Design tips for decorating a red style garage

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

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

A red garage is sure to make a bold statement. The color red is a vibrant and powerful hue that can evoke a range of emotions and sensations. Red is one of the primary colors, along with yellow and blue, and it holds a special place on the color wheel. In interior design, incorporating red can create a sense of energy and passion in a space. Red is often associated with warmth (fire), strength, power, love, and excitement.

It’s important to use red strategically or in moderation in your design, as it can be overwhelming if used excessively. Red is most often used as the main color in kitchens, dining rooms, living rooms, and playrooms. Red can be used as a dominant color in your garage to create a dramatic and stimulating atmosphere or as an accent color to add a pop of intensity. A pop of red doesn't just speak; it sings. You may have heard of the trending “unexpected red theory” that has taken over our social feeds. The theory is simple: Add something red to any room—even when it doesn’t match—and it will automatically look better. Fun fact: the term was coined by designer and Spoak member Taylor Migliazzo!

When it comes to finding a cohesive color palette that works well with red, there are a few options to consider. One classic choice is to pair red with its complementary color on the color wheel, which is green. This creates a vibrant and dynamic contrast. Another option is to go for a more harmonious look by combining red with analogous colors, such as shades of orange and purple. These colors are adjacent to red on the color wheel and create a visually pleasing and cohesive palette. Additionally, neutral colors like white, black, and gray can also complement red nicely, allowing it to stand out as the focal point. Your choice of complementary or harmonious colors will depend on the desired mood and style of your space.
