Let’s face it, the world is fascinated by celebrities and things celebrities have. People considered to have fame are approximately 1 in 10,000 of the English speaking population, making them an exclusive group. And while celebrity homes have always been something the everyday person in awe of, the celebrity garage is quickly catching up. So how is it possible to have some of the insane qualities of celebrity garages on a sane budget? Let’s take a look at 3 aspects of celebrity garages and how that can translate to your garage!
Jay Leno: Garages Aren’t Just for Storing Cars
Jay Leno’s garage proves that a garage is a multi-functional addition to your home. Don’t’ get us wrong, Leno’s garage is basically a museum of classic and rare cars that would make any car collector salivate at the sight. However, there is also a whole other floor that holds even more greatness, including a den tricked out with solid alder cabinets and beautiful hardwood floor.
For the majority of Americans whose garages do not have multiple floors and warehouse-level storage capabilities, there are ways to use this idea from Leno that a garage can be multi-functional. Versatile work benches are a great way to add more function to your garage. A nice corner bench can be used to transition your garage into an office space. A rolling tool bench turns your garage into a workshop in minutes, as you can set up your space on a project-need basis.
Ralph Lauren: Presentation is Key
As an iconic American designer, you would expect everything Ralph Lauren does to be aesthetically pleasing. His garage is no exception. Lauren keeps his 70 classic cars organized by brand and color, and each is showcased on a stainless steel display illuminated by halogen lighting.
Since the everyday person does not have 70 cars, nor the space to accommodate this many vehicles, what we take from Lauren is the idea that presentation is a powerful tool when thinking of ways to improve upon your existing garage. Keeping garage items organized will make your space look larger and well thought out, not to mention be good for your health. In fact, a study has shown that having more time for enjoyable activities has a positive influence on your well-being. Being organized keeps you wasting valuable minutes looking for items.
Cabinets are a handy tool to assist with this, as well as being a design tool. Adding cabinets with an accent color immediately make your garage feel like a custom project, while you have also just enhanced your storage and organization capacity. Showcase your beautiful cabinets with a new light fixture not traditionally anticipated for a garage. This will be a fashionable flair to make your garage a standout.
Being daring in your design can leave lasting impressions.
Guy Fieri: Putting the You in Your Garage
When you think of Guy Fieri, you think of food. Fieri’s garage will also make you think of food. That’s because his custom garage is modeled after a classic diner complete with retro photo murals, industrial restaurant shelving and a dinner table with stools. The entire garage has a design theme based off of this, creating a one of a kind garage.
The takeaway from Fieri’s garage is the power of personalizing. Having elements of your garage reflecting you and things that you love to create a space that is truly your own. Having a WallScape in your garage can be used not just for hanging your everyday garage items, but for adding decorative items as well. You can find pieces of art, trinkets, anything that fits your style to hang on your WallScape or on shelving that can be easily moved around.
Make your garage another extension of you.
You’ll love spending time in your one-of-a-kind space.
