ADDING GARAGE PERSONALITY
The garage can be one of the most generic and bland areas of your home. Surprisingly, adding a little color or personality to your garage gives you the motivation to keep the area organized. There are a few ways to add a unique touch to your garage to set it apart from other garages in your neighborhood. Giving the garage personality doesn’t have to cost a fortune or take forever. From painting your garage entry to adding a mudroom, there are many ways to give your garage personality that you’re looking for to make your garage feel like an extension of your home.
Vinyl Lettering: Attaching vinyl letters to the garage door leading into your home adds a touch of class to an otherwise classless door. Many homeowners have created short messages to greet people on the way into the home, others have taken the opportunity to attach the house number to the door in a stylish way.
Painted Stairs: If you have stairs that lead up to the garage door into your home, updating the paint brings an entirely new look to your garage. Whether you restain the stairs, choose a bright color or a muted neutral color, new paint makes your home look all the more inviting to those first visiting while giving your garage personality.
Wall Art: Throwing a little art on the wall in your garage is not something most homeowners do, but they should! When you think of your dream garage, there’s probably some kind of art on the wall. For example, many garages have a clock on the wall - why not jazz it up with a decorative clock?
Giving your garage personality can change the way you see the space. It’s easier to find the motivation to keep clutter out of an area that you worked hard to create.
