5 Extraordinary Converted Garages To Inspire You
You'd never believe these spaces used to be stations for cars
Gone are the days when garages were just made for cars. Especially with the rise of tiny homes, a lot of homeowners are starting to get creative with this wasted space and transforming it into a functional extension of their houses. If you find yourself needing more living space for whatever reason, converting your automobile depot isn't a bad idea as it can even increase the curb appeal of your property.
Thinking about embarking on this project? To help get you started, we've put together a few photo pegs you can save for inspiration. Check them out below:
If you've got a spacious unit, don't be afraid to turn it into a flat—complete with a lofted bed and a sitting area. This is great for hosting relatives or friends who are visiting for a quick vacation.
If you're the type who loves hosting game nights and dinner parties, turning your garage into a makeshift dive bar is a good way to have a proper space for entertaining guests. As a bonus, you get to contain the after-party clutter in a room separate from your main house.
Are you a creative who enjoys painting as a hobby? Don't think twice about building a studio or a crafting corner. Just make sure to layer the lighting so you can see clearly what you're working on—some closed garages tend to get quite dark even during the day.
If you'd like your own workspace but you can't find room for it at home, your garage might as well be your new office. If you have enough free space, you can even add a long table where you can hold meetings with your colleagues in the comfort of your own house.
For those who enjoy excercising their green thumb, the garage is perfect for housing garden tools and supplies. Give it rustic flavor by using wooden crates as storage bins and using colorful knickknacks to liven up the place.
