Home gyms, offices, workshops and storage areas are just some of the functions garages now have. Another use for your garage however could be extra living space for your family. With the average house size getting smaller, converting garages into rooms that the family can relax in is becoming increasingly common.

1. Choose colours carefully

The colours you choose for the interior of the room will set the tone for the space. Neutral shades such as cream and white will create a calming effect, brighter colours will result in a more playful atmosphere. Feature pieces such as tables or accessories like cushions and rugs can help add splashes or colour and excitement to the room if you opt for plain walls but want some bright patches too.

2. Incorporate storage space into the design

Chances are, you’ll need to still store some items in the garage, even when the room has been transformed. As well as floor to ceiling shelving providing handy storage for items such as books, toys can be stored in wicker baskets or even in furniture, such as storage pouffes, itself.

3. Select functional furniture

In addition to choosing furniture that can double up as storage, think carefully about the pieces you need. For example is it just a room to relax in with your family, or is it going to be used for eating in too? Avoid unnecessary items that will make the place look cluttered or get in the way of family games that may be played in there.
