A garage is more than just a space to park your car. It can be used in many ways to suit your lifestyle and interests.
From building home offices to creating storage areas, Bunnings Workshop members have shared different ways to make the most out of their garages. Check out some examples below.
1. Workshop or craft room
Transform your garage into a workshop for D.I.Y. projects or a craft room for any other hands-on hobbies. Workshop member @RatBoy included multiple workbenches and loads of tool storage while converting his garage into a workshop.
Forget high membership fees or busy gyms. A garage can provide a private and convenient space for exercising. Mark (@Remarka6le) built a home gym in his garage complete with mirror-tinted windows and wall storage.
Create a buffer zone between your outdoor and indoor spaces by converting your garage into a mud room. Get inspired by Sarah (@HousevsSarah) who turned a cluttered garage into a mud room that stores everyday items like bags and shoes.
With proper insulation and plumbing, a garage can be converted into a functional laundry. Ashlee (@ashleesellen) turned part of her unused garage into a laundry with loads of storage and feature floor tiles.
Given the rise in flexible working, a home office is a popular way to use a garage. Add comfort and functionality to your space using elements like slip-resistant rubber flooring and desks with ample workspace.
Turn your garage into an inviting and entertaining space for socialising and relaxation. While converting their garage into a Texas-style bar, member @misszara retained an old workbench to create a rustic effect.
Set up a cosy home theatre in your garage where you can relax and enjoy watching movies. Josh (@JoshC83) created a home cinema in his garage using particleboard, curtains, LED strip lights and a 120-inch projector.
