Using your garage as a workshop

Having a garage can be a huge help when it comes to storage but most of us just fill them with junk that we don’t really need any more. This can mean that any spare room you do have cannot be used for anything useful.

There are many different uses for a garage such as a place to store your car, a gym area, a place to store your gardening equipment such as strimmer’s and lawn mowers or even a workshop. If you are considering turning your garage in to a workshop then there are some things you need to thnk carefully about.

Firstly you need to decide if you are going to turn the whole garage in to a workshop or only part of it. IF you are going to only be using part of it, you may want to put up some petitions or section off a corner. You will need to have space for a work bench and some tools and organisation is key to get the most out of the space. Shelving and hanging racks will allow you ensure that everything has its own place so you can keep it tidy and organised. You need to check that you have power to the garage. If your garage is attached to your house, there are likely outlets in your garage already. If it is a separate garage, however, you’ll want to double-check that you have access to power.
