Garage Lighting Setups

Let’s start with one of the most crucial fixtures in any garage: lighting.

Light fixtures have come a long way from incandescent bulbs and fluorescent tubes – and thanks to LED technology, there’s an array of light fixtures you can install within your garage. Beyond lighting a space with an even spread of light and offering different color options – going LED can also accentuate the design of your car: its color, materials, and design.

Aesthetic & Vintage Automotive Rugs for Your Garage

You’d never think to take rugs out of the home, but believe it or not, they can really bring a modern garage setup together.

Not only can rugs soften your space, protect your surfaces, and help reduce echo – they can add texture, color, and pattern to your garage. Incorporating these rugs in your garage’s space will create both a personalized and cozy environment, in a space that’s otherwise known to be cold and bleak. You can even match your garage’s rugs to your colorful cars – or treat them as a colorful accent piece amongst any monochrome vehicles!
