Do you have a hobby or crafting area in your garage? Do you work on your vehicles in the garage? Do you shudder thinking about the creepy, crawly creatures lurking in the dark corners around your Utah garage doors? You can make drastic improvements by brightening up the area.
There are many methods to adding light to the area. Many people prefer to add high gloss paint to the walls and ceiling of a garage. With a couple of coats of high gloss, eggshell white paint, a garage is brightened greatly. Paint eliminates the need to add more light and to use more energy for lightening the area. But, it can be a large project. Also, the white is capable of showing much more dirt than plain cement walls.
Other methods include hanging fluorescent lighting. This can add a great deal of light to a garage. It is the preferred lighting for many crafters who work in their garages well into the night on projects. These lights can be a bit complicated to install and are dangerous if they are broken. The bulbs contain toxic chemicals that can spill out if they shatter.
Some garages already have natural light sources such as small windows. Many of these windows are covered with bushes or trees. Many people also will conceal these windows to keep pests or potential criminals away. You can remove bushes and install small bars over the window and still benefit from the natural light sources.
Consider the choices available to creating a lighter and brighter garage area. You will be able to select the choice that is right for you and your needs.
