How To Make The Most Of A Heated Garage This Winter

Updated: Aug 10

When the temperature dips below freezing, a heated garage can be a welcome feature in your home.

Here are a variety of ways you can use this space for things other than simply keeping your car warm.


Give your kids a place where they can make crafts, build forts, play with their toys and get messy. Use plastic totes to easily organize toys and craft supplies, and be sure to install flooring that will minimize the impact of falls.


Home Office

More people are working from home these days, and your heated garage may be the perfect place for your personal office. Keep in mind you may need to get a Wi-Fi repeater system if you’re garage is too far from your home’s internet router.


Home Gym

Gym equipment is big, bulky and takes up a lot of room. Your heated garage, however, may be to perfect place for it. Put down rubber mats on the floor and set up a rack on the walls for weights and other equipment. You’ll have one less excuse for not staying in shape.



A heated garage is fairly easy to convert into an extra bedroom. All you need is sufficient insulation and electricity. Once these basics are covered, you can install flooring, paint the walls and add any other features required to make the space cosy. You may even be able to earn extra money by offering short-term rentals.


Did you know you can purchase and install garage doors made of glass? Indeed, a heated garage can be a great place to grow things, with a few modifications. Proper insulation and sufficient light and ventilation are key.


Workshop or studio

If you’re a woodworker, small engine mechanic, musician, artist or crafter, a heated garage can become a space where you work year-round. Hang shelves, peg boards and racks to maximize the amount of available floor space.


Home theatre

Insulated walls and doors in a heated garage can also be made soundproof. Point a projection screen television on a garage wall and mount some surround sound speakers to create a home theatre experience for your family members and friends.
