Garage lighting is important for safety reasons and aesthetic reasons. A well-lit garage is easier to keep clean and maintain too. For all these reasons and more, it's important to ensure that your garage is properly lit. Are you looking for a home improvement project that will make your garage a more functional place to park your car? Improve your garage lighting. There are many ways this can be done - here's what we suggest.
Install a Modern Aluminum Garage Door
Modern aluminum garage doors sold by Overhead Door Company have a lightweight aluminum frame and multiple glass windows. They also have a sleek look that appeals to homeowners living in contemporary-style homes.
These garage doors let in a lot of natural light because they're more glass than metal. Installing a modern aluminum garage door is one way to ensure that your garage will be well-lit on the inside - even when the garage door is shut. At Overhead Door Company of Wilmington, we recommend installing frosted glass windows to let in the light but maintain your privacy.
Keep Windows Clean
A very simple way that you can let more light into your garage is by keeping the windows clean. Dirt on the windows can block daylight, dimming the garage interior. Clean your windows every quarter to eliminate dirt.
Unblock Windows on Both Sides
Garages tend to be full of stuff on the inside - and sometimes windows get blocked by boxes and clutter. On the outside of the garage, overgrown shrubs can block windows and daylight. Remove any obstacles on either side of the windows to ensure that daylight can enter the garage at all times of the day.
Install Automatic Garage Door Opener
Automatic garage door openers come with lights that illuminate the interior of your garage, so if your garage lacks an automatic garage door opener, now is the time to get one. Installing an opener can also improve your home's value and modernize your home. Work with a capable garage door contractor to install an automatic garage door opener in your home.
Install Inexpensive Workshop Lights
Workshop lights are easy to hang from the ceiling, and some models also plug into outlets, so you don't need to hardwire them into your garage. If you'd like a more permanent lighting solution, hire an electrician to install attractive and easy to use overhead lights.
