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.
