Four Ways to Make More of your Garage
Although many of us have a garage, are we actually making the most of it? A garage can easily become a bit of a dumping ground, a storage facility or a place which is out of sight and out of mind – however, there is so much more that can be done with a garage which can improve your home and your lifestyle, and could also increase the value of your home – here are a few ideas that may be of interest to you if your garage is currently not living up to its full potential…
An Additional Bedroom – Transforming a garage into an extra bedroom is a great way to create more space. A ground floor bedroom can also be the perfect guest room, or accommodation for an elderly relative who can no longer manage to live alone. It is a cheaper option than moving to another home if you are in need of an additional bedroom too. Depending on the space you have in your garage you can even add an ensuite to make it a more self-sufficient room.
A Home Office – If you have embraced post covid life and are now working from home, having a space that is dedicated to work is important. A garage can be the perfect office space that you need, and it is easy enough to convert. It also has the benefit of being more separate from the rest of the home so you can lock the door on it at the end of the day and enjoy your home away from your work!
A Home Gym – If you are fed up with paying for gym membership, queuing up to use equipment, and lacking the motivation to travel to the gym, then turn your garage into your own personal workout space! Make sure that you pay attention to security when you have all that expensive gym equipment in there – look into security doors such from specialists like this garage doors Taunton based company www.upandoverdoorsltd.co.uk/garage-doors/garage-doors-taunton and enjoy being able to work out in your own home!
An Extension to your Kitchen – Many of us hanker after a larger kitchen – if your garage is next to your kitchen then it isn’t difficult to gain the extra kitchen space that you want by knocking through and making the room bigger. This can mean that you could have a separate utility room, a kitchen diner or more workspace to cook in.
