Design tips for decorating a green style garage

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

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

Green may be one of the most versatile colors in design. It is a common hue in all design styles and room types. Soft greens like sage, olive, or mint can bring an instant sense of calm or serenity to a space, while bright greens like lime or chartreuse bring a sense of whimsy or retro tone. The use of deeper green hues like pine or emerald are hallmarks of more traditional design styles.

Green is often associated with nature, so consider using it as a foundation for a nature-inspired garage color palette. Pair different shades of green with earthy tones like browns, beiges, or muted yellows to create a serene and organic atmosphere.

If you want to make a bold statement with green, consider painting an accent wall in a rich shade of green or using green wallpaper. This can create a focal point in the room and add depth and visual interest. Alternatively, you can opt for a more subtle approach by incorporating green through smaller decor elements like curtains, throw pillows, or artwork.

Lighting can dramatically affect the perception of green. Natural light tends to enhance the freshness and vibrancy of green, making it feel more alive. In artificial lighting, warmer tones can deepen the richness of darker greens, adding coziness to the space.

One of the easiest and most effective ways to bring green into your space is through indoor plants. Not only do they add a pop of color, but they also purify the air (win-win!). Choose a variety of plants with different shades of green and textures to create a lush and vibrant indoor garden.
