A dedicated lounge space on your property where you can relax and spend time with family and friends is a wonderful luxury. In a world that only seems to get busier and busier, a lounge is a great place to unwind, let your stress go, and enjoy some of the things you love the most.
Unfortunately, it’s hard for many people to find this kind of peace inside the house. In your house, you are never far away from something that needs to be done – there are a few dishes in the sink or a pile of laundry in the corner, for example. By turning a garage space into a lounge, you can escape from those ongoing pressures for a moment so you can breathe and feel free.
This article will look at a few ideas for developing a beautiful custom garage lounge. Of course, you’ll need to build a custom garage to bring this project to life, and that’s where Carport Kingdom enters the picture. Through the use of our Build & Price tool, you can create a custom design and get a free quote.

#1 – A Sports Lounge
Building a sports lounge in your custom garage makes a lot of sense if you are one of the millions of people who enjoy watching live sports with your family and friends. You’ll be able to decorate the space with memorabilia and colors from your favorite team, and a large TV can serve as the focal point. When this project is finished, you’ll have a gathering point that will be everyone’s favorite spot to catch each big game.
#2 – A Gaming Lounge
For this idea, you could take the concept of “gaming” in a few different directions. For some, those games would be physical, like billiards or darts. For others, adding a poker table in the middle of the garage lounge would create the ideal space to play with friends and spend long evenings into the night. Yet another idea for a gaming lounge would be to create a high-tech space where video game systems could be hooked up and used for an exciting competition.
#3 – An Old-School Bar
Are you finding it harder and harder to locate a great traditional bar where you live? If you and your friends are becoming less and less interested in the types of bars available today, it might be a winning plan to just build your own private space. Comfortable stools, some basic decorations, and dim lighting might be all it takes to craft an environment where you’ll love to spend time and share stories.
#4 – A Foodie Space
One of the best ways to enjoy time in your lounge is by snacking on some of your favorite foods. Whether you like to prepare the food yourself, or you prefer to order it from a local establishment, you could choose to design your new garage lounge around the idea of embracing food culture. This theme could inform your design decisions and could also lead you to place a large table in the middle of the space for many people to gather around and dig in.
#5 – Embrace a Diner Theme
We mentioned above that traditional bars are becoming harder and harder to find in many places. Not only is that true, but the same is happening to diners. Sitting down for a comforting meal in an authentic diner is a great pleasure, but they are fewer and further between than ever before. Again, this is a chance for you to embrace the tradition of this type of space and make one of your own. Diner interiors were intentionally affordable, to match the style of food that such establishments served, so you could copy that style and create something that is big on nostalgia. Also, many diners tried to tie in their local area to the design of the space, so that’s another notion that you could copy into your own version.
