A garage doesn’t always have to be boring and dull. There are many creative ways to remodel a garage in a more creative manner. With the help of remodeling, a garage can serve more of a purpose than just being a place to park your car in.
1. A Reading Corner:
Only devoted readers will be able to understand the appeal of a cozy little reading room. Adopting an urban style for your garage while leaving the façade undone will give it a new look while retaining its old persona. With proper flooring/carpeting, shelves and lightening, you can turn your garage into your beloved reading corner. Oh, and installing glass doors will give you a beautiful view of the street and the open sky. What more could we want?
2. A Gym:
When it’s time to get into shape, your garage can also serve as a gym. Instead of getting an expensive gym membership, use your garage and transform it into a gym. A garage is spacious enough to hold all the equipment and secluded enough from the house to avoid intruders. With proper flooring, a nice paint job and lighting fixtures, you can even invite your friends to join you too. Make sure to install a heater and protective mats in your garage-gym.
3. A Home Theater:
Is there a person who hasn’t dreamed of their own personal home theater? Most definitely not! A garage can also serve a dual purpose by being used as a theatre. The large screen can be hidden behind sliding doors along the wall. If you feel like getting that outdoor cinema vibe, then open your garage doors or install a skylight and enjoy a unique experience. In the extreme winters of Calgary, a heating system and carpeted floors will keep it warm and cozy.
4. Living Room:
Installing of sliding doors, large windows and proper lightening will give your garage a completely new look. This makes the garage the ideal place for a home addition.
5. Game Room:
Garages give us the perfect opportunity to place large gaming equipment like a roulette table, a foosball table or even blackjack table. If you want to make it even more sophisticated, install a wet bar too.
6. Green House:
All the people with green thumbs and a passion for gardening can completely transform their garage into a greenhouse. Keep in mind that this home addition would require a detailed renovation to get the desired outcome.
Having one bedroom less in your home is a dilemma to deal with. Should we buy a new house? How can we leave the old neighborhood? Will we be able to get a house exactly like this one? These are just some of the questions that come to mind. Look around and you’ll know all hope is not lost yet. A garage can be turned into one of the best, maybe even the coolest bedrooms in the house. Also, a house’s resale value increases by a large margin with a garage-bedroom.
