When the state of California passed Senate Bill 1069, many homeowners began looking into the possibility of converting their garage into living space. An experienced renovation contractor can help make your garage conversion idea a reality. If you are looking for Los Angeles Garage Conversions, look no further than Cavalier Builders.
4 Garage Conversion Ideas
There has never been a better time to convert your garage into a more functional living space. The coronavirus has changed the way we live our lives and forced us into our homes. Homeowners have since become aware of the need to make their houses as functional as possible. Here are four ways you can convert your garage into a space that is useful and enjoyable for you and your family:
1. Home Office
The Covid-19 pandemic changed the way Americans, and the world, conduct their business. For many American workers, working from home was a temporary solution to stop the spread of the virus but became a permanent arrangement. If you work from home, you need a quiet and private space to work efficiently.
Your home office may also double as your child’s new classroom. Many schools now offer virtual learning options, but your child may have difficulty concentrating at home. A designated workspace for your child can improve focus and productivity. Cavalier Builders can convert your Los Angeles garage into a functional home office space you’ll love.
2. Guest Suite
The pandemic changed the way we work, but it also changed how we travel as people choose to avoid airplanes and hotel rooms. Tropical beach vacations have been replaced with road trips to visit family and friends. For that reason, you should have a space in your home where guests feel welcome and comfortable. Convert your garage into a guest suite that your loved ones will enjoy visiting.
3. Short Term Rental
Converting your garage will add to your home’s square footage and therefore increase property value and the resale price. But why wait until you sell your home to reap the monetary benefits of converting your space? You can renovate your garage to become a rental space that will increase your monthly income stream.
4. Home Gym
In these crazy times, physical fitness has never been more important. It is a way to stay healthy and relieve stress. Many fitness centers have had to shutter their doors, and with kids at home virtual learning, it’s difficult to get out to your workout class. Converting your garage into your own personal fitness center will give you the opportunity to stay active and healthy from the comfort of your own home.
The Benefit of Hiring a Contractor
An experienced contractor can make your garage conversion project a success with their wealth of knowledge. There are many things to consider before taking on such a big project, such as:
- The permit process
- Electrical wiring
- Heating and air conditioning
- Proper plumbing
