Garage Decorating Ideas For A Tight Budget

by admin on January 31, 2012 · 0 comments

Many homeowners dream of redoing their garage and making it not only more beautiful, but also more functional. Unfortunately, a custom garage can often come at a steep price. It does not always have to be this way, however. There are many things that can be done to transform a space even on a tight budget. Below are some decorating ideas that can add style without hurting your wallet.

Drab concrete floors can feel institutional. There are many colored floor sealers that can add some warmth and texture to poured concrete floors. Just as easy to apply are some of the flooring kits that can make a home garage look like a showroom. These kits generally include a strong resin that is embedded with decorative mica chips for a classy touch. Either of these projects can be tackled in a weekend or less and the cost can be less than $200 for many garages.

Boring plaster walls can be dressed up very cheaply. Vintage racing graphics or automotive ads can be blown up on large paper at a local copy center. These black and white banners can be touched up by hand with dashes of color and can make for a very striking decorative feature in a garage. This can usually be done from start to finish for less than $25.

Lastly, don't overlook a durable garage door paint. This can transform a home and bring a tire door back to life. Oxidized metal or weathered wood can be made to look almost new again. Most doors will only require a gallon or two for great coverage and this is another inexpensive project with a total cost of less than $100.

Combine one or more of these ideas to make a serious impact. Ideas are always free so use your imagination and plan to make some changes this spring.
