Garages were originally intended for storing cars in, but as home trends and families have changed throughout the decades, garages are not always now used for car storage. Many families now have two cars, and most single garage would not be able to store two cars anyway, and other households often feel that the space in a garage is not best used for the car.
Not to mention the fact that it is much easier to get in a car on a drive and go, rather than having to open the door then lock up the garage afterwards.
Some people choose to use their garage as storage for household items. If it is organised well, a garage is a useful place for all manner of things – Christmas decorations, large and bulky objects such as lawnmowers and cleaning equipment. It is a good idea to have a look at some specialist storage equipment for a garage such as this shelving Ireland based company Rackzone.
It is also a good place to be used by an avid gardener – a garage can be used as a potting shed, as well as a place to store plants that need to be protected from the frost over winter, and garden furniture.
If you work at home, this is also another great use for the garage. Converting it into a home office or workshop is a great way to create the space that you need in order to be able to get your work done efficiently.
