Garage Studio Space Inspiration & The Upcoming Year

Garage Studio Space Inspiration & The Upcoming Year House and Home – Garage Studio Inspiration

One thing we liked about our house when we were house hunting in Seattle was that it offered us a lot of flexibility. Even though it is a fairly modest house (1500 square feet of main floor living space), when you add in the basement level, the attached garage and even the good sized backyard, it really expands the potential!

We have always visualized a number of ways we could use our lower level in future years (besides everyday family activity) including as a place to expand our business, a rental opportunity or even as a place for my parents to live with us if they wanted to! All of those options are still on the table.

My office and business space as well as our laundry room are currently downstairs (and all the stuff we aren’t sure what to do with at the moment ends up down there, too. Anyone else have a basement like that? Hahah). So, while we feel quite settled in many ways, we still have plenty of things to work on this year.

Depending on other needs for space, we have even considered converting and organizing our garage (which we do not use for a car) into a studio space for our business.

Our Garage (when we moved in!)

I can imagine all sorts of potential in here. I have already started my inspiration file of possibilities (I’ll show you a few in today’s post!).

This week I’m working on a post to bring everyone up to date on our progress in this house so far (with before and afters), as well as our plans and goals for the upcoming year! :)

What are some other topics and subjects you’d like to read about this year?

Enjoy this inspiration for converted garage studio spaces!

Decorating with a Television In the Living Room

If you saw my last Life Lately post, you may have noticed that over Christmas break we had our TV on a console table in front of our living room fireplace. I got a few questions about that, so this post is inspired by those questions. :)

In all of our homes, we tend to leave the TV out of the main living room. We picture the living room as more of a ‘conversation space’ rather than a loud entertainment room, especially since our living space is pretty open to the rest of the house. Whenever we have family gatherings, though, we love watching movies together and playing games on the TV. We usually gather downstairs for that, but this year since we have our basement set up for some work projects we decided to bring the TV upstairs.

Having it up here for Christmas made me rethink the idea of how our living room would feel with a TV above the fireplace. Generally I always feel like that arrangement doesn’t seem ideal because of the height above a fireplace, but since we have more modest height ceilings in this house I think it would work. I gathered up some inspiration for living rooms with a TV and I think I’m warming up to the idea, especially if beautiful built-ins could be involved! What do you think? Do you have a TV in your living room or do you keep it in a separate space?
