5 Alternative Garage Uses
During the summer, most of us spend more time outside, enjoying the weather, and hopefully spending extra time with family and friends. Homeowners also use the summer to work on a few house projects they’ve been putting off on their to-do lists, like cleaning their garages or even shifting their garage space into a new (and more functional) area.
Are you looking for something else to do with your garage that isn’t parking or storage? Here at American Garage Door, we are sharing some alternative garage uses you can use for inspiration.
You can use your garage to create an incredible place to watch TV and movies with family and friends. Add a few comfy couches and chairs with a fun rug to instantly change up the feel of the garage. You may want to even think about having a projector and screen installed to create that true movie theatre feel. Watching the game will never be the same again!
Another popular garage conversion idea is a game room. Think about adding a pool table or air hockey table to play with friends. Or maybe you would like to turn it more into a “man cave” theme to give the men a place to themselves. The possibilities are endless!
During the summer, it doesn’t get better than gathering with friends for a nice BBQ. Have you thought about using your garage for additional entertainment and hosting space? Opening up the garage door allows for a refreshing summer breeze and gives you that indoor/outdoor space for your guests. It’s a great way to keep everyone cool, as well, with the shade that a garage brings. Put a few tables and chairs, maybe a fridge for drinks, and you will be well on your way to an incredible place to spend time with friends.
Kids taking over your indoor living space? Think about using the garage as a playroom for your children. Kids will love having a space to call their own and parents will love having a place where all the toys can stay — instead of being scattered around the home.
Consider a garage door screen to expand your living space without the large expense of finishing the space. This can keep kids in, bugs out, and leave room for airflow. Garage door screens work seamlessly with your current garage door, are durable, and out-of-sight when not in use.
Have you ever thought about bringing the gym closer to home? Utilizing your garage space for a home gym can be a great addition. No more commuting to the gym or dropping your kids off at daycare so you can get some exercise. Having a place to work out as convenient as your own home will get rid of any excuses, too!
