Do You Need A Garage Remodeling Contractor

The first room that most people think of when they are considering remodeling their home is usually the kitchen or the bathroom. The garage doesn’t usually come to mind immediately. In fact, it may even be the last place that people chose to remodel in their home. This shouldn’t be the case. There are actually a lot of different benefits than can come with remodeling a home.

Every homeowner uses their garage for different reasons. It is a multi-function room that can be used for just about whatever purpose a person needs. It is obviously most commonly used for car storage, or really just storage of any kind. Some people have turned their garages into workshops of some kind too. There is no limit to what you can do with a garage. If you are considering a remodel in your home you should consider including your garage in that process. Here are some great reasons why.

1. Value – This is the most obvious reasons to remodel any part of your home. Many renovations can pay for themselves or even create a profit with the increased value that they have versus the cost of doing the remodel. Garage remodels typically have a pretty good return on investment

2. Hang out spot – As your family gets bigger and takes up more space you are going to want somewhere that you can hang out. An air conditioned garage is perfect for that. Run the central air or install a wall unit in your garage to keep it cool. You can also get a card table or a fridge.

3. It’s not expensive – Because the garage is so bare bones to being with, it isn’t very expensive to add to it or change it. The materials that are used in the garage usually aren’t as expensive either. It can be a fairly low-cost way to add value to your quality of life.

4. More space – Maybe your kid got a new car? Maybe you and your spouse want to keep both of your cars in the garage. Increasing your garage to be a 2-car garage will add a great deal of value to your home and make it much more desirable if you decide to sell it.

Don’t look past your garage when you are considering remodeling, There is a lot of value in that room. You may not see it yet. That’s because you haven’t remodeled it! Contact a garage remodeling contractor near you for more information.

Welcoming Fall: Six Tips for Fall Organizing

Fall Organizing

 

Fall is finally on it’s way, The leaves are starting to change and soon the scenery around your home will be surrounded by beautiful reds and oranges. If you’re the type of person who loves to organize your bedroom every time a new season comes, welcoming fall is all about fall organizing and decorating your room for fall! By rearranging your room, cleaning out your closet, and bringing in some new tones, you don’t have to get bored with your room. Here are 6 fall organizing tips that will help you get rid of the summer feel in your room so you can welcome the back-to-school season in style:

#1: Get Your Space Ready for Back-to-School

If you’re a student or you have children, you’ll need to focus time on organizing for back-to-school. If you’re going to be studying in your own room, create a space where you can comfortably sit on your computer or do homework. Also, invest in a hook where you can hang backpacks and outfits you’ve picked out for the next day.

#2: Get Rid of the Summer Clutter

Summer is the perfect season for items to start cluttering up around your bedroom. If your sandals are scattered around your floor, your tank tops are spilling out of your drawers, and you’re cramped for space, it’s time to declutter so you can make room for all of the fall necessities. If it’s already starting to cool down and you won’t be wearing your shorts, tanks, sandals, and summer apparel, downsize. Keep the items you will want to wear next summer season, donate others, and put the keepers in storage. You can use plastic bins in the garage, put items in storage, or cleverly use foot stools and under-the-bed baskets.

#3: Create Space for Your Winter Jackets

If you love dressing warm, you’re more than excited that you can finally bulk up and wear that beautiful cardigan. Now that you’ve created space, it’s time to build your fall and winter wardrobe. You should have space in your closet with the room you’ve made by purging summer clothes. Create a section for your winter jackets, invest in pants hangers, and use dress space for your leggings and sweaters that can’t hang.

#4: Bring in the Fall Colors Creatively

You don’t have to take up a lot of floor space by bringing in a sofa or other piece of furniture that adds color to your room. If you want to bring in the fall colors, turn your fall-colored clutter into a special personalized type of decor. Your old fall issues of magazines, books, and trays can all work as decor if they’re stacked properly.

#5: Choose Smarter Season Appropriate Furniture

Fall is a cozy season where you might just want to lay back on a loveseat and read a book. You’ll be spending more time indoors, and you should have a comfortable room that caters to you. If you don’t have space for a chair, make space. Get rid of the end tables and use your dressers as tables so that you have room for a comfy chair.

#6: It’s All in the Bedding

Tie together your new fall-tastic look with the perfect bedspread that is decorative and keeps you warm. Select the best print that blends with your decor, and also invest in pillows and other blankets that make the bed a focal point.

Don’t start the back-to-school season unorganized. By setting aside time before your busy schedule to get organized, you can welcome fall the right way. From your organizing your wardrobe, to welcoming new pieces, it’s all in the details.
