For most of us, the garage is the most neglected room in the house. Laundry rooms, mud rooms, basements—these all seem to have gained enough glory in recent years to merit interior design attention, but garages still get the short end of the stick. You may wonder why you should bother with the garage; let’s see if these ideas change your mind.

Create a Home Office Space

Extend Your Style

Fond of tone-on-tone design? Bring that, or your style of choice into the garage. Better yet, if there’s a new style you’ve been wanting to try but aren’t quite ready to commit to, try it out in the garage first.

Solve Storage Needs

Dave Hime, founder/curator of JapaneseTrash.com, has been an interior design addict for as long as he can remember. In 2005, he bought a house-in-progress and missed several opportunities to have an influence on his own home decor–leaving him wanting more. With design heroes such as Blake Dollahite (ruraltheory.com) and Robert & Cortney Novogratz (thenovogratz.com), Dave began seeking out online resources that would exemplify the interior design practices he's most drawn to: using color, texture and simple materials well. Bringing all of this together, along with his specific focus on providing interior design inspiration from a man's point of view, is Dave's mission: masculine design.
