At Neighborhood Garage Door Service of Raleigh, NC, we’ve talked about lots of ways to utilize your garage space. A lot of them seem to center on mancaves or what guys can do in their own personal getaway. However, garage spaces aren’t an exclusive club for men with no girls allowed! Here are some ideas on creating a ladies’ retreat in your garage.
Putting on a girls’ night out can be a fun way to get away and enjoy some fun with your girlfriends. However, sometimes it can be easier to host a spur-of-the-moment girls’ night in at your house. Here’s where a get-together space in your garage can be an awesome bonus to your home.
Outfit your garage with some stunning furniture on some choice area rugs. Set up a wine bar for tastings or just something to sip anytime. Install a big-screen tv and host a movie night or pick a show to binge and make a long night of it with friends.
Dedicated Work Space
You may be a work at home mom or someone who works outside the home but has to bring work home with you a lot. If this is you, you know the difficulty of trying to do work while household chores and kids are calling your name all day. Try using your garage as an office to serve as a separate, dedicated workspace with no distractions.
Make sure you have a good wifi signal for your laptop so you can work without your computer bogging out. Get a desk with plenty of space and drawers to store anything you may need to have handy. Go ahead and buy yourself a comfortable chair that will help you focus on your work instead of a hard seat.
How often do you get time alone with your thoughts to just be quiet and still? If you’re honest, the answer is likely “not often enough!” Consider turning your garage, or at least a small nook in it, into a personal retreat of quiet space. This can make a great space for your alone activities:
- Yoga – Put down plenty of padding, even below your yoga mat. Install a tv for playing any instructional videos you like.
- Meditation – Do you use a mat, or furniture to sit and be still? Maybe you’ll want a sound system to play calming music?
- Reading a book – Make sure you have a lamp close to your favorite reading chair.
- Journaling – A desk can be helpful here.
- Sipping coffee or a glass of wine- A good chair and small table is all you need here!
