Building a dream garage can take time and commitment, but it will all be worth it. You will need to determine what exactly you would like to have in your garage and what you will need in order to feel comfortable in your garage. Here are a few tips and gadgets to guide you on your journey to building your ultimate dream garage.
For the mechanically inclined car enthusiast, a car lift is the perfect item to have in a garage. Don’t get me wrong; we’re always happy to do your car repair for you, and we think we do a pretty darn good job. But for smaller repairs that you want to do yourself, this is a must-have. A lift will allow for you to work on the tight spaces of your car by giving you more access to those tough-to-reach spots. Both hydraulic and electric lifts are available, each with their own advantages and disadvantages.
A garage is the perfect place to put a wine vault. The floor of a garage is already made of concrete that can be easily sealed, and any empty garage space can be used for the vault. Wine vaults require a good amount of preparation, to ensure that the wine remains cool and under favorable conditions, so it will be best to determine where you would like your vault to go within the garage. I like this corner vault that won’t take up too much floor space.
If you are more experienced with building cars and have knowledge on car tuning, having your own dyno will allow for you to optimize your car as you work on it from the comfort of your home. An in-home dyno will also eliminate the need for you to travel with a car that needs a tune and may be on the verge of catastrophe. With your own dyno, you will develop a skill for tuning that very few people have; a future service that you can offer people.
A lounge, or man-cave, in a garage is a great place to relax and kick-back after a hard day’s work. Your lounge can have a variety of things that allow for you to be comfortable. Items from couches, televisions, and pool tables can be placed in the lounge. You can include a bar, a mini-fridge, and even a fireplace if it suits you. The sky is your limit with things that you can include in the lounge. According to Rules of Renovation, the goal of this portion of your garage should be to give you a comfortable place to relax and enjoy the view of your dream garage and project cars.
Armed with patience and with a plan, building a dream garage is a very realistic goal. Determine your needs and wants, and plan out how to meet these desires. Along with the suggestions on this list, there are a variety of creative ideas that you can add to your garage. At the end, you will want to build a space that you deem as worthy of your approval.
