• Look up – the ceiling might be next. Is it insulated? If not, you can do it. The cheapest way to do this is to add fiberglass insulation. You’ll want to wear goggles and a mask so it doesn’t irritate your body. Install drywall over the insulation for a completed look. If you’re serious about keeping out the cold or the heat, consider having a professional spray insulation to seal all areas.
  • Spiff up the floors. How do you use your garage? If you’re parking your car and want to save money, clean the floor with a power washer and paint! A much better look and not too hard. If you’re using the garage as a workspace or, even, using it to entertain for children’s parties or large gatherings, consider buying some outdoor carpet that you can roll down as needed in whatever area you choose. Looking for something more permanent? Have epoxy flooring installed professionally. If you’re a talented do-it-yourselfer you may be able to handle project but follow all steps carefully.
  • No matter if you park your car in the garage, have a workshop area or even a man cave, you are probably using it for storage. Quit stacking boxes on top of boxes. You can nail shelving to the studs or add stud-mounted cabinets, drawers and counters. Or, you can go quick and easy with rolling shelves and stand-alone, wheeled cabinets that can be moved out of the way for garage maintenance.
