When you are a leader in a category, it also comes with the task of explaining what we do and how it all happens. That is exactly what Garage Living had to communicate in our new Transform Your Garage video. “As leaders in the garage makeovers, we must also lead in communicating the process and benefits” said Aaron Cash, partner of Garage Living.

“Garage Living performs complete garage makeovers. There is so much potential in every garage space large or small” explains Linda Fiore Ceolin, Creative Director of Garage Living. “The Garage Living Design Consultants use a combination of creative design solutions, products and services to make this all happen.”

The marketing challenge for Linda and her team was to show exactly what is involved in a Garage Living transformation in a quick, interesting and entertaining way. A 10 second animation was the answer. “We were able to animate the execution of a typical project. Everything we illustrated was demonstrated exactly as if our crews completed the project… over the course of a couple days.”

The before garage

Most garages are vastly underutilized. Garage Living sees homeowners using makeshift shelving that is at times unsafe. We also see little sense of organization and the floor being used to store seasonal items leaving little room for parking a car. The walls are bare and are most often used to lean items against. Most garages are not even primed and painted if dry walled at all! Lighting consists of a single incandescent bulb that is both easily broken and barely provides any light.

While most homeowners see this unfinished space as a dreaded, overwhelming, disorganized space, Garage Living sees this as a blank canvas! Our vision combined with execution is why we continue to create these dramatic transformations on a daily basis. Our garage makeover gallery shows some of the incredible garage transformations we have performed.

The experience

Garage Living design consultants visit your home, professionally measure and provide a detailed design and comprehensive quotation. Following some fine-tuning and collaboration with the client we schedule the project over consecutive days – on average 2-3 days. To begin the project, all contents in the garage are removed. Some items are purged and other items are donated. The items that are to be kept are stored in locked trailers onsite during the transformation.

Combinations of custom solutions are used to make the most of our client’s garage space. This can include but not limited to: new protective floor coating, metal cabinetry, slat wall organizers, accessories, ceiling organizers, new garage doors, garage openers, aluminum capping, and car lifts. From the initial design consultation, and design presentation to final installation, there are so many moving parts but this process is completely managed by our team.

The after garage

When the project is complete, the garage functions properly, enhances our clients lifestyle, and most importantly does what it is intended to do, namely any combination of custom solutions: store seasonal items such as car tires and patio furniture, allow for accessibility to gardening items, car cleaning items, toys, ladders, and park a car!

“The ongoing positive feed back and testimonials  from our customers reminds us that we are really making a difference in the lives of our customers” says Garage Living owner Daniel Albo, who overseas installations and operations. “We have a phenomenal team that performs so many tasks from renovation services, flooring, cabinetry installations and more to complete custom projects.”

We welcome you to take advantage of your free design consultation to make the most of your garage space.
