The garage is an extension of any house. It’s so much more than just a place to park the car or store some stuff.
It’s design can impact the whole homeowner’s experience as well as provide extra space for family time.
During the pandemic, many people took up outdoor hobbies, says Laurel Vernazza, home design expert at The Plan Collection. As a result, space to store outdoor gear such as kayaks, paddleboards, golf clubs and bicycles tops the list of garage needs.
The pandemic also fueled requests for more quiet spaces away from the main part of the home, and garages sometimes served as a retreat, a home office or a gym.
Though it may not rank as high as the desire for an updated kitchen or owner’s bathroom, having a finished garage with flexible space has moved up on many buyers’ wish lists.
For many, the garage is as important as any room in the house.
