You may see photos of custom garages and wonder if it’s worth it to spend money on improving a relatively unseen area of your home. Much of the time, home improvement dollars are spent on places that you spend more time: the bathrooms, the kitchen, the bedrooms, a back deck, the front porch. What are the benefits of investing a professionally designed and installed custom garage?
Increased Space: When you spend the money on a garage organization system, it actually can impact the rest of your living space as well. Think about how much more space you could gain in your house if you were to move some of your seldom-used belongings to the garage.
Home Value: When would-be buyers first walk into a home for sale, one of the first things they check is the home’s storage space. Having a custom garage can cause those offers to come in a bit higher than they would otherwise, and they also can encourage buyers to make a bid; they won’t want to miss out on having a custom garage of their own!
Safety: When you have items on the floor of the garage or stacked precariously, they can get damaged. A bump from a running child or from opening the car door can bring piled items crashing down. If inclement weather causes some water buildup on the floor of your garage or if the water heater springs a leak, those items on your floor can get damaged from the moisture. Having your belongings safely stowed in drawers, cabinets and overhead storage bins eliminates those concerns.

Choosing a Cabinet Option
Your choice of garage cabinet can make or break the functionality and aesthetics of your garage. The nature of the items you intend to store in your garage cabinet also plays a significant role in dictating its structure and security system.
What notable large items do you have? If you intend to store large items, your garage cabinets should be sized to accommodate them.
Do you have lots of sports gear? In this case, you may consider slat walls with a variety of shelves, hooks, and baskets.
Do you have many decorations? Since they are not everyday items, these can go in overhead storage.
Do you have things in storage bins that you want to leave in bins? Then your cabinets can be designed to fit those specific bins.
Do you still want cars in the garage? How many? Then your space and cabinet system should be designed to allow the space to park your vehicles.

“We love the quality of our Webfoot floors and cabinets in our garage. Working with Brook to deign the right layout for our cabinets was easy. She was professional and listened to the wants and needs of our family. The cabinet installation went smoothly and the quality is even better than we expected!”
“Webfoot revamped our entire garage, coating the floor, building and installing cabinets and slat wall. Their designer (Brook) worked with us over several revisions to make sure we were getting what we wanted and had great input in the process. Both the floor and cabinet crews were friendly and professional, checking in often to make sure all was to our satisfaction. They showed up on time & even worked through single-digit temperatures. There was one cabinet that didn’t quite work as-is, so they remade it and made it work. We’re quite happy with the results”

Then decided to have them build and install new cabinets in the garage as well as a paint the garage. The results are fantastic. Everyone at Webfoot has been great to work with.
