Garage Remodeling Ideas
One of the easiest ways to add more room to your home is to better utilize the space you already have. Remodeling the garage can be a cost-effective way to greatly expand your home’s living space, especially if you already park in the driveway. While many people end up storing nearly everything messily in their garage, this remodel can also help and/or encourage a little reorganization, while giving your home better, more usable space. Many people find that a garage offers the perfect environment to house their home office, studio space, or workshop. As many garages are attached or near the home, they can often be easily fitted with the same comforts as a home: heating and cooling, phone wiring, even plumbing. However, transforming your garage doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your storage area. Many garages today have become multifunctional, allowing for cars, general storage, and a home office or workshop all in the same space.
If you find you will be losing too much storage space in your garage, consider building a small storage shed in your yard to house tools, sporting equipment and seasonal items. A building separate from the house will expand your storage space, allowing you to use the garage in ways that you could not use a shed – electricity or heating, for example. In addition to remodeling your current garage space, you could also consider an addition above the garage. Raising the roof and adding a room for work space above your existing garage can give you additional space, not to mention increase the value of a home, without changing the floor plan. Increase your livable space with a new garage remodel.

There are many things you can do with a garage other than simply parking a car in it. One of the more popular alternatives is using the space as a work area. When a garage holds tools and people instead of a car, the qualities of a desirable door are different. In very cold climates like ours, the insulation becomes an issue when people will be spending long hours in the space. This goes not only for the door but for the walls and ceiling, as well. Many garages aren’t built with windows, so having some of door is another option that can really brighten up a garage workspace.
