Not everyone is lucky enough to have two garages, but if you’re among the blessed, you may have a hard time deciding what to use it for. Your main garage may house your cars, tools and supplies, leaving you with some wiggle room on that second space. Check out these five ways you can creatively use your second garage.
A good wine cellar, or wine garage as it were, must regulate humidity and light so your wine will still retain its taste in storage. You don’t need to devote the whole garage to your wine cellar; you can close off a smaller portion, leaving even more extra space for another use. You’ll need a humidifier, plenty of racks for storage, and low lighting. Go a step further and create a tasting room to go with the storage racks, featuring leather couches, bar and fancy glassware.
In the spirit of man caves, it’s time to reclaim your own individual space and set up a special game room for you and your buddies. Whether you need a secluded spot for your Wednesday night poker games or Saturday night dart tournaments, your significant other may be getting tired of the cigar smoke and beer cans that litter the main home. Use your second garage to set up a makeshift game room with folding chairs and tables, a stocked bar, and low lighting.
Watching a movie or Sunday football on the living room TV can be fraught with distractions, from pets to kids. Sometimes you just want to have your own space to comfortably recline in versatile theater chairs, make snacks from your popcorn machine and enjoy every detail of the big fight on your large screen TV. Perfect for family movie nights and entertaining neighbors, a home theater is a great use of extra space.
Whether your mother-in-law is getting on in years and needs a safe place to live or you frequently host old college buddies in from out of town, it always helps to have a separate space for them to relax in. This way, you don’t have to share the privacy of your main living area and you can give guests the personal space they need, too. You can even make a little extra cash on the side by renting out the guest house through sites like Airbnb and VRBO, or even to local college students.
