Upgrade Ideas for Any Garage

If you’re in need of Henderson garage repairs because your old garage door opener breaks down a lot, then you should definitely consider replacing it. While an opener may be the most obvious way to upgrade your garage, it isn’t the only way, and there are options that are cost-effective and can have a big effect on the ways in which you enjoy this space.

Ceiling Storage

If like many homeowners you use your garage for storage, then you know that you can never have enough space. Ceilings in garages tend to create a lot of space that’s goes to waste, and ceiling-mounted storage is a great way to make use of it. It’s ideal to eliminate the items you only use seasonally or on an infrequent basis. Stuff you use a lot can be kept in wall-mounted storage.

Heavy-Duty Storage

Use storage cabinets and shelves at the walls and preferably mounted so that there’s no risk of tipping over. Sure, this will eat some usable space, but you’re eating space anywhere by using the area for storage. Cabinets can be tall or tiered three or four levels high and can last for the life of a home.

Epoxy Flooring

Epoxy flooring is among the best garage upgrades a homeowner can make because it’s a one-time investment that can last many decades and stave off much cleaning and maintenance down the line. An epoxy floor also makes your garage more attractive and convenient to use.

Smartphone Integration

Finally, ditch your remote, and use your smartphone instead. It’s a much more versatile and convenient approach. You don’t necessarily have to purchase a new opener either. Depending on the age of your equipment, there may be add-ons available that work with your existing opener and let you open and close it even over the Internet.
