Garages may not seem like the most important part of a home, but you can add a lot of value to your property by turning them into more functional spaces.
Garages are often underutilised, and are ideal spaces for adding extra storage – something that is very important to a lot of buyers – and can often accommodate a mini workbench or laundry area with a little planning.
While adding a laundry corner to your garage would require a plumber, storage is an easy weekend DIY for the home handyman.
Buy ready-made cupboards and shelves from your local hardware store, or if you’re budget cnscious, try second-hand websites to find old kitchen cabinets to mount along the garage walls.
For those with less available space, hanging storage may be a better option. Try pegboard walls with hooks for holding everything from bicycles to lawnmowers and secateurs.
