesthetic between the floor and walls of the room.
  • A GL Custom Steel cabinet system adds a further infusion of high-end style to the garage’s appearance. A pressure washer and its two hoses are kept hidden behind some cabinet doors to preserve the room’s tidy look.
  • New garage doors were installed to upgrade one of the home’s most noticeable exterior features and boost curb appeal. The doors have obscure glass panels that provide privacy while allowing natural light in.

4. Keep the garage organized and maximize its storage

A luxury garage won’t look so luxurious if it’s untidy, so investing in high-quality storage systems is a must.

We offer numerous solutions that allow homeowners to maximize their garage’s storage space. Working with garage remodel pros like Garage Living allows you to make the best use of the room’s storage space and have it designed accordingly to fit your family’s needs.

We’ve already mentioned how our storage systems contribute to the modern, stylish look of luxury garages. Here’s how they maximize your storage space and give garages more functionality.

luxury garage cabinets

High-quality garage cabinets contribute to a luxury garage’s upscale look and expand your storage options.

Garage wall storage

Your garage walls are your biggest asset when it comes to finding more garage storage space. As you can see in these photos, slatwall creates lots of hanging space for bikes and other types of sports equipment, ladders, tools, apparel, and anything else capable of being hung up.

Overhead storage

Just as car lifts get more use out of a garage’s underutilized ceiling space, so do overhead storage racks. They’re ideal for storing bulky items like storage bins and out-of-season items that you don’t want sitting on the garage floor.

Garage cabinets

Garage storage cabinets expand your storage options and provide space for keeping valuables and hazardous materials that you’d prefer to be locked up. This garage’s cabinet system is wall-mounted and was customized to include drawers beneath the locker doors.

A stainless steel countertop, sink with a pullout faucet, and a mounted 4K TV gives the garage extra functionality as a workspace.

Multipurpose space

With an organized garage, you can use it for things besides parking vehicles and home storage. Making your garage work harder (and more efficiently) as a storage space opens up opportunities for using the room as a workshop, exercise space, or even as a home relaxation area.

5. Make your car garage more secure

It’s a wonder that so many luxury cars get parked in driveways instead of the garage. This is usually because there is too much clutter in the garage, an all-too-common issue that causes about 25% of homeowners to park outdoors most of the time.

luxury garage interior

Protect your luxury car investments by making your garage as secure as possible.

Not only are cars and trucks left exposed to the elements, but they’re also much more vulnerable to theft and vandalism. 

Once a garage is organized so you can park indoors, there are numerous other ways to keep your luxury cars safer when they’re parked inside:

  • Install smart wireless security cameras with motion sensors outside your garage doors and inside the room that can be accessed through your smartphone.
  • Invest in a good garage alarm system.
  • Keep the garage doors locked (which sounds obvious, but you’d be amazed at how many homeowners fail to do so). A keyless garage entry system is also worth considering.
  • Upgrade your home’s exterior lighting around the garage to provide better lighting coverage that will deter burglars.
  • Limit the garage interior’s visibility from the outside by using opaque treatments on windows or window coverings.
  • Upgrade your garage door openers to take advantage of convenient features like smart MyQ technology that lets you monitor and control your doors remotely via a smartphone app.
  • Invest in a sturdier, more secure exterior garage access door.

Create your one-of-a-kind luxury car garage storage space

Garage Living specializes in designing one-of-a-kind luxury car garage storage spaces just like this one. 

We can help you get a lot more out of your garage, both in terms of how it looks and functions. And we can accomplish this in less time than you might think.

10 Garage Gift Ideas for Dad

man in garage using ladder, opening drawer, and leaning on wall

When most of us are brainstorming gift ideas for dad around Father’s Day, his birthday, or the holiday season, it’s the “dad gift greatest hits” that first come to mind.

Gifts like a new tie, socks, a car care kit, cologne, a day of golf and a package of golf balls, a “best dad ever” coffee mug, or a (yikes) multi-function tool aren’t original and won’t leave a lasting impression, however.

Get creative and think outside the box when it comes to your gift ideas for dad. The type of gift that is always most appreciated by the recipient is completely unexpected, useful, extra thoughtful, and leaves a lasting impression.

What type of gift checks all of these boxes for dad? It’s the gift of helping dad transform the garage into a special space that is personalized for his needs.

10 garage gift ideas for dad that he’ll love

Mental health professionals believe that occasionally spending time in a personalized space is good for our mental and emotional well-being.

It provides a place to de-stress and focus on and enjoy the things you love, all while surrounding yourself in a comfortable environment that reflects your personality.

For dad, that space can be the garage. If the garage is clean, organized, and designed with dad in mind, he can enjoy using the room more in his leisure time and even for everyday things like parking and finding his things easily.

A garage makeover will be enjoyed not just by dad, but by the whole family who will benefit from having a more visually appealing and functional garage to use.

Here are 10 garage gift ideas for dad that will transform how he uses the space.

1. Help dad declutter the garage

No one who has an excessively cluttered garage would likely say they enjoy setting foot in the room. Who wants to be reminded every time they enter a room that all of that clutter and junk that has built up over the years needs to be dealt with eventually?

This is exactly why organization and medical experts tell us that a cluttered living space clutters the mind and contributes to added stress and anxiety. And the longer the clutter problem isn’t dealt with, the worse it gets and the more daunting a cleanup project seems.

In order to restore a messy garage’s functionality, all of that clutter needs to go. If dad has been putting off that big garage cleanup project for awhile, now is the time to give him a hand.

Help dad declutter the room to get the garage to a solid starting point for beginning the room’s redesign process. Emptying the garage of all that junk and clutter and leaving just the essentials will allow him to better visualize what he needs to store and how he can best use the space in other ways, too.

2. Expand dad’s garage storage capabilities with slatwall

motorcycle and items hung on garage wall

One great solution for helping dad get where he needs to be with the garage’s level of organization is to have PVC slatwall panels installed.

Slatwall storage makes effective use of a garage’s wall storage space by allowing things that might otherwise be leaned against the wall or stashed in a corner to be hung up. That eliminates tripping hazards and the floor clutter that restricts you from getting the most use out of a garage.

Bikes, ladders, power cords, shovels, rakes, and almost any other type of lawn and gardening tool can be hung on hooks of different sizes. Baskets, bins, and shelves are available for keeping things like sports equipment, gardening supplies, and car care products more organized. Specialty slatwall racks can be used to keep dad’s fishing gear and golf equipment safely stored and easy to locate.

The versatility of slatwall allows your wall storage setup to be rearranged with ease when your storage needs change, which is something that is guaranteed to happen with the things you keep in the garage.

In addition to helping dad stay more organized, slatwall gives the garage a more finished look as well. Don’t underestimate the aesthetic benefits of replacing old pegboard panels, a bunch of hooks and nails, or some other type of DIY garage wall storage system with a product that looks more professional and modern.

3. Design the garage so dad can use it as a hobby space

When planning your garage makeover gift for dad, consider his hobbies and passions and how the garage can accommodate some of them.

Is dad a fitness buff? A garage gym would save him from having to trek to a local gym to work out. Exercising in the comfort of your own home is ultra-convenient and very practical. Designate a section of the garage that dad can use for his workouts, with enough room for an exercise machine or two, a weight bench, some wall space for hanging workout equipment, and some open space for stretching and doing his exercise routines.

If dad likes to work with his hands and enjoys tinkering or has a hobby like woodworking, create a garage workshop. Our storage cabinet systems are designed with garage workshops in mind. You can have the cabinet system customized to give dad the type of sturdy work surface he needs and the right amount of drawer, locker, and cabinet storage space.

However dad plans to enjoy his leisure time in the garage, you can make his personalized space the entire garage, half of the garage, or even just a small corner of it. Garage Living will work with you to get dad’s garage sanctuary just right!

4. Maximize storage space with garage cabinets and overhead racks

By using slatwall, you’re already well on your way towards optimizing your garage’s storage capabilities. These garage gift ideas for dad are all about making his life easier, so why not take things a step further and truly maximize his garage’s storage space?

Garage storage cabinets are a great way to supplement dad’s wall storage and are more suited to storing certain things like his hand tool collection and power tools. The cabinet system can also incorporate convenient amenities like a fridge, sink, TV, plenty of charging and electrical outlets, and task lighting.

Many dads use repurposed kitchen cabinets or bookcases, DIY cabinets, wobbly plastic utility storage lockers, or flimsy metal cabinet systems that start to rust within a year of being purchased. Premium storage cabinets that are constructed with superior North American-made steel and high-quality craftsmanship are a huge upgrade over those storage systems and are a garage gift idea dad will truly appreciate!

As another way to keep the garage organized, have overhead storage racks installed to hold bulky items and things that don’t get used often, such as storage bins with holiday decorations.

5. Create a relaxation space in the garage for dad

The garage isn’t thought of or used as a part of the home where someone can go to sit down, relax, and enjoy a movie or spend time with their friends.

That’s because we’ve been so conditioned over the years to look at the garage as nothing more than a room to park cars in and store stuff. “Garage décor” may sound like a foreign concept to many people, but there is plenty you can do nowadays to make a garage look stylish and upscale.

Look past the fact that garages are commonly dark, dirty, dusty, too hot or too cold, and a décor-free zone. What if you could fix all of those issues and remodel the room into a space that was as cozy as your living room?

With the right touch from a garage designer, dad could enjoy such a space. All of these garage gift ideas we’re sharing will help you upgrade your garage into a clean, tidy room with modern décor.

Dad can have his own private space with some comfy furniture to enjoy some movies and watch his favorite sporting events on TV. Having his own TV in the garage won’t just make dad happy, it also frees up the TV in your entertainment room for the rest of the family.

The garage can also become dad’s social space when he has visitors over to watch the big race or game or is hosting a poker night. He certainly won’t shy away from showing off his beautiful garage space to his friends!

6. Upgrade the garage floor

If you’re designing the garage so dad can enjoy it more, that boring gray, dirty, and cracked garage floor simply won’t do. A proper garage makeover starts from the floor up, so one of your must-have garage gift ideas for dad is a new floor coating.

Don’t settle for just any old garage floor resurfacing product, however. Floor paint and DIY epoxy coatings may be cheap to buy, but they also look cheap when you’re done using them.

Get the best product available for dad and have a Floortex™ polyaspartic floor coating professionally applied by Garage Living.

This high-quality coating makes the garage floor look not just “better than new” (because let’s face it, the home builder didn’t exactly leave an aesthetic masterpiece with their floor work), but as impressive and stylish as the flooring in a high-end car showroom.

Floortex™ is also extremely durable and designed to withstand the demands of a busy garage environment for many years.

7. Optimize the garage’s comfort level with these 5 extras

In addition to the already-mentioned extra amenities you can incorporate into the garage design (like a TV, fridge, and sink), here are some other ways to enhance the comfort level in the room for dad:

  1. Upgrade the garage lighting. Bad garage lighting is a huge factor in why so many garages feel like dark, dreary dungeons. A couple of fluorescent bulbs that provide harsh, uneven illumination doesn’t cut it anymore when it comes to garage lighting. Some energy-efficient LED light fixtures or nice pot lights will do a much better job of showing dad’s dream garage in the best light. He’ll be able to find his things easier, too!
  2. Add garage insulation. To extend the amount of time that dad has for using his garage when the weather gets too cold or too hot, consider adding insulation to the garage walls and ceiling (or upgrading the existing insulation). Good insulation that is properly installed is something that is recommended for any garage to significantly improve a home’s energy efficiency.
  3. Install climate control systems. Enhance dad’s comfort level in the garage when the temperatures soar or plummet by installing cooling and heating systems.
  4. Boost your garage’s WiFi reception. Having a weak WiFi signal when you’re spending time in the garage can be frustrating. Most of your smart devices won’t even work without a reliable online connection. To solve any WiFi reception issues in the garage, use solutions like a WiFi extender, a powerline adapter, or add a mesh network.
  5. Add a great audio system. Modern tech has made it easier than ever to set up incredible-sounding audio systems anywhere in the home, without having to hide a bunch of wires or have huge speakers taking up a lot of space. Smart speakers can be used virtually anywhere. Sound bar speakers can be discreetly fitted into a custom garage cabinet system. Now dad can play his music and watch his movies or the football game a little louder than he might be able to elsewhere in your home!

8. Simplify the garage design process for dad

A personal home space isn’t just about designating part of a living space to function as a getaway for an individual. Part of the “personal” aspect of it is the way it’s personalized to reflect their style and unique tastes.

If dad doesn’t have the first clue about home décor and what colors and design choices work best with one another, simplify the entire garage design process for him.

This is why Garage Living created the Designer Series, which our clients love. It includes seven exclusive garage design themes with appealing color palettes and a selection of high-quality materials.

The themes leverage the expertise of Garage Living’s design professionals and provide a great visual helper for anyone who wants to imagine what their garage could eventually look like.

9. Let dad’s garage décor reflect his passions

custom garage gift ideas

Is dad a huge auto racing fan or does he never miss a game on TV with his favorite NFL, MLB, NBA, or NHL team? Maybe he loves a particular car brand or owns a luxury sports car and wouldn’t mind parking it in a garage that showed it off a little better.

Whatever dad’s biggest passions are, let his garage décor reflect his love for these special things.

The garage pictured above shows the Performance theme from the Designer Series and instantly conveys the homeowner’s passion for Ferraris. The colors of the floor coating, cabinets, slatwall, and the wall and ceiling paint beautifully complement one another and the color of the cars. The artwork adds a tasteful personal touch.

The colors of dad’s favorite team could also set the foundation for the décor of his garage. Ask a Garage Living design professional about what we can do to make dad’s garage design reflect his personality.

10. Add more parking space with a car lift

If dad owns a classic car or any type of vehicle that isn’t driven year-round, he undoubtedly wants it to be stored indoors. Unfortunately, that can mean one of your everyday use vehicles loses a garage parking spot.

The solution isn’t to store the rarely driven vehicle in a costly storage facility across town, nor is it to undergo a messy, expensive garage expansion renovation that disrupts your family’s lives for weeks.

Adding a 4 post car lift to the garage (or a couple of them) can solve your home parking problems.

By taking advantage of your garage’s unused vertical space so one vehicle can be parked on a raised lift above another vehicle, you can increase your garage’s parking capacity.

Car lifts are also useful for storing bulky things like a motorcycle, riding mower, snowblower, and patio furniture, which leaves your garage floor with less clutter. And if dad likes doing his own vehicle maintenance, a car lift even comes in handy for those hard-to-reach underside repair jobs.

Talk to us about these garage gift ideas for dad

For the ultimate gift for dad, turn the garage he’s been dreaming about for years into something that exceeds even his wildest dreams.

Get the process started by scheduling a free design consultation with us.

We’ll walk you through your options for giving dad the gift of a beautiful garage makeover. You can give him a Garage Living gift certificate for the makeover project and get him involved with the planning to ensure it looks just the way he wants.

4 Effective Garage Gym Workouts to Lose Weight

garage gym workouts

If you place a high priority on living a healthy lifestyle, you likely work out every day or several times a week.

For any fitness enthusiast, what could be more convenient than having a fully functional exercise space right inside your home?

The garage is an ideal area of the home to use for your regular workouts. Modern garage makeovers are capable of creating a multipurpose home space that looks stylish and is much more comfortable to spend time in.

Garage gym workouts and using the room as a workshop or for crafting projects are just a few ways garages can be utilized beyond their traditional usage as a storage and parking space.

We talked to Lisa Pineda, who owns and operates fitness studio Body Zone Fitness in Coquitlam, British Columbia. She recently had her garage remodeled into a space that could accommodate her fitness routine and family’s storage needs.

Lisa shares her thoughts on how the garage makeover has benefited her family, as well as four detailed garage gym workouts you can use to get your heart pumping.

This personal trainer loves using her garage gym

Lisa in garage gymGarage Living Vancouver helped Lisa, a personal trainer and Health Coach who specializes in women’s and prenatal fitness, with her garage transformation.

“Having limited storage options in our home, three active children in competitive sports year-round, and myself wanting a space to work out in, I needed something created to solve all of those problems that were a pain point in our old home”, says Lisa.

Garage Living applied a Floortex™ floor coating to the basic concrete flooring. Lisa loves the aesthetic upgrade and clean surface the floor coating provides, as well as the fact the textured surface makes the floor less slippery during her garage gym workouts.

Slatwall was also installed, adding plenty of hanging storage space for tools, ladders, her kids’ backpacks and sports gear, and Lisa’s exercise equipment.

“I love being able to see what I have access to when working out. It allows my creative side to come alive when training clients and making programs for them. I have utilized my slatwall to display as much of my equipment as possible, including using hooks for my resistance bands and loops. I place my programs, water, and music on the shelf and my weights, yoga mat, and foam roller in the hanging baskets. The easier it is to find these items, the faster my workout flows”, says Lisa.

“Having my garage organized and designed to fit the needs of my family has reduced our stress and daily anxiety, simply knowing that our things have a proper storage place”, she continues. “We created a proper storage system for our recycling and garbage. And, of course, a little space for me to get my sweat on without stepping on toys, crayons, or dolls.”

Try these 4 garage gym workout routines

Lisa lent us her fitness expertise and created four garage gym workout videos that you can use when exercising at home.

These videos show that expensive exercise machines are not required to get a productive workout. Lisa (with some help from her daughter in the kickboxing video) is using nothing more than loop bands, light dumbbells, and a yoga mat.

Take things at a pace that is comfortable for you and let’s start burning some calories!

Stretch workout

Overview: Lisa shares a variety of effective stretching exercises that can be used when warming up and cooling down for your garage gym workouts.

Kickboxing workout

Overview: this kickboxing exercise combines cardiovascular drills and the use of martial arts techniques for a vigorous full-body workout. Light dumbbells can be used for more effective results but are not essential.

Loop band workout

Overview: this fitness routine involves three groups of exercises that utilize loop bands (also known as resistance bands) and light dumbbells.

AMRAP workout

Overview: Lisa’s AMRAP (as many reps/rounds as possible) routine involves a series of exercises that includes pike jumps, burpees, and lower ab lifts.

5 benefits of having a home garage gym

According to a Statistic Brain survey of 5,313 American gym members, 63% of gym memberships are never used. A third of gym members would not have gotten a membership if they had known how infrequently they would go to their gym. And 82% of gym members visit the gym less than once a week.

The time required to commute to the local gym is undoubtedly a big factor in why people rarely see a good return on investment with their gym membership.

Having an at-home fitness space eliminates the hassle of having to travel to a public gym for your workouts. Here are five other benefits of a garage gym:

  1. You can work out anytime without being confined to a public gym’s operating hours.
  2. A garage gym can be set up just the way you like, including how you want to store and organize things and how you want the décor to look.
  3. You can save the cost of a gym membership (which averages about $700 for a year).
  4. There’s no waiting around to use any exercise equipment!
  5. Because only you and your family are using the workout space, there are no health or hygiene concerns (such as other people’s sweat being left on equipment, having to use a public shower, and being exposed to any contagious and infectious viruses).

Create your own garage gym workout space

This garage gym is set up to keep the homeowner’s exercise equipment organized and easy to find.

Setting up a home gym in the garage is possible regardless of your garage’s size. One of Garage Living’s clients placed a higher priority on using his single-car garage as a fitness space than for parking a vehicle. We transformed the garage into an organized, well-equipped gym that he and his wife use for working out year-round (shown in the above photo).

Like this client, Lisa, and many others, Garage Living can remodel your garage so you can use it as a workout space, for parking, organized home storage, and so much more.

The Top 10 Most Stolen Vehicles in Canada Will Probably Surprise You

Most Stolen Vehicles in Canada

Photo by Sarah Brown on Unsplash

When you think of the most stolen vehicles in Canada, you would expect new luxury cars, SUVs, and trucks to be among the most targeted types by auto thieves.

That’s not even close, actually.

The Insurance Bureau of Canada (IBC) recently released their annual list of the top 10 most stolen vehicles in Canada for 2019 and we must admit – it’s not what we expected.

Top 10 most stolen vehicles in Canada

  1. 2007 Ford 350
  2. 2006 Ford 350
  3. 2005 Ford 350
  4. 2004 Ford 350
  5. 2006 Ford 250
  6. 2003 Ford 350
  7. 2018 Lexus RX350/RX350L/RX450h/RX450hL 
  8. 2005 Ford F250
  9. 2002 Ford F350
  10. 1998 Honda Civic Si

Why are older Ford pickups such magnets for thieves?

Other than several models of the 2018 Lexus RX, there are no new vehicles to be seen on the list. Goodness, there’s no other vehicles on there that even qualify as “relatively new”!

So what gives? Why are not one, not two, but eight of the most stolen vehicles in Canada heavy-duty Ford pickups whose ages are well into the double digits?

It comes down to availability, design, and demand.

Ford F-Series trucks are the best-selling vehicles in North America. In Canada, they’ve held that crown for a decade. As a matter of fact, F-Series trucks account for half of Ford Canada’s sales

In addition to so many of these pickups being spread around the country, pre-2008 F-Series models lack an ignition immobilizer. It does exactly what you’d think, which makes the trucks easy to hot-wire. 

Stolen pickups and SUVs are also highly coveted for their overseas resale value. Combine all of these factors and you have the answer as to why the F-Series dominates this list of the most stolen vehicles in Canada.

Why is a 22-year-old car one of the most stolen vehicles in Canada?

You may also be wondering, “What’s the deal with a 21-year-old Honda Civic being such a car thief magnet?”

Like the Ford pickups, it once again comes down to the popularity and design of that specific car model.

1998 was the year the Civic started its impressive run (that has yet to be broken) of being the best-selling car in Canada. With that level of popularity comes a high-demand market for “hot” Civic parts.

Newer Civic models are less attractive to car thieves because they’re simply harder to steal than the older models. 

Ontario, Alberta, and B.C.’s most stolen vehicles

The IBC’s list of the most stolen vehicles in Canada also provides a breakdown showing which models thieves prefer in each province.

Here’s what their data shows for three of Canada’s most populous provinces:

Ontario:

  1. 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Sport
  2. Lexus RX350/RX350L/RX450h/RX450hL
  3. 2011 Land Rover Range Rover Sport
  4. 2005 Chevrolet/GMC Tahoe/Yukon
  5. 2016 Land Rover Range Rover
  6. 2002 Chevrolet/GMC Tahoe/Yukon
  7. 2004 Chevrolet/GMC Suburban/Yukon XL 1500
  8. 2006 Chevrolet/GMC Silverado/Sierra 2500
  9. 2005 Chevrolet/GMC Suburban/Yukon XL 1500
  10. 2018 Toyota 4Runner

Alberta:

  1. 2007 Ford F350
  2. 2006 Ford F350
  3. 2006 Ford F250
  4. 2004 Ford F250
  5. 2005 Ford F350
  6. 2005 Ford F250
  7. 2000 Honda Civic Si coupe
  8. 1999 Honda Civic hatchback
  9. 2004 Ford F350
  10. 2007 Ford F250

British Columbia (model years unavailable):

  1. Ford F-Series trucks
  2. Honda Civic and CRX
  3. Dodge trucks
  4. GMC/Chevy trucks
  5. Ford E-Series vans
  6. Jeep Cherokee and Grand Cherokee
  7. Acura Integra
  8. Toyota Corolla
  9. Honda CRV
  10. Dodge Caravan

8 more facts about vehicle theft in Canada

Smart car tech means more convenience and versatility for drivers, but that also makes them more vulnerable to smart thieves.  

While thieves favour older vehicle models because of their relatively inferior security features, tech-savvy criminals are still managing to figure out how to outsmart the sophisticated tech built into modern vehicles.

The IBC calls vehicle theft “much more than an insurance problem, it’s an expensive social menace”. That can’t be disputed when you look at some facts about vehicle theft in Canada:

  • every seven minutes, a vehicle is stolen in Canada
  • Statistics Canada says that 86,132 vehicles were reported stolen in Canada in 2018
  • vehicle theft costs drivers almost $1 billion annually
  • insurance companies cover about half of that $1 billion amount to replace and repair stolen vehicles 
  • law enforcement, courts, and the health care system need to devote large resources to theft-related matters
  • selling stolen vehicles for their parts is more lucrative than selling entire vehicles 
  • air bags, catalytic converters, and car seats are the most coveted parts resold from stolen vehicles
  • when a vehicle is stolen just to commit another crime, it is typically abandoned and found within two days with significant damage

One of the best ways to prevent car theft? Park in your garage.

Even if you’re not an owner of one of the most stolen vehicles in Canada, you shouldn’t have a false sense of security about how safe your parked vehicles are. 

An experienced thief can steal a vehicle without a key in as little as 30 seconds. Completely eliminating the accessibility thieves have to your vehicles by simply parking in the garage instead of the driveway is one of your best defenses against theft.

Parking in your garage may be easier said than done if the room lacks adequate systems to keep it organized, causing it to become overrun by clutter. 

Garages are usually the most cluttered rooms in a house, to the point where 25% of people with 2-car garages don’t park in them at all. A third can only park one car, according to a U.S. Department of Energy study.

Parking in the garage makes your vehicles less visible and accessible to potential thieves.

Additional best practices to protect your vehicles

There are many other common-sense ways to ensure the protection of your vehicles that will cost you nothing.

Lock your vehicle doors and keep the windows shut at all times, even if the vehicle is only going to be left unattended in the driveway for a few minutes. A good thief only needs a window that’s cracked open an inch to get inside a vehicle.

It doesn’t get much easier for a car thief than finding an unattended, unlocked idling vehicle just waiting to be separated from its careless owner. Avoid extended idling periods in the driveway and especially an attached garage (which raises the risk of high levels of carbon monoxide entering the main living space). Think twice about using a remote starter to warm your vehicle up on cold mornings, too.

Park in safe, well-lit areas when you’re away from home, even if it means the walk to your destination is a little bit longer. Owners of older vehicles should consider investing in anti-theft devices like steering wheel locks, brake pedal locks, and GPS tracking systems.

Be mindful of keeping important documents like insurance paperwork well-hidden or avoid keeping them in the car altogether. In the wrong hands, they can be used for insurance fraud or identity theft. Remember, a locked glove compartment in most vehicles is child’s play for a thief to break into.

Don’t give a burglar any extra incentive to break into your vehicle by leaving anything of value (even loose change) visible. 

By “anything of value” we’re including your key fob and traditional car key. Between 2013 and 2018, the number of vehicles stolen because their keys or fobs were simply left inside them has increased 88% according to a National Insurance Crime Bureau report.

Even when you’re at home, be careful about where you keep your fob. These devices may be super-convenient, but they’re vulnerable to what is known as relay theft. Fobs kept within close proximity of a home’s walls, windows, or an exterior door can potentially have their signal hijacked by a pair of thieves outside the house using wireless transmitters. 

As a safeguard, store your fob in a closed metal box (which blocks the signal) in a centralized part of the home.

7 more good reasons to park in your garage

most stolen vehicles in canada car buried in snowBesides safeguarding what are likely the most expensive assets you have besides your home, here’s why the garage and not the driveway should be where you’re parking:

  1. Vehicle windows will be less prone to fogging up in damp weather and from early morning dew.
  2. Indoor parking lets you avoid dealing directly with bad weather when entering and exiting vehicles.
  3. Vehicles are protected from body damage caused by long-term exposure to the sun, tree sap, and projectiles when there are high winds.
  4. Parking in a safe space means some insurance companies may lower your insurance rates.
  5. Vehicles won’t need snow and ice cleared off in the winter, which saves you time.
  6. Having your vehicles closer to the garage access door into your main living space is more convenient for getting groceries and other transported items inside.
  7. Vehicles will warm up faster in cold weather.

Make space in the garage to keep your vehicles safe

Whether or not you own any of the cars or trucks on this list of the most stolen vehicles in Canada, it never hurts to be reminded about what you can do to keep your vehicles more secure. 

If you’re one of the many homeowners who can’t park in the garage because of clutter (or you can, but find it difficult to do so because there’s so little space), it’s a problem that has an easy solution.

Talk to Garage Living to find out how we can make your garage an organized, clutter-free space that can give your vehicles back their rightful home.

Our storage systems include slatwall, cabinetry, and overhead racks to help maximize any garage’s storage space and update its look. To create more garage parking space, we can also install a car lift.
