How to Turn Your Garage into a Haunted House

Posted on October 10th, 2018

With Halloween right around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about decorating. Our garage builders in Chicago love getting in the Halloween spirit, and we bet you do too! What better way to celebrate than turning your garage into a haunted house. Sounds difficult? We’ve got you covered. Follow these tips to turn your garage into a spooky neighborhood attraction.

Roll Out the Black

First thing’s first: cover up your tool chest and hide your exercise equipment. Don’t let your garage clutter interfere with the ambiance! A simple yet effective way to do this is to hang black tarps or painted black sheets on the walls and over your appliances.

Spooky Ceiling Fixtures

Not the most classic ceiling fixtures, but ceiling fixtures nonetheless. Dangle a few witches, bats, or spiders from the ceiling of your garage to give your visitors the full haunted house experience. Use fishing line to string them across the space, and make sure your fastenings are secure.

Set the Mood

Set the tone of your homemade haunted house with special effects. Use black lights for an eerie glow, a fog machine for ghostly vapor, and creepy music for all-over chills. Don’t neglect the outside of your garage either! Scare your visitors before they ever set foot inside with creepy lawn decorations.
