The most basic garage ideas all say the same thing. You can transform your garage into a workshop, family room or even an apartment, but not much else. However, if you expand your mind, you will see that the possibilities are endless…you do not have to stick with the same humdrum designs as everyone else. There are also newer, more unique garage design ideas you can utilize for your garage.

For example, you can use your garage to create an indoor pool area. If your space is small, consider installing a lap pool. When these pools are powered, they send a gentle current for you to swim against. And for the times that you prefer to relax, you can turn off the power and enjoy the standing water.

Another unique idea would involve turning the garage into a dance club. Vinyl or wood would work for the floor, but if you want the wildest design consider getting LED flooring. With LED floors, the tiles light up to the beat of the music. They are very expensive, but for an at-home club, you only need a small section of flooring. The rest of your design could consist of wet bars, stools and other furniture you would typically find in a club.

Now, if you prefer to use your garage as a workshop only, there are ways you can improve your existing design. For storage, consider creating shelves on the ceiling instead of cluttering up the room with tool boxes. Such storage works well for off-season items that create clutter the majority of time. Your other, more widely used items can be stored on peg boards and inside cabinets.

To expand on your workshop, think about utilizing your attic area. This approach is widely forgotten in garage design, as most people think attics are only good enough for storage. However, many are large enough to create a small bedroom, or even a family room. All you would have to do is drywall the area, add electricity and then furnish the space. If you want to create an escape of sorts form your workshop, just get a flat-screen TV and a sofa or two. During the times you have to babysit your kids, they will love such an arrangement. Just make sure you create a decent set of stairs from the garage to the attic, (as the pull down ladders might be trickier to climb). A small, curved stairway would work well for this purpose, though depending on how much space you have, you might be able to build a traditional staircase.

In conclusion, if you want to create a snazzier escape to get away from the stresses of home, consider taking advantage of some of the garage ideas mentioned above. While they may deviate from what is normally perpetuate, one fact holds true: they will make your garage space livelier and more comfortable. In addition, since they are so unique, they will cause you to be the talk of the town. Even your guests will feel as if they have escaped to someplace else when they come visit you.
