Your garage has valuable floor space; don’t let it go to waste! If you don’t plan on storing your vehicles in your garage, you have plenty of other options. These creative ideas will get you thinking about how you can best utilize this space.

Yoga Studio

You’ve heard of the at-home gym, but what about a personal yoga studio? It’s a fairly easy setup. Add some gentle lighting, cushy flooring, wall mirrors, and voilà! You’ve got the perfect place to get your chaturanga on. Open your garage door to let in fresh air while practicing!

Basketball Court

If square footage and ceiling height allow, then an indoor basketball court may be the perfect way to use your garage. An indoor court allows you and your family to enjoy your favorite game all year long. Industrial-size fans, overhead lighting, and lockers make a great addition to your indoor court. During warmer months, you can even extend your court out onto the driveway.

Music Studio

Giving your ten-year-old a drum set may have seemed like a really good idea at the time. If you need a break from your child’s (or spouse’s) music practice, your garage may offer the perfect solution. Add some soundproof wall coverings and whatever features will help your family musicians get their groove on.


Garages can be useful for outdoor entertaining, but if you don’t want to just sit around in a bunch of lawn chairs, you can kick it up a notch by creating a space specifically for relaxing and entertaining. Try adding a full bar, complete with all of your favorite features. Be sure to choose a fun garage door to complete your prized hangout, and your guests will love relaxing in your one-of-a-kind space.

Home Theater

Why not vamp up your own home movie theater? In-home theaters are a luxury that many floor plans can’t accommodate, so consider taking it out to the garage! Add a projector screen, oversized couches, and a sound system, and bring the silver screen right into your home.

Garden Center

Your garage is a great place to store your gardening tools and supplies. You can also use your garage during off-season months to keep your plants safe and protected from the elements. To take it to the next level, add windows and heat lamps to design your own greenhouse. By using your garage as a gardening workspace, you’ll be able to exercise your green thumb in any weather conditions.
