If you’re looking to increase the value of your home, you might consider upgrading your outdoor spaces, appliances and tiles, but did you know that your garage can increase the value of your home as well?
According to Australian Property Investor, building a new garage can add somewhere between $50,000 and $70,000 to your home’s overall value, depending on the location of the home.
If you already have a garage, a few simple additions can make your daily life easier, and add dollars to your home’s overall value.
Here are our top four garage upgrades that can add value to your home.
Lighting upgrade: brighten up and shine
Garages will often be home to boxes, bikes and cars, and there’s nothing worse than a bruised shin because you can’t see properly in your garage.
Instead of a standard globe light, try choosing batten lights which provide an instant, even spread of light across your garage space. Here are a few examples for inspiration.
Storage upgrade: maximise valuable garage space
Storage is a huge consideration for homeowners these days, so it’s important to consider how you’ll store all your garage items. Using open wall shelving maximises your garage space and allows you to see all your items at a glance.
Tool racks hung on the wall will also help to organise your items and reduce the ‘broom and shovel corner’ that is common in many garages. Ceiling storage with bike hooks can also help you keep your bikes safe, organised and out of the way. Check out these great ideas!
Upgrade your garage door opener: automate and improve efficiency
A manual garage door is not only clunky and difficult to open, it can be a real turn off for prospective buyers if you want to sell your home. An unreliable or noisy garage door opener can leave an equally poor impression.
Upgrading your garage door opener to a Chamberlain automatic garage door opener will make it convenient to access your garage with no fuss. Equipped with the highest level of security available on the market, you can be confident that your garage is secure.
You can also make your garage smarter with Chamberlain’s myQ technology. With 24/7 monitoring of your garage door opener, the myQ App sends notifications whenever the garage door is opened or closed, which is a convenient and beneficial addition to your garage.
