Gardens are a hot topic right now as we lurch through the British summer. If you’re not tending to your own, you might be starting to plan some planting or possibly even thinking about hosting a garden party. Last week I wrote about the She Shed, which was well received and it seems that ladies all over are keen to embrace their shed and make it their own. It got me thinking about larger garden storage areas like a garage.
If you’re lucky enough to own one, I wonder if you use it for your car? I don’t have one, but I’ve known many people who do, yet don’t use it for its intended purpose. So of course, I had a little browse on Pinterest, as you do, to see what great things people are getting up to with their garage. And I was pleasantly surprised.
Convert it into Another Room:
I’ve seen friends do this before and it’s a great way to get an extra downstairs room without building an extension. Of course it works best with integral garages. In a previous house, part of our integral garage was converted into an office which was incredibly handy. You could still fit a small car into the garage too, which was a bonus.
Well it doesn’t necessarily have to be for your granny, but creating a self-contained little studio unit could be just what you need for visiting family, for the teenagers, or as a work studio for you.
Oh how I’d love a space like this. To be honest I wouldn’t need anything this large, but just to have a space where I could take shots for the blog would really make a difference to how I work. If you’re a more professional photographer then I’m sure this space would be invaluable.
Turn your garage into a space that inspires your creativity. It could be a photographic studio, a crafting room or a space to make blog posts come to life. However you’d like to use your creativity, think about how a boring, redundant garage space could be put to use.
Alternatively, if you want to buy a new garage, for your car of for something more inventive, do check out the wooden garage range at Quick Garden before you buy.
