Garages don’t necessarily need to be decorated but when they are they give a little nicer welcome. It helps to set the tone for your home before even entering. These garage decorating ideas offer some inspiration for extending your home’s decor.
How To Decorate Garage Walls
Display Antique Tools
Our walls are pretty much a big display of our vintage tools or outdoor items. We had boxes full, that my husband had received from his grandpa, that were just taking up space. Since I am all about using, displaying or getting rid of, we decided to decorate the garage walls with whatever we could.
The decorative tools hang in the area that is too high for storage anyway and we have a bar that hangs below for clipping regular tools to.
Decorate With Galvanized Steel And Vintage Signs
Putting up sheets of galvanized steel is a fantastic idea, especially if your walls aren’t finished with anything yet. Even if they are, the steel adds a sleek clean look to one or more walls. The other advantage is that if you like to collect vintage metal signs, they can be hung with magnets for easy switching around.
Put Plants In The Garage For A Fresh Look
This garage just looks welcoming with the brightly patterned rug to the back entry and the well organized space. A couple of plants give it a fresh and unique feel that also makes it truly seem like just an extension of the home.
Color And Themes For Garage Decorating Ideas
Adding paint color to a wall can create a whole different mood or feeling to your garage. Decorate in a color you like and then accessorize with things from your favorite hobby or activity. Use a shelf with pegs to display your decorative items while providing convenient hanging space at the same time.
Make It Rustic
One of my favorite garage decorating ideas is to make it rustic. Here is a little detached garage that I fell in love with and of course had to share. The garage is decorated rustic and is used for parties or meetings. However, a regular garage can be decorated rustic as well.
Decorate A Garage With License Plates
This garage was basically cleaned up with lots of storage shelves and then was given a decorative touch be adding the license plates to the wood ceiling.
