When you think of a carport, the first thing that surfaces is going to be a means for storing and protecting a car. Though that is the most common way that people choose to use their carport, it’s certainly not the only way. In our last blog post, we touched on a few of the creative and fun ways that you can do to make the most of your carport. Today, we touch on how you can customize your carport so that it truly can be the space you need it to be.

Workshop

Having some covered space to work on projects and hammer away is always nice, and your carport is the perfect place to make it happen. If you are considering using your carport as a workshop now and again, a workbench and some storage will need to be added. The good news is these are pretty easy to incorporate! That being said, if this is something that you plan on using your carport for, consider purchasing a carport with full walls so that you can install these various features.

Storage Space

If your carport is going to be an additional storage space for you to keep things, then one thing you’re going to need is to make sure that you’re able to keep things organized and make the most of the available space. While adding a few cabinets is more than enough for when you are using your carport as a workshop, you may need more than a few if its primary use will be additional storage. Depending on what you plan on storing in your carport, cabinets and shelving can be added to your carport so that you can store everything that you need. Again, this is going to be ideal for carports that are enclosed.

Lighting

One of the most common customizations that people make to their carports will be lighting. This shouldn’t be too surprising given that this is a space that will be used frequently. Regardless of if you are using this space to park your car or you’re planning on using it for something else, having the light that you need is a must. Even just a single lighting fixture added to the carport can make it all the easier to park your car at night or find that specific item that you’ve got tucked away in a box somewhere. This customization is definitely one that you’re going to continue to use for years to come.

Ventilation

The last customization that we are going to touch on today is ventilation. This is another feature that is fantastic to add if you plan on using your carport frequently. Whether the carport that you invest in has full walls or they are only partial walls, having some additional ventilation can make all the difference. The best way to add this feature to your carport is through a fan. If you are going to be adding a lighting fixture to your carport, consider adding a fixture that includes a fan so that you can get the best of both worlds. Not only will this be a great way to maintain airflow, but it will also help keep you cool during those hot summer days.
