An Outline Of The Different Designs For Garages
With all the garages in the UK being used for a variety of different purposes there are many people who don’t have any idea of how garages can be designed and what they can be used for. Whether you have just bought a new garage or have been living in your current one for many years, there are some things that you need to take into consideration before you start putting up walls and putting in fixtures.
Building a Garage
When you are building a garage, it is a good idea to start with an empty shell. This is because when you are planning to build it up, you will have to consider the design, flooring and any other extra fittings that will be needed.
Of course the majority of garages are not going to need any more room than you already have, but if you want to maximise the benefits of this type of building space then there are a few things that you should take into account. For example, you may be able to buy larger and more useful storage boxes, which will help to improve the design of your garage, by increasing its functionality.
Another idea that you could use to extend the size of your garage is to hang out certain doors. It is always recommended that you get the smallest door possible because bigger doors will make your garage look less inviting.
You may also be able to add windows to your garages, particularly if they are free-standing as this can help to bring out the designs of the areas in which they are located. If you want to try and have a more dramatic change, you may need to fit in a shingle over the windows.
These shingles are designed to cover various dimensions and they come in a number of different sizes and materials. However you may want to consider whether or not you would like to keep the roofing intact or you may want to install a shingle roof that has been cut to fit over the existing roofing.
If you have a main entrance that is hard to access, then you may be able to create a kind of ramp or even a staircase that will provide easy access. This will make your garage seem more inviting and the ramp will ensure that your car can be easily accessed.
Usable Floor Space
Another good design idea for garages is to think about adding artificial trees onto them. Although this is not a very practical solution as most garages already have trees in them, this does bring out the design elements of the area and help to show off your space.
If you find that you need extra storage or heavier furniture, then it is probably a good idea to consider using a loft for these items. A loft will increase the usable floor space of your garage and it will also allow you to add some form of storage.
