Design tips for decorating a blue style garage

Here’s how to achieve the blue aesthetic room of your dreams.

What’s the best way to design and decorate a blue garage?

As any DIYer with a garage knows, the garage is more than just a place to park your car; it's a versatile space that holds the potential to be organized to accommodate your personal interests.

With the right layout, your garage can become an efficient and enjoyable space that meets all your practical needs while also letting you pursue hobbies or even start a side hustle. Whether you're in the process of a garage remodel or looking to makeover your existing one, these are the key elements to include in your design:

  • Car Parking: The primary function of most garages is to house vehicles. Determine the best positioning for your car that allows ample room for doors to open and for easy access to the house or workspace.
  • Paint or Wallpaper: Select a color or pattern that sets the desired mood for the garage and complements the style you want to achieve. We are partial to covering walls, ceilings, and trim in a uniform paint color to create a cohesive look. Or consider an accent wall to serve as a focal point.
  • Storage Solutions: Garages often serve as a storage hub for various items, from gardening tools and sports equipment to all those seasonal decorations you’re hoarding (we’re not here to judge). Consider incorporating a mix of storage solutions like tool chests, cabinets, pegboards, and wall-mounted racks. This will help keep your tools organized and within reach, while cabinets can hide away less frequently used items or those that need to be kept out of sight (and out of reach from kiddos or furry friends), such as cleaning supplies, automotive fluids, extra paint cans, or other hazardous materials.
  • Workbench: For the DIY enthusiasts, a sturdy workbench is essential. It provides a robust surface for various projects, from woodworking to automotive repairs. Position your workbench in a well-lit area, preferably near a power source, and consider the workflow around the bench to ensure you have enough space for your projects.
  • Decorative Lighting: Combine task, ambient, and accent lighting for a layered lighting scheme. Consider the placement of lighting fixtures to eliminate shadows and evenly light the space. Dimmer switches can adjust the mood.

By considering these key components and employing a thoughtful layout, your garage can transform into a multi-functional space that supports your lifestyle. Whether you're pulling in your car after a long day or embarking on a new DIY project, your garage will be ready to meet your needs​​.

How do you decorate with blue?

If you want to make a bold statement with blue, consider painting the whole garage (ceilings included) in a single shade of blue. No one regrets painting a garage blue.

Decorating with blue can transform any space into a serene sanctuary or a dynamic cozy cocoon, depending on its shade and application. Lighter shades of blue like sky blue or baby blue can create a sense of openness and freshness and a soothing atmosphere, while darker shades like navy blue or royal blue can add depth, elegance, and sophistication.

Blue pairs beautifully with a range of colors. For a classic, crisp look, combine it with white or cream. For warmth, juxtapose blues against earth tones like sandy beiges or soft browns. For a more dynamic and contemporary color palette, consider coral or mustard (orange is the complementary color opposite blue on the color wheel), which provide a striking contrast and elevate the vibrancy of the space.

Don't shy away from mixing different shades of blue within the same space. Layering light and dark blues can create a sophisticated and dynamic aesthetic. This approach works well in spaces where you want to maintain a monochromatic scheme without it feeling flat or uninteresting.

Blue is often associated with the sea and the sky, making it a perfect choice for creating a coastal or beach-inspired room. Pair blue with white or sandy beige tones or incorporate nautical elements like striped patterns, seashells, or rope accents to enhance the coastal aesthetic.
