3 Features of The Future of The Garage
Garages have remained much the same since they started housing horseless carriages in the early twentieth century. Even seemingly ‘modern’ advancements, like garage door openers, have been around for a long time.
And if you look at some of the ‘new’ designs for garage doors, you’ll spot many carriage doors styles that even pre-date car garages.
So with garages changing very little over the past century, you might think that they won’t change very much in the next century.
But that thinking could very well be wrong.
In fact, it might be safer to bet that garages will change more in the foreseeable future than they did in the past 100 years. Here are just a few ways your garage will be different in the not-so-distant (happening right now!) future of the garage.
1. They’ll be Equipped to Refuel Your Car
No, you don’t need to get safety certified to build a gasoline pump. But as electric vehicles continue their slow but steady foray into the world of fossil-fuel burning cars, there’s a good chance you might be retrofitting your garage to recharge electric cars.
2. It’ll be Online
The future is now for this one. LiftMaster’s MyQ™ technology has been offered on the many of their garage door openers for at least five years now. You can now even connect an older door with their retrofit package. It means that the status and control of your garage door, garage door opener, garage lights and security cameras in the garage are in the palm of your hand.
3. It Might be Your New Home Expansion
If self-driving automotive technology continues to evolve, there may be no need for personal vehicles. You’ll simply ‘whistle’ and one will find its way to you. That leaves one of the largest, continuous open spaces in your home empty. And ready to become anything you want to make of it. Think of the size of the TV you can get in through the garage door!
