Alternative Uses for Your Garage Space

A garage space that has been converted into a family game room.

 These days, cars are less prone to rusting. Therefore, the conventional use of garages has become much less common among homeowners – opening up the space for other activities. Modern garages are actually surprisingly robust, suitable for a wide variety of different uses. In this blog, we will be talking about the different uses you can use your garage for and how different doors will be suited to these uses.


Alternative Uses You Should Consider

Here are some different ways you can make the most out of your garage space now that the car can live comfortably outside:

  • Games room – Creating your own games room in your garage will keep noise and mess out of your home. Adding a pool table and a dart board is one way to start your game room and by adding sofas, a fridge and a TV to your garage you may never need to enter your actual house.
  • Home office – If you frequently work from home and don’t want to keep being distracted, turn your garage into a home office. A desk, a computer and the other essentials for your work will complete the transformation.
  • Home cinema – Due to their open design, large garages are the perfect place to house a home cinema. If your family loves film and you have the budget, install a projector and surround sound speakers.
  • Gym – If you are a fitness bunny and fancy saving yourself time and money, convert your garage space to a home gym. Add your chosen equipment, a few mats and the suitable storage for your gym essentials and you have your very own space to exercise in without the intimidating atmosphere of a public gym.  


The Right Door for Your Pastimes 

Here are some of the things you should consider when choosing the appropriate doors for your space:

  • Access to your garage – If people are going to be coming and going from your garage often, choose doors that will allow easy access. Manual garage doors will quickly become annoying to continually manhandle open – opt for automation.
  • Space available – Choose a door that makes the most of the space you have available. We have a range of space saving doors that will leave plenty of room for your hobbies.
  • Conditions in your garage – Our sectional garage doors are built with 42mm thick insulated panels, improving the heat retention in your property.
