Whether you own a vehicle or not, the garage is a valuable space that can benefit you and your home massively. You may not have a car or simply prefer parking it on the drive, what is your garage being used for? If you don’t have an answer, it is highly recommended that you change that immediately – give your garage a new purpose.
With a bit of effort, you could add significant value as well as turning out to be a stylish addition to your home. But if you don’t have a concrete garage to convert in the first place, look no further than Dencroft Garages. Their experienced team will be happy to help you in any if your garage needs.
Does a garage conversion appeal to you? If you love the sound of it but are unsure on what to convert it to, here are a few options.
Particularly if you lead a busy life, going to the gym is at the bottom of your priorities due to many reasons: using equipment after other sweaty people, being hot and uncomfortable surrounded by strangers and even the journey itself to the gym – but all of this can be avoided by converting your garage into a home gym.
Invest in some form of a cardiovascular machine (exercise bike, treadmill etc.), some weights and a punchbag. Don’t go overboard though – there is no point in buying a lot of expensive equipment. All you need is for it to be a comfortable beneficial environment for you to do your workout.
These days, any Tom, Dick or Harry can go in to a store such as Argos to purchase a projector, making it easier than ever to turn your concrete garage in to a cinema room for you and the family. Purchase a few chairs or a sofa, a mini fridge, blankets and snacks to make it a real comfort zone – a place to chill out and relax after a long, hard day.
Bump up the comfort levels by investing in insulation and adding heating. It’s all based on your budget and priorities – you may much rather have a better sound system or sofa.
Go on eBay, find a cheap pool table/table football/ping pong table, buy an incredibly comfortable leather chair, a mini bar and a whole load of alcohol – THERE, you have your very own man cave available to you 24/7.
If a man cave sounds like your ideal conversion option but would like more detail, here are a handful of ideas to things you could potentially put in your man cave.
If you opt to convert your garage in to a home office, there is a lot more thought that needs to go in to the process. It’s not just a case of flinging a desk, books and a few lamps in there – you need to insulate properly and make sure it has maximum security possible, especially if there are valuable items in there.
