Use your garage to pursue your passion. Cars are the first thing people think about when they think about the garage. But for some people that means the place they store their car, and for others it means the place they repair, restore, and worship the thing they love the most. If you fall into the second category you are a true car enthusiast, and that means your garage is your temple. But it’s not complete without the following features.
Garage Must-Haves for a Car Enthusiast
The Right Tools for the Job
It’s going to take more than a set of wrenches for you to keep your favorite ride in perfect running order. You are also going to need an air compressor to power more heavy duty tools, and a lift to give you easy access to the undercarriage. You’ll also want enough space and storage to keep all your essential equipment close at hand.
A Way to Tackle the Mess
If you’re really working on a car you don’t expect to come out of it clean. First and foremost, your garage is going to need to stand up to the drips and spills that are inevitable, and an average concrete slab won’t cut it. Upgrading to a sealed or track-style floor helps a lot. You will also want to have a sink on site so that you can wash away the grime rather than track it into the house with you.
A Space that Helps You Work
The average garage is built to park cars and store rakes, not to facilitate the kind of projects you want to tackle. Make sure your garage is primed for work by installing extra lighting so that you can see every detail of your vehicle. If you want to really get ambitious, you can install a double door that lets you drive straight through the space. This also gives open up to extra room to work.
The Equipment for the Experience
Your tools are essential. But if you plan on spending a lot of time in your garage you’re going to need a few other things to round out the space. A work bench is a must, and for maximum utility it should be surrounded by convenient storage. You will probably also want to have a stereo on hand because who wants to work in silence? And considering that you will be working up a sweat, a mini fridge can keep your favorite cold beverage right beside your favorite car.
