4 Fun Ways to Transform Your Garage This Summer

If Your Garage is Out of Control with Stored Items, a Garage Sale Might Be the Perfect Solution

If you are like most homeowners, your garage is a place where you store tools, keep your car safe, and avoid the cold winter mornings when you head to work. However, there are many creative ways to use your garage this summer so long as your garage is well insulated. You can create an entirely new living space in this wide open area of your home.

So Many Possible Uses, So Little Time

Most people don’t think to decorate their garage or to use it as a living space. But if you think about it, it is one of the biggest open spaces in your home, perfect for all kinds of things. Here are four ways to transform this space:

  • Create a Covered Patio for “Backyard” Parties If you love having backyard parties like family reunions or BBQ parties with your friends but hate the hot sun and the chance of bad weather, your garage is the perfect patio. It’s protected from weather and can still be cool and breezy with the garage door open. You just need some comfortable chairs and you’ll have just the place to relax while watching the kids play in the driveway or yard.
  • Build Your Own Home Gym or Yoga Studio: A good cleaning, a yoga mat, and some soft meditation music are all you need to make your garage a great place to stretch and move. Why not take advantage of the largest, most open room in the home? Add an elliptical or weightlifting machine for a good workout, or even turn it into a dance studio just by playing your favorite tunes.
  • Keep the Teens Safe and Happy: Teenagers always want to hang out with friends during the summer, but you want them to stay close to home for safety. The garage is the ideal place for a compromise. They can have fun listening to their music or hanging out, and you’ll know they won’t be in unfamiliar places. They can hang out with video games if you’ve got an old TV to spare, leave the door open to skateboard, set up a game table with an old coffee table, and so much more.
  • Make Your Kids’ Birthday Comfortable and Fun: If your kid wants an outdoor birthday party, but you worry about the weather ruining the big day, try using the garage! Get some tables, decorations, and games set up in the garage, and then open the door to let in the breeze. You don’t need to worry about rain or hot weather running you out of the backyard, and you can easily enjoy everything from gifts to food in the garage.
