Garage And Tool Cabinets

There are some garages that you could absolutely move in to and live in. No need for a house because the garage looks so nice. How can you make your own garage look at least a little bit closer to the heaven you saw on TV or in a magazine? You could get some garage furniture of your own and install some cabinets to create more storage that has a finished look to it. The details are what make a garage appear more finished, even if it is already organized. Hiding it away behind cupboards looks a bit better than storing it on a metal shelf. What other tips can you utilize to love your garage more?

Purpose of Cabinets

The purpose of the cabinets in the garage is not to just stuff them full, but to manage your stuff so that others donít have to see it. Metal shelving works, but everything you own is on display to anyone who comes in the garage. For people with windows, that could be bad because potential burglars could peek in and assess your goods. When things are behind closed doors, it is harder to assess and then bother with. If you canít see it, then there must not be anything worth in value, right?

Cabinets are a sneaky way of making a garage look finished. Put some nice wood on the doors, add handles and it seems like an extension of the kitchen instead of just a garage. The finished ďfeelĒ of it is what makes people fall in love with the room, not that it is a garage that is organized.

Cost of Cabinets

Depending on how many cabinets you install in the garage will be a part of what determines the cost. One cabinet with double doors will probably only cost a couple of hundred dollars. But if you install cabinet along a whole wall, on the top and the bottom, then you might have a lot more money tied up. Cabinets along a wall, and ones mounted to the wall will probably run closer to several thousand dollars. Depending on the wood you choose, the cabinet surface or countertop and even the hardware on the handles could raise the price significantly. Spend what you need in order to have a nice, organized garage without going overboard. Spending money on details in the garage probably wonít be returned if you ever sell the place.
