The garage is the sanctuary of the at-home mechanic and can be valuable space to a dedicated DIYer. The importance of having the right tools at the right time cannot be overstated, but what about the garage itself? Sure, the tools are the main protagonist, but there are a handful of bigger-picture items your garage needs.
Seal-Krete Garage Floor Epoxy-Seal
Above all else, laying down an epoxy-seal on the garage floor should take precedence. Not only will it help protect the concrete from wear and tear, but it makes cleaning up oil and other liquid spills exponentially easier.
GarageTrac Diamond, Durable Interlocking Modular Garage Flooring Tile
Interlocking floor tiles go one step further in protecting your garage floor and making cleanups easier. The added diamond pattern adds crucial grip – and classic styling – too.
Husky Industrial 15-Drawer Tool Chest
No garage is complete without a tool chest. A 15-drawer example from Husky will do nicely — it’s duarable, supports up to 120 lbs and has power strips and a bottle opener built in.
Big Ass Fans Garage Light
Lighting is crucial in any work space — it’s important you can see what you’re doing and see it well. 13000 Lumens from a Big Ass Fans Garage Light will absolutely do the job.
Triumph Auto Lift
An auto lift is aimed more at the at-home mechanics, but having one makes working on a car exponentially easier. Imagine a world in which you don’t have to literally slither your way under your car to tighten a bolt at some awkward angle. Sounds like garage heaven.
New Age Garage Storage
Having a tool chest is one thing, but proper storage and — specifically, wall cabinets – is is another necessity. New Age Garage Storage offers different sizes as well as modular units that keep all the extra clutter in your garage neat, organized and out of the way.
Installing a fridge in your garage sounds like a luxury, but when you’re covered in oil, grease and sawdust, the last thing you want to do is track that mess through your house. Besides… beer.
