Top 10 Garage Renovation Ideas
Renovating your garage is a great way to transform a dirty, cluttered space into a highly-functional room in your house! There are many ways to renovate a garage – from the ultimate place to keep your car safe, to an entirely new living space, the options are nearly endless. Check out our list below to get some inspiration for your own garage renovation.
#1 – A Tiny Apartment
Need extra living space? A place for your grown kids to call home? Converting your unused garage into a beautiful studio apartment is a great way to add extra space to your home without building an addition. A two-car garage is the perfect size for a small but livable bachelor pad or studio apartment!
#2 – Simple Shelves & Hooks
A garage renovation doesn’t have to completely change your garage – it can simply make it more functional for you and your family. A simple renovation such as adding new flooring, painting the walls, and installing lots of shelves and hooks can quickly and easily transform your garage. The image above shows a variety of shelf sizes, hooks, and even built-in toolboxes! Perfect for any handyman or DIY enthusiast.
#3 – Kid’s Playroom
If your home lacks the extra room to add a playroom for your kids, considering converting your garage into an awesome play space just for kids! Redoing the floors, painting the walls, and adding in your kid’s favourite toys may be all it takes to create this perfect play area. Depending on where you live, you may also need to add extra insulation or a few other finishing touches to ensure your kids stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer!
#4 – Garage Mudroom
If you’ve always dreamed of having a mudroom but your home was just not designed for one, converting a small (or large!) garage into a mudroom can be a great way to finally add one to your home. It provides the perfect transition space to help keep dirt and grime out of your home, and can also be used for storage and for organizing outdoor clothing and equipment.
#5 – Ultimate Workshop
Adding some lights, a large work bench, chair, and organizational sections such as tool boxes, cabinets, and hooks can help create the ultimate garage workshop. Your workshop can be a small section or corner of the garage, so you still have space for your car or other storage needs, or it can make use of the entire garage!
#6 – Fully Equipped Dog Kennel
If you are a dog lover and are looking for ways to keep your dog safe and comfortable when you’re out of the house or can’t keep a watchful eye over them, this garage dog kennel may be the solution you’re looking for! With comfy beds, toys, and a large barrier to ensure your pets stay contained, this is a great way to keep your dogs happy and safe!
#7 – Beautiful Bedroom
