Mix Storing with Leisure
Make the garage a friendly and welcoming lot. If space allows you to arrange a relaxation area, consider these possibilities: a pool table, a home cinema system, a Darts board, a bar and even a piano might satisfy your hobbies.

All hidden behind metallic doors. This Rock inspired garage feels fresh and contempo.

But, they are not common containers to throw things into. They complement the overall design and become catchy accessories when you know how to play with them.

Thus, every time you want to fix something or craft little things, you have a place to practice your creativity. Do not forget to install a modular lamp nearby and some useful lighting spots here and there.
