When contractors first started building garages as part of personal homes, the goal was for people to park their cars inside. However, if you drive by any suburban home with a two-car garage, you may see cars out in the driveway. This is because many of these garages have become storage units, especially for homes that do not have attics or basements. Installing garage cabinets can increase your home’s value by up to $10,000 and help you to organize that space. Here’s how.
You Can Use It to Declutter
When you decide to sell your home, chances are you may still be living inside it. One of the most difficult places to clean up and make presentable for showings is the garage full of stuff. Cabinets help you to declutter and pack this stuff away. However, be sure to do so neatly as potential homebuyers may want to look inside to see how big the space is behind the closed doors.
It Treats Garages Realistically
When a potential homebuyer views your garage, their first thought is whether or not they can fit the family vehicles inside. However, by installing garage cabinets, you propose a very real solution for how this space will actually be used. Aside from storing stuff, many people also use the garage as a workshop, so they will be happy to know there is already a workbench or place for storing tools.
Adds a Stylish Touch
Garages are arguably one of the most boring rooms in a house. Four walls, concrete floors and one or two garage doors characterize this space. When you add stylish custom-built cabinets to the garage, it adds personality to a room so many people overlook to spend more time in the kitchen or master bedrooms. This may help to leave a lasting impression of exactly the right kind on the right buyer.
Whether you’re a car enthusiast, carpenter or shopping addict, chances are you could use some storage options in the garage. Garage cabinets provide a sophisticated solution on a small footprint.
