HGTV Dream Home 2012: Garage Interior Pictures

A focus on storage and home systems make the garage interior one of the home's most important spaces.

  • Stained cement floors provide a solid foundation for the garage interior, a clean and uncluttered space that leads into the home's tile-clad mudroom.

  • Two trumpet chandeliers, when viewed from the exterior, create the illusion of livable space.

  • Recessed windows offer visual interest and interesting architectural detail in a room otherwise stripped of adornment.

  • Locker-style cabinetry provides storage space for tools, lawn equipment and sports gear. Doors open to reveal a mechanical closet.

  • Three tankless water heaters, installed in the mechanical closet, power the home and provide up to 97 percent thermal efficiency.

  • A fully modulating direct-vent wall furnace provides warmth and energy efficiency in the garage space.

  • The winner of HGTV Dream Home 2012 will receive a midsize crossover SUV that boasts a stylish interior and the best fuel economy in its class.
