Use the space above the garage

Use the space above the garage

Turning the space above your garage into the living space has several benefits.Sons and daughters who return from a college, or come for a visit, will want a bit of privacy, so this is one benefit. Elderly people can also use that space as well.  Beside this, it can increase the value of your home. In order to make this space into a living space, you will have to do some work. If that space already has insulation, flooring and walls are done, you won’t need to do a lot. In another case, when you must do everything, you will need a lot of time and money.

The first steps are linked to insulation and electrical wiring. These two things are basic, and should be done in the beginning. Then, you must put up drywalls and finish compound. Your walls will be ready to paint. You can also use wallpapers, textured plaster, paneling or anything else you like. Adding kitchen appliances isn’t needed, but a small fridge and a microwave are something that every person should have. Bathroom is required as well. Rugs or carpets may help in warming the cold attic floor, so they are useful.

The next step is furniture. You can divide the attic room without walls in living and sleeping areas. One trick you can use is using area rugs. They are a cheap solution and they define (only visually) bedroom and living area. You can place sofa in the middle of the room, facing chairs. This will make an inviting area. If nobody lives in the room, you can use it for anything you want.
