Although it’s called a “two-car garage,” many homeowners opt to keep their cars out in the driveway to reserve this space for other purposes. If you’ve decided that your vehicles can live outside so you can turn the garage into a man cave, there are many possibilities for what you can accomplish in this space. Let’s take some time below to highlight a few of the best ways to transform your garage into a space you’ll want to return to as often as possible.
For those who don’t yet have a garage structure on their property, that’s the first hurdle to clear in this process. Carport Kingdom makes it easy to add a garage to your property without breaking the bank – and you’ll come away with a structure built to last. Experiment with our Build & Price tool today to get started on this process, and remember that we are available for help if you contact us. Start on your dream garage project today!
#1 – Build a Game Room
A two-car garage offers plenty of space to create a fun game room to enjoy with family and friends. The possibilities for what games could live inside this garage are virtually endless, but a pool table would certainly make for a nice centerpiece. Adding a dart board to a wall would be another great option, as that game takes up very little space in the room. Other ideas include a ping pong table, arcade game machine, poker table, and on and on.
#2 – Create a Sports Lounge
Rather than using a room in the house for relaxing and watching sports on TV, you might opt to use your garage for the same reason. With the addition of a couch or two, a large TV, and perhaps a bar space, you can develop an ideal lounge for watching your favorite teams. Of course, you’ll need power in your garage space to make this work, and running water would be a nice feature, if possible.
#3 – Establish a Woodshop
If you love to create things with your hands, a two-car garage is plenty of space to build a dream workshop space that will allow you to spend time on the craft you love. For this project, you’ll want to spend plenty of time thinking about using the space to ensure all of your tools will fit comfortably with enough room to walk around. Also, a woodshop needs space to store lumber, so keep that in mind while working on your layout.
#4 – Design an Office
While your office might not be where you want to spend most of your time, it is helpful to have a dedicated, comfortable office space for people working from home. Again, a two-car garage is plenty of space for such a project, as you can add a nice desk, comfortable chair, good lighting, and whatever else is needed to stay on top of your work.
#5 – Assemble a Home Gym
Do you love to work out and stay fit but hate the idea of driving to the gym day after day? Your two-car garage is ready to provide a solution to that problem. Yes, building a home gym will require some upfront investment in equipment, but that investment will pay off over the years as you can drop the monthly fee associated with your gym membership. Remember to think about the flooring in your garage if you are going to use it as a gym space, as a durable, cushioned surface will make it far more comfortable to go through your workouts.
#6 – Develop a Music Studio
For those serious about music, a dedicated studio space can feel like a dream come true. There is plenty of room in a standard two-car garage for instruments and the related accessories needed to create great tunes. Adding soundproofing to your garage can make it more suitable for music pursuits, and your neighbors will thank you.
