There are lots of things you can do to your garage floors to make them look cool but by far the most popular garage flooring ideas are laying down tiles that create a pattern.

It is best to call first before you order so that you can ask questions and understand exactly how it is done. The more questions you ask and research you do before you order, the better your chances of ordering the right thing.

Every man needs a man cave, or so they say. It is good for the guy of the house to have at least one room or space he can call his own as most of the rest of the house will probably revolve around things the woman wants.

One of the best garage ideas is to make your garage (or a section of it) into that man cave that you want and deserve. Of course, the bigger your garage is the better suited it will be for this very important purpose.

One of the best reasons your garage is the perfect place is that it is separate from the rest of the house. That means you can make noise and do pretty much whatever you want there and your wife or girlfriend will probably not care. Women are notorious for not being interested in the garage and that is why guys can get away with most anything in that one part of the house.

Your garage man cave can be all sorts of thing including a garage workshop, a garage game room, a garage workout room / gym, a garage office, or a garage sports room. You can set it up with big screen TV's to play video games on or you can put in a loud stereo and crank the music. The thing is, in your garage man cave you can do whatever you choose to just as long is it doesn't get in the way of her car!
Heating in the winter is going to be your biggest obstacle. If you are going to want to spend any time in there in the winter months you are going to have to figure out a way to heat your garage man cave. Or you can really accept that it is a cave an go without heat. Admittedly this garage idea will work better in a place like Arizona or Hawaii where cold temperatures are not an issue.


Pre-built garages can also be referred to as portable garages and pre-fabricated garages. Whatever you choose to call them, they are a separate building from your house and people use them for many things other than just parking their cars in them.

If you are trying to figure out different garage ideas and whether a pre built garage is for you, it is wise to first figure out where you want it and do some research. Many cities will require you to get a permit to build anything additional to your house or on your property. You don't want to find out, after it is built, that you needed a permit because that would inevitably involve fines as well.

You should also consider the lay of the land as you don't want to build anything on a slope. If the only area available is not level, you will have to hire someone to level the land so that the structure can be sturdy once it is up. Your local climate may also influence the type of garage you want to get because some are better in wind and snow than others.

Depending on what your needs are for the prebuilt garage, you will need to choose between the different types available. For instance, if you are going to use your new prebuilt garage to store farm equipment or other such things that need to be wheeled in and out, you might decide on a different structure than if you only want it for addition storage. No matter what type of prebuilt garage you ultimately choose, it will not be as sturdy as a real building that has been built like your house.

In order to get the warranty or guarantee, you might be required to have a professional install it. This would be advisable for anyone that is not used to a prject of this size. You might even decide to get concrete for the floor of your pre built garage and that is an added cost and complication. Professionals are always a good choice if you have any doubts about having it installed correctly.
