Empty Garage? Make It a Bonus Room

Turing Your Garage into a Bonus Room
If you are short on space and need an extra room in your home, re-purposing the garage is a great option. Even though it’s traditionally used for parking the car, the garage can make a great additional room for any home, including a gym, playroom, media room, office, art studio, laundry room, craft room, a bar, workshop or other space. All you need is some imagination and a little elbow grease to get started.
What Do You Want Your Bonus Room To Be?
Begin by designing your new bonus room, while keeping in mind all the storage you’ll need for the items that are currently kept in the garage. Idaho Garage Solutions has professionals that can help you to choose the best storage and floor coating options. Remember to consider whether you need additional electrical, water, insulation, or heating/cooling. If you need these items, plan to get help from the appropriate professionals.
Next, clean out the clutter. Decide what items to donate or throw away, and what items you need to store long-term (like holiday decorations) or keep easily accessible (like tools or sporting equipment). This will make it easier to decide which storage solutions will best meet your bonus room needs, whether it’s cabinets, overhead storage, a slat-wall storage system, or a combination of these solutions.
From The Floor Up
Once you have taken care of the storage, it’s time to focus on the floors. An Epoxy Flake floor coating gives your floors the durability that will last a lifetime, looks great, is easy to clean and maintain, and leaves you worry free about stains, spills or cracks in the concrete.  When your Epoxy floor gets dirty all you have to do is sweep it.  And if it needs a good cleaning from everyday use, just use a mop with warm water and a tablespoon of Simple Green with 3/4 of a gallon and mop it.  Wala! Your epoxy floor will look brand new once again.  It’s so easy!
Enhance the look of your new bonus room by choosing from a multitude of colors, styles and textures that you can custom match to your décor a flaked floor.
The Idaho Garage Solutions Epoxy Flake floor coating is easy to clean and maintain with water and a mild (non-filming) detergent, and requires no special maintenance or waxing. Our flooring textures and final-coat preparations provide an evenly distributed, slip-resistant surface with a beautiful high-gloss shine. Additionally, they are UV tolerant so the color of your floor will not fade, cloud up or yellow over time.
After the floor is completed, it’s time to decorate, bring in the furniture, cabinets/shelving or equipment,  and start enjoying your new bonus room. Using the garage as a new room is a resourceful solution for any home owner short on space.
