Breathe New Life into Your Garage Creative Ideas for Turning It into a Stylish Living Space

 

Who says your garage has to store a vehicle? If you’re fine with parking your car on the driveway, a garage can be whatever you want it to be. One of the most popular garage conversions? Turning it into a bright and funky new living space!

Turning your garage into a living space is actually a lot easier than you may think. Just follow these creative ideas for living space conversions, brought to you by the experts at The Garage Door Guys.

Choosing the perfect garage door

There’s usually one place we start when converting a garage into a living space: the garage door. It’s important to choose the right garage door for a living space conversion – considering it’s pretty much 25% of the room itself.

The best garage door for a living space conversion is an insulated garage door. Featuring thick insulation, these doors keep your garage’s temperature more consistent, preventing outside air from entering the home and keeping your new living space more comfortable.

The Garage Door Guys have a range of insulated garage doors which are ideal for living spaces. Just ask the team or head into our Totness showroom to check out our full range.

Installing a HVAC unit

Adelaide’s weather is extreme. Scorching summers and chilly winters make it hard to be comfortable in a space without heating and cooling. Installing a HVAC unit in your garage is a must if you’re turning it into a living space. Not only will this keep everybody happy, but it also adds value to your home.

Adding a kitchenette and bathroom

Want to go that extra mile and really turn your garage into something special? Adding a kitchenette and bathroom has several perks. Firstly, your garage becomes more than a simple living space, and actually becomes its own self-contained unit, which is perfect if you’ve got kids in their teens. But it also gives you the option to monetise the space, listing it on Airbnb or Booking.com. This is a fantastic way to make extra cash, simply by hosting people in your garage.

Polished concrete

Unpolished concrete isn’t the most inviting flooring for a living space. Polished concrete, on the other hand? Massive game-changer. Polished concrete is a long-lasting and affordable way to turn a dull garage into a vibrant new living space.
