"This garage remodel was designed for a UCLA professor who wanted a stylish home office," says Ron Cohen, CEO of Pearl Remodeling. "Because of zoning restrictions at the time of the remodel, we could not legally convert the garage into a living space, so we kept the garage door operational and updated the interior so it could still be enjoyed as a workspace. We installed new drywall on all walls and ceiling, and light-colored flooring and paint to brighten up the room. Open shelving with complementary decor give this study a modern touch with lots of room to personalize the space."
