Are you looking for a way to add more usable space to your home? A new garage remodel may be the solution you are looking for. A garage may be a perfect space to remodel and repurpose, especially if it is already attached to the rest of your home. In this case, you often don’t need to do much to update the heating, cooling, wiring, or even plumbing of your garage. Repurposing your garage is a cost-effective way to expand your home’s living space and enjoy advantages that other rooms in your house may not. If you are curious about how your garage remodel could affect your home, read on.
Building a small laundry room in your ground-floor garage can help eliminate the need to go up and down your stairs with heavy laundry loads. If you previously had your laundry room located upstairs or in the basement, this increases your home value by giving future owners a choice between laundry room locations.
If you want a separate space to work out, without being distracted by other family members, your new garage may be a perfect space for a designated fitness room. Creating a fitness space in your garage can help you find room for large fitness equipment and keep sweaty scents away from the rest of the house.
Do you have active kids or pets? You can protect the rest of your home from outdoor dirt and debris tracked in by young ones by encouraging everyone to leave shoes and outdoor gear in your new mudroom. You can install a sink for easier cleanup, and install shelves and hangers for coats and boots. This remodel may be ideal for those only looking to update part of their garage, as a mudroom can just take up a corner of your garage space.
If you have a musician in your home, or perhaps a few children learning an instrument for the first time, a garage remodel may help you design the perfect practice space. You can design your new garage to be soundproof, so you don’t disturb your neighbors or other family members.
A garage remodel can turn your garage into a spacious home office that feels separate from the rest of your home. If you want to avoid distractions like laundry, dirty dishes, TVs, and more, converting your garage into a separate workspace can be an excellent way to maintain your focus and create a boundary between your work life and home life.
A Second-Floor Garage Addition
Finally, you may consider adding an addition above your garage. Raising the roof and adding an extra room above your garage can provide you with much additional space that you can use for a spare bedroom, a playroom, or an office space. This can not only provide much more livable space to your home but can increase the value of your house as well.
