Great Garage Upgrades: 7 Alternative Uses for Your Garage

If you’re looking for custom organization and storage so you can make room in your garage space for all of your cars, then we’ve got you covered at Strickland’s Custom Garages. But if you’re looking to make even more out of your garage upgrade, that’s our other specialty. We turn garage renovations into dream garage makeovers to provide you with a truly multifunctional space. Here are seven awesome alternative uses to consider for your garage upgrade.

1. The Man Cave
Transform your garage space into a man cave fit for a king with a built-in entertainment center, TV, surround-sound stereo system, and even a bar space for drinks with the dudes. Install a mini-fridge to keep cold ones within reach. Closed cabinetry and open shelving keep snacks, dishware and glassware organized. Level up with a pool table, dart board, and comfy seating like couches and recliners.


2. The She Shed
Like the man cave, the she shed provides much-needed “me” time just a step away from your busy home space. Consider wall-to-wall organizers for craft and gardening supplies with built-in countertops for a garage workspace. No matter the hobby, we’ll help you organize your supplies with durable cabinetry, pull-out drawers, hooks, hangers, bins, and baskets so everything is right where you need it.

3. Your Home Office
As more and more companies are going remote, the home office is an ever-more common need. Rather than sacrificing a corner of your bedroom or living space, why not move your office into the garage? We’ll provide everything you need for your workspace, including ample counter space, desk drawers, open cabinetry for office supplies and printers, and even locked cabinetry for confidential paperwork and files.

4. A Home Gym or Studio
You could go for a fancy gym membership (and proceed to wait in line for the machines every time), or you could bring the gym to your garage. We’ll help you organize your workout station with storage for your weights and open cubbies for towels and accessories. If you’re considering starting your own yoga or meditation studio, we’ve got you covered with clean-line closed cabinetry in neutral tones and overhead storage to free up valuable floor space.

5. A Home Theater
If movie night is a little too bright in your living room, consider creating a home theater for your garage upgrade. We’ll help build the ultimate entertainment center with a wall-mounted TV and speakers, hideaway cords, and even blackout shades.

6. A Guest Bedroom
Whether your children are back from college or your parents need extra care, converting a garage into a bedroom is a great way of creating a room where there wasn’t one before. The Murphy bed safely pops down and folds up as needed, and wall-to-wall cabinetry can easily store all of their extra stuff.

7. A Game Room
Did someone say party? You’ll make the whole family (and the neighbors!) happy when you transform your garage space into a party-friendly game room. Closed cabinetry stores board games and puzzles, an entertainment center is ideal for video games. With our savvy storage solutions, you can make plenty of space for play.
