5 Great Summer Ideas for your Garage

For most of the people a garage is just somewhere for their car, garden equipment and for stuff that doesn't have a proper home. However as long as it is watertight and in good condition it could be much more useful this summer. Here are 5 great ideas for you to think about.

1

Home Gym

Home Gym

Creating a gym in your garage will save you money on expensive gym memberships and on time travelling to and fro. A few basic pieces of equipment - exercise bike or treadmill and some free weights will be more than enough to start you off and you can add equipment later as you decide what you like.

Drinks Cooler

Drinks Cooler

In summer most people enjoy having friends and family over for some outside entertaining. However, finding enough space in the fridge to keep drinks cool can be a problem. Why not purchase a spare fridge and keep it in the garage. You can even make use of it during Christmas and New Year where there is never enough space for all food and drink that we consume over the festive period

3

Hang out for teenagers

In summer most teenagers want to hang out with their friends. While we may want to keep a close eye on them we may not appreciate having numbers of them in our house every day. By making your garage comfortable, you can give keep an eye on them without infringing too much on their privacy. Why not put down some cheap flooring, paint the walls a light colour to brighten the space and add some cushions. As long as its parent free, your teenager will be happy.

Outdoor entertaining

Outdoor entertaining

In summer we enjoy the chance to entertain outside. Unfortunately in Scotland it has a habit of raining unexpectedly. Why not use your garage as a ‘staging area’. You can set up a drinks area inside and if there is a light shower there is somewhere for your guests to mill around in until it brightens up.

Do you sometimes find it a struggle to fit two weeks of luggage plus the whole family into the car? If so, why not invest in a roof box? It gives you loads of extra storage and will last for years. When it is not in use it can be easily stored in the garage overhead or on one of the walls.
