Garage Conversion in Poway Homes for New Living Space
For many people, owning a home is the cornerstone of their lives. With home ownership comes a simple question – Do I have enough space? Many homeowners can’t afford enormous homes and their space is limited. This is especially true after considering children, pets, immediate family and extended family. A typical response to this problem might be “Let’s buy a bigger house” but that’s often times so expensive that it’s impractical. A cost effective (and less stressful) option is to convert an already existing room into more living space such as a bedroom, a family room, a personal gym or even a place to do laundry. An ideal area to convert is the garage.
Many homes these days come with an attached garage. If the space isn’t being utilized for another purpose – it’s waiting to be made into something more useful. An extra room added to an already full house can be a decision maker between having another child, inviting an elderly family member to come stay, or any number of guest visitations from friends or family.
A converted garage can be ideal for an elderly family member. The garage is typically somewhat removed from the house and perhaps a little quieter. This can also be true for a child returning home, from college – or just to stay a little while, and just as important for the parents that may be accustomed to a quieter atmosphere. The slight removal from the main house can also serve to add a sense of autonomy for whomever happens to be staying.
The most important part of garage conversion is the versatility. If the garage is unused it can fill any number of different roles, and just because it has been remodeled into a gym, office, or laundry room – doesn’t stop it from filling another role later.
