Did you know your home has a front door that is more than twice the size of your current one?
Fact is, with the amount of time homeowners spend outdoors in the spring and summer time, your garage door has naturally become the new front door to your home. According to a Gallup study, the majority of Americans prefer to especially spend their summer evenings outdoors, sitting on their patio, deck or porch and barbecuing.
Your home's garage is the gateway from your inside living space to your outside living space. Here are our favorite and most common ways to use the garage as your favorite front door:
Whether you're hosting a barbecue with your family and friends, or are grilling out on the weeknights with your family at home, the smells of delicious food on the grille pair nicely with the smells of any season. Opening up your garage door to your friends as the entrance to your home truly is the way to say, “Welcome to our summer home. Grab a drink, have fun and let’s eat!”
DOING YARD WORK AND UPDATING LANDSCAPING!
Yes, there is something about doing yard work and updating the landscaping around your home that takes away the weight and labor behind the word, “work.” You open up your garage, use the amazing tools inside your garage, from the lawn mower to garden gloves to the garden spade, and beyond! You use these tools carefully organized in your garage waiting for you to utilize to freshen up your lawn, your landscape and garden, too.And, while the work can be time consuming and at times not idealic under the hot sun, when the days are done, you know you can step back and admire the completed work and know it was all worth it.
HOSTING A GARAGE SALE!
Hosting a garage sale may be the most easiest and obvious way you can turn your garage door into your front door. Your garage door literally welcomes your community at large into your home to browse through your soon-to-be-gone furniture, home décor, gadgets, tools, housewares, clothing and much more.
Then comes the SUMMER! There’s nothing like the Fourth of July. What we all love most is every year is when the entire neighborhood opens up their garages, pulls out all the portable chairs and sits on the the driveway awaiting for the night’s showcase of the town’s firework show.
