Make Better Use of Your Space: Detached Home Office

Detached Garage Home Office

Garages aren’t just for parking your car! If you’re undergoing a garage-office conversion, creating the perfect design can feel overwhelming. At Larry Myers Garage Doors, we’ve installed countless custom garage doors in Portland, Oregon and Vancouver, Washington, and our professional garage door design team is ready to help with your next project, whether it’s using your garage as a mini greenhouse or creating the quirky home office of your dreams. These garage office ideas can help you easily create a home office transformation that is as stylish as it is functional.

Garage Lighting

When it comes to converting your garage into an office, lighting is crucial in creating a productive ambiance. Skylights and large garage door window panels are excellent ways to take advantage of natural light while eliminating the darkness of a standard garage. Plan the placement of your windows first to take advantage of the most natural light available in your area, then work the rest of your design around it.

Entryway

A well-designed entryway will ensure that your new space looks integrated with the rest of your home while also giving you the ability to create a unique home office. Consider adding landscaping, steps, or signage to frame your garage door and boost your curb appeal.

Garage Door Aesthetics

Deciding what to do with your garage door during a conversion can be tough, but there are many benefits of using garage doors in indoor living spaces. Specialtysimulated wood, and steel garage doors will all create a different aesthetic effect. For example, a specialty garage door comprised of mostly windows will have a sleek look while bringing in natural light, and a simulated wood door will give a more traditional feel

Garage Flooring

When you design a garage, flooring can make or break your vision. Whether you like the industrial look of concrete or want to replace it with something more inviting for a more traditional office space, make sure to work the style into your plan.

You can also highlight flooring and emphasize décor by bringing in area rugs. Regardless of whether you’re going for a quirky home office or sophisticated space, rugs will add character and transition the room into separate zones.
