Make your garage your new hobby room!

We’re all aware of the importance of sitting tight at home at the moment. To stay positive, many people are seizing the opportunity to try a new hobby or rekindle an old one.

Yet with households busier than normal, how do we find the room to pursue these new activities? Commandeering the dining room table to create some art, or learning a musical instrument without annoying others can prove impossible... you really need a spare room.

The simple solution is to make better use of your GARAGE SPACE, by creating a beautifully organised room for your new hobby, away from the house.

We’re all aware of the importance of sitting tight at home at the moment. To stay positive, many people are seizing the opportunity to try a new hobby or rekindle an old one.

Yet with households busier than normal, how do we find the room to pursue these new activities? Commandeering the dining room table to create some art, or learning a musical instrument without annoying others can prove impossible... you really need a spare room.

The simple solution is to make better use of your GARAGE SPACE, by creating a beautifully organised room for your new hobby, away from the house.

Create an organised space for enjoying your new hobbies!

Here’s the TOP FIVE ‘booming’ hobbies, which we believe a tailored garage would be absolutely perfect for!

No.5 - LEARNING A MUSICAL INSTRUMENT

Sales of keyboards and guitars have soared, as many people are using the opportunity to acquire a musical skill. Online tutorials and training apps have proved popular, but where do you go while you master your craft? The garage can be a great space to practice in, especially if you fit floor tiles, wall and ceiling panels to reduce the ‘echo -chamber’ effect. A wall mounted TV will also provide convenient access to your instruction videos as you hone your skills! It’s the place to nurture  the ultimate Garage Band! (sorry... we couldn't resist the pun!)

No.4 - ART, CRAFTS AND MODELMAKING

Creative projects are a proven way to cope with stress. Suppliers of craft materials have seen a surge in demand, not only for activities to keep children occupied but for projects that adults are adopting to relax with. Adapting your garage into your own art studio can be the perfect way to create that much-needed oasis of calm... while keeping any mess you make out of the house!

No.3 - GARDENING

With government advice restricting access to public spaces, staying connected with nature is an important part of everyone’s sense of wellbeing. Having an organised area in your garage for sowing seeds, potting up, or building the garden structures you’ve long promised yourself, offers a much better solution than a cramped, stuffy shed, and gives you the option to include a sink unit to have water conveniently to hand.

No.2 - DIY

Hitting that ‘to do’ list has been an obvious one for many. Yet having an organised space to tackle those tasks can be tough, especially if they involve power tools, dust and noise. If the weather rules out working in the garden, where do you go? If you can rid your garage of the clutter, you can create the organised space you need, with wall storage for hanging tools and sturdy surfaces for working upon.

No.1 - EXERCISING AT HOME

Exercising at home has without doubt been the biggest shift in the public’s leisure pattern. Whether it’s following Joe Wicks as part of the kids’ home-school PE lesson, or setting up your home gym or Zwift cycling room, it seems every family is reaping the benefits of having a more active lifestyle. However, these activities require an organised space to make them comfortable... the living room is far from ideal.
