Let's be honest: you don't want ideas that are going to prevent you from parking your car in your garage because after all, that's what it's there for. These 5 creative ideas can help you clean up clutter at home, capitalize on extra garage space, and still park your car there, if that's what you want to do.
#1 - A home gym
The garage is a great place for a home gym. You can turn the music up, open the doors for fresh air, and work out...maybe even uninterrupted. Lay down a shock-absorbent gym tiles, move your equipment out, and you're set to go.
#2 - Indoor play space
If your kids have skateboards, hover boards, roller blades, or bicycles, and you live a climate that's angry in the winter, your garage is the perfect place for your kids to expel excess energy and get some exercise when there's snow on the ground. No prep is needed!
#3 - A man cave
A fridge, a big screen TV, and some seating is all it takes to use the open stall in your garage as a place to host guys' night. If you have more space, consider air hockey, pool, or a card table, too.
#4 - A craft room
Is your home overtaken by sewing and scrapbooking supplies? If so, consider using part of your garage for craft supply storage and a murphy-style craft table that can be tucked away when not in use.
#5 - Storage
Storage shelves suspended 18-24" from the ceiling of your garage can add substantial storage (a perfect solution for those totes of holiday décor) without taking up any floor or parking space at all. If your garage is wide enough, you can bring the shelves all the way down to the ground.

Whether you're trying to sell your home or just spruce up it's appearance, a curbside view can be most visitors first impression of the style and beauty of your home. Driving through a neighborhood, it can be easy to spot houses that blow you away and those that clearly need some maintenance or repair. Don't let your home be one of the latter. Use these tips to increase your home's curbside appeal:
Upgrade or Repair the Accessories
Creating a beautiful space isn't just about the house itself. Make sure that your home's "accessories" are up to date and well-kept. This can include items like the mailbox, house numbers, planters, etc.
While the viewer's eye is mainly drawn to the house itself, they may be seeing your space from all the way down the street if an interesting mailbox draws their eye in either a positive or negative way. Don't forget to keep these items up-to-date and looking their best!
Paint the Doors
Most viewer's eyes are drawn to the doors of a home, as they serve as the entrances and therefore the first thing on someone's mind who may be visiting or even just driving by.
Adding a little bright paint to the front door or garage door that goes with the other colors of the home can really make your house stand out and bring some charm that makes your house memorable and inviting.
Replace Exterior Lighting
Your beautiful home deserves to be seen all day and all night! Create a welcoming space at any time of the day by replacing or adding exterior lighting.
Replace dying bulbs with lights that offer a more natural white light and, if certain parts of the exterior could use some illumination, don't be afraid to add a new lantern or wall light!
