Converting a Garage Into a Functional Space: Pros and Cons

Through the years, we accumulate a lot of stuff in our homes, such as furniture and home décor, which can make our space tight and crowded. It’s common for homeowners to convert their attics and basements or invest in a room addition to make more space but many have also thought of converting their garages into a fully functional living space.

Garage conversions are abundant in areas where real estate can be really expensive. In this age where space-sharing platforms such as Airbnb and VRBO are prevalent, a converted garage can be greatly beneficial for homeowners since it can help cover the cost of their mortgage.

The Pros

The best things about garage conversions is that you get to preserve your yard space. There will also be no need for you to spend on new materials and labor since the foundation, walls and the roof have already been established. It also gives homeowners income opportunities by having the converted garage rented out.

The Cons

Despite these advantages, there are also downsides to garage conversions. Tools and machinery typically stored in the garage will have to either be disposed of or stored somewhere else. But if you have an existing shed or a large basement, moving things from the garage won’t be a problem. It may also cause a decrease in home value since most buyers place a premium on parking spaces and this it lost when garages are converted.
