Garages are often forgotten when decorating a home. They’re usually the most boring part of the house, only cars spend time in them. But it doesn’t have to be that way! Garages can be great spaces for the whole family. They can add curb appeal to your home, are a great place for a laundry room or mud room, and can even be converted into a hangout spot. I’ve posted some of the best garage makeover projects to get your started sprucing up your garage!
One of the best ways to add curb appeal to your garage area is with a pergola. A pergola will add interest to a flat wall, and it’s a great place to grow some beautiful vines and flowers. Image via Pinterest

If you’ve got multiple garage doors and it just feels like a little much, you can break up the space with large potted plants. I love how beautiful the greenery looks against the blue of the house and garage. Image via Pinterest.
If you’ve got garage doors that are especially long, windows can help break up the space and make the house feel more inviting. This home from Better Homes & Gardens is a great example. You could either install real windows or paint faux ones.
