Planning A Custom Garage Design

There are many things to consider before building your custom garage. This article is going to take a look at some options that you can use to plan your custom garage design. The basics may not be completely obvious to you, so read on and then you should be ready to go.

Options For Custom Garage Design

The easiest way to start your custom garage design is with the floor. A custom garage floor will add a real uniqueness to your garage and is the best starting point. First thing to do is pick the colors that you want to use. Some ideas for what to use include your family crest, college colors or even your favorite sports or race team?s colors. You then need to plan the size of your custom garage design. I would plan to have enough room to fit three cars comfortably. This way you can have room for all your vehicles and ample space to plan your garage.

After you have lain out a basic floor plan you can draw in the garage door. This part of the custom garage design is very important as most doors will come in fairly standard sizes. Check with local retailers to make sure that a door will fit into your custom garage design. In addition to the physical width and height of the door, you are going to also want to start thinking about the material and how thick the door is. If you plan on working in you garage in the winter and want to be warm, you are going to need something with some insulation. In addition to keeping the garage warm in the winter and cold in the summer, a thicker more insulated door will block unwanted sounds better as well.

Now that you have the structure of your customer garage design laid out, you need to start planning on what you are going to put inside. Cabinets, work benches, and wall hangs all need to fit inside the garage and still allow room for the vehicles. At this point you may end up needing to go back to previous steps and adjust your custom garage design to meet the requirements of these components.

That is about it. Once you have designed in all of those different components you should be good to go. Now you just need to get started buying and building all the different parts from your custom garage design.
