Dream Garage For Hosts: The Benefits Of A Rear Garage Door

How often do you host parties and events in your backyard? Have you ever considered that upgrading to a garage with two doors, one in front and one in back, could make your gatherings run even more smoothly? Here are three reasons you may want to consider adding a rear door to your garage.

1.) Host events

If you have a rear garage door, you can simply open it out onto your backyard to create an airy, covered outdoor space for entertaining. You can make your cookouts happen in rain or shine, moving the buffet line into your garage if the weather takes a turn for the worst. Additionally, your garage can serve as a giant gazebo for guests to take shelter from the hot sun. You can also purchase a garage door screen to keep bugs out without obstructing the view.

2.) Simplify access to your belongings

A rear garage door allows you quick access to everything you need for your party, whether it’s the barbecue, patio furniture or pool floaties. No worries about wading through your belongings or stumbling past parked cars to find what you’re looking for. Simply keep everything you need for entertaining near your rear garage door, so it’s always close at hand.

With a rear garage door, it’s easy to move cumbersome party items like a bouncy castle or wooden arch into your backyard. Simply open your front garage door and carry them straight through the garage.

3.) Control access to your home

During a backyard party, it’s common for guests to use your home’s patio door to grab food and drinks from inside. However, if you’re hosting a party from the rear of your garage, everything your guests need is easily accessible. A rear garage door allows you to contain your party to the outdoors, diverting guest traffic towards the garage and away from other parts of the house.

When purchasing a rear garage door for your home, consider a modern glass door with several windows or inserts. Windows allow in plenty of natural light, a huge plus if you plan on using your garage for hosting. The glass can be tinted or frosted for added privacy.

The team at Creative Door Services™ can help you customize the style and configuration of your garage door windows to suit your style.

How To Get Your Garage Ready For A Party

Turn your garage into a party room in a snap with proper planning and the right accessories. Here are a few tips for getting your garage ready for a birthday party, anniversary, or work get-together.

  • Declutter and organize. Get rid of anything you don’t need and stow away large items like toolboxes and lawn equipment to ensure you have plenty of floor space. Lock up dangerous things like paint, cleaning products, and pesticides in a cabinet or shelf. You can also bring these items indoors or put them in your backyard shed.
  • Do a thorough cleaning. Wipe down the walls, sweep and mop the floor, and clean any windows. Get in all the nooks and crannies to clear out any cobwebs. If your garage has an unpleasant musty smell, use baking soda and vinegar to remove it.

  • Set up tables and folding chairs. Arrange a table for food and drinks and place folding chairs in a way that lets your guests move around freely and have easy access to the backyard.

  • Install a speaker. Music is essential to any good party. Hook up your music player and create a great playlist with timeless jams your guests will love.

  • Put up decorations. Put the finishing touches on your party space by hanging string lights and lanterns. Balloons, streamers, and table centrepieces will enhance the festive atmosphere.

Before you invite your guests, make sure you’ve had your garage door inspected by a technician from Creative Door Services™. A member of our team will visit your property and give your garage door a complete safety check to ensure everything’s operating smoothly. You can rest assured that your guests will be safe as they dance the night away.
