Alternative ways to use your garage


Originally, cars we invented as a place to park your car to make sure it is safe from all the elements and dangers of the outdoors. But these days, many people choose to park their car on their drive for various reasons, leaving their garage either unused or if is used, just as a simple storage space. You shouldn’t succumb to its usual secondary use (storage), it has the potential to be much more than that.

For high quality concrete garages and even better service, give the team at Dencroft Garages a call. Their friendly, experienced specialists will assist you in any of your garage needs whilst providing a quick, easy and fantastic service.

If you’re looking to convert your garage in to something more exciting than a storage space or a place to park your car and need help, a few suggestions can be found below.

Man cave

One of the easiest and most popular garage conversions is a man cave. A place to get away from the other half when you’ve had a disagreement, somewhere to go when your friends come round for a few drinks, and simply just a room to put your feet up and relax.

It doesn’t really need much thought; your man cave can have whatever you want in it, but the stereotype features dart board, pool tables, entertainment systems, comfy leather sofas and much more. But it all depends on what you’re using your man cave for, it doesn’t even have to be a man cave, it could be a woman cave.

Games room

This is similar to the traditional man cave, but a bit more family-friendly. Purchase things like a pool table, table football, darts board etc., not only does it mean that you can spend some quality family time together over a game of pool, but it also gives the kids a chance to go when their friends are round, rather than hogging the TV or making a racket in their room.

Home office

If you work from home and need that little bit more separation from your personal life and work life, then a home office is the perfect alternative use for you. Although you will need to insulate the space and up its security, you will certainly see the benefits.

Home gym

Many people dream of having a home gym, but don’t have the space, but have you ever considered your garage? It is better ventilated than your home if you leave the door open, and has plenty of space. More times than not, you will need to restructure the walls and floors to make sure the space maintains its quality, but it will save you money on a gym membership, travel costs and the potential embarrassment of getting sweaty in front of strangers.

Cinema room

It’s easy to get your hands on a cheap-ish projector these days, so if you and your family love TV and film, why don’t you convert your garage in to a cinema room? Purchase a few comfy sofas, a quality sound system and you’re sorted.
