The Storage

The storage spaces that are created in the garage must be tailored to the tools and equipment that the homeowner owns. Some homeowners own a great many large tools that must have their own storage space. Still other homeowners have massive work benches and furniture that must be worked into the design of the room. These items must be considered first to make sure the homeowner can fit everything they need in the space.

The Work Space

When creating a work space in the garage, it is best for homeowners to remember that they can move the work space around as cars come in and out of the garage. The garage can be converted into workshop when there are no cars, but the items must be moved when it is time to put the cars back in the garage.

The Seating

Every workshop needs seating for the craftsman and the people who are also in the room. Most workshops should feature at least on wheeled chair, but the homeowner must make space for this chair in the room. The chair needs to be moved when the cars are brought back in the garage, and the garage should not feel cramped because of these items.

Most homeowners need to use their garage to park their cars, but they can use the room as a workshop when there are no cars around.
