Home buyers love buying a home that has many upgrades found throughout the home.  Many home owners often forget to upgrade a garage as it's seen as the last thing to do to update the look.  Having a clean and modern garage can add to the value of the home, especially for those buyers who are car enthusiasts or expect everything to be modernized throughout the home.  One easy way to upgrade a garage is to add an epoxy finish to it.  Epoxy floors have a very clean look with a variety of colors that one can choose from.  Once complete, epoxy flooring can add value to any home for a minimal amount of cost.

One of the unique amenity that can be found in the larger homes is the man cave.  The concept grew many years ago for men to have their own dedicated space within the house for themselves.  it originally started out in the basement of the home where the room was often decked out in sports memorabilia, large screen TV and even a billiards table for entertainment.  The sole purpose of them room would be for the man in the house to get away from everyone and enjoy a good sports game or hang out with other male friends.  For the most part, it takes a rather larger house to accommodate such a room as most growing families occupy the large majority of the rooms for kids and work office.  Having an extra room in the house that can be dedicated to such a theme is
