If you enjoy stock car racing and are working on plans for a garage makeover, you'll definitely want to incorporate your love of this motorsport in the redesign. Even if you don't own a racecar and require a garage for that purpose, you may still want to redo your garage so that it looks somewhat like a race shop. Find a local custom garage builder who can listen to your ideas and then work to implement them. There are a number of different directions that this type of project can take, and the only limitations are your imagination and your budget. Here are some ideas that you'll likely want to include.
Race Team Colors
One idea to pursue is to have your custom garage finished in the colors that represent your favorite stock car racing team. If you're an avid fan of the sport, you almost certainly have a favorite driver and team. Identify these colors and share them with your remodeling professional. There are all sorts of approaches that you can take here, including painting the walls in the colors of your favorite team, choosing a floor tint that suits the color scheme, and even selecting built-in shelving units in the right colors.
Multimedia for Race Day
Not every garage has to be a dark and damp place for storing things. If you're going to the effort of renovating your garage, it's ideal if you can plan to spend more time in this space. Your remodeling contractor can wire up the garage so that you can watch races in this area with your friends. If the garage is big enough, you can have a projector mounted to the ceiling and a screen that drops down from the ceiling, as well as built-in surround sound. The average garage isn't equipped with wiring for these ideas, but if your contractor is taking the old garage back to the studs, he or she can add the necessary wiring.
In stock car racing, the checkered flag indicates that a driver has won the race, and he or she will soon drive into what is commonly known as "Victory Lane"—a designated celebration area with a black and white checkered floor. You can adopt a similar idea for your racing-inspired garage. One option is to have your contractor put down black and white rubber tiles, or maybe it's even possible to paint the floor of the garage with this pattern.
