Ladies (and Gents) — Take Your Garage Back!

The humble garage. When it was first conceived, it seemed like a fine idea: an enclosed space in which to park the family cars and protect them from heat and cold, rain and the occasional passing seagull. But somewhere along the way, the idea of a traditional attached garage has been run off the road.
Rather than hosting cars, garages have been outfitted with pool or ping pong tables or arcade games and transformed into an entertainment space. Or they have been made into home gyms, complete with a set of bar bells and maybe a treadmill that if only the person who bought them would use the darn things a bit more often, there would be no reason to go to the next higher pant size.

Guys have also gotten carried away and decided that it would be even better if they could use their garage as a makeshift shop for do-it-yourself auto service or modifications — filling the space with tools, test instruments and undrivable vehicles with their parts scattered all over for months at a time.

And in what little room may be left, your guy has likely squeezed in camping gear, sports equipment or what have you. In other words, just about anything that you won’t let him bring into the house, he stashes in the space where you’d like to simply park your car.

Ladies Love Garages Too

But lest you laugh a little too loudly, ladies, we see you looking longingly at your garage space as well.

Unless you’re a car gal — and there are a growing number of those today — your interest in the space may have nothing to do with motor vehicles. But we know that you’re filling it with boxes of Christmas ornaments, clothes and shoes you’ve removed from your closet but can’t part with, furniture, extra kitchen items, and who knows what else? Where does all this stuff come from?

In the meantime, your family’s cars are looking lonely and exposed parked in your driveway or at the curb.
