When you think about your garage, you probably think of a place to park your cars. You might also think of a cluttered mess of storage, if your garage falls under that category. Some homeowners, however, don’t use their garages for any of those uses. If you would like to expand your living area and don’t really need to use the garage to store your vehicle then we are the company for you. (COMPANY NAME) specializes in Garage Conversions. Here are some conversions that you might consider:
This is an increasingly popular option as surround sound and home theater systems get bigger and louder. If you like to have friends over for drinks, snacks and video games or a big football game on the widescreen television, turning your garage into a man cave might be the perfect use for this area. Best of all, the garage is pretty insulated from the rest of the house, so while the guys get loud rooting for their favorite team, the ladies can talk in peace and quiet in the living room or dining room.
Has your family outgrown your house because you have more people than you have bedrooms? Whether your teens don’t want to share a room anymore or you are expecting another baby, turning your garage into a spare bedroom can expand your living area without forcing you to move. You will need to insulate the garage, run air conditioning and heating ducts, and put up a permanent wall in order to complete this project. You will probably also want to put down wood flooring or carpeting.
Even if you decide to turn your garage into a family room, man cave or guest bedroom, you don’t have to dedicate the entire space to its new use. Your garage, after all, is probably quite large! You can block off a section to function as storage space. Some homeowners decide to put up a wall several feet away from the garage door, and use the existing garage door as an access point for the storage area. This would allow easy access to lawn equipment, sporting goods and garden tools from the outdoors.
No matter what you choose to do with your garage, always remember that it does provide additional square footage, should you need it as living area now or at some point in the future. Talk to a real estate agent to find out how converting the garage into something else might affect resale value; in some cases, it will raise the value, and in others, it will lower it.
