Think Outside the Box for Your Garage Conversion

Spruce up the space in interesting and outrageous ways

We have all seen garages that have been transformed into a wood shop, mechanic’s space, or man cave. But a converted garage is such a versatile space that it can become just about anything. Don’t think of it as a former garage. Think of it as an addition to your home. What would you like to use the space for? Here are a few particularly unique garage conversion ideas:

Studio Apartment: Depending on the size of your garage it could function as a fully contained living space. The tiny house movement has shown us that it doesn’t take a lot of square footage to accommodate all the comforts of home.

Gym: Rather than giving up space in your bedroom to a treadmill or weight machine, set them up in the garage. It’s easier to get motivated to exercise when you can do it in a dedicated space built exactly for working out. Plus, you’ll be able to hang the equipment from the ceiling, like a punching bag!

Skate Park: Have your kids been begging you to set up a half pipe in the backyard? Keep your landscaping intact and build a mini ramp in the garage instead. That way weather never has to bring an end to the fun.

Green House: If your garage is exposed to a lot of direct sunlight it can become the perfect year-round growing space. Adding floor to ceiling windows and a skylight allows you to grow you favorite fruits, vegetables, and flowers in any season. The space can also double as a patio.

Kitchen Extension: If your kitchen can’t accommodate all the equipment you desire, why not expand out into the garage? This can be the perfect place to put a second fridge or deep freeze and can even accommodate specialized equipment like a wood-fired pizza oven.

Playroom: Toys can prove to be a scourge that takes over every space in your home. Cut down on the clutter and give your kids a safe and fun space to play by making over your garage.

Craft Cave: Garages can contain more than just sawdust and motor oil. If you like to do craft projects your garage is a great space to store all your materials/equipment in the same place where you have room to work.

Trophy Room: If you have valuable collections why keep them hidden in a closet? A garage equipped with display cases is a great place to show off your most prized possessions.
