Did you know homes over the last few years have only spent an average of 31 days on the market?

Homes are selling quicker than ever before because people learn which upgrades make them most appealing. Unfortunately, one area people often tend to neglect is the garage.

Your garage can be much more than just a place to park your car. In fact, it can serve a great purpose to you now and bring you more money in the future. So keep reading to learn what to include in your next garage update.

1. A Stronger Floor

One of the garage updates you should consider is upgrading the floor, so it’s stronger and more durable. Polyurea floor coatings are a great option! They go over your existing garage floor and can add a unique design, strength, durability, and moisture resistance.

A coating like this keeps your garage in better condition, prevents slips, and keeps it from getting stained and ruined by oil, gas, and salt.

2. A New Door

Garage doors are responsible for 20-30,000 injuries every year. Having a new garage door installed can significantly lessen the chance of someone getting hurt.

Aside from that, newer models are much more modern looking, which helps boost curb appeal and add value to your home from that perspective. And newer doors also come with better safety features and technology like remotes.

3. Insulate the Space

Insulating your garage is one of the garage update ideas many people don’t focus on.

Keeping it warm is crucial if you plan to use your garage for more than parking, like hobbies, building things, hanging out, etc. Something as simple as adding insulation can make the space much warmer than it would be without out.

If you use a space heater, you’ll be able to be comfortable in your garage all year long.

4. Storage Solutions

A garage is a great place to store items. But if you don’t store them correctly, things can get ruined or take up so much space you don’t have room for anything else.

Implementing smart storage solutions like heavy-duty racks and shelves built into the wall can save you space and help your garage be multi-purpose.

5. Add Adequate Lighting

Finding your way through a garage can be difficult or even dangerous if there isn’t proper lighting. 

Good lights throughout will help you feel comfortable and give you ample light to carry out projects within the space. Prospective buyers will love motion sensor lights in particular, so you don’t end up leaving them on and forgetting about them until the next time you’re in the garage.

Include These Things in Your Next Garage Update

Taking the time to do a quick garage update can add additional living space to your home and create a multi-purpose area you can enjoy all year round.

Don’t waste your garage by only using it as a storage area for your car. Instead, add value to your home with these small changes!
