Getting the Most Out of Your Garage

Mock UP laptop, white room backgroundDo you have a garage that isn’t being used in the best way possible? If you’ve got a garage that just has a few boxes and some yard equipment, you can certainly stash these items in the basement, attic, or elsewhere to have a free space in which you can do anything–you can even paint your garage door and walls with the right equipment and know-how. The question then becomes: how best to use this space? There are a number of exciting options, including:

  • A library/office. Do you love to read? Imagine reclining on a plush chair or couch and picking out one of your favorite books to peruse in your own private library. You can get away from the noise of everyday life and go on an adventure in your imagination! Perhaps you like to work from the house—you can have your own desk and workspace out of the way so you can do your best work right at home.

  • A home movie theater. When you have your own home theater, you won’t have to wait in line or munch on stale popcorn at the movie theater—instead, you can relax in your own home and eat whatever you want while you watch a great movie in surround sound! Your friends will be begging to come over to your garage if you have your very own movie theater.

  • Meditation and relaxation room. If you love doing yoga and meditating, it can be frustrating to try to get peace of mind amidst a busy household. With the extra room you’ll have from your empty garage, you can create a serene meditation chamber where you can go to relax and be at one with tranquility! Add soft lighting, music, and a small fountain to create that authentic spa feel.

A few extra tips–you can create a warmer, more inviting atmosphere with an arrangement of stylish rugs or wall-to-wall carpeting. Additionally, you can hang paintings and other eye-catching objects, such as shelves for knick-knacks. Also, if you really want to transform your garage but don’t want to paint its interior, consider temporary wallpaper, which you can put up and take down with ease. Add a few plants that don’t rely on full sunlight, and you’ve got yourself a lovely space that you and your entire household can enjoy.
