How to Design the Ultimate Garage

A garage doesn’t have to be the traditional handyman’s workshop or a room to house your car. You can turn your garage into an extension of your house based on your needs, hobbies, occupation or interests. Be innovative, but think in realistic terms according to your budget. With some research and planning, you can own the garage of your dreams.

It is the forgotten room in most homes. It is where Christmas lights hide for 11 months out of the year and where old clothes are packed away in boxes, awaiting their fate. It is where all of your unwanted memories go when you no longer have any use for them. It is your garage.

But your garage can be so much more than a place to store all of your unwanted junk. With a little imagination and some elbow grease, you can transform your garage into almost anything. This article from eHow.com explains how.

1.    Clean out your garage. It’s hard to see all the possibilities in a space that is dirty or filled with unused equipment and boxes. Have a garage sale to get rid of unwanted objects and to help fund your project. Make all repairs, such as fixing cracked floors, broken windows or unresponsive garage doors.

2.    List your needs for the garage. Think about what you want to do in your garage. The space could be used as an office, study, library, entertainment den, craft room or ultimate handyman workshop. Prepare a budget for the project. If you live in a hot or cold climate, think about the weather in the summer and winter. Make sure you have enough money to install an air conditioner or heater.

3.    Draw your garage on a piece of paper. Take measurements of every wall and door, plus the height. Indicate on your outline all immovable objects and electrical outlets.

4.    Call a real estate agent. By redesigning a garage and making it into another room, you could be depreciating your home. Find a real estate agent from a reputable company. (See Resources). The agent will know about the other houses in the area and will be able to tell you whether there would be any difference in the price of your home. You would be surprised to find that a garage in some areas can add on between $2,000 and $4,000 to the value of a home.

5.    Shop around and get the best price for remodeling and construction services. Ask friends and family members for referrals. Make a comprehensive list of all equipment, organizational furniture and appliances your garage is going to need. Many times the ultimate garage doesn’t have the top-of-the-line amenities, but offers the homeowner the very best in functionality.
