Look! Garage Turned Classy Home Theater Bunker

After outliving years of college life with no garage whatsoever, the idea of using it for car storage may come across as appalling to some. Why use part of your house for storage when you could use it for living? Here's a few fresh ideas on how to turn that boring ol' garage into something worthy of an audience.

The main theme behind the majority of these overhauls are primarily hiding the fact that it's a garage. Throwing up sheetrock and curtains add to the realized room feel. Windows are optional, especially if you are going to throw in a projector, it'd probably be better if you do without.

However, before you make the jump and toss your poor little car outside into the Winter cold, make sure you realize the benefits and drawbacks of having such a decision. First of all, it's going to cost a whole lot of money to do such a conversion. You'll even be tempted to purchase a second television for the living room and even though we always push for a high-tech living space, that doesn't mean you need to waste money on extra tech you'll only be using once in a blue moon. On the other hand, if you have an awkward or tiny living room, this could be the answer you've been waiting for.

If you can settle with your car being out the cold in the morning, feel free to check out some more awesome ideas Electronic House. They have some pretty interesting spaces that make us want to think twice about turning our garage into a new room altogether.
