Most garage floors are just plain sad. Think: bland concrete, oil spills, and a whole lot of dust. But an epoxy coating is the first move to taking your garage from glum to glam. Epoxy is incredibly durable, so it will stand the test of time and hold up against water spills, dust, and foot traffic.

2. Replace Your Garage Door

Switching out your garage door is a quick way to totally change the look of your home and boost the curb appeal. Consider the existing style of your home, then choose something stylish to match. Modern homes look great with a frosted glass garage, while a traditional home benefits from a carriage-style garage door design.
