Chicago Garage Remodeling

While you might think of a garage as simply the place where you house your car, homeowners all across the country have found some varied and interesting uses for this space that might get you thinking differently. From extra storage space to a spare or guest room, garage remodeling in Chicago and the country as a whole has many benefits; in fact, there's probably something you can do right now with the space in your garage that will make a difference in your property's functionality. It may even increase its market value, as well!

Minor Renovation
If you live anywhere near center city Chicago, garage remodeling is probably going to be on the lighter end of the spectrum. A covered place to park is a great thing in any city, but in a place as densely populated and prone to nasty weather Chi-town, a garage in the city is priceless. That doesn't mean, however, that you can't do some small improvements to make the space even better.

In most cases, the storage space and shelving in a garage can be vastly improved from the existing system by a bit of careful planning, and only a few new additions. Space on walls and on the ceiling is often wasted, leaving a sense of clutter and disorganization elsewhere. By taking the time to reorganize and do the job right, many homeowners are surprised at how much better they can make their garages look, and how little money they have to spend in the process. You may even want to hire a designer to have a look at the space and make a plan for you.

Major Remodels
A more involved project may require a bit more time and money, but the benefits will be greater, as well. If you view the space as a blank slate with which you can do anything, a lot of ideas will start coming to mind. Guest rooms, game rooms, workshops, and home offices are all possibilities. In fact, some choose to create a whole separate apartment complete with kitchenette and bath for their garage remodels. Chicago garage remodeling to this extent might require a little more attention to detail than it would in some other cities, because insulation and heating will be such a concern for so many months of the year. Additionally, this is probably a project better suited to the more suburban areas of the metro area, as parking in the city is such a high commodity.

Prices
Basically, this type of project can cost as much or as little as you want it to. Adding a few extra shelves to remove a bit of clutter will only cost a couple dollars and a bit of elbow grease. However, for more involved garage remodeling, Chicago residents might end up paying $50,000 or more. Complete Chicago garage renovation is, however, very likely to be far less expensive than a traditional addition to your home, as much of the structure and even some of the wiring and ductwork you'll need to do it successfully is already in place. Remodeling a garage in a densely populated city is also preferable in many instances to adding on because you won't be taking away any lawn or landscaping. Grass and trees are a commodity in a big city, as well, and converting a garage rather than building a new room from scratch will ensure that you get to keep the flora you've already got on your property in place.
