Home Gym 

According to studies, around 75% of individuals around the world have tried working out at home during the lockdown. Around 66% of these individuals prefer their home gym. Furthermore, there has also been a rise in online fitness resources and classes. This makes it a lot easier to work out without leaving your house.  

Because of this, you should consider converting your garage into a home gym. With this, you can create a workout space that is tailored to your needs. You can also save a lot of money in the long run by saving on gym fees every month.  

Additional Bedroom 

Aside from extending your living space, adding a bedroom by converting your garage can also add additional value to your property.  

If your garage is not attached to your house, you can transform it into a separate guest suite filled with an ensuite for when visitors stay over.  

Kids’ Playroom 

During the pandemic, most schools closed their doors. Because of this, a lot of kids have stopped doing their usual sports and social activities. In addition to that, a lot of families also have a hard time clamoring for space and getting under each other’s feet.  

If this is your case, consider converting your garage into a children’s playroom. This offers your kids the much-needed space of their own to play in and relax. In addition to that, this also helps you prevent having toys scattered around your living room.  

Home Office 

According to reports in April 2020, around 45% of people in employment worked from home. The reason for this is the pandemic.  

A lot of these employees found themselves commandeering the dining table or taking over other rooms.  

As a result of the pandemic, attitudes towards working from home have greatly changed. Though it does not suit every person, it has resulted in a lot of employers moving towards flexible working.  

Your garage provides the best space for creating a professional work environment.  

Kitchen Extension 

For those who don’t know, the heart of your home is your kitchen. It’s sometimes the most utilized room in the house. Attached garages offer the best space for extending the kitchen to have more space.  

Do you want to create an open-plan kitchen diner? Do you like to add a utility room? These things can easily add a lot of value to your property. This depends on which region you live in.
