Use as much vertical and ceiling space as possible. This rule is particularly important if you're planning to actually park your car here. Make sure that you'll have room for your car without running into or onto anything.
For Houzz user Janet Henry in Illinois, getting everything up and off of the floor was a priority, so getting rid of as much junk as possible was a must. "The biggest challenge was just getting started," she says. After a yard sale, it took her three days to paint the walls, scour the floor, and paint the cabinetry to get the garage spic and span. "I make it a point to sweep it out and wipe things up every week. I want it to stay nice for a long time," she says.
