Bathrooms and kitchens get all the attention when homeowners throughout New Orleans, Slidell, and Mandeville look to take on a new renovation project.

But giving your garage a makeover (both inside and out) could be exactly what you need to fall back in love with your home.

When you open up your garage, what's the first thing to come to your mind? Are you welcomed with clutter, spider webs, and a drab and boring space?

It doesn't have to be that way.

Tips on how to renovate the inside of your garage

Who says your garage has to have no character? Remember, it is a part of your home.

A little color can go a long way

One way to easily spruce up that space is to give it some paint! Your garage floor is the perfect canvas for bright and reflective paint, which will deliver more vibrancy into your garage. Painting your floor is as easy as cleaning away all dust and debris and taking out your paintbrush and roller.

Simple as that.

Of course, if you're going to paint your floor, you might as well paint your walls too.

You don't have to choose the same color as your floor - in fact, we encourage you not to! Variation will add depth and definition. Choose a bright color that'll give your garage some warmth and livability.

Let there be light

All those bright new colors you've added to the walls and floor won't really pop until you do something about that light! Take a look at your current garage lighting – we're sure there's room for improvement.

Finding the right type of light for your garage is part art, part science. Look at the light used inside your garage opener; but go beyond that. Are there any other places in your garage where you can add accent lighting? Having multiple points of light will help fill your space and take away nasty shadow casting.

Once you do install your new lighting, consider purchasing the LiftMaster Remote Light Control, which will allow you to control your lighting from your smartphone or from your garage door opener remote control.

Let there be natural light

There are some pretty remarkable window designs available for your garage. If it can go in your home, chances are it can go in your garage.

Perhaps you want to install insulated windows since you spend a considerable amount of time in your garage? Perhaps you're looking to add a large picture window, or multiple smaller windows?

The point is, if you can think it up, we can make it happen.

Renovating the outside of your garage

If you were to take the dimensions of your entire home, you'll realize that your garage takes up a good portion of real estate. Why not spruce up that exterior to breathe new life in your home?
