Your garage is a unique space in your home. It is likely not cooled or heated, but it is covered and insulated and can be used for a variety of different things. The most common and obvious use for a garage door is storage. You may choose to store your vehicle in your garage, boxes from a recent move, lawn equipment, holiday decor or baby clothes that you are saving for the future. Garage storage gets these items that you do not use daily out of the way but protects them from the elements.
The best use of your garage space really depends on your unique needs and interests. If you choose not to use your garage for storage, you may be thinking of other ways to utilize this space. Here are some other ideas for putting that space to good use:
1. Workshop: If you enjoy fixing things in your home, or building new things, your garage space may be ideal for your workshop. You can organize and store your tools and you can create a large workspace without taking up precious indoor space. In addition, working in your garage keeps the inside of your home clean.
2. Craft Room: If your passion is arts and crafts or painting, your garage can be perfect as a craft room. It can give you (and your kids!) a space that is all your own where you can be creative and not worry so much about the mess!
3. Additional living space: Another very popular use for the space in your garage is for additional living space. This may take an investment if you need electricity, utilities, heat and AC but if you plan to be in your home for years to come, it may be worth it. Your garage can be transformed into an extra bedroom, office or secondary living space.
4. Event space: If you are into music or movies, you can also consider turning your garage into an event space for gathering together a “garage band” or streaming movies.
