Many homes in Houston have the benefit of an attached or internal garage. But not many of us use this space to store our vehicles. So, how can we make the most of our garage space and turn it into a functional room?
Refresh Renovations have helped many homeowners across Houston embark on garage conversions that create greater space and functionality in their homes. From games rooms to studio apartments to mother-in-law suites, if you’re looking to convert your carport or garage, get in touch with your local Refresh Remodeling Consultant today.
Our garages and carports are often the most underused areas of our homes and, with many houses now sporting large driveways, garages have become redundant for car parking. Instead, garages are home to seasonal clutter stored in boxes and outdoor furniture gathering dust. If you’re craving extra space in your home, a garage conversion may be the perfect solution to your current challenges.
At Refresh Renovations, we can help you convert your garage or carport into a practical room you can use. Whatever you need the extra living space for, our Remodeling Consultants can offer design, construction and full project management services to maximize the potential of your home and add extra value to your property.

Homeowners across Houston are making the move to convert their garages into spaces that better serve their needs. The key trend of these garage conversions is to maximize existing space and prevent a costly relocation. For homeowners with children still living under their roof, a games room or home theatre could make your home the talk of the town (amongst their friends anyway!) Adding playful features, such as a bar and area to make snacks, will keep friends and family members of all ages entertained for hours.
Another growing property trend in Houston is the move to multi-generational living, reducing the need to move elderly parents to costly retirement complexes. A garage conversion to mother-in-law suite or granny flat could be the ideal transition for parents who value their independence and privacy. Installing large windows and patio doors will help turn your former garage into a room filled with natural light, providing your in-laws with a spacious, comfortable and liveable space.
Alternatively, a garage conversion can be undertaken to create a home office as we spend more time working from home.
Yet another use of the converted garage is, of course, the man cave, a popular ‘blokes only’ space in the home. But a growing trend is that of the “she sheds”, perfect for any female who needs some time away in a quiet space.
