Even the most powerful men need an escape every so often. The garage is a man’s domain, a place for him to get away from the rest of the world. It is also a place for him to keep his personal treasures, work on projects, and consider new ideas.

Of course, some escapes are better than others. Cool garages are often better than dank, cluttered workspaces, because they can help a man relax and be inspired. Garages are more than just storage spaces: They are extensions of a man’s style, and of his personality.

Here are seven cool garage ideas that just might inspire you to transform your own space.

Cool Garage 1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What We Like:
This space is clean, organized, and well-lit. Some thought was obviously put into the style and layout, which allows men to think about their project and not about where to find a missing wrench.

What You Can Do:
Put junk in its place. Try to make your own cool garages as uncluttered and well-lit as possible.

Cool Garage 2

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What We Like:
The four-post auto lift allows more space to be used, and there appear to be usable apartments in the back. Awesome.

What You Can Do:
If you are able, adding an auto lift to your garage space can be a huge advantage. Not only can you store vehicles, but you can also work on your cars in a more comfortable way.

Cool Garage 3

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What We Like:
This cool garage idea is a brilliant combination of vehicle space and office space. This allows a variety of projects –not just cars — to be worked on in the garage.

What You Can Do:
Consider setting aside part of your garage as a general work area or rugged office. A simple metal desk and office chair can do the trick, and helps turn the area into a truly versatile workspace.

Cool Garage 4

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What We Like:
Again the awesomeness of an auto lift is shown: Store two cars in place of one. (Just remember to drive the Corvette out before you lower the lift.) This garage is also clean, clean, clean. A lack of clutter can make a big difference.

What You Can Do:
We’re repeating ourselves, but look into the feasibility of an auto lift if you have the option. They’re not always as expensive as you’d imagine. And clean your garage. The ladies that come over to check out your, er, ride will appreciate it.

Cool Garage 5

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What We Like:
Cool garages don’t have to be about just cars. This is a great example of a garage combined with a mancave. This space looks more expensive than it really is: Look closely, and it appears to be a standard-sized home garage.

What You Can Do:
Why not put a manly couch and a TV in one corner? Add some accessories and lighting, and you have an instant garage mancave. Plug in a mini-fridge for cold brews, and you have the perfect home getaway.

Cool Garage 6

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What We Like:
This is another example of how a “normal” home garage can be made awesome with a few basic additions. Tool organizers can double as a workbench, or even a bar.

What You Can Do:
Organize stuff. Tool cabinets and equipment containers don’t need to be fancy, they just need to be functional. If you have a tabletop area, you can add a few bar stools to add a cool new element without much effort.

Cool Garage 7

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What We Like:
Sometimes, simple is better. There really isn’t much to this garage, but it looks amazing. Tools are put out of sight when not in use, and tasteful lighting along with a television give the garage a cool lounge vibe.

What You Can Do:
Try a few lighting changes to give the garage a new look. LED lighting is inexpensive, and can be very useful when you’re hunched over a workbench working on your next project.
