Make the Most of Your Garage at Arden

Most homeowners underestimate the potential a garage offers. While it’s meant to store and protect your cars, it’s a usable space that can be so much more! Especially if you have an additional one-car, a three-car or even a tandem garage – all of which are options you can find in homes at Arden. Here are some ideas and tips to make the most of this often underutilized space.

Keep things organized.

When people think of the garage, usually they think of storage. And it’s a great use of the space! Adding some free-standing or wall-mounted shelves gives you vertical space to keep things like holiday decorations, tools and sports equipment out of the way. You could even add in some cabinets and a small work bench to make the space even more usable!

Hit the gym.

While Arden has a state-of-the-art fitness center located at the amenity center, if you’re a fitness guru then having your very own gym can be like a dream come true. Line the floor with foam mats, set up your favorite equipment and you can easily turn your garage into a dedicated workout space. And when the weather is nice, you’ll want to make sure to open up the door to enjoy the breeze!

Get creative.

If you prefer paint brushes to dumbbells, then turning your garage into an at-home art studio might be more your speed. Set up your easel and paints, line shelves with boxes of supplies and get creative! You could line the floor with recyclable paper to keep things clean, or not – it is the garage after all.

Host movie marathons.

A home cinema is probably one of the most unique things you can turn your garage into! Line up some comfy couches and seating, and set up a screen and projector to have movie marathons every weekend. You could even set up a minibar and snack stand tucked in the corner. Popcorn, anyone?

Make it a mudroom.

Often, garages are used as a main entryway to the home. Transforming the area by the door into a mudroom is a smart way to utilize the space! Leave a tray for dirty shoes, hang some hooks for dripping coats or even set up some shelves for on-the-go items like the dog’s leash or keys to the mailbox.
