HGTV Dream Home 2009: Garage Interior Pictures
Cleverly concealed in a carriage house-style structure, the detached garage from HGTV Dream Home 2009 boasts ample parking and storage space.
The garage is designed to house two vehicles with plenty of storage room to spare.
A Guy's Favorite Spot
Locker-style storage with grey hammertone doors and drawer fronts serves both the home mechanic and handyman, who could easily convert the garage space into a woodshop. Bottom storage units and shelves can house everything from lawn equipment to power tools.
Organized and Out of Sight
Cabinets and storage shelves keep paint, auto supplies, tools and hardware out of sight. Heavy duty hooks are provided to rack bikes or large lawn equipment, and mini metal bins serve as catchalls for small tools and other odds and ends. "Garage storage is equal-opportunity storage space because it isn't connected to decorated living spaces in the house," explains house planner Jack Thomasson. "It can serve as overflow storage for household items, as well as storage for hobby supplies and sports equipment. And having it organized behind cabinet doors keeps it all out of sight."
The Softer Side
Pulling the SUV out of the garage? Watch out for the ornamental strawberries, planted down the center well of the driveway. "To put turf down the driveway was so expected," adds Jack. "The strawberry plants add an interesting dimension."
