Have you recently acquired a home but you’re not satisfied with some of the rooms? Do you have a decent-sized indoor garage space that you do not have a use for?
Some home owners do not have vehicles; that’s why they feel like their garage space is just put to waste. Others try to find ways to make use of their garage and they often make it into a storage unit or a mock room for when friends of their children would come over. But, the question is, are you effectively making use of that garage space or that extra room especially when you could have been making an income out of it?
Admittedly, turning a garage or an extra room into something different is a difficult task since there is a lot to consider such as the plumbing and the flooring; that’s why you need professionals to do the job properly. At Chartwell Construction, we offer various solutions on what to transform your garage or that extra room in to, for that additional space that you need or for that leisure room that you’ve been dreaming of!
Here are some ideas on what you can turn your garage or that extra room into!
Room for Rent
If you have an unused room and you have no plans for its future use, it might be best to transform it into a bedroom and rent it out to locals and tourists alike! But before doing so, make sure to repair broken or damaged furniture like bed frames as well as broken windows and creaking doors. When everything is done, you can now list your room in sites such as Airbnb, or you can look for professional agents that can lease your place if you are planning long-term. Renting an extra room is always an excellent way to earn additional income, especially during the summer where tourists are back and before the start of the school year where students are looking for potential housing.
Home Office | Personal Library
A home office is ideal for small business owners who find it expensive to rent office space for their business. If you only need a sturdy desk, a computer and some filing cabinets for your documents, you can also add in a personal library to properly make use of that space. Add in the carpet flooring for that sound insulation so that you can focus on your work even though you are at home. Have the bookshelves line the walls so that you’ll have space for your desk as well as for other office furniture if you’ll be working with some team members or if you’ll have guests.
Transforming a garage into a workshop might be one of the simplest ways to make use of the room since this requires minimal change to space, especially if it will be for a small wood workshop. Having a professional builder look over the area is still necessary especially if you want to change the flooring and add doors and windows to get the perfect ventilation for the tedious work that goes into a wood workshop.
Another smart use of a garage is converting it into a personal gym – be it with large exercise machines or just having a freestyle space with small workout tools. In transforming this space, you’ll still be needing the help of the professionals to change the flooring and add the appropriate materials that can withstand the weight of the machines as well as the high-traffic activity in the area. Proper support beams will also be needed if you wish to hang exercise tools on the ceilings and the walls.
Art Room | Music Room
If you have children and they are into arts, it’s best to create an art room or a music room where they can hone their talents and discover themselves. If you want a music room, have professionals install carpet flooring and sound-proof the walls to lessen sound from travelling all over your house. This way, your children can practice all they want! On the opposite hand, if you wish to have an art room, make sure to have the appropriate paint-proof flooring and walls so that you won’t have to worry about cleaning up every after art activity.
Man Cave | Game Room | Movie Room
All men dream of having their man cave! If you have that extra space in your home, make use of it by transforming it into a man cave where you can set up a home theatre as well as add gaming systems or gaming accessories such as a billiards table or a table tennis game set. Having a professional look over your space before adding in all your desired gaming accessories is a smart choice especially if you want to have the correct flooring that can insulate the space well and can withstand the heavy activity in the area.
