So, you don't park your car in your garage? There are many things you can do with that space. In this article, we'll go over some of the most inventive things you can do with your garage if you need the space. We'll also provide suggestions for ways that you can handle the conversion easily and without going through a major garage remodel.
1. Artist Studio
Garages make excellent artist studios. In fact, most garages are already a little messy, which means that your garage can easily be converted into a studio without worry about getting paint or clay on the floor.
Get your garage door in proper working order to ensure the door will open and close. This way, you can open the door for proper ventilation when working with materials like oil paints. Clean the windows and remove obstructions to allow adequate light into the garage. Install workshop lights overhead.
2. Home Gym
Convert your garage into a home gym by cleaning out the space and installing gym equipment. Like the artists' studio, you'll want to ensure the garage door opens and closes to allow proper ventilation into the garage on hot days. Clean away the clutter in your garage, and paste inspirational posters to your garage walls to remind you about the rewards of your hard work!
3. Home Office
Do you work from home? The garage is the perfect place to work, provided that you're able to make it into a comfortable space. To make your garage into a home office, we suggest replacing your old, inefficient garage door with a Thermacore model. Thermacore garage doors are well-insulated to help with temperature control. They also have windows to allow sunlight into your garage.
You can also make your garage a comfortable place to get work done by installing a rug, cleaning out the clutter, and adding some warm lighting options. Place floor lamps and desk lamps around your garage to make it the kind of place you can enjoy working.
4. Dining Room
Maybe your home lacks a formal dining room. If that's the case, your garage can make an excellent substitute dining room - especially during the holidays when you need the extra space to accommodate guests and family members. You don't have to finish your garage to make it an attractive place to eat: simply cover the walls with screens or curtains, and hang cafe lights from the ceiling to add a festive look.
