The garage apartment has been transformed into a warm, open concept space. With a gaming area, a living space with a large screen TV, a kitchen and a dining area, this apartment is the perfect space that is perfect for entertaining.
The owners of this redesigned 1960s split level home wanted the garage apartment to have as much character as the interior of the main house, so they hired designers to create a rustic, craftsman oasis with modern touches. The walls and ceilings are swathed in wood that reflect the woods that surround the home, while the bed is nestled into the walls of the small space. Gray French doors separate the cozy sleeping quarters from the rest of the house.
To maximize every inch of the 600-square foot garage apartment, designers installed this custom-built folding barn door. It can slide over to enclose the bedroom or fold up to create a open plan flow across the space.
A cheerful riot of colors is at play in this bedroom, part of a garage apartment. Peach and white sheer curtains set apart a canopy bed while soft green chairs and multicolored and ruffled pillows add to the bold design.
Wendy Edwards of Designed to Dwell took advantage of her 10-foot ceiling by building a loft to store camping equipment, golf clubs and other belongings. She nailed 2x4s to the wall studs to create a built-in ladder.
This converted 1920s garage doubles as apartment space for visiting guests as well as a workspace for the owner. Much of the space, including door hardware and the concrete flooring, were left as-is, but the termite-damaged door frames had to be replaced.
Nestled in a historic neighborhood in Nashville, Tennessee, this home includes a main residence and a detached garage apartment. To give the garage a greater sense of privacy, it's separated from the main house by a fence and this custom gate, designed by a local artisan.
