Making the Most of Your Square With a Garage Conversion
Thursday, September 7, 2017
Too often, homeowners make the erroneous decision to relocate when they find themselves in need of more space. It is true that family dynamics can change and make it necessary to expand the amount of space that you have. However, what many people do not realize is that there are usually options available, right on your own current property.
Ever hear the phrase “Why move when you could improve?” If you would rather renovate as opposed to relocating, it is time to start getting creative with what you already have. Too many people overlook the true potential of what they already have, such as a garage or unfinished basement.
Work with the right remodeling contractor and you could have the perfect solution for extra space, without having to sell your home and uproot your entire family. It is important to be able to at least know about the options that you have, before making a drastic decision like moving. Arm yourself with this type of invaluable data so you can make a choice as an informed homeowner and a savvy consumer.
Making Important Choices
As a Long Island property owner, you want to be able to maximize the use of your square footage. Yet, if you have a garage that is not in use, or used just for storage purposes, you are already missing out. So, before opting to move away from the place that you and your family already call home, why not consider some of the ideas for a garage conversion:
What better space to use for a family fitness space? The average household would like to be more in shape. However, finding time to get to the gym can be a task in itself. Not to mention, what household budget can keep justifying a family membership at the gym that rarely gets used? Don’t go to the gym when you can bring it to you! Weights, cardio machines, TRX systems and even yoga space are all possible in a renovated garage.
One of the chief complaints homeowners have is that they lack the space needed to house guests. What better way to give visiting friends or family a place to stay, while letting everyone retain their sense of privacy than a guest house? This is the ideal solution for housing your visitors, without sacrificing too much of your own personal space.
If you don’t want guests, you can also convert this into a rental unit. This is a great way to earn additional income, without having a stranger move into your own home. Even if you just want to have the option for a rental place for short term lodging, such as Airbnb, this makes it possible to do so.
A home bar in the basement is nice, but why not give yourself something that feels like less of a dungeon? With the right planning, you can even have an open air space so you and your guests can enjoy the view, as well as the bar. It makes for the perfect contemporary spot for adults to hang out, without the expense of going to the bar. Set the atmosphere that you like, while still entertaining friends.
