1. Mud room
If you like country walks or have a dog to exercise, maybe you have always thought how useful a mud room would be. More than just a utility space, this is a great idea for converting a small corner of your garage into a dedicated area for cleaning up before entering the house. With the help of DIY shelving, shoe storage, sink and moppable flooring, you will soon be in business. For an upscale finish, you can even board and batten the walls.

3. Multipurpose Remodel
By taking an imaginative approach to the use of your space, a garage or part of a garage can be remodelled into any number of useful things, such as a play area, laundry room, workshop, or home office.

Free up valuable space in your kitchen by relocating white goods into the garage. Chest freezers, washing machines and dryers can all find a home here, leaving you free to remodel or declutter your kitchen with extra storage.

5. Conversion to a Family Room
For a bigger project to sink your teeth into, if you need extra living space, why not look at a full garage conversion into a much-needed, permanent extra family room? A garage is a great size for an extra living room, bedroom or dining room, and you may not need planning permission.
