When it comes to garage office conversion, lighting is crucial for creating ambience. Skylights and large window panels are excellent ways to take advantage of natural light. Plan out where you want your windows first to take advantage of the most natural light available in your area, than work the rest of your design around it.


A well-designed entryway will ensure that your new office looks integrated with the rest of your home instead of standing out like a sore thumb. Consider adding landscaping, steps, or signage to frame your garage door.

Deciding what to do with your garage door during a conversion can be tough. A specialty, simulated wood, and steel door with all create a difference effect. For example, a specialty door comprised of mostly windows will have a sleeker look and let in more light than a simulated wood door, which has a more traditional feel.


When you design a garage, flooring can make or break your vision. Whether you decide to keep the concrete and touch it up or replace it with something more inviting, make sure to work the style into your plan.

For example, concrete can be used to accent an industrial style, but may not work for traditional décor. Another way to highlight flooring is by using area rugs. Rugs will not only add character to your new office space, but also transition the room into separate zones.
