Hiding For the Holidays

By November 23, 2018Garage Floor

So, it’s finally the holiday season. You get extra days off from work and get to spend more time relaxing at home…with visiting family. While this can be a treat for those who don’t see their extended family members often, it can also be overwhelming and stressful opening your home to others and providing accommodations.

Thankfully, there is one spot your family probably won’t be hanging out where you can hide for the holidays: your garage.

If your garage is dirty and disorganized, this might not sound appealing to you. However, there are a few ways you can spruce up your space to create the perfect spot to start projects, work on your car or even watch the game without interruption. Here are some of our favorites:

  1. Make new space. Your garage may be full of stuff – your lawnmower, bikes, grill and whatever else you put in there after summer is over. The first step of making your garage into a usable space is cleaning and organizing, and creating a designated space for storage will help open other areas for new activities.
  2. Add a workbench. Your garage doesn’t have to feel like a secret hideout spot. With a new workbench to store all of your tools and equipment, it can feel like your personal workspace or office!
  3. Create a comfortable environment. If you live in an area with colder weather, your garage might be the last place you want to hang out on a crisp December day. Adding cozy seating, a rug and a space heater will transform your space quickly!

Another way to enhance your garage is installing a floor coating to protect the floor beneath you from spills and cracks while also making your workshop space look clean and professional. My Gorilla Garage comes in hundreds of color blends, and is completely customizable. Perhaps best of all, you can find out exactly what options are available for your surface with a FREE in-home (in-garage) estimate.  There’s no risk and no cost to start the conversation!  Contact your nearest My Gorilla Garage location today!
