In this living room, a modern sectional sofa is situated in front of a large screen television to provide plenty of seating and an optimal viewing area for screenings of the family's favorite movies. Shelving and cabinets in the far corner provide a place for storage and display, while a fireplace to the left of the television warms the space. A window lets in plenty of natural light, and recessed lighting helps to give additional light to the space.

"Some of the best garage conversions are those that take long-term uses and versatility into account," says Ron Cohen, CEO of Garage Conversions.
