Home Remodeling: 5 Ways to Repurpose or Update Your Garage Space

If you could include a new space in your home, what would it be? You might choose something practical like another bedroom, or a space for your children to play. A home remodeling team can make this dream a reality with a garage remodel that brings new purpose to an old space.

Traditional Transformations

Garages are traditionally used as storage space for outdoor equipment and cars. This space often fails to meet homeowner needs, leaving some parts or the whole garage completely unused. But extra space is a commodity and it is important to use it as much as you can. Here are a few ideas for updating or repurposing your garage.

  1. Play Room – If you are tired of children’s toys cluttering the home, consider a whole room where your kids can have their own space to spread out and have fun. This can be a bright, fun space – and the children can help plan it. Your professional contractor may have some ideas on storage solutions and floor choices to make this room more child friendly.
  2. Home Gym – Why pay gym memberships and commute to a gym when you could bring the workout to your home? With a custom home remodel of your garage, you will have plenty of room for weights, a treadmill, stationary bike, and any other equipment you might want. With padded gym flooring and mirrored walls, your garage will be just as well equipped as a state of the art gym.
  3. Guest Bedroom – Provide more sleeping space with an extra bedroom attached to your home. While you will not be able to market your home as having a garage, you will be able to market it with an additional bedroom, which could add value upon resale. Your residential contractor will help you transform this into a true part of your home with proper insulation and HVAC. After this transformation is complete, you won’t even recognize that it was a garage.

More Exciting Remodels

If you are looking for more non-traditional remodels for your garage, here are a couple of ideas for you.

  1. Hobby Workshop – Do you like to escape into a hobby? A garage remodel is the perfect place. Whether it is a woodworking shop, an art studio, a music studio, or something else entirely, you can remodel a hobby workshop to suit your individual needs. Complete with HVAC and soundproofing in some cases, this could be the right remodeling project to finish off your home.
  2. Man Cave – This can certainly be a dream room that the neighbors will talk about. Express yourself with a space of your own filled with sports memorabilia or games that you love. No man cave is complete without a large screen television. Your home remodeling contractor can handle all of the electrical needs as most garages are not suited for the big game.
