Do you have a birthday coming up this spring or summer? Are you looking for that singular gift for someone who has everything? Here’s a very popular idea. Convert your garage into a man-cave, she-shed, workout room, game room or home office.
Create a fun and relaxing space where your significant other can do as s/he pleases; a place to be alone or to hang out with friends. A space to retreat to watch sports on the big screen TV, play video games, exercise, or indulge in favorite hobbies.
Ready? Start planning now.
Why Convert the Garage?
Any room can be transformed, but because garages are so darn ugly, these are logical spaces to convert. The dirty, stained and cracked concrete, characteristic of most garages, makes them spaces few people want to spend time. But by transforming your garage into a comfortable, warm and inviting room, you’ll be increasing your home’s livable space and increasing your home’s equity at the same time. A two-fer!
Step 1: Start with the Floor
Installation of epoxy flooring is the first step in turning your garage into a true extension of the home. You may remember the old gray epoxy that was standard fare back in the day. Well, epoxy flooring has come a long way. Now there’s an unlimited selection of epoxy coating styles and colors to choose from.
Step 2: Choosing Your Flooring System
Although the classic, solid color coating systems are still available, there’s so much more out there. One of the most popular is “chipped” epoxy flooring systems. Thermoplastic PVA or mineral mica “chips” are broadcast into the epoxy to provide added color and contrast. The result is a uniquely textured, visually stunning and super durable floor. Check out these examples (Bagari SE and Vintage Mica).
One of the hot new trends in decorative flooring is metallic coatings. This sophisticated interior epoxy flooring provides a flowing, 3-D high-gloss, marbled look with iridescent accents. It’s available in a variety of colors and effects. This flooring is striking and inimitable, possessing a flowing, “glass-like” quality. No two floors ever look the same. Check out some examples here (Liquid Art and Liquid Minerals).
Once you’ve selected your style and color, installation of the epoxy flooring will only take a few days.
Step 3: Decorate
Once installation of the epoxy flooring is complete, you can choose to add inexpensive drywall, paint, lighting or heating to fine tune the space. But that’s really not necessary. The new flooring with a little furniture…a comfortable sofa, a hammock or a lounge chair, and maybe a wall-mounted TV…is all it takes.
Whether it’s a man cave, she-shed, workout room, game room or home office, your garage has unlimited potential as an extra room.
