If you have an unfinished garage that you don’t usually use for your vehicle, you’re missing out on a huge part of your home’s potential. The garage is one of the most underrated and underappreciated rooms in the house. That’s because, more often than not, the garage is completely unfinished and turns into a storage room. And, it’s not even a good storage room if it’s unfinished. The lack of seal from the outside allows for bugs, moisture, and temperature damage to anything stored inside. So, Premier Group Contractors suggests you convert your unfinished garage into a space that’s worth a lot more.
The first question that’s probably popped into your head is, “What can I do with an unfinished garage?” The answer? Just about anything! Here are some rooms you can convert your unfinished garage into.
While garage bands, historically, involve shoving whatever instruments you’re using into the existing garage space, why not take it a step further? You can turn your garage into a finished studio. It can be any kind of studio you want.
- A music studio will give you the space necessary to set up drums, guitar stands, sound equipment, and more. If you’re a musician with a lack of space, this might be the perfect solution.
Turning a garage into a music studio can be done easily. Clearing out the garage, putting in insulation and drywall, and adding appropriate lighting is all there is to it. Turn the blank walls into a gallery for your favorite artwork, records, and band merch or paint them over. It’s all up to you.
- A paint studio is a fantastic choice for your garage. By finishing the garage and sealing any cracks that might let in moisture or bugs, you’ve got a large room of the same quality as interior bedrooms.
The big difference is, in a garage studio, you can open up the garage door and let in a little bit of nature when you’re feeling it. Enjoy the fresh air and take some inspiration from the sunset right outside.
- A darkroom for your photography is also completely possible by renovating your garage. Use the abundance of space to set up for the development process. There’s plenty of room for hanging up photos to dry. Plus, there’s plenty of wall space for your favorite photos to be displayed.
Those who work from home or have space-intensive hobbies aren’t the only people who can use a finished garage. For those of us who love hosting friends, the garage can be turned into a really stellar lounge.
Place some couches and other seating, a bar space, a coffee table, and any other hosting furnishings you can think of. When your friends come over, you’ll have somewhere less formal to retreat to. Plus, as always, theres the wonderful perk of being able to open the garage door. This makes a lounge the ideal use for the garage if you live somewhere that gets nice and warm for part of the year. Letting in the summer sun while you and your friends crack open a beer just can’t be beat.
That’s not all though. You can also convert the garage into a pretty fantastic bedroom. Whether you’re looking for an upgrade to your current master bedroom or you’re looking to make room for kids, the garage is there for you.
