A garage is one of the most important rooms to have if you own a home. The reason being that it serves multiple purposes, ranging from a workspace to a lounging and recreational area; if you have one, there are a few things you don’t want to leave out. Regardless of your hobbies or style, these items are a necessity for every man. The key to making a garage stellar and worthy of praise is making it work for all your needs. Thus, the items on our list are not just shop-related. While the latter are definite must-haves, they aren’t the only ones you should consider. Take a moment to assess your garage and see what’s missing. Here is a helpful list to get you started and on the path to crafting the ultimate work/play space!
5 Garage Items No Man Should Go Without
Work Bench; this is a no-brainer, but many men still don’t have a dedicated area to work. You can’t expect to get anything done (at least the right way) unless you have a specific space to do so. You can buy or build the bench, but just make sure there is plenty of room for tools, materials and anything else you will need. A great way to increase storage space and to keep your gear organized is to install a wall-mounted rack. This will help free-up the top of the bench and allow you to quickly find what you need when you need it.
Fridge; when working or just hanging out, having access to cold beverages (choose your poison) and food is a must. You don’t want to have to go inside the house, especially if you are covered in grease and grime. Make sure you get a full-size version too, because mini-fridges just won’t cut it.
Signs; no one ever said garages have to be simple and boring. A great way to decorate yours and personalize it is to hang signs. These can vary from neon lighted models (a traditional accessory) to beer signs. Get creative and have fun.
Television; when you need to entertain, there is nothing better than being able to watch the game on a flat-panel in the garage. We told you the fridge would come in handy, didn’t we!? To save space on the ground and to keep your electronics safe, be sure to mount the TV. As well, installing surround sound is a small investment worth making.
Car jack; how can you expect to change a tire or work on your vehicles without a jack? To avoid paying a shop to perform a simple job like this, make sure you get a hydraulic model that is capable of supporting up to 3 tons (for all you truck and SUV folks out there). We can’t stress enough how essential this tool is. For good measure, don’t forget to stock your garage with some flashlights also.
