Is your garage damp, leaky and full of junk items that you have not bothered to throw away? Why waste all that garage space? If your garage was watertight you could convert it into a useful space for you and your family. By replacing your old garage roof with good quality roofing materials you could create a really useful extra room while at the same time increase the attractiveness of your property for when the time comes to sell and move on. Below are a few ideas for people who may want to tailor that extra garage space in line with their own unique personalities.
Many people love making things which is why all types of crafting is very popular in the UK. Sewing, knitting, dressmaking, embroidery, paper crafts are some of the most popular at the moment. Why not convert all/part of your garage into a hobby/craft room. This can give you an extra space for you to enjoy your hobby in peace and have somewhere safe for your materials and latest unfinished projects to lie undisturbed until you have time to go back to work on them again.
Unused garage space can be a blessing for the person that likes to build and tinker with tools. The neglected area in the garage can be converted into a workshop, which is perfect for someone that enjoys DIY. All the essential tools can be stored in the garage and projects can be developed in an appropriate environment. The garage space is a perfect area for a creative person to work on their ideas e.g. wood work, metal work, building cars or even inventing the next scientific invention that is set to change the world.
You may agree that a garage is an ideal place to store cold drinks, but why stop there when the whole garage space could be converted into your own bar? Just think about it, stock the fridge with your favourite beverages and enjoy the company of friends without having to worry about missing the last train. You can have a nice flat screen TV on your wall and the sport enthusiasts can enjoy the latest big football match or cheer on Andy Murray in the next tennis Grand Slam.
Extra garage space can also be converted into a home office, which is ideal for people who need a quiet space away from the main living room where the TV is likely a noisy distraction for many. Having an area just dedicated to a work space will no doubt help the productivity of people who need their own area for concentration. A home office space can be used for many different types of people such as, the small business owner, a freelancer or even a person that just needs a study to undertake their tasks

For some people a garage is just somewhere to store your car, garden equipment and stuff that doesn’t fit in your house. This is a real shame because with a bit of love and attention a garage can be so much more. If your garage is in good condition with a secure, watertight garage roof then it can easily be made to work a bit harder for you this summer.
Get ready for the beach
Creating a gym in your garage is the perfect way to save money on expensive gym memberships as well as the time spent travelling there and back. It doesn’t have to cost the earth, a few basic pieces of equipment - exercise bike, free weights, treadmill or rowing machine - and you are good to go. You can always add to your equipment later, as you learn what type of exercise works best for you. This is what one of our clients did to their garage (see photo below).
Keep the drinks cool
Hopefully we will have some good weather this summer and plenty of opportunities to invite friends and family over for a barbeque or two. However, running out of space in the fridge for cold drinks is a common problem. Why not buy a spare fridge and keep it in the garage. You will be able to use it all year round, particularly during Christmas and New Year where there is never enough space for the mountain of food and drink that we need over the festive period.
