5 Exciting things you can transform your garage into

Do you have garage space just sitting there doing nothing? Do you only use your garage as a place to park your vehicles, or to store your lawnmower, fishing gear and tools? Garages are often the most underused area of your house, but they have the potential for much more exciting purposes than as a space for your car. You might need extra living space or a room for some specific purpose. Consider one of the following ideas for things you can transform your garage into.

Things You Can Transform Your Garage IntoHome office

Do you work from home, or want to work at home but don’t have a dedicated space? Have you thought of converting your garage into a home office? The main benefit of having a home office space is having a work environment close by. You could be more productive, as you will be able to complete work at your leisure, while having any needed breaks in between. Then, when you’ve decided that you’re done for the day, simply tidy up and head back into your living zone.

To convert your garage into a home office, all you need to do is to put down some smart flooring, and purchase some office furniture and storage units. Wulla!

A single garage is an ideal size to convert into a home office. You wouldn’t need an office the size of a double garage unless you has a few work colleagues joining you, or you needed extra space for something else. For example, you could set up the other side as a relax/meeting/brainstorming area.

Home gym

A double garage is an ideal size to use as a home gym. You’d have more than enough room for your treadmill, weights, exercise bike, rowing machine and bench press machine. If you are into CrossFit, you will find there is still plenty of room left for your CrossFit equipment as well.

Converting your garage into a home gym has several advantages:

  • Get and stay fit without the hassle of going out to a gym;
  • Save on expensive gym memberships;
  • Getting your money’s worth for all your expensive equipment will motivate you to exercise;
  • If you are self-conscious, you can workout in private without being gawked at by other gym patrons.

Apart from the cost of your equipment, the conversion to a gym is relatively cheap. All you need to do is to lay down rubber flooring on top of the cement floor. If you desire, you can decorate with motivational posters and mirrors to make it look authentic.

Play/games room

Are the living areas and bedrooms of your home constantly littered with toys and kid’s paraphernalia? If so, perhaps you need a playroom as your kid’s special space. Convert your garage into a playing zone to solve the dilemma of where to keep the ever-expanding number of toys that accumulate throughout your house. Your kids will appreciate their own space where they can spread out their toys and make noise without disturbing anyone, or being bothered themselves.

Plan the decor of your playroom to grow with your children. Don’t install any permanent “kid” decor that can’t be easily changed to appeal to older kids. Set up plenty of shelves and cabinets that will be suitable for both toys now and later on when they’re older.

Safety is an important aspect to consider when renovating your garage to use as a playroom.

  • Make sure all electrical points are installed high enough to be unreachable for young children;
  • Be sure to connect any high cabinets to the wall so they don’t fall on anyone;
  • Avoid having furniture with sharp edges;
  • Lay carpet or non-slip tiles on the floor.

Music studio

If you are a budding musician or a would-be professional, you’d love the idea of having your very own area for performing, recording your music, or even just for jamming with your friends. A double garage is ideal for this purpose. Sound-proofing is essential, so you won’t have any worries about irritating the neighbours or your house mates. Install acoustic panels on the walls to absorb some of the sound waves. Unfortunately, these pieces are quite expensive but are worth the cost.

Self-contained unit

The most exciting idea is to convert your double garage into a self-contained unit. You could use it for guests, for your aged parents to have their privacy but still have you near-by, or as an Airbnb rental unit for some extra income.

Unfortunately, this is the most costly idea for a garage conversion as it involves changes to your house. Installing a kitchen, bathroom and a suitable door is essential. The other things such as cupboards, walls to have separate rooms is up to you. Open plans and stand still cupboards work well too. Also, air conditioning and heating if you live in a cold / hot climate is always a good idea.

Whichever way you decide to convert your garage, be sure to go through the planning stages properly so you won’t make huge mistakes you will regret bitterly.

  4. I’m gone to say to my little brother, that he should also visit this
    website on regular basis to take updated from hottest news.

  5. I really love your site.. Very nice colors & theme. Did you build this site yourself?

    Please reply back as I’m planning to create my own personal website and would love to find out where
    you got this from or just what the theme is named.
    Many thanks!

  6. First off I would like to say excellent blog! I had a quick
    question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how
    you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
    I have had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my
    thoughts out there. I do take pleasure in writing however it
    just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any recommendations or tips? Kudos!

  7. My brother suggested I might like this web site.
    He was totally right. This post actually made my day.
    You can not imagine just how much time I had spent for this info!

  8. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God. They deny Jesus as their Messiah, and the Bible tells us this Jewish Messiah will be the counterfiet that will bring about a false peace, and ultimatley the great tribulation.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart. Jesus loves you more than you could imagine. He wants to have a relationship with you and redeem you from your sins. Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! God bless!
