4 Things To Consider When Making Garage Plans

Thinking of building a garage? Well, you have some homework to do. This task requires some hard thinking. There is a bunch of factors to consider when planning a garage.

Whether it is to be a new garage or you’re planning to reconstruct the existing one, you must understand how you can use it at best.

Here is what you should weight on when planning a garage:

Your plans for the future

Well-defined garage plans must embed your plans for the future. Maybe your family begins with one car, but you plan to have more in coming year. You may as well consider purchasing bicycles, motorcycles or recreational vehicles. Your garage must simply be ready to welcome them all.

You may think that planning ahead is not that easy as you never know what is around the corner. Simply remember the pile of ideas which you’ve had since the moment you moved to the new house. E.g. do you plan having a pool? Well, garage can be used as a poolside cabana. Exciting!

Our advice- have a 10-year plan in your head!

Lacking space in your house

Remember the times you wanted to work in privacy, still, it was so noisy around. This is a compelling argument to consider a house office when making garage plans. Work in privacy guaranteed!

In general, it’s a good idea to consider having rooms in garage in case you often search for extra space around your house. Planning a guest apartment above your garage is also a wise idea. You must have wished about an extra bedroom many times before.

There never has been a house, which accommodates everything and gives no feel of having excess “stuff” around. Well, another reason for having extra space in your garage. It must accommodate your tools, sporting equipment and anything of rare use that has no space in the house.

Our tip- go bigger if possible. You’ll never complain of having extra storage space around!

Embedding your hobbies in garage plans

Let’s confess how many times you caught yourself dreaming of some private space to play guitar, draw a painting or make hand works. Right, hobbies love privacy! A room in garage can become an amateur’s paradise.

A cozy nook can give the feel of a separate apartment. Besides, motivating design can ignite your inspiration and boost some of your best works. Hobby rooms work best when built above the garage. Be ready to be pulled in by gravity every time you pass by your garage.

We strongly advise following your taste when decorating it. Design it the way you dreamed of since the very childhood. Who knows, maybe the environment in out-of-the-house hobby nook will expand the scope of your interests.

Design/ Maintenance

Finally yet importantly, the design matters. A garage must make an aesthetic statement to your property. Thus, make sure the contractor meets your exact specifications.

Besides, you should select right materials. Your garage must be a good fit for weather conditions of your area and demand budget-friendly maintenance for the future.

Thus, you should look beyond current needs when making garage plans. Like house repairs, building a garage is a huge investment so make sure it will serve you for a long time.

To sum up, an effective garage plan is all about ensuring comfort for you and your beloved ones.


How My Dream of Desired Garage Plan Became True

Before starting I want to tell you that building a desired garage is everyone’s dream which hardly comes true. And I was one of them. I started my garage or storage room with a design downloaded from an online website. I must tell you that it was a great design with affordability and the carpenter I hired was also fortunately a good person and a very experienced one. All the tools were of good quality and cheap price. I was lucky enough to get them for my garage plan.


The most important thing was that I got the permission for my garage plan very easily because it doesn’t include any illegal things or designs. My garage plan was fully safe with all legal designs as per government rules and regulations. First of all, I started with all the trash things and modified them into something beautiful. The important benefit of making a garage plan is you can turn your trash into useful art pieces and hangings.


My contractor advised me to buy some wallpaper and floor tiles which are available in the market at affordable prices. He also told me that I can use any type of design whatever I want. That was the part I liked the most because I was able to use my own creative art for walls and floor. I used my personal old paintings and graffiti designs and they looked beautiful as I imagined. I build this garage to an art studio for myself and to pursue my desire of painting. And this garage is big enough to plan an exhibition in it. I do not need any other halls or rented rooms for my exhibition. As I live by myself and do not own a car, I can use it for anything I want. I am not a rich man but I know how to do right things in an affordable way.


The wood was all natural from a forest and safe without any chemical side effects and long lasting. You can also buy wood from the market but you must make sure that it is safe and harmless. When we talk about the design, we want it to catch everyone’s eye with its different patterns. I used different kind of designs including old stuff of my home and garage. There two benefits of this were, I got a lot of free space in my home and my garage looked beautiful with those things.

Therefore, you must make sure that you get your desired plan with affordable prices.
