Deciding what to get Dad for Father's Day is something we all start thinking about several months in advance. Instead of presenting him with another indescribably weird tie or gift certificate to Bass Pro, why not multitask by cleaning and transforming his garage into a room he can call all his own?
For the TV/Movie Dad
It is easy to turn part or all of a garage into the ultimate entertainment center for Dad. After cleaning and de-cluttering, cover the floor with carpet or tiling, lay some rugs down, give Dad a new, plush recliner, install a big-screen television equipped with cable hookup and line the walls with shelves to hold his favorite DVDs. Remember to also equip this type of garage with temperature controls so that Dad's favorite room in which to relax is free of humidity and dampness. High-tech electronics are sensitive to extreme climates and may not function properly if kept in clammy conditions.
For the Physical Fitness Fanatic Dad
Save Dad a ton of money by eliminating his need to purchase gym memberships and turning that unused, chaotic garage into a sleek, professional home gym area. Refurbish the old garage floor with interlocking rubber mats specially made for covering garage floors that hold heavy, mostly immoveable items. Place large fans in ceiling corners for cooling and ventilation. Add a few new pieces of gym equipment that Dad doesn't have, a music system and watch how much Dad enjoys his Father's Day gift.
For the Wine/Beer Connoisseur Dad
Imagine the Dad who enjoys his wine and beer walking into his garage that has been completely remodeled to resemble an ale house and/or wine bar? Garage remodeling contractors have access to a variety of stylish wall shelving units that can safely hold and display Dad's collection of wine and beer. Install unique wine refrigerators, racks to hold glasses and a separate refrigerator to hold beers in addition to a small bar, stools and television for entertaining guests.
Library or Home Office for the Businessman Dad
Give Dad the privacy and space he needs to work out of his home by converting that cramped garage into a spacious and productive home office and library. After laying comfortable carpeting, create a professional environment with filing cabinets, bookshelves, his favorite desk and chair and all the electronic equipment he needs--fax machine, copier, paper shredder--to efficiently run his business.
