HOME RENO: GARAGE CONVERSION INSPIRATION

With our baby due in November, our children will soon outnumber the bedrooms in the house. Our oldest will be 16 then and very keen to have their own space, luckily we have a garage/granny flat that will be perfect, with a lot of imagination and hard work!

Although part of our garage (which is about 70 square metres) has already been turned into a granny flat, the part we want to renovate is still used as a garage, it has the most natural light and bags of potential.

I was so happy to hear my oldest loves the vibe of New York lofts and monochrome palettes. Definitely my genes running through her veins! We are wanting to leave the wooden beams along the ceiling exposed and painted white, add tongue and groove jib board to give the impression of wooden walls and create a loft bed. We will restore two large wooden framed windows that I love, and replace the garage door that opens to our courtyard with bifolding stackers. I’m really excited that I will be able to use a few of the items I have left over from my clothing boutique, like vintage industrial style light shades and a custom made iron freestanding clothing rack.

Here’s some spaces inspiring our renovation…

Now lets see if we can transform our garage into something incredible that resembles these amazing spaces! Hopefully we end up with a little slice of New York style right here in the Bay, I’m excited to get it under way and show you the results!
