Tips to Build Your Home Workshop

How to Create a Great Home Workshop (1)

Your Home Workshop Must-Have List

Building a home workshop is the goal of many a homeowner. Whether to build your own furniture, create custom art, or take on side electrical projects, a good workshop is a perfect place to start your DIY journey. The most common place to build your workshop is in your garage. Transforming an existing building is much easier to manage than (literally) building your space from the ground up. Because of this, we’re offering up our top 3 tips for creating the perfect workspace for any project.

Pick the Perfect Workbench

Picking the right workbench is extremely important.

You have a few options when picking the right workbench. We, personally, highly recommend you search the best portable workbenches. You’ll want to consider a few main things. First, you want to make sure the base and legs are sturdy so the table won’t tip. Also, ensure the top is a durable material that won’t be easily destroyed under the duress of your projects. Finally, make sure your workbench is a strong material that can withstand your projects, as well.

Pick the Right Storage System

Your home workshop should have great storage.

One of the biggest investments you’ll make in your home workshop is in the tools. As such, protecting this investment is key. Buying the right storage system is a must. From screwdrivers to hammers, paints and beyond, you want to make sure that your tools are protected. We often recommend you look into a rolling storage system because you’ll be able to move it, should you choose to redesign your space going forward. Consider also installing drawer mats to make certain your tools (whatever they may be) are safe.

Light it Up

Home workshop should be well lighted.

At the end of the day, we always say that you want to shine the right light on the subject. First, make sure that your workspace has adequate electrical outlets. You don’t want to be fighting with extension cords each time you start a new project. Once that’s been sorted, you’ll want to invest in good lighting. We tend to think that good old-fashioned fluorescent lights are the best for your space. They’re cost-effective, won’t cast shadows, and they’ll offer you good lighting all day – or night – long.
