How to repurpose your garage or shed and give it its charm back

At first, when you build or buy a property, even portion of the house and the adjacent structures seems very interesting. But, with time, spaces such as the garage, the shed or other adjoining structures become almost useless. They simply take space and offer nothing in exchange. In such cases, it would be useful to repurpose them.For example, a garage can be turned into a number of different things. You could fill it with storage units or build shelves on the walls and turn it into a storage space. You can use it to store all your tools, your bicycle, all the things that you don’t use during a particular season and, of course, the car if it’s the case.

If you no longer use the garage as a home for your car, you can completely restructure it. For example, you could turn it into a sort of indoor garden when you can raise plants, vegetables, flowers and other things. It could be useful for those species that need to sit in the dark or somewhere where there’s moisture.

A shed can also be repurposed. You can use it to make a great guest house for the kids and their friends. It could be their retreat, similar to a tree house. You can even make it look like a tree house is they don’t have one. Put a bed, some armchairs, a table and a cabinet inside and it should be enough. Also, don’t forget about the rug. Let the kids decorate the rest as they want.

If you live on a farm or something similar, you can repurpose the shed in a different way. You could turn it into a chicken house. There’s not much you need to change. You just need some wood and some nails.

These are just a few ideas and suggestions. You can come up with your own concept. It all depends on the environment and the present state of both the garage or shed and their use.{picture sources:1,2,3}.
