A garage can feel quite cold and dark most times, often giving us anxiety when entering, because of the natural mess that can occur in this space. With the new season here, let's turn those cold and dark spaces into a more welcoming, convenient and peaceful place. Transforming your garage can be as easy as updating and reorganizing the storage space, bringing more light or remodeling the unused garage into a functional work area or place for entertaining your guests this summer. All it takes is some imagination, some time and effort and the final look depends on your vision. To help you out, here will be 3 DIY garage transformation ideas to tackle this spring and give your garage a new breath of fresh air before the summer.
Organized Garage Storage
Adding storage space to a garage is one of the most effective ways to improve its appearance. It can be surprising how much room and floorspace an efficient storage organization on walls can free up. Furthermore, tidying up and organizing the natural mess that can appear in a garage easily is the first step to make your garage feel more welcoming and convenient. Rather than hiding it from everyone's eyes, installing cabinets can give it a clean look and add a bit more style to welcome others confidently. Installing closed cabinets is a great way to put everything out of sight and avoid mess by organizing everything conveniently and putting the important things a hand reach away. As seen in the photo above, a closed storage space can definitely make a difference and avoid any visible mess.
If there is no separate dedicated space in your house for a kitchen pantry or extra storage, organizing unused space in your garage is a great option to optimize it and make it more useful. As nowadays kitchen cabinets not only go well in kitchens but the style can be used for other spaces as well, installing cabinets in your garage for needed and useful things that are asking for more space, is a perfect way to transform the unused place to an organized and tidy storage. In the photo above we can see how Kristyn has created a very convenient and charming storage space with an eye-catching detail by covering the wall with the Autumn Florals Nursery Removable Wallpaper, making the space not only organized and tidy but fun as well.
Bringing More Light
A garage can seem and feel quite dark and unwelcoming. Make your garage feel more spacious and brighter by changing the inside surface to a lighter color.
It is often a neglected space, when it comes to design, detail or pop of color. Therefore, bringing more light inside by covering walls with wallpaper can be an original idea to add some fun and warmth to the space and make it more welcoming. As seen in the photo above, covering your garage walls with wallpaper such as the Neutral Palm Leaf Removable Wallpaper
used in the photo above, can give a completely different feeling in the space. A garage like this can give you a perfect place for a private relaxing workout in the warmer season.
Repurposing Your Garage Space
Perhaps your garage is actually a spacious unused space with a lot of potential? If you do not use the garage to park your car, you can repurpose this area to add more space to your home. As working from home is still very popular, creating a home office space or a studio is still very common. If your house does not have any extra room for a separate dedicated work area, a great option is to utilize the unused garage space to a private and spacious work zone with lots of room for storage.

We hope these 3 garage transformation ideas will help you to get ready and work on your vision for your garage makeover project to make it a brighter, more convenient and welcoming space for this season.
