Garages are full of creative possibility; no longer just a safe and secure place to store your car, garages have the versatility to become any space that you want or need to fit your lifestyle.

In our latest blog post, Bullet Garage Doors look at some of the brilliant alternative uses for your garage.


At Home Gym

With hectic work and personal schedules it can be difficult for many of us to find the time to attend a fitness class or visit a personal trainer. Why not give up the expensive gym membership and create your own home workout space? Getting started is easy – you can purchase workout equipment such as fitness benches for a very reasonable price and eventually look to invest in a home multi-system gym.

Cinema Room

One of our favourite alternative uses for your garage is to create an exclusive home cinema. For obvious reasons, we’d recommend investing in good soundproofing for this room. There are many excellent quality home entertainment systems available on the market and these will boost the limited internal sound of your television. If you really feel like pushing the boat out, you can purchase a 3D projector and screen and combine these with your surround sound for an incredible cinematic experience.


Properties become progressively more expensive as the number of bedrooms increase; when you have a growing family or guests wanting to stay over it can be difficult to sacrifice precious bedroom space for an office. One of the practical alternative uses for your garage is to turn this ideal space into a study. Great for those who are self-employed, having an area away from the main part of the house will help to create that work atmosphere and therefore increase productivity. Purchase a sleek wooden desk and surround with bookshelves and cabinets for plenty of storage space. You can also lay down a large rug for that added touch of style, warmth and comfort.

Creative Studio

Purchasing or renting studio space can be expensive, especially if you are an independant artist or just starting up your business. The versatility of a garage means you can use the room for lots of different creative endeavours; painting, sculpting, jewellery-making, and photography. Your garage is a space for your artistic skills to flourish.


It’s important to check any planning regulations or restrictions on your property before starting a project. We here at Bullet Garage Doors hope that we have given you lots of inspiration on the alternative uses for your garage and remind you not to forget the important finishing touch – a stunning new garage door!
