Great Makeover Ideas for New Zealand Garages

Great Makeover Ideas for New Zealand Garages

The garage is often the first room you see when you arrive at a home, but in a lot of cases, it’s the most neglected! Your garage needn’t be cold and soulless, imagine the garage as an extension of your home and give it some love!

Above, clockwise from top left: A slim section of wall houses a potting bench & gardening hub; hang the whole family's gear on one large wall rack; set up a side hustle or compact workshop; pops of colour provide an atmosphere of relaxed fun.

  • All great makeovers start with a good old scrub down.
  • If you have leftover paint from interior projects, it can be put to use in the garage for a perfect match.

Above, clockwise from top left: A cubby for each child's gear; what a great idea sneaking a shower into a corner of this multi-use space; a mezzanine takes this garage to another level; massive shelves + multiple storage bins for the win.

  • Adding a floor covering can make a huge difference to the feel of a garage and as a bonus, it will be easier to keep clean.
  • Updating storage options can create space for your hobbies, projects and even a side hustle.

  • A poorly fitting garage door will let in draughts and is susceptible to break-ins. Update to a New Zealand made Garador and you’ll have all the benefits of reliability and quality, with a tough, fade-resistant and beautiful Colorsteel® exterior.
  • Purchase a door and opener combo from Garador and you’ll have technology on your side plus an extended warranty!
  • Smartphone control is the new normal in our households, now it also applies to your garage door.

Above, top and bottom left: Sticking to a black colour pallette has done wonders for this garage makeover. Top right: create zones by utilising the backs of doors, add towel racks & 's' hooks, sorted. Bottom right: an old skateboard becomes a nostalgic storage unit.
