If you’re constantly dreaming of more space in your home for an extra bedroom or that home office you’ve always wanted, then, converting your garage into an extra room might be your best bet. Typically, if garages are not used to house automobiles, they turn into a narnia for endless piles of unnecessary junk. Garages are usually spacious and if you’re not using it to its full potential, then you’re wasting a lot of useable space. In fact, when you go to your garage, you might find piles and piles of junk that you don’t want or need. It might be hard at first but getting rid of things you don’t need will clear up some excess baggage, literally and maybe even figuratively speaking. Here are some of the ways you can convert your garage into something more purposeful:
Turn It Into A Bedroom
If your garage is pretty big, why not turn it into an extra bedroom? Turning your garage into a bedroom can give your guests a nice place to stay if you don’t have a guest room yet. Also, if you’re family is still growing, now would be the perfect time to convert it to a spare bedroom.
Turn It Into A Bar
More often than not, a garage is traditionally viewed as a manly space. So instead of driving your man away completely, why not turn your garage into a bar that both of you can enjoy? Throw a bbq outside and a home bar can really be a great addition to your home. If you want to build your own bar, there are plenty of custom bars available that you can make use of. Add in a mini-fridge and some seating arrangement and your bar will soon be open for some entertaining!
Been wanting to get fit for the summer but can’t stand working out in front of people? Why not turn your garage to an at-home gym? And the fact that it is one of the easiest garage conversion options you have doesn’t hurt either. You will need to add a little bit more ventilation to your garage, however, since you’re bound to be hot and sweaty in there. Moreover, you can add some fitness equipment and mirrors to fully commit to the whole at home gym idea. However, if you’re on a budget, you can just set up an old tv and play some fitness videos that you can follow to get fit. What’s important here is that you have a space that is big enough for your body to properly move.
