What a difference a custom garage can make! Our work recently took us to the Lincoln Park area, where a client had requested we take a look at her garage. The design of it simply didn’t lend well to neatly organizing her things. Her garage had previously been cluttered: ladders, chairs, and other accessories had accumulated over time and were taking up all of her space! In addition, the walls were old and bare; definitely not being utilized to their maximum effect! We set up a free consultation with this client to come up with some ideas to renovate her garage. One of our immediate suggestions? Slatwall.
Every great custom garage has slatwall.
If you’ve ever visited a well organized retail store, one of the first things your eyes gaze upon is likely the featured products displayed prominently on the walls. What you may not know is that just about everything is held together by slatwall, which can accommodate shelves, hooks, hanging bars, waterfall arms, pucks and other accessories! Slatwall is a building material consisting of panels made with horizontal grooves.
Slatwall isn’t just for retail stores, though. They’re a key component in your home when it comes to effective garage storage solutions. For our client in Lincoln Park, we transformed her garage by applying slatwall to the entirety of it.
Here’s what it looked like before:
And after we finished:
The walls were once barren space that couldn’t hold anything. Now, they’ve been transformed into ample storage space for lawn equipment, outdoor chairs, racks for sporting goods, and more! To top off this renovation, we added a taupe finish to the slatwalls, giving it a rich brown color. We also trimmed out the windows of the garage with a custom edge treatment, seamlessly blending the windows with the slatwall. You can see below:
