Ideas for Converting Your Garage

When you have a smaller home, it can be hard creating more spaces for certain activities. Extension is one way to expand a home but can be too pricey. One place often overlooked by homeowners in this situation is the garage. To accommodate space needs, below are a couple of ways to convert your garage into a functional space.

Home Office

It’s vital to have a dedicated space for work if you have a side hustle. Setting up an office in the living room might cause unnecessary distractions. If you have an underutilized garage, then transform it into an office space. To make the workstation more attractive, add a finish such as epoxy to the floor. You can even carpet the floor to make the converted garage feel more homely. Put up lights and don’t forget to go for an air-condition for added comfort.

Reading Space

If you’re looking for a nook where you can feed your mind, your garage might be one great place to consider. Most times, clutter eats up most of your garage space. With comfortable seats and proper lighting, you can convert a good portion of your garage to a reading space. Don’t forget to add perhaps a nice bookshelf containing your favorite reads.

If your house isn’t quite big, converting your garage into a functional space can help you eliminate the costs of expansion. However, when converting your garage, you may have to check with local regulations for necessary requirements and possible restrictions. Also, converting your garage might require making necessary interior and exterior updates. You may have to replace the door or make the room more airtight. 

Garage Game Room

If your garage has enough space, then you can dedicate a good portion of it to video games, board games, arcade games, pool, or more while storing your items in other parts of the garage. With your game room in the garage, you won’t have to disturb other members of your family with sounds.

For video games, you can add comfortable seats, gaming console, lighting, and a nice sound system. Arcade games don’t usually eat up much space but make sure to place it near an electrical outlet. For comfort, place pool tables where there is sufficient space to play.

To make the room usable, clear out clutter and remove all toxic materials, including chemicals, fertilizer, and paint. You don’t want to keep breathing in lingering fumes of chemicals while playing games. Consider also climate control. You may need to seal off your garage door to make the space more watertight. Likewise, it’s vital to put in place proper insulation, especially if you live in a cold region.

  • How Often Should I Perform a Garage Door Tune Up?

    Your garage door is probably the largest moving hardware in your home. This door has components that are working hard numerous times a day just to provide you with egress and ingress into your garage. 

  • How to Convert from Extension Springs to Garage Door Torsion Springs

    Converting extension springs to torsion springs comes with a lot of benefits and Bob's Advance Garage Doors can do this for you efficiently. Most garage door fitters and owners prefer torsion springs because they are sturdier and last longer. 

  • How to Tell If Garage Door Sensor is Bad

    A garage door closing on someone could just be too disastrous. To prevent accidental damage and injury that comes with accidental closing, all garage doors are required by federal law to have an automatic reverse feature called garage door sensor. 

  • How to Clean Your Garage Door

    Having time for home maintenance seems to be a challenge these days because we work longer hours to meet up with the increasing financial responsibilities. Eventually, when we do ‘squeeze out’ time for cleaning our homes, the garage doors don’t seem to be considered.
