Whilst many of us see our garages as a dumping ground or simply a space to store the car, we think garages are capable of being used for so much more. With proper garage door seals and insulation, your garage can be made into an extension of your home and even a spare room to give you that extra space you have been craving. Take a look at some of our favourite garage conversion ideas to make the most of your garage space.
One of our favourite garage conversion ideas is to turn your garage into a separate workshop space. If you’ve been looking for a space to keep all of your projects, a garage can be the perfect space to keep the noise and mess of your work away from the rest o the house. By converting your garage into a workshop, you can create the perfect place to put together all of your home DIY projects and even your work projects for a home workspace if you run your business from your home. One of the biggest bonuses of using your garage as a workshop is being able to open up one of the walls of your room, the garage door, for ventilation. If you are more of a gardener, your garage is also the perfect spot for a gardening work station to streamline the potting and tending process with a full workbench.
Whilst dumping belongings into your garage space is nothing new, a whole host of garage organisation ideas from the big to the small mean that garage storage no longer needs to be messy. Our garage door weather stripping and threshold seals can weatherproof your garage door to ensure no water or other unwanted nuisances can enter your garage. This means that your garage becomes the perfect overflow space to keep your belongings organised.
Some of our top tips for organising your garage space include adding a pegboard panel to your wall to hang everything from garden tools to decorating equipment and ladders on. You can even find a home for your tools if you have a home workshop. Magnetic strips can also be attached to walls to house things such as screwdrivers and pliers. Using labelled boxes in tidy shelving is ideal for finding anything you need straight away. You can even create a space for smelly sports equipment and muddy walking boots for easy access away from a clean house.
Depending on how you would like to use your space and how your plumbing is set up, one top small garage conversion idea is to turn your garage into a guest bathroom or bedroom. One of the benefits of this is that your garage often covers more floor space than your master bathroom so can be an ideal space for a guest bathroom, particularly for those with mobility issues who need ground floor access. With proper insulation and a garage door conversion, your garage space can take on a whole new lease of life and give your guests a private space to stay without having to bed down on the living room sofa.
With recent events leading to a large number of us working from home, having a decent workspace in your home has become more valuable than ever with many of us taking over the dining table in order to have space to work. Why not combat this by creating a dedicated office in your garage space? Simply adding a desk, light and some decorations can be a game changer whilst adding a comfy rug and wall decoration can make your garage office seem more homely. Be sure to add proper garage door seals to any openings to avoid that annoying air sound from the wind and to stop any water entering the room in bad weather.
One of the most popular garage conversion ideas of the lockdown has been the creation of a home gym in the garage. As many gyms have been closed and exercise opportunities limited, many people have turned to home workouts to get in shape and your garage is the perfect place to use for this without cluttering up living spaces with bulky exercise equipment. Add some handy wall hooks to hang things such as weights or skipping ropes clear some space for exercise mats or bigger exercise machines install a mirror for those ‘working out’ selfies and you are all set.
