For most people, a garage is just a room to park the family car. It is often narrow and long with no décor whatsoever. However, this is a huge misconception. Irrespective of the size of your garage, you can use the space in different ways apart from just keeping your car.
Let’s take a look at some ideas to help utilize your garage space better, especially when space is limited inside your home.
Create a Home Office
A home office need not be large since you are the only person working in it. It can be easily fitted within your garage by creating a stud wall or interior wall for separation. Add the right furniture and cabinets, upgrade the lighting, fit an AC and a computer and your home office is ready.
And the best part is, being away from the main house; it is secluded and offers you complete privacy and peace.
Convert it into a Kitchen Diner
If the garage is adjacent to your kitchen and the kitchen is too small to have a separate dining space, redesign your garage.
Knock down the wall separating the kitchen and the garage to create a large space. Then create a partition depending on how much space you would require for the dining area and to park the family car.
You can enjoy the twin benefits of a garage along with a spacious kitchen-diner.
An Extra Storage Room
Out of space inside the house to store all the junk and odds and ends? Do not fret!
Your garage can act as an additional storage space. Not only can you store all your junk there but you can also use it as a tool shed to store all your equipment or garden tools.
You can access the space both from outside and also through an inside door connected to the house for maximum convenience.
An Additional Playroom
Kids can be boisterous and you don’t want them to be playing inside the house all the time. The garage can be their perfect playground where they can do whatever they please without soiling your interiors or disturbing your peace.
Just install an inside door and keep it open to keep an eye on them while they are playing.
Your Home Gym
Everybody craves a home gym where they can exercise anytime they want. It is so much convenient than enrolling at a gym and sticking to a schedule. However, if space is at a premium inside the house, convert a part of your garage into your private home gym.
A partition wall at the right place can create a neat home gym where you can do free-hand workouts or exercise with small equipment or even install a treadmill.
