01 Aug How to Repurpose Your Garage
Having a nice garage is a huge value to your property, not just from an appraisal perspective but also because it protects your property like your vehicle or lawn tools. While garages are great to have, not everyone needs all of the space. If you aren’t using your garage, or aren’t using all of the space available, there are many different ways to use the extra space to your advantage.
Turn Your Garage into a Gym
Garages are great spaces for an all purpose gym because they’re generally cool in temperature and have concrete floors. You can hang a punching bag, install a weight set and add a padded section for floor work. If you’re using your garage for a home gym, you’ll want to consider options for light and insulation. Depending on the time of day you work out, you might want a garage door with windows to let in natural light. Or, if you prefer to keep your workouts more private, you might opt for a garage door with no windows. To stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer, make sure your garage door forms a decent seal. If it doesn’t, call Glenn’s Garage Doors for a repair or replacement.
Turn Your Garage into a Studio
If you enjoy painting, sculpture or other types of art, consider turning your extra garage space into a personal studio. You won’t risk ruining carpet or having a pet or child knock over paint by keeping a designated art space outside of your living areas. To utilize your garage as a studio, consider a garage door that lets in a good amount of light. This could be one with large windows, or you could invest in the popular rolling screen. This way, you’ll be able to enjoy the outdoors while remaining protected from the elements or pests.
Turn Your Garage into a Workshop
Converting all or a portion of your garage into a shop is an excellent idea to get more use out of your space. Depending on what type of work you’re doing, you can install tables, saws, heavy machinery or additional shelving get the most out of the square footage available. When using your garage as a shop, you’ll want to consider various safety factors like property ventilation from and easy-to-open garage door as well as sound-proofing panels and a study concrete floor.
