Having a home with a garage means that you can finally park your cars inside and have extra storage space, right? While the former is almost always true, it depends on how organized you are when it comes to the latter. Surely we have all been in someone's garage that we know could benefit from garage cabinets of some sort, even if they didn't necessarily use them for storage.
People intuitively understand the importance of having custom closets in a home so that they have a place for their possessions. In fact, mortgage data research firm HSH.com ranked homeowners’ pet peeves, with lack of storage space coming in first at 67%. What we're saying is, that doesn't just extend to the master bedroom and common rooms, but includes the garage as well. Allow us to introduce you to the wonders of garage storage cabinets, and you might just have a changed perception of your garage as a space in your home.
Create a Workshop
One of the most practical uses for garage cabinets is creating a workshop space out of your garage. It doesn't matter whether you're an auto mechanic, carpenter, or amateur quilter, there's something to be gained by having a dedicated space in your house for tools and materials. The garage is a wonderful place to create a mess because it's relatively easy to clean, blow scraps outside, or stain. Nobody will ever notice the paint stain in your garage because you never host dinner parties there, but they will notice the wood chips and burnt rug in your living room. Make your garage a great space to get active and get creative so that you never have to burden the rest of your home ever again. Who knows what will happen when you have a workshop?
Never Have a Mess Again
When you finally embrace the idea of garage storage cabinets, it might feel like a weight has been lifted off of your shoulders. Far too many homeowners let their garages fall into disarray and then fail to clean them up because "their cars get in the way" or "it will take too long." After coming home from a long day of work, we completely understand this attitude and sympathize. But the main benefit of garage storage cabinets means that you finally have a place to put things, potentially meaning that you never need to have a messy garage again. Even if you're not a world-class organizer and haphazardly put things into different cabinets, they're off of the floor and out of your cluttered mind. Sometimes that's all you need in order to become your best self, and garage cabinets can help you along.
Make it Decorative, Make it Modern
Many homeowners are hesitant to pull the trigger on getting garage storage cabinets because they've never seen ones that appeal to their sense of style. This is completely understandable, and we don't fault you for seeing low-quality garage cabinets and being grossed out. But please remember that when you go with quality contractors who work with design groups and high-end materials, you won't receive those results. Whether you're seeking beautiful stainless steel cabinets to match a modern household look or would be content with painted hardwood, there is something for you if you only inquire within. Make it decorative, make it modern, make it great.
They Just Make Sense
Even if you never plan on using your garage storage cabinets, you could look at them as a home value upgrade if you ever part with your property. Homes that have garage storage cabinets, especially if they're decorative and modern to go with the aesthetic of the home, make the property more attractive on the open market than the other way around. But we believe that once you have garage storage cabinets in your space, you'll almost always find a way to use them. Whether it's finally creating a workshop so that you can do creative projects, or eliminating the possibility of ever having a mess again, garage storage cabinets just make sense. So go modern, get creative, and make sure to contact Creaction Design Group whenever you're ready to take your garage to the next level!
