Visbeen Architects
The best of past and present architectural styles combine in this welcoming, farmhouse-inspired design. Clad in low-maintenance siding, the distinctive exterior has plenty of street appeal, with its columned porch, multiple gables, shutters and interesting roof lines. Other exterior highlights included trusses over the garage doors, horizontal lap siding and brick and stone accents. The interior is equally impressive, with an open floor plan that accommodates today’s family and modern lifestyles. An eight-foot covered porch leads into a large foyer and a powder room. Beyond, the spacious first floor includes more than 2,000 square feet, with one side dominated by public spaces that include a large open living room, centrally located kitchen with a large island that seats six and a u-shaped counter plan, formal dining area that seats eight for holidays and special occasions and a convenient laundry and mud room. The left side of the floor plan contains the serene master suite, with an oversized master bath, large walk-in closet and 16 by 18-foot master bedroom that includes a large picture window that lets in maximum light and is perfect for capturing nearby views. Relax with a cup of morning coffee or an evening cocktail on the nearby covered patio, which can be accessed from both the living room and the master bedroom. Upstairs, an additional 900 square feet includes two 11 by 14-foot upper bedrooms with bath and closet and a an approximately 700 square foot guest suite over the garage that includes a relaxing sitting area, galley kitchen and bath, perfect for guests or in-laws.

Mosby Building Arts
A renowned St. Louis mid-century modern architect's home in St. Louis, MO is now owned by his son, who grew up in the home. The original detached garage was failing. Mosby architects worked with the architect's original drawings of the home to create a new garage that matched and echoed the style of the home, from roof slope to brick color. Several pieces from the original garage were salvaged to be used on and around the new detached garage. New landscaping was part of this design-build project by Mosby Building Arts.

Garages often become the homes for the unloved spillover from the rest of your house. Originally built for a practical purpose, the funny thing about our garages is that when most of us open our garage doors, it’s not our cars we see. Instead what greets us behind the garage door is stuff; lots and lots of stuff. Garages may technically have been designed to protect our cars, but in fact we often rely on this extra space as much-needed storage.

Well the decline ends here – it’s time to begin a garage revolution and turn these spaces into practical or even beautiful additions to our homes. From better garage storage to garage conversions, there’s no shortage of options for designing, improving and optimising your garage. Take a look at some of the garage ideas on Houzz to help you start to plan your project.

How do I make the most of my garage?


If your garage needs to double as a storage space as well as a home for your car you should start by getting it organised and then you can look into some clever garage storage ideas. Floor space in a garage is important, so utilise the three big walls on offer by lining with free standing garage shelving units or floating shelves to keep your tools, cans of paint and everything else out of toes’ and tyres’ way. There are also companies that will fit out your garage to spec with built in garage storage solutions that make the most of its space. For bikes you might opt for a compact floor mounted bike rack or get them up and out of the way by mounting a rack on the wall next to your garage shelving. If you are lucky enough to have a garage with a high roof then consider larger garage storage ideas such as installing a mezzanine, which will get all the clutter off the floor for good.

When it comes to your garage exterior you can adapt the style by choosing the type, material and colour of your garage doors. There are a wide selection available, including roller, up and over, sectional and side hinged garage doors in timber, steel, aluminium and composite materials, with panels, windows and all sorts of colours. Think about how the doors will encroach on any inside garage storage space but then the main thing to focus on is how the garage doors will look and operate on the outside. Look at the rest of your house exterior to decide on a style and talk to a professional garage door maker about the advantages of the different door types.

How do I go about a garage conversion?


Sometimes the extra space the garage offers is not just about storage – it also gives us an opportunity to extend our houses. Garage conversions make a great space away from the main house to build a home office, a home gym, or you could even build soundproofing into the walls for the ideal home cinema and entertainment room. The upside of garage conversions is that internally transforming an existing structure circumvents the headache of planning permission. However, making such as basic structure habitable is a big job and still subject to extensive building regulations, so do hire a professional if you’re considering a full garage conversion. For a fully managed build, look for garage conversion specialists who will offer end-to-end service. Considerations for converting your garage include the installation of insulation and waterproof materials, opening windows (these must be at least 1/20th of floor area), a new foundation if necessary to support new walls, the replacement of flat roofs and a new electricity supply for detached garage conversions. Externally, keep materials, decor and style consistent with main house so your conversion doesn’t look too much like an afterthought that’s been stuck onto its side. Taking a look at some other garage conversion ideas is a good way to find inspiration for your garage; you may not have thought about using the space in a particular way until you see garage conversion ideas from existing conversions around the world.
