Is your current garage dark, dreary, and depressing? Let the light in with a few windows. Adding windows or skylights will make your building look custom and will offer awesome natural lighting.

3. Wash Off with a Sinkgarage-storage-worldwide-steel-buildings

What happens in the garage should stay in the garage! If you’re constantly being nagged to stop tracking your grease and grime into your family’s kitchen, adding a sink to your garage can make it stop. The ability to wash up where you work will not only keep your garage a cleaner space, but your wife will thank you.

4. Stock Up On Storage

The garage is the top place for clutter to accumulate, but the right storage can help. Add cabinets and a few matching shelves and hooks to allow access to everyday tools while eliminating the eyesore of built up junk.  

5. Power Up with Electricity

If you’re not wired for electricity, you’re wasting tons of potential in that space. Add outlets in convenient spaces to expand the opportunity for future electrical needs. Not to mention, without electricity you can’t have these awesome features below…

6. Turn It Up with Audio/Soundgarage-with-tv

Who says the garage can’t double as a man cave? Install a sound system and flat screen television. Enjoy the big game with the boys, or make DIY jobs a breeze by streaming instructional videos, right in your workshop.

7. Lock It Down with Security

You’ve invested in some really cool stuff, but make sure you protect it! Don’t forget to add the garage to your security system and install security sensors on your new doors and windows. If you want to further control who has the keys to your castle, consider adding a keypad lock to your door with your own personalized security code.

8. Workbench

9. Man Lighting

Who needs mood lighting when you can have man lighting? Windows may improve natural lighting conditions, but some special projects require special lighting. Add high-quality LED overhead lighting and dimmers for more lighting options.

10. Keep Your Cool

Working on a project, or having your buddies over to enjoy your new digs, means you will need refreshments. The same reasoning for the sink, what happens in the garage stays in the garage, applies here. Forget about trips back and forth to the kitchen! Install a refrigerator and keep your refreshments right where they belong.
