Things to consider before you go ahead:

Light - do you need to add windows or skylights?
Amenities - is there adequate power supply and enough outlets?
Do you need a water supply?
Insulation - heating - cooling.
Entry points and access to the rest of the home.
Where will you store all the things that currently occupy the garage?
Do you need planning permission for any restructuring?
Check building regulations and make sure safety issues like fireproofing and ventilation are addressed.
A designated home theatre space has multiple benefits, such as keeping the noise away from the rest of the home, enticing the teenagers to stay home and allowing for a big screen without dominating the rest of the living space.

Converting the garage for work or play can have some huge cost saving benefits, but it’s advisable to do your homework first.

Whatever you’re planning on using a garage for, an insulated garage door could make the space more agreeable. Check out Garador’s Insulated Series for door options.
