We are always looking for ideas to generate more space. In some instances we might have plans drawn up, and then pay a contractor to construct an addition to an already existing house. We may even look into the possibility of purchasing a shed and have it erected in our back yard, but did you ever stop to think that the garage you park your car in may be a lot more valuable than using it to store automobiles? Here are a few ideas for you to consider the next time you need a little more space.
1. Indoor Tool Shed
Almost everything we do around the house requires some sort of tool and unless we already have a tool shed in our back yard, the garage will be an ideal place to store these tools. The great part about using the garage, especially if it is attached to the house, is that you can access any tool you need, even if it is a rainy day. You can also take advantage of those garage doors and bring your riding mower inside.
2. Home Gym
How many times have you convinced yourself to join a gym in an effort to helping you lose a few pounds, only to end up refusing to go because you could not afford the gas or the time? Your garage will be an ideal place to invite an exercise buddy to provide you with the support you need. Have a big screen television installed and you can feel as though you are right there with the instructor. As for the equipment, a good tip is to look on Craigslist in your area. You might find some good deals there that will help you save money.
3. Personal Studio
You would probably want to make it sound proof, but the garage has been used in the past as an ideal room for the kids to practice their music. They can have their own studio set up in the garage, where they can practice their hobbies without bothering everyone else in the house, including guests. Moreover, it would be their personal space where they can let the creativity flow.
4. Home Office
It is surprising that more homeowners do not consider using the garage to put together their own office at home. You don’t even have to be your own boss, although it would be a good idea. Many employees have the option to work from home, even with the garage doors, wouldn’t it be great if you can turn your garage into a high class office that you will not even have to drive to. This same idea can be applied to transforming your garage into an extra bedroom! This is a good idea for those who do not use their garages to park the cars, or have extra space or a carport for the car aside. Use the space available to you to increase your home value by adding extra rooms.
5. Party Room
If you are the type of person who enjoys going to the local watering hole and driving back home after you have had one too many, why not turn your garage into a place where you can invite some friends over, have a few drinks and just hang out. You won’t have to concern yourself about drinking and driving and if in fact you do drink too much, you will not have very far to go. Buy a large screen TV, decorate the interior with accessories of your favorite football team, have some games, good speakers, a pantry for snacks, a cozy couch and some arm chairs – and you have your own man cave or girls hangout room.
