A garage can easily become forgettable – the place where you park your car and store your lawnmower. But your garage is an extension of your home and should be treated as such. There are a variety of ways that you can use your garage and remodeling it to suit your individual needs is one way to get the most out of it.
There are many uses for a garage. While parking vehicles in it is the obvious answer, it is only the beginning. Let’s look at a variety of ways you can remodel your garage to better suit your family’s needs.
Let’s start with the obvious use first. In many homes today, a single or even double garage is not enough. With teenagers having vehicles and homeowners having second cars, there simply is not enough room in the garage for every automobile. Plus, many people find parking in the driveway unsightly and inconvenient. This is especially true if you live in a residential neighborhood.
There are a few solutions to this matter. You could extend your garage, but if this isn’t possible, you’re still in luck. You can remodel your garage with a few modifications or you can get a car lift that enables double-decker car storage in your garage (provided there is enough overhead space). Either way, don’t let the current state of your garage prevent you from considering how the space could further accommodate your parking needs.
In addition to using garages for vehicles, some people remodel their garages to add additional useful spaces. Here are some ideas that may make your garage more useful to you.
- Workshop – One of the most useful areas added on to a garage is a fully wired workshop that can store tools, lawn equipment, and all the necessary components of a wood working studio.
- Studio – An office or art studio studio with its own entrance is the perfect reason for a garage remodel. Relatively separate from the home, a garage studio would allow you to work and create in peace and quiet.
- Guest Apartment – A small guest apartment that is fully plumbed with electricity is a great addition. Just make sure that all the permits are pulled to make this a legal addition. Any reliable home contractor should be able to handle this for you.
A New Space
While remodeled garages are desirable if/when it comes time to resell your home, you may also decide that you do not want a garage anymore and want to create an entirely new space. It’s best to think carefully about this before you make a final decision, but if you decide to do away with your garage to make an entirely new space, a knowledgeable home contractor can help you build out the space into a family den, game room, new bedroom, guest house, man cave, home office, fitness room, or children’s playroom. The possibilities for a new space are endless. With the help of your remodeling contractor, let your imagination run wild.
