In our last blog we told you how to salvage scrap metal from your cluttered garage, so now that you have a freshly cleaned garage, it’s time to explore how you can turn it into an extension of your existing living space. Read on for four fun garage conversion ideas.
Games or entertainment room
If you’re big on entertaining or simply don’t have enough space inside your home for a dedicated play area, your now scrap metal free garage is the perfect location for an added games room. If you’re going for a kid friendly space, fit out your garage with comfy bean bags, board games, fun toys and brightly coloured fixtures and décor. For a more grown-up entertaining area, a bar, good sound system, comfy seating and maybe even a pool table are great inclusions.
If you regularly work from home and want to minimise your distractions, a dedicated home office is a fantastic solution. By converting your empty garage into a home office (complete with a bookshelf, a spacious desk, ergonomic furnishings and bright lighting), you will be able to better concentrate on your work out without interference.
Whether you frequently have guests come to stay, or are interested in making some extra money from boarders or holiday makers, your unused garage is a great space to convert into a guest house. Assuming you want your guest house to be self-contained, you’ll have to invest a bit more money in things like plumbing, insulation and other heating and cooling, soundproofing, proper ventilation and more. If you end up installing kitchen or bathroom facilities, be sure to keep any scrap metal leftover from the installation and trade it in for cash with your local scrap metal buyer.
We hope these ideas have inspired you to transform your unused garage into an exciting new living space. If at any time throughout the garage conversion process you come across unwanted scrap metal, or are left with excess steel, corrugated iron, or other metal from renovations, be sure to get cash for scrap from your local scrap metal dealer.
