10 Garage Conversion Ideas To Improve Your Home

A simple garage has more potential than you can ever imagine. With a little effort and imagination, you can turn a cold and sober place in a welcoming and peaceful area…or not. The final result depends on your wishes! The options are endless but, unfortunately, you still have to take into consideration various aspects. One of them is the amount of space you have.

The other one is related to what is your idea regarding a garage conversion. What would you like to have instead of it, an office, a reading corner, a playground for your kids? Maybe the following images will help you decide what you really need.

1. Garage renovated for family play.

Kids are always full of energy. Why not teach them how to channel it on something good for their health, like sport? Who knows, maybe in time they will develop a passion for sports! Besides that, such a place will stimulate their imagination and help them to improve their skills. Climbing monkey bars, swings, ropes, gym mats, sounds like a perfect playground, don’t you think?{found on menterarchitects}.

2. Cozy guest house.

Always be prepared for surprise visits! Think about your friends from out of town. Where could they sleep if they decide to come over? Turn your garage in a small guest house and you won’t have to be concerned about this anymore. Notice how important is a room divider in the case above. Used as a TV stand, this also provides storage and architectural detail to the room.{found on urban}.

3. Stylish lounge with a bar.

Modern Craft Construction succeeded in creating a gorgeous living space area where once was a garage. They did their job so well that I wouldn’t have noticed this space was actually a garage. The lack of windows in that area, and the glass garage door were the only ones that made me think of this option.  This is a good place to watch a movie with your family, or to throw a party. You have plenty of space!

4. Sleeping loft, Santa Barbara.

We all need a special place where we can find our peace and unleash our creativity.  This splendid loft has almost everything you need: a sleeping area, a small kitchen and bathroom, huge barn doors with a rustic charm and a beautiful climbing plant that will bring freshness to this space. Such a lovely setting would make you dream about an endless summer.{found on bethdana}.

Who would have thought a garage can be converted in such a romantic room? The mosquito net over the bed is the main attraction. I can only imagine a fresh airflow playing with those white curtains!{found on schappacherwhite}.

How simple would be to have a remote control that will help us to fulfill our dreams with a simple push of a button! One thing I know for sure: somebody’s dream has come true thanks to Kerrie Kelly Designers. They converted a garage into this beautiful family lounge. An ethanol fireplace niched into a sheet rock wall was added to create a warm and relaxing atmosphere. The vividly painted items on the shelves and these beautiful flowered chairs bring a splash of color and induce a whimsical feeling.

7. Turn your garage into a man cave.

Have you ever wanted to play pool or darts or anything else, but you weren’t in the mood to get out of the house? How about designing your own space for such activities… in the garage? A pool table, darts, a foosball table, rummy, board games, video games, all of these could easily find their place in your garage. If you have enough space, you can add a bar and some tables. After this,  all you have to do is call your friends and spend a memorable time with them.

8. Home gym to stay in shape.

It’s not so easy to stay in shape these days! We are always in a hurry, many of us work a lot and are too busy thinking about something else than about what should we eat and when. Not to mention that we don’t have enough time to go to the gym daily. So how can you change your lifestyle without running all day long from home to work, then to the gym, then home again? This is definitely not a way to stay in shape, but a way of dealing with more stress every day. Turn your old garage in a home gym and stop wasting precious time and money to go to the gym.

9. Create a suitable working place for you…in your garage.

Whether you’re a freelancer, a writer, a painter or just a person that enjoys spending a lot of time on the internet, you need a proper space to do your job in peace. If that place can be furnished and decorated by you, even better! So go ahead, think about what you need, make a list, buy whatever you need and turn your garage in an office or an art studio.

10. Turn your garage in a home cinema.

Everybody loves watching movies, it’s a relaxing activity. One of my dreams is to have a cinema in my own house and organize movie sessions with all of my friends. If you’re a film fan with a useless garage… consider this as an opportunity to use it. The basic things you will need are: a big screen, good sound equipment, some comfortable armchairs or a big sofa and popcorn.
