Another iterative training guide for you today. This one is on how you can change your garage from a pile of rubble into a beautiful home office that even apple would be proud of! Okay well maybe not that much but still this will be a guide on how you can get some garage shelving and turn your old space into something to be proud of!
How to Change Your Garage Into A Home Office
It’s easier than you might think, read on for more information.
Step 1: What you Need
- Garage racking – You need to store this stuff you own somewhere
- High quality Desk & Chair – This will make you want to come into your garage office, if you’re more old school then just pick up a quality Garage workbench.
- Motivation – Obviously nothing can be done without a strong bit of motivation.
Step 2: Initial Designs
Design where and how you will layout your new office, remember the keys to any interior designing are creating light and space. If you are an individual who is easily distracted then don’t face the window and remember that sometimes less is more. For example check some of the images below, these are some of the most popular offices in the United Kingdom and yet didn’t cost half as much as some other more traditional ones.
Step 3: Putting it all together
The next step is to put your ideas into action. Most of the time once you find everything you ordered and set it up you can see what you are missing or the most important aspects to completing a design. The key here is to not commit to any designs until you are sure the chairs / desks and windows are all in the correct position. Everything else can easily be changed but the most important factor is you want to be comfortable where you are working. As you can see from the images above simplicity is everything, don’t forget this.
Step 4: Reacting and re-evaluating
Once you have everything in place its important to not forget to re-evaluate what you are building. I recommend inviting people around and letting them say what they would change, sometimes you need a 3rd person’s view or even a 10th person, but if they recommend a great solution you hadn’t thought of, it will all be worth while!
Step 5: Get to Work!
Once your office is officially complete, don’t spend any time waiting, get straight back to work. Chances are it will have taken a couple of months to get the garage space how you want it, so once it is, utilise what you have built. Don’t stand around looking at what needs to go where for too long, remember the sole aim is you need to work and chances are you don’t need the racking in the exact correct position for this to make a difference!
