If you are looking for ways to add additional space and functionality to your home, a garage remodel can be a great option. While a garage is traditionally used for storing vehicles and other items, it can also be transformed into a versatile and useful space that meets the needs of your home or business.
In this blog, we’ll explore four creative ways to add space with a garage remodel. From converting the space into a home office or workshop to installing storage solutions or creating a home gym, there are many different options to consider.
Whether you have a large or small garage, these ideas can help you make the most of your space and increase the value of your home. So read on to learn more and get inspired to transform your garage into a functional and stylish space.s
1. Artist Studio
If you are a DIY enthusiast or simply enjoy working with your hands, converting part of your garage into a workshop can be a great way to add space and increase the functionality of your home. Depending on your needs and preferences, you could install a workbench, power tools, and other equipment to create a dedicated space for projects and hobbies.
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
If you are short on space or don’t have room for a dedicated gym in your home, a garage can be a great place to set up exercise equipment. Depending on your interests and needs, you could install a treadmill, stationary bike, weights, or other equipment to create a convenient and private place to work out.
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
With more and more people working from home, a home office can be a valuable addition to any home. If you have a spare room or a large enough garage, you could convert it into a dedicated office space. This could be especially useful if you need a quiet, distraction-free space to work or if you don’t have room for an office in the rest of your home.
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.
