A garage is known for storing motor vehicles. It’s also used for keeping the extra freezer, gardening tools, sporting equipment and other things. But just because a garage is known for this doesn’t mean it has to actually be used for that purpose. Some garages have been adapted into playrooms, media rooms or in-law suites. But what other ways can you transform your garage into a more vibrant and livable space. Here are two great makeover designs for your Rockwall TX new home.
Home Fitness Room
Converting your garage into a home gym can save you money and time. Not only will your gym be located in the confines of your own home, but you won’t have to worry about gym fees let alone waiting to use the equipment. Figure out what type of equipment you’d like to put into your home gym. From there you’ll be away to designate workout areas. A treadmill, elliptical, bicycle, punching bag, free weights, weight bench, yoga mats and rock climbing wall are great items for your home gym. Equipment that requires electricity should be placed near electrical outlets. For décor, photos of your favorite sports or sports figures to the walls. Shades of blue, green or yellow are great colors to keep you pumped up while working out. Don’t forget the one-way standing mirror or wall mirror, workout towels and optional water cooler. Install a ceiling fan to keep you cool and add a TV to keep you engaged when running or walking on the treadmill to round out the gym feel at your Rockwall TX new home.
In a world of extreme couponing or for those who like to buy in bulk, you may be looking for extra storage space. With a walk-in pantry, you’ll have a place for all the laundry detergent, paper products, wine and dry foods (canned, bottled or packaged). You can add built-in shelves, cabinetry and pull-out drawers. In addition to the built-in storage, an old TV armoire can work as a pantry cupboard. Recessed lighting and motion sensors can really work well in this remodeled room. Wallpaper will look great on the walls or paint it green since that’s the color of a lot of veggies. Add recipes and photos of food to the walls for added style.
Renovating your ordinary garage into an elegant area can add space and value to your home. Some of our floor plans even come with an extra 1 car garage, making a makeover easier. Consult with our creative consultants to makeover your new homes in Rockwall TX garage.
