BEFORE: Packed with Clutter

This garage was like many others – raw, cluttered, and underutilized. When the city denied an application to expand the main residence for an office and additional living space, the homeowner’s designer suggested converting the garage.

AFTER: Midcentury Style

In addition to a work and entertaining space, a stationary metal-and-glass garage door was installed to allow maximum natural light. Other features include radiant head between the new concrete floor and commercial carpet, a wall air conditioning unit, a new sliding entrance to the rear, a large picture window, midcentury lighting, and custom cabinetry for storage and media equipment.

BEFORE: Bare and Boring

Minivans do just fine outside in the rain. Minivan passengers? Not so much.

AFTER: Playroom for Kids

These homeowners converted their garage into a playroom that can be used in any weather – and by kids of any age. The desk along the wall is perfect for arts and crafts, homework, or a parent who wants to keep an eye on what’s going on while catching up on emails.

BEFORE: Unused One-Car Garage

These homeowners loved their small home, but they wanted more living space. Thankfully, they had an unused garage that they decided to use to expand their living space.

AFTER: Cozy Living Space!

The space is now a comfortable bonus living space that offers a retreat from the rest of the home.
