It can be hard to find a sanctuary for yourself amid the chaos of home life. Turning your garage into an office space or studio may be the perfect solution to finding a sanctuary respite for work, art, or DIY projects. One of the main advantages of using a garage for these purposes is that it is distinctly separate from the rest of your home, limiting potential distractions. Additionally, if you plan to use the garage as an art or DIY studio, you have enough space to work on these projects without worrying about materials damaging your interior flooring or furniture.
Using your garage as a working space, you may decide on a garage door with larger window features that allow more natural light into your work area to prevent it from having a cave-like or enclosed feel. Letting in natural light can reduce your dependence on internal lighting, making the overall renovation less intensive, yet more energy efficient.
Once your space is designed, it is time to fill it with everything you need to use the space to its fullest. A desk is fundamental to any office, whether at work or at home. You will be needing a desk in your home office, however, the sort of desk needed is dependent on the size of your home office space.
You can either purchase a minimalist desk or a traditional office desk. Also, you can creatively turn a table, a counter, or a high leveled flat surface into your office desk which can be used for work and for hobbies as you desire.
You may also want to ensure that you have adequate electricity, access to outlets, and maybe even install some USB or USB-C wall outlets to charge your smart devices in your new space. Finally, check that your WiFi is strong enough in the new garage space to allow you to do all the things that you will want to do in your working space. A Wifi booster may be in order, or you can even consider hard wiring your computer into your internet system if you need that level of reliability.
