Converting your garage into an extra living space, a gym, an office, or a studio is a great way to boost the property value of your home. If you’re ready to start converting your garage in the Woodland Hills, California area, our team here at Cavalier Builders is ready to help. We offer garage conversion services throughout the area. Here are some garage conversion ideas to get your creative juices flowing.
An Extra Bedroom
Whether it’s an extra guest room or a room for a new roommate, extra living space is one of the most popular garage conversion projects. This added room can add immense value to your home. It should be noted, this can be a complicated project depending on how far you’re willing to go.
If you’re only interested in adding a bedroom, it can be as simple as adding some windows and insulation to keep the room warm in the wintertime. If you want to turn the room into a living space, complete with a kitchen and bathroom, it will require plumbing and electrical services. It is highly recommended that you seek professional assistance for plumbing and electrical installation.
A Home Gym
With the recent COVID-19 outbreak, the importance of a home gym has never been more prevalent to homeowners. Because of that, we have seen a huge uptick in the number of homeowners in the Los Angeles area who are converting their garage into a home gym. This is also one of the easiest garage conversion projects to complete.
Realistically, all you need to do is add insulation to the walls to ensure it doesn’t get too hot during the summer or too cold during the winter. You will also more than likely need to redo the flooring, however, some homeowners opt to add mats. Depending on your lighting situation, you may also need to add better lighting to the room.
Just like the home gym, the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdown have shined a light on the convenience of a home office. In recent months many homeowners have looked into adding an office to their home. Instead of building an entirely new room, you can easily convert your garage into an office space.
With a home office, one of the most important yet overlooked aspects of the process is cable management. From power cords to ethernet cables, there will be cables all over your office. If you plan on converting your garage into an office space, make plans around your cable management to ensure everything looks good.
We have helped customers throughout the Los Angeles area convert their garages into new rooms. Pictured in this post was a garage conversion we helped a client within Woodland Hills, California. Their number one goal was to make their garage a new living space.
We achieved this by adding hardwood floors, redoing the ceiling and walls, adding windows, and adding carpeting to the hallway area. We also renovated the outside of the garage to make it look more homely. Our client was satisfied with the services we provided them with!
