How to Use Your Garage for Creative Hobbies
From CEO’s to school teachers to musicians to artists, people are realizing the need to make more use out of the space they have available to them. This doesn’t only mean adding extra closet organizers –for many it means remodeling the entire garage.
There are plenty of reasons to remodel your garage. When space is limited in the house, remodeling your garage can be the incentive you need to take your favorite hobbies more seriously. And really –who has enough space in their house for an entire art studio, gym, or game room?
Below are creative ways people have made use out of the most underrated part of their home.
Garage as art studio
Have a passion for the arts? Why not turn your garage into an art studio? The garage can be a great alternative to renting out an extra studio space. It’s affordable and you can keep it to yourself without having to share it with a bunch of other artists.
If you’re considering turning your pre built garage into an art studio, there are a few things you will need to consider.
Plenty of light.
You’re going to need plenty of light in your garage to make an indoor art studio a reality. This can be done either by opening up your garage door or by adding windows. Adding more window light is probably the best option to avoid making things uncomfortable during the changing seasons.
If a permanent art studio is what you are after, why not deck it out with your favorite drawers and shelves? You’ll need plenty of storage for your painting supplies. You can also think about adding more than one art station. That way you can have friends over, host painting classes, and even get your kids in on the fun!
Gym memberships can be expensive, and with a busy work schedule, it can be hard to find the time away from family to get the workout you need.
The answer? Ever considered investing in a home gym? This can be a great option for dye-hard gym rats everywhere. Sure, buying all the equipment you see at your local gym can be expensive, but there are plenty of ways to start your own home gym on a budget, and save yourself some extra cash in the long run, too.
So this creative garage remodelling idea can take a bit of work, but if you are passionate about gardening, why not convert your garage into a greenhouse?
Sure, a lot goes into planning a greenhouse –from materials you use for your windows to watering systems. But how rewarding would it be to visit your indoor garden whenever you choose, and keep your vegetable and fruit plants growing longer every year?
These are just a few of the many creative ways people are making better use out of their garage. And really, with so much more space made available from your garage, why not put a lot of thought into how you want to take advantage of it?
