Creating an ‘all-inclusive’ home has become increasingly popular over the last few years; a place where you can work, exercise, relax, and entertain. But where does one find the space? An under-utilised garage. While some properties are lucky enough to maintain the best of both worlds with a double or even triple garage, homeowners are more often than not willing to forego auto storage for a more practical daily usage such as an extra bedroom or stylish home office.
Is your garage fulfilling its potential? If not, get in touch with a local Renovation Consultant and arrange a consultation to discuss a garage conversion.

The freedom to work from home is great. But without a designated workspace, distractions can quickly become overwhelming. As the option to work remotely becomes the norm, former commuters are opting for garage-to-home office conversions. Built-in storage, bespoke interiors, and soundproofing are amongst the most popular selections when it comes to home office design.
But popular garage conversion ideas aren’t limited to the WFH’ers. Custom sports storage is well suited to the North Sydney and Hornsby lifestyle. Temperature and humidity controls, space-saving ceiling racks, and smart security systems are ideal for any sports enthusiast wanting to protect their equipment and enhance its longevity.
