If you’re tired out vehicle is lowering the character of your home, why not pretend it’s actually a swish, supersonic jet? Thanks to a German firm, you can now “pimp your garage” with one of their life-like 3D door designs. From a distance, the illusions, printed on tarpaulin, might even fool the neighbors into thinking you’ve traded in your motor for a FI racer, a yacht – or even an elephant.
In fact, these utterly realistic images are printed on plastic sheets which are stuck on garage doors – the latest craze for homeowners. The weather and fire-resistant prints are designed to disguise that boring garage door. Held in place by industrial strength Velcro, they are easy to change and virtually indestructible.
The fashion started in Germany and is now being taken up all over Europe. It’s certainly quite a lot cheaper than a real sports car or a jet fighter. And for the more imaginative customer, creator Thomas Sassenbach (www.styleyourgarage.com) will customize any image on request.
Now, has anyone seen the pet crocodile today?
