4 Garage Conversion Ideas to Transform Your Space
Many homeowners have a garage that they don't use very much. It usually sits around as a storage space for clutter and it could be put to better use. The truth is, most garages are a great size to be turned into something more useful such as a gym or office. So if you want to transform your garage, here are some ideas to help.
Replace garage doors with glass
Many people overlook their garage as a usable space because it is too dark. However, you don’t need to change any of the garage’s structure in order to bring in more light. You can get rid of the old garage door and find a double-glazing specialist to install windows and doors instead. Some garages may also have the potential to add skylights.
Create a double-storey conversion
If you really want to create a transformation within your home, you may be able to convert it into a double-storey conversion. If you have a larger-than-average single-car garage attached to the house by a wall at the front, with good ceiling height, it’s a great start for this kind of conversion. It’s the perfect opportunity to add another bedroom to your home with a kitchen, living area or shower room downstairs. Some homes could create an entire granny flat, perfect for guests.
Create an entertaining space
Your garage will have loads of potential, depending on what you want you can create something really special. If your garage is connected to your kitchen, you can extend it into an entertaining space with a bar with some comfy chairs, creating your own cosy cocktail bar in your home. If your garage also opens up to the garden, you can create a space that can be used to create a garden bar that is great to use during the summer.
Some external garages aren’t in great condition which doesn't make them suitable for conversion. Many older garages can benefit from being replaced completely which allows you much more freedom to do what you want with the space. You could build a summer house in the space or add an extension to your home.
