If you want to make your house more spacious, but you do not have the opportunity to build an extension to it, pay attention to the garage. Weigh what is more important to you - additional residential meters or the roof "over the head" of a family car.
Then think about such unfortunate moments, as, for example, the road leading directly to the window or the gate used earlier to open the hangar. But we will not talk about the mistakes of the designers.
It is better to look at brilliant solutions, as a result of which even the most attentive observer does not recognize in the resulting extension a once-parking box.
Dear readers of Small Interiors, take a look at the pictures, and if at least one of these wonderful rearrangements inspires you, leave the car on the street!

Traditional patio, project from Menter Architects LLC
The architect Margaret Menter turned the parking space into a children's playroom and a creative corner for the whole family. They can be reorganized as the child grows up and changes in their needs.
Sports hall and pavilion for parties, the project Menter Architects LLC
Now, while the kids have not grown up, the space includes playing, sports equipment and a place for the display of artistic abilities. Everything can be easily dismantled, and the room will turn into a party pavilion.

Now it's hard to believe that part of this house with a chimney surrounded by windows was used before for the garage.

Being in cozy living room, you'll never guess that once in this room stood a lawn mower.
Soft upholstery and antique finds from the market town of Round Top, Texas state, give the finish a special charm.
Hangar before transformation
Таким было пространство гаража, когда его увидел архитектор Pi Smith из Smith & Vansant Architects перед началом капитального ремонта.
Жилое функциональное помещение после преобразования, проект Smith & Vansant Architects PC
Now here is a special "mud alley" where family members can hang their snow-covered or wet clothes, dismantle the mail and leave the wet boots to dry next to the wood-burning stove.

Not far from the "mud alley" is a comfortable and bright room.
Speaking about the alterations of the garage, we can not fail to mention the magnificent project of Michelle de la Vega - designer, artist and welder in one person. She turned her parking lot with an area of 23 m2located in Seattle, in a full-fledged housing.
The open space in industrial style has its tiny mini-kitchen, bedroom in the attic and bathroom, which has become the only extension to the old car box.
Operating fireplace and steel sculptures made by Michelle de la Vega create a cosiness in the open-plan living room.
