If you are considering adding a separate garage to your property, or you’re remodeling your current garage, you may want to consider the trends in garage remodels. These trends indicate what homebuyers are looking for, and what garage remodel can increase your home’s resale value. The trends can also advise you on what is considered the more stylish option if you are concerned about designing a garage that looks contemporary. If you are curious about the current garage design trends, read the following list for the factors which may be best for your future remodel.
The Two-Car Garage May Be Too Small
For decades, most garages tended to look the same and have the same features. However, some trends are changing. A lot of homes now contain several people with different cars for each. If you live in a multi-generational home or require separate vehicles for personal and professional use, you may need something bigger than the two-car garage. Four-car garages are becoming increasingly common because of these space demands.
Garages Are Moving
For several years, garage design trends were for garages attached to the front side of the house. Now, however, more garages are being moved to the back of the residence, or built detached. Rear garages help to emphasize the front of your house and make the garages and your cars more discreet than when they are parked in the front.
Design a Garage That’s Inviting
Your garage is often the first part of your house that you see when you come home every day. As you park your car after a long day at work, you want to see a space that is warm, inviting, and well-designed. Small touches like adding color to the walls and a new base molding can make a huge impact in improving the look of your garage. T&G Builders offer colored walls and base molding as a standard with every project we build to ensure your remodel comes with a fresh new look.
Garage Design Trends That Sell
Garages are more than a utilitarian space. Homeowners want to incorporate some style alongside functionality in their garages; they don’t just want the space for their cars. Before you remodel, consider adding some of these design elements which have a good return on investment.
- An organizational system featuring bins, pull-out drawers, shelving, cabinets, and closets
- Wall hooks for garden tools and bicycles
- Extra space that can be used as a workshop or hobby room
- An playroom for children, especially if the home has no attic or basement
- Enough room to park three cars
- Painted and sealed or polypropylene-tiled floors along with finished walls and ceilings give the garage a clean, fresh look
Paying attention to garage design trends can help you build a stylish, modern garage that will attract future homebuyers should you have to sell in the future.
