Many of us are now choosing to extend our homes for a variety of reasons. One popular option is that of using the garage for additional living space. If you are wanting to convert your garage, but are stuck for ideas, then carry on reading as we share 5 garage conversion ideas with you.
One of the most popular reasons for converting the garage is that of creating a large living space. This can be done as a separate living area to create an additional living room, or in most cases it is used to form a large open plan living space that connects to the kitchen.
If your home only has a small galley kitchen, then why not convert your garage into a brand new kitchen? This can be easily achieved by removing walls and opening up the space to create a large kitchen diner. The existing galley kitchen can be used as a utility room, or you could even add a downstairs WC.
If you work from home and don’t have a home office, as perhaps you are using a spare bedroom or working from the kitchen table, then a garage conversion provides you with the perfect solution. It will help to distinguish your working day from your home life, while enabling you to have a safe space for all of those important documents and papers.
If you normally work out in the living room and dream of having your own gym, then a garage conversion can be the way to create a gym at home. Creating that dedicated workout space will provide you with not only the extra room to workout, but also the motivation to exercise. You’ll also have the space to store large exercise equipment.
An extra bedroom
One final idea is that you could extend upwards from the garage conversion, so that you could have an extra bedroom. This is a great idea if you have adult children at home who need a separate living space. Add a stud wall if the space is large enough so that you can include a bathroom and WC.
