Convert Your Garage into a Hobby Room

Monday, February 10, 2014

Go through those old boxes and eliminate anything that is no longer of value. Then, call in your interior designer to help you go over some design ideas to convert your garage into a hobby room, where you can enjoy your favorite pastime in style. Below are some design ideas to help get you started.

Turn the Garage into a Gaming Room

This is an excellent idea for the serious video gamer that really gets into the game. Do you enjoy playing during all hours of the night? Does your family complain that you’re waking them up when you get a little too excited that you made it to the next level? Having your own private gaming room in the garage would eliminate that problem.

Even in a small one-car garage, you should have plenty of room for your flat screen TV, gaming equipment and all other accessories needed to make this space both convenient and stylish. Position your gaming chair in the middle of the floor where you have the best angle viewing the screen and no one will complain. Add a refrigerator and microwave for those late night snacks and let the games begin.

Make the Garage an Exercise Room

Making an exercise room out of the garage is another great idea. If staying fit is your hobby, you can have privacy and plenty of room to set up all your equipment. Add a stereo system to play inspirational music while you work out and a television where you can watch the game while staying in shape or for watching your workout videos. It’s something the whole family can enjoy and it’ll help encourage everyone to spend a little more time each day working out.

Design an Arts and Crafts Room

Is there an artist in the family? Whether you’re a painter or enjoy building ships in a bottle, having a room to set up your art supplies and materials will help your creativity flow. Choose a design that’s fun and inspirational to help you create the right mood and to bring the inner artist to life. Put in cabinets for storage and install proper lightening based on the type of art and crafts you enjoy.

These are just a few of the options to consider when you decide to turn your garage into a hobby room. You can design everything from a room for skate boarding with ramps to a sewing room. Just use your imagination and hire a professional interior designer to help you create the perfect design. This way, she can help you convert your garage into a hobby room you can be proud to show off.
