Family rooms can be designed economically by converting your garage into a special dining area or gymnasium. Many of us no longer keep our cars in the garage but use these rooms as a storage and often junk area. Such a shame when with a little imagination, they can become a terrifically special family room without the greater expense of building an extension.
You may wish to design a room for your exercise cycle, rowing machine and weights or perhaps a pool table, dart board. Perhaps a personal bar, your special family games room.
Families who have gained many food recipes from the numerous television programmes, may take it in turn to dine at each other’s home. I have seen some splendid redevelopments of garage/junk room turned into a magnificent dining area. With a little imagination home owners have created a special entertaining room where friends and family can get together for fun, dining and general entertainment .. with large plasma screens now available, you may wish to consider a home cinema.
Let me sow a few exciting thoughts . . . .
- All the guys getting together with a big screen on the wall to watch football and sports, rather than down at a local pub
- A dinner party with three or four families, each contributing a course
- Fun with the younger family members, stretching your imagination and teaching them to prepare food with some adventurous recipes
- Tapas evenings with guests bringing their own contributions and a challenge to find the very best wines at sensible prices
- Creating a dining area which is more than equal to a sumptuous restaurant with the very best of foods and wine for a fraction of the price
- All of this can be achieved at a very economical price, perhaps by replacing your garage door with a bay window, plastering the internal walls and laying modern Karndean Flooring
- Boxing in boilers plus other items and introducing some ornate and special features, which you wouldn’t necessarily do in a general room of your home
