How Can I Use My Garage?

Most people assume that a garage can only be used for a few purposes, like storing cars, providing extra space for basement overflow, creating a man cave, or using it as a band stage for your children. However, as one of the leading overhead garage door repair services in Jordan, the Affordable Garage Door Repair team has seen creative ways of using the space that can be applied to anyone’s garage.

Here are some ways you can use your garage:

To Entertain Your Kids

While this covers the prospect of allowing your children to form a band, there are other ways your garage can be used to entertain your children.

For younger children, your garage offers a great place to allow them to use chalk to draw and play games. If your kids want to be artistic, they can even expand their creativity to include paints and graffiti your garage as a way of expressing the individuality of the home.

Alternatively, you can use it as a space where you can play games with your children without worrying about the impact on your house. Holding a haunted house around Halloween is a good option for this. It allows you to utilize the space fully, deck it out in spiders, cotton cobwebs, and use a fog machine without worrying about the clean up after.

To Entertain Company

In addition to entertaining your kids, you can use the garage as a great space to entertain company. By installing a mini-split heating and cooling system, you can use the garage as a great place to host parties where your house might not have space. Plus, if you open up the garage door, you can transform an indoor party into an indoor-outdoor event.

To Work

With a little bit of insulation, soundproofing, and a mini-split system, it’s possible to make your garage a home office space where you can work remotely or make strides to the next Great American Novel. With more and more people working remotely – both pre-COVID and during the pandemic – it’s essential to have space where you can work on tasks where you won’t be interrupted by family members running around the house.

Having a garage can sometimes be a headache, but with a little effort, it can be a great way to add to your home in meaningful ways. For more ways to use your garage or hire an overhead garage door repair service in Salt Lake County, call Affordable Garage Door Repair today!



The owner of this company is amazing. He is so caring and really wants the best for his customers. It is nice to find a company who really stands behind their work. I would use this company again.

Wow! My mom called them out for some work, and ultimately got a new garage door motor. She’d had some confusion about a her purchase, the work that was done, etc. The people at Affordable Garage Door were proactive about ensuring that she not only understood but was completely satisfied with the overall experience. They took time to explain the mechanisms of the door, how the new motor worked, what we can do to keep it well maintained either on our own or through them, and made sure to leave us feeling confident overall. Highly recommend!

I had a very old garage motor that I knew was on borrowed time. It finally broke and I called Affordable Garage. They sent Jason out to me who confirmed that I needed an upgrade. He gave me options with different prices that I felt were very fair. Jason was super nice and very professional. He did an awesome job and now I don’t have to worry about my garage going out on me. Thanks Jason!

Scott came out and an outstanding job updating me about my garage door and did an awesome job fixing my garage door! Definitely recommend this company for your upcoming needs!!
