These days, more and more homeowners are investing in giving their garages a look and feel like a garage never knew before. Once a place to put your car, (or random stuff you’re not sure what to do with), garages can be the key to expanding your passions, whatever they are.
Research shows that some garages are being converted to house some of the following:
- Recording studio/rehearsal space
- Home crafting or art studio
- Extra bedroom
- Man cave
Whatever the theme there are many options to look at when converting the garage to living space. Some examples include: flooring, cabinets, storage, doors, screens and heating systems, just to name a few.
Epoxy floor coverings are a great choice when converting a garage to living space. Epoxy flooring is the perfect flooring to stand up to the South Dakota climate and lifestyle. Epoxy flooring options are elegant and appealing; they not only look great, but are extremely durable, heat and chemical resistant, easy to clean and environmentally safe. Your floor will look great for many years with low maintenance.
If you are considering epoxy flooring make sure to use an expert installer. Installation is important. Look for a company with great warranties, as well as installers with many years of experience and knowledge in application.
Garage screens are growing in popularity among homeowners. Converting the garage to an airy, pest-free space is a snap and just takes seconds. The best screens are a spring loaded, - fully retractable system that works in conjunction with your existing garage door. When you are done enjoying the great outdoors, simply retract a screen and put your garage door down as usual. It’s that easy! Garage screen doors are designed to keep bugs out of the garage while allowing air to circulate during summertime weather. Garage screen doors can be custom designed to perfectly fit any size garage door. When choosing a brand, make sure to inquire about warranties. Some carry a lifetime warranty with the manufacturer! There are several options and styles to choose from to truly meet your wants and needs. Again, it’s important to work with an expert that has many years of experience in screen door design and installation.
When choosing who you entrust your project to, testimonials and reviews are important. Review the company’s history, knowledge and experience of product, and customer service. Photos of the installer’s completed projects offer great ideas and inspiration if you’re not quite sure what you’re wanting but know you want to start somewhere.
In a garage conversion, the possibilities are endless!
