In today’s times more and more people are using their concrete sectional garages for other purposes than storing their vehicles. This is also because space is often in short supply for some people and so rather than buy a new house or build an extension, which would cost tens of thousands of pounds, they choose a concrete sectional garage as it offers a solid, secure outbuilding.
Some of the uses for concrete garages are home offices. This allows you to separate your work and home life whilst allowing you to remain in one place. This can save a lot of money on renting office space, travel expenses, heating and other running costs. Although you may need to declare your home office to your mortgage and insurance companies, the costs and other benefits of working from home, far outweigh those of renting office premises elsewhere. It is so convenient to be able to get to work in seconds rather than hours, allowing you to spend quality time with family and taking the stress out of the commute.
Other uses for concrete sectional garages include turning it into a home gym. You would be surprised just how much equipment you can get into a concrete garage, as a minimum you could get a weights machine, treadmill and punch bag into even the most standard garage. Again, the costs you save compared to paying a commercial gym membership over the years, can be huge. furthermore, you are far more likely to work out if you don’t have to go far to do so! You could even fit a good hours workout in before you go to work or when the children have gone to bed. With the installation of mirrors, a sound system and lighting, you could have quite a good set up.
Other uses can include an entertainment room, you could put a table tennis table in or maybe a pool table. Some people use their concrete garages for home theatre rooms. With some comfy seating, a big screen TV, lighting and carpet, your basic concrete sectional garage could be totally transformed into a home cinema.
With space being so short, a lot of people use their garages as spare rooms. With some carpet, heating, lighting and soft furnishings, there is no reason why the garage can’t become a cosy bedroom. Perhaps your child is at that awkward age when they want their independence but isn’t quite old enough to live on their own. Using your concrete sectional garage as a spare room gives your child the independence they are looking for whilst allowing you to check on them to make sure they are OK. They get the benefits of their own space and you get to know they are safe.
When considering getting a concrete garage, look out for one that is quality and secure. Security is more of an issue than ever so make sure you get the correct locks and you will be able to enjoy your garage for many years to come, whatever you decide to use it for!
