Research different garage ideas, including various layouts and organization solutions, so that you address all of your storage needs. If you don’t need a repository for your accumulations and instead require more living space, check out garage conversion ideas and consider transforming this area into a hobby room, gym or extra bedroom.
How do I organize my garage?
This is a space that can easily get overwhelmed by clutter, so plan for a functional garage makeover that has a layout optimized for heavy storage. When browsing garage ideas, think simplicity — one of the easiest ways to keep this area neat is by putting in shelving units and built-ins that allow you to carefully arrange your items so they're easy to find and put away. To achieve ultimate organization in your garage remodel, add cabinets along the walls, a built-in workbench for ample counter space and wall hooks for hanging brooms, shovels and other tools. Stash pricier pieces in a locked box, and use wall-mounted racks to keep bikes out of the way. When it comes to garage designs, think about your ceiling too; many manufacturers make overhead ceiling racks for seasonal and infrequently used items.
What other garage designs can I implement?
A dream garage doesn’t have to be a storehouse — there are plenty more garage design ideas to choose from. If you need more living space versus storage, you can always opt for a garage conversion and create an extra room. Garages are versatile spaces and with some smart paint selections and decor choices, it can easily become a home office, guest bedroom, playroom, home gym, music room or sewing space. If you're considering completely renovating your garage design and making it into a fully developed and habitable area, make sure you comply with local ordinances and incorporate enough ventilation, light and insulation for seasonal temperature changes. Don’t feel limited by what others have already done — come up with your own unique garage ideas to create a space that’s all your own.

Best idea we discussed for exterior of in-law. - kmlacroix0710
The conversion of this iconic American barn into a Writer’s Studio was conceived of as a tranquil retreat with natural light and lush views to stimulate inspiration for both husband and wife. Originally used as a garage with two horse stalls, the existing stick framed structure provided a loft with ideal space and orientation for a secluded studio. Signature barn features were maintained and enhanced such as horizontal siding, trim, large barn doors, cupola, roof overhangs, and framing. New features added to compliment the contextual significance and sustainability aspect of the project were reclaimed lumber from a razed barn used as flooring, driftwood retrieved from the shores of the Hudson River used for trim, and distressing / wearing new wood finishes creating an aged look. Along with the efforts for maintaining the historic character of the barn, modern elements were also incorporated into the design to provide a more current ensemble based on its new use. Elements such a light fixtures, window configurations, plumbing fixtures and appliances were all modernized to appropriately represent the present way of life.
