Did you know NZ is in the top 5 countries for vehicles per capita? It is safe to say that in this day and age nearly everyone owns a car (or two) and most people have a home with a garage.
If you hadn’t heard of garage carpet until now, it’s a carpet that has been designed using synthetic fibres to ensure it is highly durable, resistant to wear and tear and repels moisture. The numerous benefits of garage carpet not only add value to your home but they create a larger living space as well. The garage can become an extension of your home instead of being a room of the house you usually close the door on.
KIDS, OUT OF SIGHT OUT OF MIND…BUT SAFE AND WARM
As much as we all love our kids, they can get pretty full on when the weather is wet outside and they are stuck indoors. Why not use the garage as a safe place for them to play, where they can spill things if they must and we don’t need to worry about the clean up after. With garage carpet, the garage looks and feels like a room of the house so the kids will be happy to hang out there. You don’t need to worry about kids with allergies or asthma because the carpet stops all the usual dust that accumulates in the garage and can be vacuumed just the same as household carpet.
YOUR FUR BABIES
People with pets love garage carpet as any accidents can be easily wiped up as opposed to accidents on household carpet which require thorough cleaning and drying to eliminate the stain/odour.
LETS BE HONEST, NO ONE LIKES DOING THE WASHING
Many NZ homes have laundries in their garage and who wants to have to put their shoes on every time they go and put a load of washing on. Nothing better than being able to go to the garage in your socks into a clean, dry and warm laundry area. It almost makes doing the washing sounds enjoyable!
SLIPPIN’ AND SLIDIN’
We all have elderly parents or grandparents that have a high risk of slips and falls and we all have slipped ourselves on a wet garage floor when getting out of the car. Especially those damn painted ones. Slipping and sliding all over the show. Using garage carpet instead, the garage becomes a dry area and eliminates the risk of slips and falls in the home.
The benefits of garage carpet are immense and there are many more where these came from. Man caves is a whole new blog on its own. We would love you to share your stories of your garage either at its current state or what you may have already transformed it into. It might inspire us all!
