You probably already know that the garage was the birthplace of some of the top billion dollar companies in the world. Unfortunately, this life-changing living space is not given as much credit as it deserves. Why? Nobody knows.
So, maybe you just bought some property or moved in some new area and are thinking of customizing your garage with contemporary designs. It won’t be easy. Don’t worry though. Here are some few tips prepared exclusively just to help you out.
One challenge when choosing a garage design is whether to go for a detached or attached garage. The detached might seem tempting, but it would be more advisable to go for an attached model. The first reason is convenience, especially during harsh weather conditions.
Just imagine your bathroom was a couple of meters from your house and you had to defecate, in winter! Get the picture?
Besides that, the attached garage has cheaper ventilation and electrical installation costs, thus enabling you to save some of that hard-earned cash.
Contrast for beauty
A contrasting look will definitely boost your garage’s overall look as compared to a plain uniform design. For starters, you could try using wooden doors and stone veneer siding. Not only would this fit your contrast needs, but it would also add a more natural outlook to your garage.
Additionally, you could also try painting. Warning! Don’t DIY this if you are not a professional painter. Try using vibrant colors for the garage doors and something soft for the outer regions.
Remember to use the right blends though or else you’ll end up with a circus. White and grey would not be a bad choice for a modern look.
Lo and behold, a disappearing act!
Automate your garage for more space. Now, this is not just garage doors but the entire garage floor as well. Yes, you can automate your floor by installing a disappearing underground car park, which will make your garage the new centerpiece of your entire property. For the doors, you can check out garage opener product reviews for great options.
With more space, you will be able to convert limited garage space into a car park, man cave, band room, or workspace simultaneously. It will cost you some extra bucks though.
Combine this with some little deluxe fittings and quality furniture and you’ll be on a whole other level of ‘bat cave’ cool! Perhaps even the new talk of the neighborhood.
Edge with style
Enough with the square garage! It’s time for something different, daring, and stylish. Edging your garage is great. In fact, the edgier your garage is the more stylish and elegant it looks. Here’s a challenge for you though. Be creative with your roofing. For instance, you could install double sloping roofs that slant in opposite sideways directions. Avoid the traditional front to back slope or central peaked slope.
In case you feel a bit daring, you could go for curved garage edges and walls to give you some sort of spaceship design. This will make your garage open up a little bit of room, not to mention increase its overall contemporary visual appeal. You’ll need to consult a garage architect to help you out.
