How many times has this scenario ran its course in your home:
You purchase a new piece of furniture, nothing large like a bed or dining room table, but maybe a smaller end table or bookshelf. To make room for the new addition, you decide that an existing piece of furniture will have to go. But what will happen to the older furniture? You decide you’ll just put it in the garage for now and try to find something to do with it later.
In this situation, homeowners usually end up leaving the older furniture to gather dust in their garage for far too long, turning their garage into nothing more than a storage unit.
But what if there was a way to transform your garage into something more than a catchall or a glorified closet? Renovating your garage can completely change your home for the better. If you’ve never considering a garage makeover, here are some popular ideas to inspire you!
If you have a two-car garage then you have more than enough space to hold more than enough gym equipment for an awesome workout. Converting your garage into a home gym is one of the easiest options because no permanent modifications are required. A rubber mat will protect your garage floor from dropped weights and also provide you with a safer, slip-resistant workout area.
Eliminating the commute to the gym means that you will be much more inclined to spend more time exercising!
If you are hosting friends and family this Thanksgiving then you probably understand the importance of some extra space. Having a spare bedroom is great for those situations because it allows relatives to visit without spending money on a hotel room.
Converting your garage into a bedroom is relatively easy. The only modifications you might want to look into for a spare bedroom would be adding a ceiling fan or a water line for a sink / shower area. There’s nothing wrong with keeping it simple when it comes to furniture, just make sure there’s no drop-off in comfort when compared to the rest of your house.
A garage is arguably the best section of your home to convert into a home theater. There is ample space for a large screen as well as large and comfortable seating options. Garage door windows can easily be blacked out to create that unmistakable darkness we all love about the cinema.
Incorporating a cutting edge sound system will take your home theater to the next level. Another benefit of a home theater in your garage is convenience; no more paying an arm and a leg for soda and popcorn!
If you’re looking for a way to keep the fun going with your remodeling project, a game room is perfect for your home. Converting your garage into a game room is very easy – just add some classic games like a pool table, air hockey, foosball, and anything else you think would be a hit. Fun posters, lamps and other decorations will provide a casual atmosphere for hours of entertainment.
You might consider throwing an epoxy coating on the floor of your game room, as it will extend the life of your floor tremendously.
