Stuck at Home Due To The Coronavirus Pandemic? 7 Garage Projects To Stay Busy

Published on February 18, 2020

If you are tired of binge-watching TV and looking for something to do to keep busy during the coronavirus pandemic, now is a great time to tackle some different types of garage projects. The right improvements to your garage could add value to your home and give you additional space to escape from the kids too!

Garage Project #1: Reorganize and Declutter

Before you can do any major projects, the first thing you need to do is reorganize and declutter the garage. Go through totes that have been piling up over the years. Get a tool cabinet to organize tools or use wall space and hang them up so they are easy to find.

Garage Project #2: Upgrade to an Insulated Garage Door

If you want to enjoy using your garage year-round, you need to make sure you have an insulated garage door to keep out the cold during the winter and the heat during the summer. There are several different designs of insulated garage doors that also add value and curb appeal.

Garage Project #3: Paint the Garage Floor

There are several different types of products like epoxy resins that are perfect for painting the garage floor and giving it a much-improved look over concrete. Some products will even seal cracks and cover up stains.

Garage Project #4: Insulate the Walls

If your walls aren’t insulated or lack sufficient insulation, add more. There is loose-fill insulation you can blow into the walls without having to tear out drywall. If your garage isn’t finished, then better yet, as you can use fiberglass roll insulation.

Another option is to order sound-proofing foam and just apply it to the walls in the garage. This option is great if you or your kids play musical instruments and you somewhere to practice that won’t disturb others.

Garage Project #5: Add Some Shelving

Don’t overlook all that empty wall space in your garage. Hang up some shelves with the right support brackets to increase storage space. You could also get bike hangers to hang up bikes and get them off the floor to free up floor space.

Garage Project #6: Create an Indoor Playroom for Your Kids

If you need a break from your kids, transform part of the garage space into a playroom where they can go and play once schoolwork is completed for the day. Not only are they safe in the garage but you also get a much needed mental-health break.

Garage Project #7: Create an Arts and Crafts Area

If you like putting models together, doing jigsaws, sewing, painting, or other arts and crafts, you can create your own arts and crafts studio in part of the garage space. Spending time on arts and crafts you enjoy is a great way to reduce stress and anxiety from concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic.
