Do you love your home but wish you had just a little more room to live in? This is one of the most common problems we encounter as general contractors at The Construction Group. A homeowner will end up falling in love with a neighborhood or a home they love with perfectly dreamy architecture, but there just isn’t quite enough space for everyone to live and play.

For homeowners shy on space, a garage remodel can offer a simple, functional solution to their problem. When you think of finished garage rooms, you may be surprised to learn just how many possibilities there truly are for creating an attractive but useful living space. Check out these great ideas for creating a finished living space from your garage.

1.   Style is Key

To get the most out of your garage add-on, it’s important to think of it just as you would any other room in your house rather than as simply a finished garage. Think about the kinds of style details you want for the rest of your home and discuss ways to blend your garage room seamlessly with details throughout your home.

Whether your home embraces a farmhouse or minimalist aesthetic, be sure to incorporate the look into your garage. Consider updating the paint and trim throughout the rest of your home at the same time.

2.   Don’t Forget Function

Consider your plans for your new garage room as you’re designing it. Do you plan to use it as a bedroom for a teenager? Are you planning to keep your home office in this space?

Work with a general contractor who won’t get hung up on conventional thinking when it comes to innovative remodeling ideas. For example, we can create a focal point using custom built-in shelving or storage that also serves as a home entertainment center. Or brighten up a playroom with a cozy window nook.

3.   Consider an Expansion

For a little extra room, we can add on a micro-addition to give your garage room a few more useful square feet. We can also add an outside deck for a little added privacy, which can be especially useful if you plan to use your garage room as guest quarters.
