Gable garage with roller doorIf you love entertaining, it’s ideal to have spaces around your home where you can host family and friends all year around. As the sun sets on summer, you may be thinking your days and evenings of entertaining outdoors is also coming to an end. However, this doesn’t have to be the case. Rather than using your garage solely to park your cars, you can turn it into the ideal place to catch up with family and friends during winter.

Read on to learn a few tips on how to turn your garage into the ideal space to entertain during winter including:

  • Power
  • Food and Drink Storage
  • Furniture

Power

If there is no power to your garage, you may consider having some power sources professionally installed. Having power to your garage will allow you to add lighting, whether fixed or portable, and use other appliances and equipment in your garage when entertaining. When it comes to adding power to your shed this should be installed by a professional who can advise on the best way to add power to your shed and ensure it is installed correctly and safely. 

Food and Drink Storage

Most catch ups with family and friends aren’t complete without food and drinks. Rather than having to walk in and out of the house to gather food and drinks, food and drink storage in your garage will have food and drinks on hand. Depending on the size of your garage you may choose to have a full size fridge or bar fridge in your garage. Less permanent ways to store food and drink can include eskies or tubs.

Garage for EntertainingFurniture

Whether a place for people to sit or something to gather around, furniture is normally used when entertaining. Seating options can include stools, couches or chairs while trestle tables or high tables are a great to sit or stand around. Upcycle old furniture or seek out some items at a cheap cost from second hand stores.
