11 Inspiring Garage Conversions

Want to add on without adding on? Converting your garage to living space may be the answer. And see how folks are reinventing living rooms, too.

Home Brewed

Where do some of the country’s best micro breweries get their start? Usually as home brews in a converted garage (the federal government allows up to 200 gallons of home brew in households with two or more people). This little brewery features pub comforts with a bar, TV, and even a stained concrete floor. To guard against unwanted temperature changes, you’ll want to insulate your garage door.

Bright Ideas

Having plenty of light was a primary importance when converting this garage to an art studio. The owners added several skylights and included banks of fluorescent light fixtures under the ceiling soffits. Painting walls and ceilings a crisp white helps keep the interiors bright and creative.

Greenhouse Garage

Sometimes a garage is just a garage — and a greenhouse. A complete redo of a detached garage included a new three-car structure connected to the main house via an airy greenhouse. The new garage was carefully designed to comply with historic precedents of this St. Louis-area neighborhood.

Garage Living

With no space for an addition in this urban setting, the homeowners decided to convert their garage to create a handsome living room. On the opposite side — facing the street — a pair of faux outswing garage doors satisfy local historic requirements by preserving the original look of the facade.

Drive-In Movies

A custom cabinet with now-you-see-it, now-you-don’t sliding barn-style doors houses a full-on home theater system that helped turn this garage into a combo playroom and in-house movie palace. The garage doors still open for that fresh-air, drive-in movie ambience. A heating system and carpeted floors keep the media room cozy all year.

All-in-One

This fetching guest cottage has it all — even a garage. Simple structures such as this one are good ways to begin developing a property. You can live small as you gather the economic steam to build a larger main house. Just be sure your municipality or HOA allows multiple dwellings on your lot.
